pretty great sounds from the legendary antonio carlos jobim – an album cut a bit later than his bossa years. but with a darkly sophisticated sound that’s pretty darn compelling! the album features larger orchestrations by claus ogerman. and in a way. it’s similar to the jobim album on decca from 1973 (aka maita pere) – in that it’s got all the simple elements of jobim’s earlier bossa scoring. flushed out into moodier orchestral forms that we’d rank right up there with the modernist work of gil evans or duke ellington. a few cuts have a breezier sparer sound. and you’ll hear english versions of some older bossa tunes. titles include -dreamer-. -canta mais-. -olha maria-. -wave-. -two kites-. -this happy madness-. -song of the sabia-. -estrada do sol-. -voce vai ver-. -off key-. and -triste-.
MUTANTES E SEUS COMETAS NO PAIS DO BAURETS (180G LP)
12" Vinyl lp NL08.12.17
180 gram brazilian polysom re-issue of the polydor original.
one of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by os mutantes – a record that’s got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! rita lee and arnaldo baptista are still in the group at this point. and they’re working amidst a heavy wave of guitars that echo out with a bit of keyboards and some rhythms that are chunky enough to almost be called funky at times. but sweet and dreamy at others – all produced with a flanged-out finish that makes the whole thing sound great!
180 gram brazilian polysom re-issue of the polydor original.
an essential collection of rare material from this legendary brazilian group – and a set that shows the importance they had in the tropicalia movement beyond their own famous albums! the package brings together key collaborations between os mutanes and other key figures in music at the time – including some from rare singles. or other albums that maybe haven’t shown up on your radar if you’ve only been tracking the group by records issued under their own name. as a whole. the set’s a much-needed addition to their too-small catalog from these essential years – and titles include work with caetano veloso on -saudosismo-. -marcianita-. -a voz do morto-. and -baby- – plus -lady madonna- and -cinderella rockafella- done with clelia simone and kier – both live and 7” single versions of -ando meio desligado-. work with gilberto gil on -domingo no parque-. work with rogerio duprat on -cancao para ingles ver chiquita bacana- and -the rain the park & other things- – and the track -mande um abraco pra velha-. from a rare brazilian 60s compilation.
an incredible album from lo borges one of the best singer/songwriters on the brazilian scene of the 70s! borges first burst into the spotlight for his work on the club da esquina album by milton nascimento and his work as part of miltons corner club really helped shape the style of the more famous singer. yet borges is almost an equally great talent on his own with a soaring. soulful approach that’s every bit as great as the best nascimento material from the period and recorded in a wonderfully similar spirit! the sound here is completely sublime right from the start music that moves us. even if we can t understand the language of the lyrics like some of the best work by caetano veloso and gilberto gil. there’s maybe a bit more guitar than on some of the milton nascimento work of the period but used in a fuzzy way that slides in nicely with some of the jazzy phrasing of the instrumentation which is delivered with help from key contemporaries who include beto guedes. nelson angelo. toninho horta. and tenorio jr. the songwriting is amazing and titles include cancao postal. voce fica melhor assim. nao foi nada. calibre. faca seu jogo. toda essa agua.pensa voce. como o machando. and aos baroes.
an incredible album from brazilian rock legend raul seixas – easily one of the most important artists to emerge after the tropicalia generation – and a singer with a sound that’s as striking as his image on the cover! the album’s got an explosive blend of styles – everything from psychedelic samba to country rock to easy rock tunes – all bound together by the strong sense of presence that helped seixas elevate to become one of brazili’s most controversial rock stars of the time. all with the kind of legacy you might expect from the cover image! the sound is great – very different than what american and anglo groups were doing at the time. although with sly nods to their modes from time to time – and titles include the english track -how could i know-. plus -as minas do rei salomao-. -mosca na sopa-. -cachorro-. -al capone-. and the strange electronic -introducao-.
ultra-rare gems extracted from 45s and 78s records released in the 1950s and early 1960s by obscure record labels! a collection of fast. hot and intense latin songs played by cuban. puerto rican. venezuelan. mexican and north american wild dance orchestras. recorded in the 1950s / 1960s and originally released on vinyl and 78rpm shellac records. savage bongos. volcanic trumpets. atomic rumbas. mambo inferno and wild conga for a successful party of exotic ecstasy!
brilliant 70s material by antonio carlos jobim – one of his key sets from the middle part of the decade that had the composer really deepening his approach to both singing and songwriting – moving past some of the more instrumental modes that he was using at the start of the decade! there’s a richness to the songs that goes way past simple bossa styles – and the lyrical brilliance shows that jobim hardly ever needed a poet or co-writer to help him hit the heights – as he really wins us over with his words as much as his music. claus ogerman produced. and gives things the right balance between fullness and space in the charts – which allows both a great focus on antonio’s vocal style – expressive. but very down to earth – and a few nice solos on fender rhodes too! titles include -saudade do brasil-. -correnteza-. -boto-. -ligia-. -valse-. -arquitetura de morar-. and -o homem-.
polysom brazil 180 gram vinyl lp repress import. released in 1969.
heady heady work from the legendary gal costa – caught here right at her early best. smack dab in the middle of the tropicalia years! the album’s one of gal’s legendary collaborations with arranger rogerio duprat – and it’s very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from 1969. but also features some even heavier and more tripped out guitar – in a way that really pushes the psychedelic aspect of the work! the sound here is really amazing – very fuzzy and freaky at times. in ways that make the album one of the most rocking sets of the entire tropicalia scene. but in ways that still hang onto the quirky experimental qualities of work by os mutantes or caetano veloso. gal’s vocals really rip out amazingly at times – light years away from the sweet sound of the late 70s. and more in the frenetic. urgent style you’d expect from the politically-charged scene that spawned the set. caetano veloso and gilberto gil join gal on a great version of -pais tropical-. jards macale guest stars on the classic -empty boat- – and other tracks include -tuareg-. -meu nome e gal-. -pulsars e quasars-. and -cultura e civilizaco-. essential!
a wild solo project from rita lee – done after the breakup of os mutantes. and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! there’s a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that’s echoed by the band’s space-style costumes and makeup – but there’s also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too. almost like the way that an artist like gary glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music. and come across making something very weird and new. here. the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and rita herself plays moog. melotron. organ. and piano – on titles that include -tem uma cidade-. -menino bonito-. -mame natureza-. and -eclipse do cometa-.
one of the funkiest albums ever from gilberto gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that’s not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from jorge ben! the record borrows heavily from american funk and soul of the time. and takes gil’s tight songwriting and infuses it with an even catchier edge than ever before – really creating a fantastic groove that seems to illuminate gilberto’s lyrics even more than before – with a sense of personality and joy that really comes through. even beyond the barriers of language! the whole thing s wonderful – tight. but never overproduced – and very individual. despite an influence from american soul music. titles include -rafavela-. -aqui e agora-. -ile aye-. -baba alapala-. -era nova-. -samba do aviao-. and -balafon-.
HOJE E O PRIMEIRO DIA DO RESTO DA SUA VIDA (180G LP)
12" Vinyl lp NL07.12.17
a tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-mutante rita lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time. but in a mode that’s quite different overall! lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of arnaldo baptista and guitar of sergio dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the mutantes styles in the years after lee departed. one of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction os mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that lee always provided when in the group. titles include -vamos tratar da saude-. -amor branco e preto-. -superficie do planeta-. -teimoisia-. -tapupukitipa-. -beija me amor-. and -frique como-.
a landmark album from late 60s brazil! this is the first – and the wildest – album by this legendary group that was one of the founding forces of the tropicalia movement – a brilliant musical statement that easily ranks with some of the most groundbreaking late 60s american work by the velvet underground. captain beefheart. or the stooges! the music is a wonderful blend of 60s rock and early mpb – hard-driving with plenty of guitars. but also produced with beautifully baroque touches that echo through simultaneous albums by caetano veloso and gal costa – both of whose 1969 albums are strongly resonant with this one. in fact. caetano contributed a number of tracks to the album. including -panis et circenses-. -bat macumba-. -trem fantastma-. and his great -baby-. which is done fantastically here. great stuff all ’round!
180g brazilian polysom re-issue of the polydor original.
the second set of madness from the legendary os mutantes – and like the first. an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer rogerio duprat. whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! the album’s got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that’s partly postmodern. partly psychedelic. and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can’t understand most of the lyrics! styles are just about impossible to pin down. but that’s what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the tropicalia years. this one may well be it! a few tracks are written by tom ze. and titles include -dom quixote-. -dia 36-. -magica-. -rita lee-. -algo mais-. -qualquer bobagem-. and -fuga no ii-.
180 gram brazilian polysom re-issue of the polydor original.
the third album from the legendary os mutantes – part of the essential trio of sides released during the tropicalia years! the record’s got a sound that’s tighter and a bit more straightforward than their previous efforts – stricter song formats. and styles that lean heavily on rockish guitars and organ. but as the odd cover images on the front and back will attest. the band is still in a very creatively arty mode here – still working strongly with arranger rogerio duprat. in a wash of sounds and moods that fold contemporary music back upon itself with plenty of odd twists. turns. and surprises! titles include -desculpe babe-. -oh mulher infiel-. -quem tem medo de brincar de amor-. -hey boy-. -haleluia-. -ave. lucifer-. and -meu refrigerador nao funciona-.
180 gram brazilian polysom re-issue of the polydor original.
quite possibly the last truly sublime album ever recorded by os mutantes – a set that’s a bit more rock-oriented then their first few. but still pretty revolutionary overall! the group have expanded to a quintet at this point. but haven’t yet falling into the guitar-heavy groove of later years – and rogerio duprat is working with the group on arrangements. although mutantes member arnaldo baptista is handling production chores himself. odd styles still slide into the mix as the tunes roll on – creating that great sense of surprise that makes their best work so great. and keeping things fresh even when a bit more straight ahead! titles include a reprise of -baby-. one of the group’s early classics – plus -portugal de navio-. -virginia-. -tecnicolor-. -el justicero-. -lady. lady-. -sarava-. -it’s very nice pra xuxu-. and -top top-.

remastered reissue on 180 gram vinyl.
a great 70s album by os novos baianos – a wonderfully youthful group that was one of the bright spots in brazilian music after the tropicalia years. the band had a style that mixed folksy percussion with honest personal songwriting. plus occasional touches of elements gleaned from the larger influences in brazilian rock at the time. the album has a sound that’s a lot more intimate than later work. with some especially great work on guitar and bandolim. and great production on the band’s vocals.
remastered reissue on 180 gram vinyl.
rootsy samba and hipper 70s mpb influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! back in these early years. novos baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70’s brazilian music – a sense of earnest. open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the brazilian underground of the early 70s! the style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group’s other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar. but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation. as well as some folkloric flute!
