Antonio Carlos & JocafiMudei De Ideia ... CD
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one of the most important forces of the Samba Soul generation! There's lots here to love if you like the heavy grooves of Jorge Ben or Tim Maia – but the duo also have a really great approach of their own – especially in the way they'll trade voices back and forth, over grooves that also have plenty of back/forth action too! The record includes the amazing heavy piano/percussion jammer "Hipnose", plus the great cuts "Voce Abusou", "Kabaluere", "Se Quiser Valer", "Deus O Salve", "Nord West", and "Dalena". CD
Also available Mudei De Ideia ... LP 23.99

✨✧ Lo BorgesRio Da Lua ... CD
Deck Disk (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Lo Borges – the legendary Brazilian singer that we've loved since his first "corner club" work with Milton Nascimento in the 70s – and who looks as if he hasn't aged a bit in the photo included with the album! Borges was always one of the strongest Brazilian songwriters of his generation – and a sophisticated, subtle singer whose approach was always just right for his words – an approach that hasn't changed a bit, as Lo works here with older musical partner Nelson Angelo, whose help was so important on his first self-titled album from 1972! Backing is by a small group, nicely under-produced – and all songs are originals by Borges and Angelo, with titles that include "Rio Da Lua", "Profeta, "No Caminho", "Em Outras Cancoes", "Foto 3 x 4", "Antes Do Tempo", and "Partimos".

✨✧ Gilberto GilOk Ok Ok (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great record from Gilberto Gil – a Brazilian legend who maybe strayed from his genius a bit in later years, but who's really been back on track of late! Gilberto's wonderful here – very up-close and personal, but also sharply witty too – returning to that energy that made his 70s material so important, with both a sense of the man and his larger ideas coming through in a really great way! There's some acoustic elements in the music at times, a few jazzy touches, and none of those sometimes-obtuse modes that Gilberto might have used 20 years back – just a clean, clear focus on the ever-flowing talents that make a record like this every bit as great as late life material from Caetano Veloso. Titles include "Uma Coisa Bonitinha", "Sereno", "Na Real", "Ok Ok Ok", "Yamandu", "Tartarugue", and "Sol De Maria". CD features bonus tracks "Pela Internet 2", "Kalil", and "Afogamento". CD

Grupo BatuqueOle Ola – Futebol Bonito! – The Brazilian Soundtrack To The Beautiful Game ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2006. New Copy ... $5.99
A Brazilian tribute to football – but one that's given a distinctly London twist – as core rhythms by Wilson Das Neves, Dom Um Romao, and others are mixed up and augmented by Da Lata, Zero dB, Roc Hunter, Fauna Flash, and Osunlade! The album's got a depth and compelling quality that goes far beyond other records by Grupo Batuque – as tightly-played percussion riffs are mixed with sound effects, crowd noise, and commentary from football games – all in a rich sonic tapestry that goes past simple samba or batucada! The whole thing's almost like an audio document to the greatness of the sport and its importance in Brazilian culture – but thanks to the globe-spanning efforts of Far Out, the added production help should help settle more than a few disputes at the World Cup! Titles include "Torcida Do Flamengo", "E Ruim (Zero dB rmx)", "Ole Ola", "Isto E Samb", "Na Cancao Do Samba", "Ole Ola (Fauna Flash rmx)", "Na Batida Do Agogo (Osunlade rmx)", and "Berimbal Capoeira (Da Lata rmx)".

Francis HimePassaredo ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. Used ... $14.99
A real 70s classic from singer/songwriter Francis Hime – a record we'd rank right up there with the best work by contemporaries like Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges! As with both of those singers, the style here is often complicated at the base, but nicely compressed in its presentation – a fusing together of strands of jazz, MPB, and larger orchestrations – all served up with a sophistication and maturity that's often way ahead of work coming out of the American mainstream at the time! Hime wrote, arranged, and directed the album himself – but he gets vocal help from Chico Buarque and Olivia Hime – and his great group here features Danilo Caymmi on flute, Wilson Das Neves on drums, and Neco on acoustic guitar. Titles include "Carta", "Pouco Me Importa", "Luisa", "Ave Maria", "Maravilha", "Meu Homem", and "Trocando Em Miudos". CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 Brazilian artists, her best work is usually incredibly elusive – often obscured by some of her more traditional, or more bossa-oriented records. This one features the lady at her most experimental – singing in this dark mode with great arrangements from Rogerio Duprat – the backstage architect of so many other important Tropicalia albums of the time. The arrangements are wonderful – with a spooky baroque quality that will haunt you long after the Mutantes crazy guitars have died down – the more subtle side of the Brazilian palette during this revolutionary period, and work that arguably had a much longer-lasting effect. Titles include "Mulher", "Infelizmente", "Tema De Os Inconfidentes", "Anoiteceus", and "Quem E". CD

✨✧ Os MutantesMande Um Abraco Pra Velha (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Universal/Polysom (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $32.99
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.

✨✧ Raul SeixasKrig-Ha Bandolo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Marcos ValleBraziliance! ... CD
Warner/Mr Bongo (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most important early albums by Marcos Valle – a set of instrumental tracks recorded with lots of acoustic guitar! Even though Valle was well known as a singer and composer of bossa nova tunes, the set instead focuses on his instrumental work – recording his guitar ala Jobim or Bonfa at the time – with some larger arrangements from Deodato, who really brings a great feel to the set! The sound is tremendous – as sweeping strings soar over tight rhythms from drummer Wilson Das Neves – and Valle and Deodato set some magical moods on tunes that include "Deus Brasileiro", "Vamos Pranchar", "Tanto Andei", "Seu Encanto", "Batucada Surgiu", "Dorme Profundo", and "Os Grilos" – the first ever recording of "Crickets Sing For Anamaria"! CD
