va - Las Cosas De La Vida [Discos Fuentes]

Another 80 cents tape I bought last week in a charity shop. This time it's a Discos Fuentes tape, and it contains many great tracks. The problem is the inlay info doesn't mention the band names, and I couldn't find anything on the web. No date either, but it should be sometime in the 70's.

Just what you need for this hot summer, sipping beer in the shade and chewing peanuts...

Barranca Del Muerto / Wild Latin tunes from the Mexican Metro

Here's a bunch of classic, cheesy, odd songs that you`re likely to hear while travelling in the Mexican Metro. Hundreds of Cumbia, Salsa and Mambo tunes packed on cheap DVDs sold by kids in every carriage. Hence the lack of information and the lack of sense.
