Top 10 Venezuelan Albums

DJ Jose Luis

1. GUACO. Cómo Era y Cómo Es. It was supposed to be the album that would make the legendary Venezuelan band international stars. For many reasons it didn't...still a fantastic album with newer versions of old classics and new material.

2.OSCAR DE LEON. En Vivo en Copacabana. The most charismatic salsa singer and performer only can be judged by the high standards of his shows and this is the first album that ever captured that. Live in the world famous Copacabana club (New York) with his full venezuelan band.

3.AMIGOS INVISIBLES. Venezuela Singazón Vol 1. Produced by "Little" Louie Vega, it was the album that gave Los Amigos a global sound and put them on the road to international recognition.

4.GRUPO MANGO. Puro Mango. A salsa band from the late 70s and early 80s, it was considered the creme of the creme at his peak. Tiis is a best of and the only material that can be found on CD.

5.SAXOMANIA. Marejada Feliz: A tribute to Roberto Roena by a big salsa/jazz band. A fantastic achievement. This album should be in any true salsero’s collection

6.DESORDEN PUBLICO. Canto Popular de la Vida y Muerte. Put simply...Ska Cubano with cojones. a 20-year-old ska/rock band that sounds better today than ever. This was their 4th album and their best in my opinion.

7.SENTIMIENTO MURETO. Sin Sombra No Hay Luz. Pure tropical punk!! Sentimiento Muerto was the most popular rock band in Venezuela. This album made them the stars they became.

8.VAGOS Y MALEANTES Papidandeando. Caracas Hiphop at its best. Their first and best album to date.

9.UN SOLO PUEBLO. Venezuela Un solo Pueblo Exitos.The most popular afro-venezuelan group in venezuela. This album is a "best of".

10.YORDANO. Hits. A great urban troubadour, Yordano was one of the bext exponents of the caracas music scene in the 80s and 90s. This is the best of him
