Gal CostaDiva From Bahia – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Wrasse (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
To our ears, Gal's always been a bit less of a diva than other Brazilian female singers – much more of an intimate, personal artist – with a sound that's changed over the years, but has always maintained a level of charm that's undeniable. The set brings together an assortment of Gal's work for Philips from the 60s, 70s, and 80s – including some of her best early Tropicalia numbers, some standout cuts from the 70s MPB years, and a few later gems that show her taking on a gentler, jazzier style. The set features track-by-track notes on the tunes, and titles include "Que Pena", "Acai", "Balance", "Baby", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Modinha Para Gabriela", "Sonho Meu", "India", "Sua Estupidez", and "Mamae Coragem".

MC SolaarQui Seme Le Vent Recolte Le Tempo ... LP
Polygram/Wrasse (France), 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 44.99
The full-length debut of MC Solaar – and a record that really opened up the door for French language hip hop around the globe! The different structure of French didn't always make it as conducive to beats and rhymes as English – but Solaar found a way to really make things happen, as you'll hear on this set – with really creative wordplay and a unique sense of timing – and a sense of wit and intelligence that put him in the same territory as the Native Tongues on our side of the Atlantic! Titles include "Caroline", "La Musique Adoucit Les Moeurs", "Bouge De La", "Funky Dreamer", "Quartier Nord", "Victime De La Mode", "Armand Est Mort", and "A Temps Partiel". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio – Sergio Mendes Favorites ... CD
Wrasse (UK), 1960s/Mid 80s. Used ... $4.99
Groovy groovy stuff – and a sweet little collection of Sergio's greatest work with his groups Brasil 66 and Brasil 88! The format of the ensemble was an instant hit – with 2 female voices harmonizing in the lead, bossa rhythms bubbling under the bottom, and plenty of sweet jazzy work on the keyboards from Sergio himself. The set brings together 24 tracks in all – mostly from the group's glory days at the end of the 60s, plus a few more overlooked gems from their mid 80s return to traditional bossa rhythms. The whole thing works wonderfully as a groovy bossa party from the very first note – and delightfully trips its way through tunes that include "Wave", "Pais Tropical", "Chove Chuva", "Mas Que Nada", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Like A Lover", "The Frog", "Bim Bom", "Trilhos Urbanos", "Puzzle Of Hearts", and "Pretty World".

Caetano VelosoZii & Zie ... CD
Universal/Wrasse (UK), 2009. Used ... $8.99
Completely compelling work from Caetano Veloso – proof that his genius hasn't faltered at all over the years! The album follows nicely in the format of Veloso's prevous Ce album – with small combo backing, and a stripped-down sound that's light years from what you might expect from an aging artist of his stature – quite edgey at times, and with a youthful vibrancy, and sense of presence that's really amazing! Even when laidback, the tunes have a really powerful sort of quality – one that has Veloso's wonderful vocals right out front, backed by just a bit of guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. Moreno Veloso co-produced the album with group member Pedro Sa, and the set's got a lot of the energy of his own wonderful work with Kassin and Domenico – although a bit less quirky overall – and titles include "Falso Leblon", "Tarado Ni Voce", "Menina Da Ria", "Lapa", "Diferentemente", "Perdeu", "Sem Cais", and "Por Quem".
