Massive grooves from one of our favorite slices of Brazilian music – the landmark work recorded by the EMI/
Odeon label at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s! Some of the Odeon groove's been made famous in recent years by the excellent Blue Brazil series – and this set follows in a similar mode – taking strands of post-bossa culture and weaving it into a tremendous set of tracks that span the gamut through jazz, funk, soul, bossa, and baroque vocal pop! The package features 20 tracks in all, and is a wonderful introduction to the larger series of reissues mounted by EMI in Brazil in recent years – which means that if you like the tracks on this set, you can hurry up and track down the full albums while they're still on the market! Titles include "Rua Maluca" by Eduardo Araujo, "Me Libertei" by Toni Tornado, "A Ra" by Joao Donato, "Na Baixo De Sapateiro" by Wilson Simonal, "Jungle" by Som Tres, "Vou Pular Neste Carnaval" by Eliana Pittman
, "Madalena" by Tania Maria, "Brazzaville" by Wilson Das Neves, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy, and "Mentira" by Marcos Valle.
