Caetano Rodrigues was absolutely right last week when he recommended to take a look at this classic early material by the Brazilian singer and songwriter Joao Bosco, brand new artist at Loronix, in response to the last Neusa Maria release. Thanks for it Caetano, actually, I would say this album is performed by two artists, Joao Bosco and his longtime lyrics partner, the legendary Aldir Blanc. Let’s check what we have inside this truly amazing cover.

This is Joao Bosco – Galos de Briga (1976), for RCA Victor, very nice produced album by Joao Bosco with mysterious boleros and ballads and very good Samba tunes. Aldir Blanc lyrics are all about the way of life in Rio de Janeiro with surrealistic scenes of futebol (soccer), wife and husband matters, favelas, etc. There is also a lot of the legendary Luiz Eca contribution to Galos de Briga, he is in charge of arrangements, conduction and also piano playing. Galos de Briga is another of those Brazilian albums from the 70’s with that never ending personnel listing that makes you feel curious about when reading, made available just bellow.

I was waiting a long time to get my ears into this 3rd JB album. The first two are absolutely outstanding. The 2nd, “Caça à Raposa” (1975) is perhaps my favourite ‘samba’ album of all-time.

Will have to give this one further listening, but at first glance “Galos de Briga” flirts more with mainstream than the previous albums. However, there are a lot of great cuts here and a lot of great musicians. And, yes, a great cover art.
