Link original: Varios Artistas – I Bienal do Samba (1968)
Publicado em: Monday, November 19, 2007 by zecalouro
I could not avoid a big smile when I found this album available at a vinyl shop for a unbelievable price last week. It’s a ritual to phone call Caetano Rodrigues to report these amazing findings. Caetano almost faint when I tell him a find such like this one, one of the 100 essential albums on Luiz Americo website and a really solid record. Caetano Rodrigues sent it to us in the beginning of this year, but I think it is necessary to provide it again to Loronixers. I can tell you with no hesitation that we have great music here. Let’s see.
This is I Bienal do Samba (1968), for Philips, featuring awarded tunes from I Bienal do Samba, a music contest, such as the old festivals from the 60’s, featuring renowned Brazilian artists. I have no doubt this is the best Festival album recorded, this competition was amazing and the winner was Elis Regina, performing Lapinha with Os Originais do Samba and Baden Powell, the remaining positions are indicated on track list. This record is delicious to hear and I’m glad that we now have improved cover artwork and FLAC files alternative. Tracks include:
