More Mexicans

At the beginning of the week I posted a track from "Ecos de Avandaro", a double CD of Mexican psychedelia that I picked up in Madrid last weekend. I have now had a chance to listen to it all the way through and there is some cracking stuff. So here are two more selections: "Ruidas En La Cuidad" by Los Monjes (1969) and "Vida" by Pajaro Alberto Y Conjunto Sacrosaurio (1974).

Although today's clip features the late Taiwanese superstar Teresa Teng, there is a connection. She kicks things off with her rendition of a Mexican standard before launching into a medley of hits from the 1950s. There is some truly groovy choreography to enjoy as well.
