Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von – an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here – strong echoes of British work of the time, but used in much more sophisticated ways than any Jovem Guarda acts – never a simple copycat approach, but also never as arty as some of the Tropicalia recordings of the time either. Ronnie's voice has a depth that allows some nice changes in mood from track to track – lightly lyrical one moment, a bit darker and more tripped-out the next – bringing a sense of variety to the record that almost recalls Caetano Veloso during the time, but a bit more rockish overall. Titles include "Atlantica", "Dindi", "De Como Meu Heroi Flash Gordon", "Foi Bom", "Rose Ann", "Comeci Uma Brincadeira", and "Mares De Areia". CD features 4 bonus tracks – earlier singles that include "Meu Bem", "Paraiso", "O Pequeno Principe", and "Meu Mundo Parou".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Nara Leao (1968)
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... CD

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums! The record's very much in a moody bossa mode, and the orchestrations are wonderful – light, but never sleepy – really done with that unique new bent that Brazilian artists were using at the time, best ... CD

Onde E Quando
Philips (Japan), 1989. New Copy
One of Nara Leao's later bossa gems – done in a real return to basics, and with some great help here from Roberto Menescal! Roberto arranged, produced, and plays guitar in the small combo backing Nara's vocals – and the sound is a strong precursor to the huge wave of bossa revival ... CD

Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on ... CD

Cantiga De Longe
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Incredible work by Edu Lobo – a watershed album that marked a whole new period of musical expression – not just for Lobo, but Brazil as well! The album picks up a post-bossa sound and moves it into the realm of baroque grooving – using complicated vocals and light guitar next to ... CD

Depois Do Carnaval
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A great early album of bossa work from the legendary Carlos Lyra – caught here at his youthful prime, and working with sublime arrangements from Luiz Eca! The record's easily one of Lyra's best from the early years – and Eca's group the Tamba Trio guest star on a few tunes – ... CD

Stunning early work by the great Marcos Valle – a dreamy bit of bossa that virtually defines the genre! The album's one of the first to feature Marcos as a singer – a showcase for his work as a "cantor" after his reputation had been building as a composer – and the ... CD

2 later gems from Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! First up is E No Entanto E Preciso Cantar – a wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit ... CD
