Fagner recorded this one in New York, and he's got a whole slew of New York based guests to prove it. Artists making appearances include Airto, Flora Purim, Tania Maria, and Nana Vasconcelos, as well as people like David Sanborn and Michael Brecker – all of whom make the record one of Fagner's strongest of the 80s. Songs include "Qualquer Musica", "Sorriso Novo", "Vapor Do Luna", "Oros II", "Tudo E Verdade", "Fumo", "Sambalatina", and "Homem Feliz". LP, Vinyl record album
A fab set of James Bond tunes – performed by Brit easy maestro Roland Shaw, in a style that's arguably groovier than the original soundtracks themselves! There's some nice instrumental touches on a few of these that push the mood of the set in a good way – and Shaw's also chosen a lot of less-familiar numbers that have a more dramatic feel to them, getting past the obvious cliches of other albums of this type. Titles include "Kingston Calypso", "Thunderball", "Death Of Goldfinger", "Miami", "Spectre Island", "Underneath The Mango Tree", "Tania Meets Klebb", and "Arrival Of The Bomb & Countdown".

Gorilla ... LP Imperial, 1967. Very Good+ ...
The insane debut of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band – an amazing late 60s Brit ensemble who were almost to music what Monty Python were to TV! This first effort by the group is a mad array of sounds and styles that come together with a great sense of play and joy – a real delight in quick turns, witty phrases, and parodic re-castings of earlier modes – inspired by dada work of the early 20th century, but also handled with a lot more of a post-modern feel overall. Most tracks are short, and many echo earlier music styles, filtered through a slightly psyche filter – and titles include "Death Cab For Cutie", "In San Francisco", "Jollity Farm", "Equestrian Statue", "Cool Brittania", "I'm Bored", "Piggy Bank Love", "Big Shot", "Mickey's Son & Daughter", and "The Sound Of Music".

We love this album! This is the best record ever by Geraldo Vandre – one of the most important voices in MPB in the pre-Tropicalia years, working here in a sublime mix of styles that foreshadows some of the best Brazilian styles of the 70s. Vandre's songs are incredibly dark – with slightly folksy overtones that recall some of Nara Leao's best work of the same time – but which often have an even more political, socially conscious nature. Backings are by Lyrio Panicali, but they're very spare – so that acoustic guitar and Vandre's voice carry most of the tracks – but also hint at some other elements that dip and turn out of the murky background. A perfect description of this one is impossible, but the sound of the record will grab you immediately – with a presence that few records from this time can match! Titles include "Cantiga Brava", "Maria Rita", "Terra Plana", "Ventania", "O Plantador", and "Joao E Maria". One we wouldn't trade for anything! LP, Vinyl record album
