ShowBand USA - Una Linda Senorita 1982 Lp

I saw this album for the first time in 2006. The vinyl is an ultra rare. However the fans of music can find the songs for the digital downloading easily. In fact this album is tejano music. Tejano music was born in Texas. Although it has influences from Mexico and other Latin American countries, the main influences are American. This music genre has various categories of music and bands. Three major categories are Conjunto, Orchestra and Modern.
ShowBand USA is a representative of Tejano music. The band was formed in the 70s. They have released many albums until nowadays. This album was released in 1982 on Hacienda Records. It was recorded at Hacienda Recording Studios, Corpus Christi Texas. At that time, the members of the group were Robert Garcia on keyboards and vocals, Paul Garcia on vocals, Joseph De La Cerda on sax, percussion, synthesizer, Faustino Saenz on sax, Omar Ruiz and Roel De la Paz on trumpet, Israel Cantu on guitar, Rene Munoz on bass, Hector Gutierrez on keyboards, Richard Florez on drums and percussion.
All the lyrics are in spanish. Except for the songs "Let Me Down Easy" and "The Fire I Feel" which I will present. Both songs were written by Robert Garcia. Produced by Arnold Garcia and Robert Garcia.

Dorothy Moore ‎– Once More With Feeling 1978 Lp


I'm sorry for the delay. I was very busy. I had the opportunity to present Dorothy Moore and the single "Talk To Me-Every Beat Of My Heart / Lonelyabout five years ago. In my opinion Dorothy Moore deserved more recognition because she has recorded excellent songs in her career. I often hear some of them during the free hours of the day. I want to note that one of the best albums of Dorothy Moore is the album of 1978, called "Once More With Feeling". I suggest that everyone buy this record. It is worthy to have it in your personal collection.
It was released on Malaco Records and includes some brilliant songs. Participated in this album Don Barrett on bass, James Stroud on drums, Dino Zimmerman and Fred Knobloch on guitars, Carson Whitsett on keyboards. Backing vocals by Jeanette Williams, Jewel Bass, Kathy Young, Donna Rhodes, Charles Chalmers and Sandra Rhodes. Arranged by Charles Chalmers, Mickey Davis and Mike Lewis. Produced by James Stroud, Tommy Cough and Wolf Stephenson.
I have chosen four (4) tracks entitled "Special Occasion", "What Am I To Do", "Girl Overboard" and "(We Need More) Loving Time".
"Special Occasion" was penned by Sam Dees. The same song was recorded in the same year by Bill Brandon.

The song "Girl Overboard" was penned by Frederick Knight and Sam Dees.

The song "(We Need More) Loving Time" was also recorded in 1980 by The Dramatics.
