Brigitte BardotBest Of Brigitte Bardot ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), 1960s. Used ... $5.99
A great collection of groovy French pop! Although BB's best known in this end of the world for her acting, she actually cut quite a few great records in France during the 60s – and this set includes 20 of them! Some of the work is recorded with Serge Gainsbourg, or with his assistance – like "Harley Davidson", "Bonnie & Clyde", and "Je T'Aime . . . Moi Non Plus" – but the whole thing's a great batch of groovy and sexy tracks, most of them with excellent production in the French style that's become quite popular with the kids these days. Titles include "Moi Je Joue", "Ciel De Lit", "Le Soleil", "Oh! Qu'il Est Villain", and "Contact". Great sexy package, too! CD

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 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 ... $11.99
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".

Chico BuarqueAlmanaque (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple genre distinctions – that true blend of modes that Buarque virtually introduced in the early years of MPB, and which he could still pull off better than anyone else. The album's wonderfully free of gimmicks, and has a depth that really rewards repeated listenings – and backings are by a host of top-shelf musicians who include Toquinho, Toninho Horta, Cristovao Bastos, Mauro Senise, Robertinho Silva, Djalma Correa, and Marcio Montarroyos. Arrangements are mostly by Francis Hime, who also plays on the record – but Dori Caymmi and Edu Lobo also contribute arrangements too. Titles include "As Vitrines", "Almanaque", "Tanto Amar", "Angelica", "Moto Continuo", "Ela e Dancarina", and "O Meu Guri". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1978) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Used ... $11.99
One of Chico's strongest albums of the late 70s – a masterful set of sophisticated tunes, recorded with some great guest help from Milton Nascimento, Zizi Possi, and Elba Ramalho! The album's got a slightly melancholy feel overall – not completely somber, but a slightly world-weary sound that makes the album a bit different and more mature than some of Chico's earlier work – and which beautifully unlocks a new chapter in his tremendous talents. The style is great – perfect for Buarque's growing international fame at the time, but not in a way that's ever too commercial. Titles include "Calice", "Feijoada Completa", "Tanto Mar", "Apesar De Voce", "Pequena Serenata Diurna", and "Ate O Fim". CD

Philips (Brazil), 1984. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly solid quality overall – and a mature, sophisticated approach to songwriting that easily matches some of Caetano Veloso's best work of the same time. Titles include "Pleas Tabelas", "Samba Do Grande Amor", "Mil Perdoes", "Vai Passar", "As Cartas", and "Suburbano Coracao". CD

Chico BuarqueSinal Fechado (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho Albuquerque, in a warm mode that sometimes has fuller flute, guitar, and percussion – but which also drops out at times to give the record a much more intimate approach. Tunes are written by Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Noel Rosa, Nelson Cavaquinho, Vinicius De Moraes, and Sebastiao Nunes – and titles include "Festa Imodesta", "Filosofia", "Cuidado Com A Outra", "Lagrima", "Voce Nao Sabe Amar", "Ligia", and "Sem Compromisso". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese!

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".

Gal CostaIndia ... CD
Philips/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz". The whole thing's incredibly beautiful – and it's got Gal in a wild bikini cover, too! CD

Fantastic! This classic bit of funky electronic French stuff has been showing up in bits and pieces on various compilations over the past few years (most notably the cut "Psyche Rock", which has some sample history to it), but this is the full release of this amazing collaboration between electronic music pioneer Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier – a soundtrack for a full length ballet of groovy electronic pieces that sounds as fresh today as it did back in the late 60s! It's great all the way through, and many tracks have the same feel as the famous "Psyche Rock" – funky, chunky, and bristling with electric energy. Other tracks have a very spare electronic sound – there's odd bubbling sounds, cool funky beats, and some very groovy melodies. CD

Jorge BenEra Uma Vez A Banda Do Ze Pretinho – 1978 to 1981 (A Banda do Ze Pretinho/Salve Simpatia/Alo Alo Como Vai/Bem Vinda Amizade) (4CD set) ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99
Four albums from the second chapter in the career of Jorge Ben – packaged here in a single set, with a few bonus tracks too! First up is A Banda Do Ze Preinho – a record that's funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds onto the best energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". Salve Simpatia is late 70s funky soul from Jorge Ben – a record that tightens up the sound a bit from his earlier years on Philips – but still keeps in all the core elements we love so much! The tracks bounce along with a tight samba soul approach that's built very much on Jorge's earlier experiments – handled with a bit more modern soul on the arrangements, but in a way that only makes the grooves come across more directly – in a style that's akin to some other Brazilian artists who were shifting more soul towards soul from other styles at the time – such as Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries. Titles include "Salve Simpatia", "Ive Brussel", "Waldomiro Pena", "Adelita", "Occulatus Abis", and "Menina Crioula". Alo Alo Como Vai has Jorge working in a smoother vein than on his Philips sides, with the same sort of modern soul approach that Marcos Valle and other older Brazilian singers were using at the time. But since Jorge's always been a soulster from the start, the style works perfectly for his warm vocals and his keen talent for putting over a groove. Arrangements have kind of a brassy funky samba groove – and titles include "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae", "Solitario Surfista", "Olha A Pipa", "Cae Cae Caetano", "Alo Alo, Como Vai?", and "A Cegohna Me Deixou Em Mardureira". Bem Vinda Amizade is an 80s groover with a sound that's a bit of a change from his 70s classics! The backings show Ben picking up some modern soul elements from the US scene of the time – but these are also mixed with some rougher, rhythmic styles that are definitely Brazilian – which makes for a really compelling blend – quite similar to the samba and soul mix of Jorge's 70s records, but tuned towards the ears of a different generation overall. Bits of boogie mix in to the groove nicely – and titles include "Katarina Katarina", "Para Que Digladiar", "Santa Clara Clareou", "O Diam Em Que O Sol Declarou O Seu Amor Pela Terra", "Lorraine", and "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro". CD set features 3 bonus tracks – "Natal Brasileiro", "Waimea 55,000", and "Saci Perere". CD

Antonio Carlos JobimMusic Of Antonio Carlos Jobim – Beach & Forest ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99
A beautiful collection of the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and one that features some songs recorded by the maestro himself, and other recordings of his compositions handled by key Brazilian contemporaries! The title's a reference to the way the set's divided up – in that CD 1 is "beach", with some slightly breezier tunes – and CD2 is "forest", with some deeper strands of Jobim's work, especially moving into the 70s. The package features 30 tracks in all, and a good number of harder-to-find tracks from Brazilian Philips recordings, as well as Verve classics – with titles that include "A Felicidade" by Sylvia Telles, "So Danco Samba" by Wanda De Sah, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Os Cariocas, "O Amor Em Paz" by Toninho Horta, "Piano Na Mangueira" by Quarteto Em Cy & MPB4, "Olha Maria" by Chico Buarque, "Vivo Sonhando" by Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto, "Correnteza" by Boca Livre, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, and "Aguas De Marco" by Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim – plus "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Passarim", "Luiza", "Chega De Saudade", "Triste", and "Wave" by Jobim himself.

Jack JonesAll The Things You Are – The Love Collection ... CD
Universal (UK), Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... $1.99
Sublime vocals from one of our favorite male vocalists of the 60s – the deep voiced Jack Jones, one of the best at putting over a ballad or a love song at the time! Jack's got a style that's smooth and sophisticated – but never soppy or slick – kind of a mature, grown-up poise that really transforms any of the material he sings, as you'll hear on this well-selected batch of work from Jones' key years at Kapp Records. Jones' work from the time was a strong influence on the work of Scott Walker – and there's a really direct line between these tunes and some of the material that Walker did during his Philips years. (Ever wonder about Walker's influences? Try going past the obvious Jacques Brel to look at Icemen like Jerry Butler and Jack Jones! This 2CD collection is a wonderful introduction to some of Jack Jones' greatest recordings – and despite the "love collection" title, it's far better than you'd think! 34 tracks in all – with titles that include "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "True Love", "And I Love Her", "Charade", "If You Go Away", "Hit The Road To Dreamland", "Rosalie", "Somewhere Along The Way", "You're Sensational", "You're My Girl", "Dear Heart", "Close Your Eyes", "Summertime Promises", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Love With The Proper Stranger".

A classic double-length collection of work by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – originally titled a "Foursider" because of the 2LP format of the original! The package is overflowing with greatness by the group – and the extra space allows the set to include some real gems from the later A&M years – a time when the group were hitting the charts a bit less than before, and really deepening their Brazilian groove! These later tracks are all plenty darn great – and show echoes of changes going on in late 60s Brazilian music – not Tropicalia entirely, but some of the groovier moments at EMI/Odeon and Philips, with traces of influences from Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, and Luiz Carlos Vinhas. 21 tracks in all – with titles that include "Ye Me Le", "After Sunrise", "Pais Tropical", "Crystal Illusions", "Mas Que Nada", "Bim Bom", "Look Of Love", "Chelsea Morning", "After Midnight", and their breakbeat version of "For What It's Worth".

Sandra Phillips/Bette WilliamsSwamp Dogg's Southern Soul Girls ... CD
Canyon/Kent (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Forget the Swamp Dogg reference in the title – because the work here is totally different than his usual bag – and very much in the best female southern soul mode of the time! The first half of the CD features the rare Canyon album Too Many People In One Bed by Sandra Philips – a heck of a great singer, and even though she only got a chance to cut this one album, it's more than enough to make her tops in our book! Jerry (Swamp Dogg) Williams produced, and the set's got a sweet southern style that puts it right up there with the best work of Ann Sexton, Tommie Young, or other obscure southern females from the same generation – a great mix of heartbreaking soul and more righteous modes – definitely enough to show that despite her deep feelings, Sandra's no pushover! Williams wrote most of the songs as well – but they're quite different from his usual fare, quite sensitive stuff without any of the Swamp Dogg jokes or political moments you might expect. Titles include "After All I Am Your Wife", "Please Don't Send Him Back To Me", "Some Mother's Son", "My Man & Me", "Rescue Song", and "To The Other Woman (I'm The Other Woman)". The second half of the CD features some equally great work by Bette Williams – another singer who worked with Swamp Dogg during the same time, but with a style that was almost funkier overall! Most of the Williams material here was issued on singles for the Gregar label, but the set also features some unissued tracks too, plus 2 numbers from the Swamp Dogg Presents label. Titles include "Got To Travel On", "He Took My Hand", "Now That I'm Gone", "If She's Your Wife", "Can't Win For Losing", "A Feeling", and "Another Man Took My Husband's Place". CD also features the bonus track "Robin Right On". CD

Really great late work from Elis Regina – recorded in the company of arranger Cesar Mariano, whose masterful touch made for some of Elis' best albums of the 70s! Cesar arranged and conducted here, and although the production is perhaps a bit more contemporary than Elis' work for Philips, the vocals are sublime – much more driving and jazzy than a few years before, really working hard to dig deep and get the best sound out of each of the tunes! Titles include "Cai Dentro", "Basta De Clamares Inocencia", "Eu Hein Rosa", "As Paraencias Engagem", and a nice version of Joyce's "Essa Mulher". CD

Only Nina could make us love a "strings" setting so much – moving past the sleepiness that usually graces such vocal albums, and using the backings to give her work an added level of majesty and power that we really really love! The feel is a bit like some of Nina's later Philips recordings – in that the larger arrangements are used to hint at larger moods and concepts that lurk behind familiar and folksy tracks. The approach is most famously heard on the album's incredible reading of "I Loves You Porgy" – but all titles are great, and other tunes include "Pigs Foot & A Bottle Of Beer", "Chain Gang", "The Man With The Horn", and "Falling In Love".

Nina's folsky, but she's also jazzy too – and the album's from a key time in which she was finding a very special way to bring the two modes together! Simone could have been a straight jazz singer if she wanted – but as records like this always remind us, she was always striving for something different – a bolder, more righteous way of expressing herself – opening up with a new sort of power that was perfect for the coming change in the 60s! The album's a live one – a setting that always seems to have Nina hitting her stride – and even the familiar tunes take on new energy in the context – a sense of pride and spirituality that's already as great as her work to come for Philips Records. Titles include "Erets Zavat Chalav", "Silver City Sound", "The Young Knight", "The Twelfth Of Never", "Vanetihu", "Lass Of The Low Country", and "When I Was A Young Girl". CD

An unusual album from 70s Brazil – one that's got a slightly different vibe than some of the other funky samba records of the period – both in the approach of the singer, and the overall groove! There's definitely a samba core to the set – especially in the way a female backing group echoes the lead lyrics from Chocolate – but the arrangements are often quite diverse, and really move through a range of different rhythmic patterns – sometimes straight samba, sometimes with almost jazzy changes – which creates all these instrumental colors that match the unusual phrasing of Chocolate Do Bahia. The style is almost a bit like some of the Philips 70s work of Emilio Santiago – but still very unique overall – and titles include "Ele Guenta", "Me Da Birinaite", "Meu Passarinho", "Sereia Sereia", "Roda De Samba", "Nao Deixa Nao", and "La Vem O Homem".

The collection's more on an Ace Records level than most we've seen from the Real Gone label – and certainly is a wonderful antidote to all the shoddy, cheapo collections of material like this on the market – a great testament to how great things can sound when the right sort of folks are put in charge of the project!

The recordings are great – done for radio, and re-presented here with fidelity that's every bit as rich as Brel's live recordings on Philips – which, like these tracks, really show the sense of animation and expression that Jacques brought to his presentation of his lyrics – the sense of wit and intelligence that always made Brel the best (and possibly only) true interpreter of his songs! The tunes are the stuff of legend – biting commentary on love, live, and postwar French society – with backings from the larger Olympia Orchestra on most tracks, plus accordion by Jean Corti, and piano by Francois Rauber. Titles include "Bruxelles", "La Statue", "Rosa", "La Valse A Mille Temps", "Seul", "La Dame Patronnesse", "Les Singes", "Les Paumes Du Petit Matin", "L'Ivrogne", and "Quand On A Que L'Amour". CD

✨✧ Gilberto GilE-Collection – Sucessos & Raridades ... CD
Warner (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pretty cool collection of work by Gilberto Gil – featuring one disc of hits, and another of rarities! The hits – or "sucessos" – are from his years at Warner and Som Livre, when Gil was working in a mode that was slicker and funkier than his 70s stuff for Philips, but still pretty nice overall. The "raridades" are even better, though – and include tracks that were b-sides to singles, from films, from collections of samba, or tributes to other artists. The 2CD set has 27 tracks in all – and titles include "Gaivota", "Senhor Delegado", "Macapa", "Gimme Your Love", "Pra Fazer O Sol Nascer", "Saudade Da Bahia", "Mico Preto", "Luar", "Esoterico", "Estrela", "Guerra Santa", and "Um Trem Para As Estrelas".
