Galicia De Maeloc / O Berro Seco
more precisions on this compilation CD at:
(especially the notes concerning the missing tracks)
For detail concerning the original LP’s (1979 and 1980), see:
(you can zoom on sleeve notes there)
NB: I have changed the listing slightly so that the original name of the ‘Marcha Escocesa’ would appear, thereby facilitating cross referencing…
Some of my favourite tracks on these classic albums include:
Muiñeira Vella de Mordomo (which I intend to submit; it works very well as a jig), A Bruxa (‘The Witch’, a beautifully haunting melody written by Anton Seoane which has made its way into the repertoire of some Irish bands), and an amazing three-parts jig whose name and origin I would like to know for certain (was it written by Xosé V. Ferreirós as the presentation suggests?)
I’ve temporarily renamed it ‘Jiga misteriosa y maravillosa’..¡!
I’ve never heard this tune played at sessions (or anywhere else than on this album for the matter) and no musician I played it to ever recognised it. I also scoured this data base and even left a message on Milladoiro’s website once without getting any feedback.
You’re help is most welcome. And…
¡Ayuda con la significación de los títulos también!
The tunes ‘Muiñeira’ and ‘Alborada’ have a cross-reference link to probably the wrong muiñeira or alborada in the database. Please paste here more appropriate, useful links to the tunes actually recorded on the album.
You might know an alternative name for those tunes too…
Re: A Galicia De Maeloc / O Berro Seco
This collection is missing one track from each album, most likely for space.
