AdHoc is a really special contributor that takes me by surprise every time, being impossible to guess what comes next from his collection. What amazes me most from AdHoc is the always-perfect quality of his cover scans and his flawless transfers. Additionally, AdHoc includes information that is not available anywhere. I’m only an operator with AdHoc posts, a very happy operator by the way. Take this album by example, I never heard about such music. Thanks AdHoc. Let’s see.
This is Chico Buarque & Ennio Morricone – Sonho de um Carnaval (1970), released in 2000 by Rym Music. There is a wonderful story about this album and a strong connection with another record by Chico Buarque & Ennio Morricone, Per Un Pugno di Samba (1970), already available at Loronix.
Per un Pugno di Samba has Italian lyrics and was released only in Italy, since the record company executives did not see any commercial perspective to release an album with Italian lyrics outside Italy. The album was not successful from a commercial standpoint when released and was not issued in Brazil or any other country. However, as time goes by, Per un Pugno di Samba became a mania among collectors and fans.
What I did not know and AdHoc told me is: Chico Buarque recorded in that same 1970 session, Portuguese lyrics on top of the original Per un Pugno di Samba album. This “version” with Portuguese Lyrics was not released until the year of 2000, when this French label Rym Music made it available in France as Chico Buarque & Ennio Morricone – Sonho de um Carnaval. I never heard about this and probably you did not also. Thanks AdHoc for another strike. This album is now out of print and I think it was not released in any other country besides France. Loronixers should appreciate this really wonderful find, as I did today when you sent it. Tracks include:
