Cry BabiesCry Babies ... LP
CID/Far Out (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Fast funk and groovy grooves – a really great album of psychedelic tunes from Brazil! The Cry Babies serve up a sound that's beyond compare – American funk and soul influences played on organ, guitar, and sax, filtered through some really wild post-Tropicalia production! The result is a really catchy batch of grooves – almost what you'd imagine if Os Mutantes made a funk record, or if Kool & the Gang smoked a bag of weed on the beaches at Rio, then stumbled into the studios to record with Marcos Valle. Titles include "Hey Blood", "Day Dream", "It's My Thing", "Blas Blas Blas Soul", "Questions 67/68", "Caminhos Diabolicos", and "Kool & The Gang". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gilberto GilRefazenda ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums you'll ever hear from Gilberto Gil – a really cool record that's done in the same sort of samba soul style that Jorge Ben was using in the 70s – with similarly wonderful results! The rhythms are great – a really compelling mix of rootsy elements and tighter studio musicianship – often cut with guitar lines that are a perfect accompaniment to Gil's raspy, soul-drenched vocals – which sound better here than on most other albums of the period – wonderfully compelling, with an ability to grab the listener, no matter what their language! Gil also plays this wonderful "phase guitar", which jangles back and forth nicely, and gives some of the tracks an incredibly haunting sound – one that works especially nicely with the tight rhythms of the tunes! Titles include "E Povo E", "Jeca Total", "Pai E Mae", "Refazenda", "Ela", and "Lamento Sertanejo". CD

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1971) (with bonus track) ... CD
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1971. Used ... $9.99
One of the funkiest records ever from Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia – and a set that also has him singing a bit of English language lyrics too! The groove here is that classic Maia blend of Brazilian roots with American funk and soul – echoes of forro or samba in some of the rhythms, mixed with psychedelic touches, and some harder-hitting funky lines too – all in a mindblowing blend that's perfectly topped with Maia's vocals – which are every bit as large and powerful as the man on the cover himself! Tim shifts effortlessly between Portuguese lyrics and American English – the latter of which really showcases his love of American soul on the titles"I Don't Know What To Do With Myself", "Broken Heart", and "I Don't Care". The album also features a version of Marcos Valle's "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", plus the cuts "Meu Pais", "A Festa Do Santo Reis", "Nao Vou Ficar", and "Salve Nossa Senhora" – all wonderful, all the way through! CD features the bonus track "Chocolate". CD

✨✧ Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – and the grooves are often mixed together in a sound that's nice and fuzzy around the edges, with some slight psychedelic elements that makes the cuts a perfect fit for this Luaka Bop series! Yet Tim Maia's hardly a guy who can easily fit into any easy slot or series – because as you'll hear on this set, he's got a vibe that's all his own – a really wonderful approach that's different even from some of his hippest contemporaries in Brazil – and which has gone onto have influence on countless other generations of singers and musicians – including his nephew Ed Motta. The package is great – a real visual tribute to the sounds within – and titles include "Que Beleza", "Ela Partiu", "Do Leme Ao Pontal", "Brother Father Mother Sister", "Quer Queira Quer Nao Queira", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", "I Don't Care", "The Dance Is Over", "Rational Culture", "You Don't Know What I Know", and "Nobody Can Live Forever".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... CD
A&M/Soul Jazz (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even hipper than the group's early pop for A&M. The album features an excellent version of "For What It's Worth" that has a tight drumbreak which has been sampled often, as well as a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Lost in the Paradise" which is a good translation of the song to an American idiom! Other tracks include "Viramundo", "Stillness", "Chelsea Morning", and "Sometimes In Winter". A real gem – and one of the group's most overlooked albums! CD
(2014 edition packaged in a cool hardbound book – includes Soul Jazz/Universal Sound obi!)

Phil Moore & The Afro Latin SoultetAfro Brazil Oba! ... LP
Tower, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A very unique little record – and one with a sublime blend of Latin, soul, and vocal styles! The record's a fair bit more sophisticated than most other efforts like this from the 60s – thanks to a strong batch of talents that includes Gil Fuller on arrangements, Phil Moore III on piano, Leni Groves on vocals – and a host of small combo players who include Joe Pass on guitar, Hadley Caliman on tenor and flute, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion! There's a warmly soulful west coast jazz sound here that's perhaps the strongest aspect of the record – a style that steps off nicely from the hipper side of LA, but throws in a few Latin influences – making for a really great sound that's totally fresh, and which really makes this record stand out from the pack! Titles include a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin", plus "Midnight Blue", "Batucada", "I Want Your Kiss", "Lavender Lady", and "The 8th Day". (Latin, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear. Vinyl has a short click on "I Want Your Kiss".)
