Maria BethaniaAlibi ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1978. Used ... $4.99
Strong work by Maria Bethania from the late 70s – a session that has her tightening up her sound a bit more than before, but without any loss of her sense of drama or emotion! The album was recorded with a number of different musical backgrounds, including many small group settings with guitar by Rosinha De Valenca – an artist we love on her own, and who adds in a nicely personal touch to this album's mix of strings, keyboards, and rootsier percussion. The guitar works nicely with Maria's voice, and is perhaps second in the mix behind her singing – giving the songs a nice focus even when the backings are quite large. Songs are a mix of tunes by Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, and other likely suspects – and titles include "Calice", "Interior", "De Todas As Maneiras", "O Meu Amor", "Ronda", and "Diamante Verdadeiro".

Billy BlancoNa Voz Do Proprio ... CD
Elenco (Japan), 1964. Used ... $18.99
A pretty unique album from the bossa era – the only one we've ever seen by singer Billy Blanco, and a set of all-original tunes arranged and conducted by Oscar Castro Neves. Billy's got a voice that's a bit odd – slightly flat, but in a way that also makes for a nice change of pace in this bossa setting. The quality's a bit rawer and more honest than some of the sweeter, more romantic male singers – and the style makes for a very unique record, packaged in the usual charming Elenco cover! Titles include "Tio Alfredo", "Mochino Bonito", "Rio Do Meu Amor", "Secretaria", "Estrada Do Nada", and "Praca Maua". CD
