Amado Maita - Amado Maita (1972)

I have been wondering a lot about an issue, which is the unavailability of really important albums in my LP collection, no matter they are available or not at Loronix. When available, I think they should be reposted with a flawless digital transfer and high quality scans of front and back covers, including the lossless FLAC option. I keep waiting, waiting and waiting for a chance to find these albums and give them a better approach to our community at Loronix first page.

Anyway, I took a decision, I will not wait longer, since some of these albums are quite impossible to find or are available only by prices I cannot afford. Let’s start today a series of posts or repostings of these fantastic albums using versions taken from the Internet or made available by friends in the past. Beginning this new concept, it is better making on the best possible manner. Let’s see.

This is Amado Maita – Amado Maita (1972), for Copacabana, with new MP3 files, featuring 320Kbps bitrate, against the previous 192Kbps. Additionally, cover artwork was improved with scratch removal and other adjustments. Cosmetic details since the most important thing is to bring Amado Maita back to evidence, giving a chance to new and old friends to get in contact with this great musician. Check also the comment section with several important statements about Amado Maita, including a beautiful writing of Mariana Maita, Amado Maita daughter, which is the same Mariana of track 02 – Mariana (Amado Maita), reproduce just bellow. You should also visit Ed Motta’s Empoeirado web show, featuring an interview with Amado Maita, follow this link, here. Tracks include:

“O que dizer sobre este album e principalmente sobre o lindo decreto de felicidade feito pra mim? Para mim mais que uma obra prima a concretizacao ainda que sem sucesso do seu talento apaixonante por que assim ele era. Tudo era musica na vida dele e agradeco por poder ouvir essas e outras perolas que infelizmente poucos conhecem. Orgulho imenso ainda poder viver a musica de Amado Maita porque para mim eh imortal!”
