One of the greatest collections of Brazilian music we've stocked in years – and one that goes for a very different focus than other funk or bossa-styled sets! The sound here is really unique – a mix of samba, soul, and MPB styles – all wrapped up in the sunny finish promised in the title, with a gentle groove and a really sweet sound overall! Much of the work on the collection is from the 70s, but there's also some excellent tracks from later years – tunes inspired by American soul styles of the time, and which provide a great precursor to some of the excellent soul that's currently coming out of the Brazilian scene! It's rare that our ears get surprised this much – and this pleasantly – and we're really digging the lost styles that run through this excellent collection! 2CD set features 38 tracks in all – including "Marilia" by Moraes Moreira, "Tempos Atras" by Azymuth, "Palco" by Gilberto Gil, "Azul" by Gal Costa, "Mulher De 15 Metros" by Fabio Fonseca
