'"COSTA RICA/COSTA RICA" LP (1980)

LO QUE ES LA VIDA!

Hace 40 años durante una gira con mi grupo "Pelín" a mi amada #costarica, recibí una invitación de parte del Ministerio de Juventud, Cultura y Deportes para presentar la música en el Teatro Nacional De Costa Rica y luego documentar nuestra música con un LP. Grabado en los estudios de #RadioNacional por Alberto Bolaños, el disco "Costa Rica, Costa Rica" salió al mercado a finales de 1980, con la participación de los miembros de mi grupo :Casey Davis Jones, jay Goldfarb, Randy Tico, Kenn Burris( R.I.P.), Elizabeth Martinez and George Friedenthal, junto a algunos grandes amigos y músicos costarricenses, entre ellos, Pepe Chacon Soto,Trio Los Diplomaticos, Joaquin Gil,Álvaro Fernández-Gonzálezy otros. Se editaron 1000 copias. Desgraciadamente el "master" se perdió durante un incendio en las oficinas de la emisora.

Pasan 40 años y luego de los 8 tracks, cassettes, CDs y demás , la gente regresa a escuchar música más y más en vinilo. Nuevos LPs salen al mercado prensados en vinilo virgen de alta calidad, y viejos LPs son ahora a menudo valioso producto para coleccionistas. Durante el último año, he recibido pedidos desde #francia, #holanda, #japon, #canada y muchos otros lugares, de gente dispuesta , y que ha pagado cientos de dólares por una copia de "Costa Rica...". Me quedan 9. El dinero que se ha generado de esas ventas ha sido invertido en "X", mi décimo CD bajo mi nombre en USA, el cual saldrá al mercado en próximo año , celebrando el 25 aniversario de la salida de #thefruitofeden, mi primer CD en USA. No tenía idea de cómo iba o financiar este proyecto. Agradecido de poder continuar produciendo música para compartir con todos ustedes, queridos amigos!<3

HAPPY & SAFE SUNDAY DEAR FRIENDS!!  I have decided to release a new song I just finished recording with my dear friend Lois Mahalia today. IT IS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW ON BANDCAMP ( https://luismunoz.bandcamp.com/track/one ). "ONE" is a musical reflection on the state of the times, the human experience and the 2020 pandemic. This track will be part of an upcoming CD entitled "Canciones de Transfiguración y Esperanza", which will feature singers Claudia Acuña, Magos Herrera, Lois Mahalia and Teka. The record won't come out until the beginning of next year, however, I though it would be appropriate to do an early release of this track, taking into consideration its message, the present state of civilization and the immediate need for confort and togetherness. I hope this song somehow helps in satisfying that need. Much Love to all!
