Publicado em: Tuesday, April 08, 2008 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! Until the end of the old posts recovery task I will be making only a single post daily. I believed this new approach would allow more time to recovery activities, but a single post needs to be planned and chosen with dedication. I am sure that Baden Powell and Estudos, one of its most praised albums is a flawless and high quality release. Let’s see.
This is Baden Powell – Estudos (1971), for Elenco, featuring Baden Powell guitar with accompaniment of Alfredo Bessa percussion. Estudos is a really wonderful album; it is dense, soulful, providing new experiences no matter how many times you take it for a spin. Once again, I’m gathering Brazil-on-guitar Estudos review, one of the greatest musician tribute websites available at the internet, no matter what kind of music. Tracks include:
BrazilOnGuitar says: One of Baden Powell’s most popular records does not reveal its recording date. Even extensive research could not answer our questions. Estudos is one of his most experimental studio recordings and very well known. BP recorded only together with the percussionist Alfredo Bessa. Partly he over-dubbed guitar, bass and percussion, now and then he uses sound effects. Some compositions already show harmonies of Apaixonado. Hardly any other record contains so many solo pieces that became guitarist’s standard repertoire quickly. It remains unknown if the material was originally intended for the planned solo record to be done in December 1971.
Digitalisation of the vinyl record: the first German CD-release from 1990 (821 855-2) is in AAD and comes closest to the original sound of the LP, even if partly the sound is too low. The German CD sounds like an unplayed vinyl record without noise. The re-release from 2003 removed the sound differences and has a carefully revised sound. The result is good, but we personally prefer the version from 1990. We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation and Susumu san for his cover.
PS.: I’m making available the first Elenco vinyl issue. I hope you approve my transfer!
