Michel Magne & His OrchestraTropical Fantasy ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A beautiful lost bit of Exotica from the early 60's! Michel Magne recorded this "adventure in exotic sounds and percussion" in the Barclay Studios in Paris – as one of the excellent albums he cut in France before moving onto more famous soundtracks – and the set's got a wonderful mix of percussion, woodwinds, vibes, and piano – but also features tiny bit of tape manipulation, which gives the whole thing an even groovier sound! The feel is way cooler than the usual exotica groove – key proof of Magne's early musical vision – and titles include "Congo", "Tabu", "Sahara", "Two Silhouettes", and "Tropical".

Super Spanish Combo/Banda JardesBugiganga Tropical Vol 1 – Mataron A Juan Andres/Grilos Da Vida ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 1976/2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
A pair of boundary busting tunes steeped in tropical rhythms – one a rare Brazilian samba psych groover from 1976 – the other an Afro Latin and hip hop inspired jam from 2016! "Grilos Da Vida" by Sao Paulo's Banda Jardes is the vintage cut, kicking off with sweet organ and a soulful guitar groove and catchy bassline before some easygoing lead and backing vocals come in. The other side is a 2016 jam by Super Spanish Combo, a pretty great little melting pot Afro Latin soul – with really nice percussion and horns – with vocals that work in that mode, but also some skillful rap. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Pais Tropical ... LP
A&M, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album from the early 70s – one that has Sergio and crew doing Brazilian tracks with a bit of an LA studio feel – one that takes their older bossa groove into even more soulful territory! Dave Grusin and Tom Scott did the arrangements, both in the best styles of their key early work – which means that things are tight, but never to slick or overpolished. The album's a real standout gem that links together 2 different period's of Sergio's career – and titles include wonderful versions of "Asa Branca" and "Zanzibar", plus a version of "Pais Tropical", done here in one of the best versions we've ever heard! Other tracks include "So Many People", "Gone Forever", "I Know You", "After Midnight", "Morro Velho" and "Tonga". LP, Vinyl record album

Luaka Bop, 1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nearly 10 years after his first groundbreaking compilation of Brazilian music, David Byrne put together this second whopping set of MPB classics – with a scope of material that's expanded to include some excellent bits from more recent years. There's a total of 15 cuts in all – including "O Seu Olhar" by Arnaldo Antunes, "Coriosidade" by Tom Ze, "Tanacara" by Gonzaguinha, "Balanca Pema" by Marisa Monte, "Acho" by Carlos Carega, "Bog La Bog" by Carlinhos Brown, "Pregoes Do Rio" by Moleque De Rua, "Batuque" by Daniela Mercury, "Hoje Eu Quero Sair So" by Lenine, and "Rios, Pontes, & Overdrives" by Chico Science. A great way to sample some of the more adventurous music coming out of Brazil during the past 10 years! CD

✨✧ VariousTropical Britxotica! – Polynesian Pop & Placid Jazz From The Wild British Isles ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Britxotica sound is back in wonderful form – that fantastic postwar meeting of musical modes that happened every bit as much on the London scene as it did in the US! In fact, given the Caribbean and colonial ties of British culture, we might almost make the argument that some of these tunes have more of an authentic imprint than American exotica of the time – although "authentic" is hardly the name of the game here – as the music really gets its charms from the way that the sounds of the islands are reworked for the dancefloors of Soho at the end of the 50s. Titles include "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

✨✧ VariousTropical Disco Treasures ... CD
Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet set of tropics-infused disco cuts from the end of the 70s – not grooves recorded in the tropics, but American tracks that bring in a range of different flavors from south of the border! The mix here is a bit more upfront than some of the exotic disco of the time – as most of these numbers are relatively mainstream club cuts that make unabashed use of Latin, samba, and Caribbean modes – often just as an extra flavor sprinkled on top of more conventional disco grooves. The approach was a big one in Miami – where it's continued in variations over the years – and titles include "Jungle Drums" by Wild Fantasy, "For The Love Of My Man" by Celi Bee, "Que Sera Mi Vida" by Gibson Brothers, "The Runner" by Tropique, "Coconut Groove" by Rice & Beans Orchestra, "Spandisco" by Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues Band, "Another Cha Cha/Cha Cha Suite (radio mix)" by Santa Esmeralda, "Living In Ecstasy (ext mix)" by Ecstasy, "El Bimbo" by Bissmo Jet, and "Ritmo Do Brazil" by Ultimate.

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
A strong album from Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, aka La Dame Blanche – a Cuban-born, Paris-based singer, MC, flautist and percussionist – in set that mixes modern hip hop, cumbia, and dancehall-inspired urban production! The modern sound is pretty great, and her voice is really wonderful – singing and rhyming in Spanish, with a sound that's pretty wonderful – we're not sweating the language barrier, with a vibe as compelling as this! Titles include "Romantica", "William", "Yo Quiero", "Se Me Nota", "Olga", "Fresca", "Traka" feat Jose Luis El Nino, "Partir De 18 feat Bionik, "Yo Quiero Trabajar", "Dady Dady" and more. 12 tracks in all.

SivucaNorte Forte ... CD
Copacabana/Tropical (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $12.99
A range of beautiful work from Brazilian accordionist Sivuca – material recorded in the late 70s and early 80s in a variety of different styles – all of which showcase his mighty talents on his instrument! Some of the cuts here are straighter, more traditional forro – and others are warmer and more jazz-based – of the modes that Sivuca popularized in the 60s and 70s as he took the Brazilian accordion style from regional roots, and pushed it forward to a much wider audience with a unique blend of styles. All tracks are from recordings for the Copacabana label – most of which are out of print – and titles include "Ceu E Mar", "Nosso Encontro", "Nas Quebradas", "Coisas No 10", "Capoeira Poeira", "Gostosao", "Energia", and "Roseira Do Norte".

Nice couple of cuts by Spanish reggae, funk, soul and classic sci fi and horror soundtrack inspired combo The Transilvanians! The group's got surefire talent in laying down steady, soulful rhythms, which comes in especially handy on their cover of Laurel Aitken's "Boogie In My Bones", which has a really solid roosty vibe. The flipside take on "Ain't Got Not Home" is sweet, too, and both have some nice moments for the horns and piano to shine. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Croydon Municipal (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Exotica sounds, but with an especially soulful feel – which makes the tracks a perfect choice for this excellent collection! The work is in a special place between exotic instrumentals, teen pop, and deeper soul of the late 50s and early 60s – and most numbers here have that special balance you'll find in the popcorn soul underground – the kind of midtempo steppers that have really been getting a lot of play on dancefloors in recent years – especially when you want to cool off a bit from Northern Soul! As with other titles on the Croydon Municipal label, the track selection is divine – and titles include "The Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "Cafe Bohemian" by The Enchanters, "The Web" by Abie Baker, "Tabou" by The Jokers, "On A Tropical Island" by Anna Valentino, "Little Indian Girl" by Billy & The Moonlighters, "Cat Walk" by Jack Costanzo, and "Arabia" by The Delcos.

Gene AmmonsJungle Soul (Ca'Purange) (aka Bad Bossa Nova) (tiger cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Bad Bossa Nova is right – as Gene Ammons really hits a great groove here – one that's not exactly bossa, but which has lots of Latin and tropical touches! The session makes great use of 2 guitars at the same time – using that of Kenny Burrell for soulful rhythm, but also adding in Bucky Pizzarelli for some nice acoustic embellishments – in a mode that's similar to the soul jazz-com-bossa style used on records like Ike Quebec's Soul Samba or Charlie Rouse's Bossa Nova Bacchanal. The overall rhythms are a bit more complicated, and a bit more soul jazz based than those sets – with Hank Jones on piano, Oliver Jackson on percussion, and Al Hayes adding in some sweet extra bongo! Titles include the classic "Ca'Purange" – plus "Anna", "Yellow Bird", "Cae Cae", and "Moito Mato Grosso". Also issued under the title Bad Bossa Nova. LP, Vinyl record album

The group's tight and warm, with a really soulful feel and a bouncing groove that returns Jorge's sound to earlier years. Tracks include a number of classic numbers redone in ways that really open them up – and Jorge's extremely charming in this intimate setting, showing he hasn't lost his edge at all! Titles include "Taj Mahal", "Filho Maravilha", "Pais Tropical", "Que Pena", "Que Maravilha", "Mas Que Nada", "Chove Chuva", and "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas". CD

✨✧ Jorge BenJorge Ben (1969) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the most amazing early Jorge Ben LPs, recorded at the end of the 60s, when Jorge was singing with a stone-cold soul sound. The sharp, tight arrangements by Rogerio Duprat & Jose Briamonte made tracks like "Pais Tropical", "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", and "Que Pena" immediate classics – while the percussion and rhythms of Trio Mocoto provide a good part of the unique backdrop. The album is a mix of funky samba, soaring Brazilian soul, and sweeping orchestrations that give the whole thing a jazzy finish – and it's some of the best work that Jorge Ben ever recorded! Other tracks include "Criola", Cade Tereza", "Domingas", "Barbarella", "Quem Foi Que Roubou A Sopeira" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Max CillaLa Flute Des Mornes Vol 1 ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Traditional sounds from Martinique – but played in a very jazzy way by fluteman Max Cilla – whose instrument glides and soars over a range of lively percussion! The group features a bit of piano and bass, but the various drums really lead the sound – as does Cilla's flute, which takes on so many wonderful tones over the course of the album's nicely long tracks! The notes almost make the set appear to be more of an ethnographic album – but Cilla wrote all the tunes himself, from a very modern perspective – and recorded the album in Paris, with a very hip sound. Titles include "Ballad Dans La Foret D'Ajoupa Bouillon", "La Flute Des Mornes", "La Ronde Des Ecoliers", "Crespuscule Tropical", and "La Baie Du Robert". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gal CostaGal (1969) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from 1969, but also features some even heavier and more tripped out guitar – in a way that really pushes the psychedelic aspect of the work! The sound here is really amazing – very fuzzy and freaky at times, in ways that make the album one of the most rocking sets of the entire Tropicalia scene, but in ways that still hang onto the quirky experimental qualities of work by Os Mutantes or Caetano Veloso. Gal's vocals really rip out amazingly at times – light years away from the sweet sound of the late 70s, and more in the frenetic, urgent style you'd expect from the politically-charged scene that spawned the set. Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil join Gal on a great version of "Pais Tropical", Jards Macale guest stars on the classic "Empty Boat" – and other tracks include "Tuareg", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Pulsars E Quasars", and "Cultura E Civilizaco". Essential! LP, Vinyl record album

DelegationPromise Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
State/Big Break (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sound great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, and a way of putting over a tune that borrows a bit from the earlier east coast harmony scene, but which wraps things up in a completely different style of production. The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it's definitely a standout for the time – and a real maturation of an earlier male soul group mode. Titles here include the famous break track "Oh Honey", plus "The Promise Of Love", "Mr Heartbreak", "Where Is The Love", "Soul Trippin", and "Let Me Take You To The Sun". CD features new mastering – and bonus tracks – including "Love Is Like A Fire", "Honey I'm Rich", "Baby You're My Mystery", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", and "It Only Happens When I Look At You". CD

Japanese pianist Masaru Imada is in his best fusion mode here – working with great help from American players Tom Browne on trumpet, Grover Washington Jr on soprano and tenor sax, Steve Khan on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, and Steve Jordan on drums! Imada plays both acoustic and electric piano, and the set has that perfect mix that happened with the best albums of this type – when a brilliant Japanese jazz musician came into contact with the cream of the crop of the American electric jazz scene – on a record that's got a strong sense of soul throughout! Things are tight, but never too slick or commercial – again that special balance that makes so many Japanese fusion projects so different than the smoother American work of the period. Titles include "Tropical Butterfly", "Jumpin Dolphin", "Seacret Sounds", "Blue Marine", "Angelfish", and "Smile For You". CD

Trio/Solid (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $28.99
Masaru Imada gets a bit tropical here, but also picks up some great help on horns – thanks to guest work from the Brecker Brothers, whose performance on a few tracks really help give the set a strong soul fusion vibe! The core sounds come from Imada's quintet – which has the leader playing both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, with guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – and on those tracks that feature the Breckers, the whole thing really comes together – with that richness of sound and surprising current of soul that we love on the best Japanese fusion albums of the time. Even the non-Brecker tracks are pretty great – and titles include "Ripples In Recife", "Surf Dance", "Sunset Walk", "Gentle Breeze", and "Carnival". CD features a bonus radio edit of "Carnival". CD

James LastBeachparty 3 ... LP
Polydor (Germany), Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
A sunny sort of groove party from German Maestro James Last! Last had already been turning out lots of instrumental pop for the German scene in the 60s – but he reinvented his sound a bit with these classic Beachparty records from the early 70s – going for a groove that's upbeat and swinging, still with some of the brassy punch of before – but also adding in more tropical elements on percussion, and very effectively using a mixed male/female vocal group to add lyrics to the tunes! The singers are well-chosen – from British groups like Brotherhood Of Man, The Breakaways, and The Ladybirds – and vocals are all in English, with a sing-song sort of playfulness that might well be called a precursor to the sound of ABBA. And the music here is definitely in the same spirit of ABBA, too – poppy and catchy, as the Last crew take on lots of familiar hits of the day, and recast them into their own sort of groove.

Lyman's vibes are nice and spooky, ringing out in the echoey setting of the album – which was Henry Kaiser's incredible Aluminum Dome in Honolulu. A great bit of postwar colonial exotica trapped on wax, and brought back to the mainland for folks in suburban LA – and featuring the tracks "Magic Island", "Cubana Chant", "Fire Down Below", "Cumana", "Hana Pele", "Pele", and "Tropical".

Mondo SangueL'Isola Dei Dannati (Island Of The Damned) (180 gram pressing – with bonus poster) ... LP
All Score Media (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
A contemporary album, but one that serves as an overdue soundtrack for Luchino Martello's film Island Of The Damned from 1978 – presented here with just the right sort of sounds from Mondo Sangue! The music hits that perfect mix of groovy styles and island elements that we love in Italian soundtracks for tropical settings in the 70s – a bit of electric funk, touches of organic rhythms, and an overall style that's steeped in slinky sex – all with a vibe that's probably closest to the music of Stelvio Cipriani at the time! Production and presentation is perfect – the whole thing hardly sounds contemporary at all – and titles include "La Caccia Di Cocco", "Stranded & Exhausted", "Notte Senza Sonno", "La Castrazione Di Frank", "Rito Di Iniziazione Psichedelico", and "Arriva L'Aiuto".

As on other records, there's a strongly percussive vibe throughout – bongos from Roena, plus timbales, conga, and other percussion – all topped by a great horn section that features two trumpets, tenor, trombone, and flute – all of whom hit some wonderfully jazzy moments at time, filling in the set with some great tropical shades and colors! Vocals are by Tito Cruz and Sammy Gonzalez, and a number of well placed percussion and horn solos on just about every track.

A deep selection of grooves that are warm and breezy, but also nicely tripped out at times – way more than a simple compilation of sunny sounds – and instead a globe-spanning set of diverse gems!

Some of the styles here are more traditionally Cuban, but the music also shows definite influences from the larger Miami scene of the time – bits of funk, disco, and more – all filtered in alongside Latin percussion, horns, and Spanish-language vocals. The set features a whopping 23 tracks in all – many of which have never been reissued – with titles that include "Y Volvere" by Heaven, "Cubanito" by Frank Ascencio, "El Baile" by Continental Brass, "Miami Parai Mi" by Adams Apple, "Invierno Navidad" by Conjunto De Luis Santi, "Guantanamera" by Evaristo Quintanales, "Vereda Tropical" by Zodiac, "Viento" by Marta Perez, "Havana Gira" by Clockwork, "Calabaza Calabaza" by Pearly Queen, "Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado" by Antiques, "Besame Mucho" by Mantrap, "La Senorita Lola" by Ray & His Court, "Yo No Bailo Con Lola" by Willy Chirino, "La Negra Tomasa" by Orquesta De Pepe Delgado, and "Na Na" by Coke.

The CD includes 13 cuts, including versions of "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, & Tom Ze; "Divino Maravilhoso" by Gal Costa, "Atras Do Trio Eletrico" by Moraes Moreira, "Alegria, Alegria" by Daniela Mercury, "Bat Macumba" by Ile Aye, and "Soy Loco Por Ti America" by Araketu! The set's packaged in a cool sleeve with lots of colorful images in collage, and lyrics to all the songs. And in case you're wondering, the production standards are good, and not too poppy. The stuff's not as tripped out as it was in the 60's, but the set's still a great tribute to some of the greatest Brazilian songs of all time. CD

✨✧ VariousTropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled not just with great music, but also an overwhelming amount of notes that trace the history of Brazilian music and art through their changes in relation to Tropicalia! In fact, the notes are almost worth the price of the compilation alone – very densely written over 48 pages in the CD booklet, with more information in one place than we've ever seen before. But as you might imagine, it's the music that really makes the set special – and Soul Jazz have done an excellent job of pulling together key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey!

Arnaldo BaptistaLoki (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polygram/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A freaky little solo album by Arnaldo Baptista of Os Mutantes – a set that's every bit as wild as you might guess from the cover! The album was recorded right after the first few classics by Os Mutantes – in 1974 – and Baptista wrote all of the songs, except for one, which lists "Os Mutantes" in the credits – which is an illustration of how strongly the sound of the record is tied to that group. Unlike the vocals of the group albums, though, the tracks feature Arnaldo's 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-psych 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 3 (CD & book) ... CD
RGE/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing work from a young Chico Buarque – a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by Maestro Gaya in a mode that recalls some of the best bits of the time on the Elenco or Forma labels. But at another level, there's also a personal and slightly folksy style that reminds us of the initial power of Geraldo Vandre – a sound that's clearly present in Buarque's work, and which stands in a direct line to the best strengths of the emerging Tropicalia generation. The set's filled with classics that include "Carolina", "Roda Viva", "O Velho", "Ate Pensei", "Sem Fantasia", and "Desencontro" – and a few tracks feature Chico in duets with either Toquinho, Cristina, or MPB4! 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 Buarque & OthersChico Buarque Songbook Vol 1 ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1999. Used ... $9.99
An amazing tribute to the great work of Chico Buarque! Chico's an artist who's had by far the most wide-ranging effect of any of Brazil's MPB giants – and his rich history of songwriting spans the bossa years, through the Tropicalia era, right up into the modern age. This whopping 8 volume series in Lumiar's Songbook pays an incredible tribute to Chico's rich volumes of work – and it features some of Brazil's greatest artists interpreting his songs. Unlike other Lumiar volumes in this style, Chico doesn't seem to appear on all the discs – and instead the focus is mostly on his work as a writer. This first volume includes the tracks "Olhos Nos Olhos" by Nana Caymmi, "Apesar De Voce" by Beth Caravalho, "Joana Francesa" by Miucha, "Leve" by Carol Saboya e O Trio, "Basta Um Dia" by Ze Renaldo e Jaques Morelenbaum, "Assentamento" by Edu Lobo, and "Morro Dois Irmaos" by MPB-4. 14 tracks in all!

Celly CampelloEstupido Cupido (6CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), 1959/1960/1961/1968. Used 6CD ... $38.99
A wealth of early work from the lovely Celly Campello – one of the biggest girl pop icons in the Brazilian scene of the 60s! Celly's work is more inspired by American rock and roll than previous Brazilian styles – and as such, these records are a crucial part in the formation of the jovem guarda sound of the pre-Tropicalia years – the bright, bouncy approach to Brazilian music that's perfectly summed up in the sounds of Celly! The package features six full albums from Campello's years at EMI/Odeon – the classic Estupido Cupido (1959), plus Broto Certinho (1960), A Bonequinha Que Canta (1960), A Graca De Celly Campello E As Musicas De Paul Anka (1961), Brotinha Encantador (1961), and the compelling Celly album from 1968 – which shows a surprising maturation of her style.

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".

A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao".

One of the most mindblowing albums ever recorded – anywhere, anytime! This 1969 set stands as one of the greatest records ever cut by Gal Costa – done at the height of the Tropicalia movement, and featuring a sublime mix of styles that really gets the spirit of the movement right. Arrangements are by the legendary Rogerio Duprat – who effortlessly shifts the backings between stark electronics, sweet bossa, gliding strings, jazzy piano, and baroque orchestrations that dance around with a surprising amount of grooves! Tunes include some classics by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Gilberto Gil – served up in amazing new versions by Gal and Duprat! Titles include "Nao Identificado", "Lost in the Paradise", "Que Pena", "Sebastiana", "Namorinho De Portao", "Divino Maravilhoso", and "Deus E O Amor". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Lion, New Copy ... About December 15, 2017
Fantastic work from Miguel De Deus – an artist with more than enough funky talent to live up to the ambitious title of the album – given that he started his career working in the famous Os Brazoes combo! That group were a key part of the Tropicalia years, and mixed up a heady brew of funk and psych – and by the time of these tracks, Miguel is out on his own, working in an even more soul-drenched style that shares plenty with the New York funk scene of the time – particularly the sharp, tight modes of Fatback Band, and some of the groups recording for the De-Lite Records label! Lyrics are all in Portuguese, but the grooves are very universal – and the album's got a sort of global funk appeal that you'll only find in a rare few records from the Samba Soul generation of the 70s. Titles include "Black Soul Brother", "Cinco Anos", "Mister Funk", "Flaca Louca", "Pode Se Queimar", and "Fabrica De Papeis". CD

El KintoEl Kinto – Complete Collection ... CD
Lion, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
An incredible collection of work by El Kinto – a short-lived but crucially important group in the Uruguay rock scene of the late 60s – finally given their due in this overstuffed deluxe CD package! El Kinto were a seminal link between the beat group sounds of the earlier South American scene, and some of the headier, tripper work to come in the psychedelic years – and their music was an unusual blend of local roots and more ambitious rock – served up in styles that were somewhat different than the candombe music of other artists on the scene. Core rock instrumentation was often augmented by a bit of Latin percussion – used in a way that created a nicely earthy feel at the bottom of most of the tunes, which was in contrast to the cleaner, but also somewhat spare use of guitars on the top. There's a criss-crossing sensibility here that's not unlike Brazilian Tropicalia at times – although clearly not as politically motivated, nor as culturally radical – and what really blows us away about these tunes is the overall sense of sound – a simple, but extremely effective placement of all the simplest elements, to create music without easy comparison (even though we've been trying for the last few lines!) Group members include percussionist Ruben Rada and South American rock legend Eduardo Mateo – and the package features 16 tracks by El Kinto – plus 6 more by related artists The Knights, Aldo Y Daniel, and Roberta Lee. Titles include "Jose", "Mejor Me Voy", "Estoy Sin Ti", "Muy Lejos Te Vas", "Esa Tristeza", "Don Pascual", "Damelo", "Pippo", "Yo Volvere Por Ti", "Como El Brillo Del Sol", "La Felicita", and "Penas De Sal".

Lindolpho Gaya & Rogerio DupratOs Maestros Premiados ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing split album – one that features instrumental work by 2 of our favorite arrangers ever! Both Gaya and Rogerio Duprat were key forces in the sound of Brazil at the end of the 60s – Gaya for his soaring, leaping, often-funky arrangements for EMI/Odeon during the Blue Brazil generation – and Duprat for his playfully modern and inventive backings for some of the most important Tropicalia albums of the era! Gaya's presented here on side one of the record – working in a full set of orchestrations that's almost a bit more lush than his regular work, although still grooving with a fair bit of rhythms – a bit different than his Odeon tunes, but still plenty nice. Duprat's side is our favorite, though – and it's a great showcase of the way he was working out modern ideas in more conventional settings before his work with the bigger singers of MPB – as the setting's a bit more standard, but still really wonderful – somewhere between the work of Edu Lobo on large orchestrations, and the harder-grooving moments of Luis Arruda Paes. Gaya tunes include "Carolina", "O Sim Pelo Nao", "Travessia", "Sao Os Do Norte Que Vem", and "Margarida". Duprat tunes include "Alegria Alegria", "Roda Viva", "Gabriela", "Domingo No Parque", "Maria Carnaval E Cinzas", and a wonderful version of "Ponteio". CD
