✨✧ VariousPierre Fournier Edition – Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon, Decca, & Philips (25 CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy 25CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the first important cellists on the Deutsche Grammophon label – presented here in a beautiful box that features his complete works for that company, plus other material for Decca and Philips as well! Fournier's phrasing brought a new sort of subtlety to the cello in performance – which DG was able to record extremely well, and allow Pierre the space to deepen our understanding of these works on vinyl. The box presents all albums with original album art – and includes both larger orchestral works and sonatas – the latter of which are Fournier's especially strong suit. Features two complete versions of Beethoven's works for cello and piano – one with Friedrich Gulda, the other with Wilhem Kempff – plus material by Lalo, Saint Saens, Haydn, Vivaldi, Bach, Brahms, Dvorak, and Strauss. 25 CDs in a beautiful package – with great notes too!

Arnaldo BaptistaArnaldo Baptista Box (Loki/Elo Perdido/Faremos Uma Noitada Excelente/Singin Alone/Let It Bed) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. Used 5CD ... $39.99
A special box set of work from this key member of Os Mutantes – one that looks at all the many facets of his compelling solo career! The first album in the set is the landmark Loki – an incredibly crazy and messed-up album of tracks cut by Arnaldo Baptista after the breakup of Os Mutantes. Baptista wrote all of the songs, except for one, which lists "Os Mutantes" in the credits – and the tracks feature his booze-drenched vocals right up front, with backing by piano, and some very theatrical arrangements that are quite different than the work of his earlier Tropicalia group. The record is tough to describe – sort of a mix of early 70s Euro singer/songwriter trends, particularly those of the Saravah scene – with maybe a bit of post-psyche rock, with piano as the most dominant instrument in the mix. There's a surprisingly personal feel to the whole thing – and titles include "Uma Pessoa So", "Nao Estou Nem Ai", "Desculpe", "E Facil", and "Navegar De Novo". The package also features Singin Alone, from 1982 – a very spare, very boozy solo LP by this ex-Mutantes member. Most of the tracks have him sitting at the piano, singing along in very raspy vocals, with most of the lyrics in English. The record is very different from the Mutantes records, but is an excellent bit of work in the rock singer-songwriter tradtion (which might here include Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits, as comparable examples.) We don't really know what Baptista's up to at this point, but the record is a haunting solo work, with many great tracks like "Jesus, Come Back To Earth", "I Fell In Love One Day", and "O Sol". Next is Elo Perdido – a collaboration with Patrulha Do Espacao - followed by Let It Bed, a more recent album that shows that Baptista had developed into a surprisingly sensitive songwriter. But maybe most amazing is Faremos Uma Noita Da Excelente – a live set from 1978 that also features work from Patrulha Do Espacao – and which wasn't issued at the time! CD
(Includes original digipacks with booklets and slipcase – all in good shape!)

✨✧ Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

✨✧ Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

Philips (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $8.99
A pretty nice little collection of Maria's work for Philips – mostly from the mid 70s, when she was working in that wonderful baroque mode of hers, extra-dramatic, with lots of wonderful arrangements that propelled songs by Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, and others into a whole new territory! Titles include "Ronda", "Gema", "Calice", "Cheiro De Amor", "Amor Amor", "Sonho Meu", and "Brincar De Viver". CD

Claude BollingVivre La Nuit ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1968. Used ... $13.99
Some of the grooviest work we've ever heard from Claude Bolling – a wicked 60s score for a film that featured Serge Gainsbourg on screen, and a host of mod singers on the soundtrack! Bolling brings in a great range of jazzy modes – hardly the trad or classical-styled sounds you'd know from his bigger albums, and more the sort of soul jazz he recorded only briefly in the 60s. About half the tracks are instrumentals by Claude – with bits of Hammond and guitar heard to best effect on the funky "Blue Beat". But the vocal cuts are equally great – still penned by Bolling, often with lyrical help from Nicole Croisille – sung by vocalists who include Jose Bartel, Gerry Beckles, The Girls, and Danielle Licari. Titles include "Voici Le Jour", "Heart & Soul", "Once More", "Good Cook", "Blue Strip", "Vivre La Nuit", "Get That Feelin", and "Purple Night". CD

Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".
