Loronix birthday is also time for some special and very requested reposts. I don’t run statistics on reposts and I think this album is the second on number of requests, the first I don’t need to say what it. It was released in January with a problem on track 01 – A Time for US with a very low quality. I was amazing to find this LP at Sao Paulo Vinyl fair for only R$ 10, less than five dollars, original 1969 Brazilian issue. Now Loronixers can enjoy the missing track and get the whole set on a better quality, a miracle that takes place only at Loronix 1st anniversary. I’m gathering the first post text and I hope you enjoy these special birthday reposts.

This is Astrud Gilberto – I Haven’t Got Anything Better to Do (1969), for Verve, a forgotten Astrud Gilberto work taking in consideration her whole discography. In the liner notes, Astrud says that it is her “fireplace album”, something that I could not understand why hearing it. This is truly different Astrud Gilberto LP and very enjoyable to listen. The whole set has a melancholic atmosphere making a perfect match with her interpretation and stlye. Tracks include:

01 – A Time For Us (Tema de Amor de Romeu e Julieta) (Nino Rota / L. Kusik / E. Snyder)
02 – I Haven’t Got Anything Better To Do (P. Vance / L. Pockriss)
03 – Didn’t We (J. Webb)
04 – Wailing Of The Willow (H. Nilsson)
05 – Where’s The Love (B. Weinstein / Michel Legrand)
06 – The Sea Is My Soil (I Remember When) (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta / Vrs. Peter Udell)
07 – Trains And Boats And Planes (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
08 – World Stop Turning (M. Charlap / Peter Udell)
09 – Without Him (H. Nilsson)
10 – Wee Small Hours (B. Hilliard / D. Mann)
11 – If (The Biggest Little Word) (G. Sherman / Peter Udell)

Atenção Zeca & loronixers: As faixas 09 e 10 estão trocadas: a 09 é “Wee Small Hours” e a 10 é “Without Him”.

I bought this album on vinyl when it was first released without ever hearing anything from it. Passing a record store I saw the fantastic sleeve in the window and went and bought the LP there and then. I just love every track on this album and it still sounds as good today as when I first played it nearly 40 years ago.
