Frevo Pecadinho 1: Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", which begins the album The sound of the record is impossible to describe adequately, but it's got that beautiful soulful feel that all of Milton's albums from the time had, and is expanded through the participation of the other rich talents.
Teimosia A5: Tim Maia add artist to watchlist Tim Maia 1970.
Cachorro Urubu B5: Nascente A3: Wave9 C5: Joao Donato E Donatinho add artist to watchlist Sintetizamor. A Lua E Eu. Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music - a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years - but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s!
Product Support: Lee is clearly the star of the show here - singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album - pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias - both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed.
One Note Samba A5: Menino Bonito A5: Fim De Sonho A5: Juca B4: Ouro De Tolo. Triste C4: An essential collection of rare material from this legendary Brazilian group - and a set that shows the importance they had in the Tropicalia movement beyond their own famous albums!
Aqui E Agora A4: Se O Caso E Chorar 3: The band had a style that mixed folksy percussion with honest personal songwriting, plus occasional touches of elements gleaned from the larger influences in Brazilian rock at the time. Era Nova B4: Quiet Nights B2: Alimente B5: There's maybe a bit more guitar than on some of the Milton Nascimento work of the period - but used in a fuzzy way that slides in nicely with some of the jazzy phrasing of the instrumentation - which is delivered with help from key contemporaries who include Beto Guedes, Nelson Angelo, Toninho Horta, and Tenorio Jr.
