Doces Bárbaros, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil & Maria Bethânia - Doces Bárbaros

I have a nice connection with this album and I’m glad it is back to Loronix again. The first time it was made available, it lasts less than 24 hours. I made it by mistake, a few copies were already being sold by an on-line store and now it has gone definitively out of print, which is a shame, this is a classic. As I said, this album was important for my background as an amateur musician and also to drag my attention to Brazilian music and the four giants that share the role of main performer, the tropicalia legends Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa and Caetano’s sister Maria Bethania. Let’s see.

This is Doces Barbaros – Doces Barbaros (1976), for Philips, according with many reviews I read today, this is one of the nicest Brazilian popular music albums recorded in the 70’s. The group and the concert were assembled to celebrate 10 years of their artistic career. I also learn something that I did not know today, a DVD was released with original footage of these concerts as a documentary featuring backstage scenes and live performances. Meanwhile, let’s stay with this double album, in the spirit of Carmen Miranda Centennial. Tracks include:

Caetano Veloso - A Bossa De Caetano

Hello, good evening! I think you should now be asking yourself why zeca is publishing an album released so early in 2000, which is a baby, according with regular Loronix releases, focused on much older music from the 50’s to the 80’s.

The answer is quite simple, this album is out of print and it is really a treat, featuring Caetano Veloso Bossa Nova repertoire, taken from his releases from 1967 to 1999. Additionally, this is a lovely album and Caetano Veloso celebrates today, 07 August, his 66th anniversary. I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso, one of the artists that most influenced my way of thinking Brazilian popular music. Happy Birthday, Caetano. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – A Bossa de Caetano (2000), for Philips, featuring fourteen Caetano Veloso Bossa Nova cuts, including compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, Joao Gilberto, and others. Only two Caetano Veloso compositions are available here. My very difficult choice to Loronix Preview Center is 13 – Oba, La, La – Bim, Bom, Joao Gilberto compositions. Tracks include:

01 – Summer Samba (Samba de Verao) (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 – Chega De Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Desde Que O Samba e Samba (Caetano Veloso)
04 – Coisa Mais Linda (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Get Out Of Town (Cole Porter)
06 – Quando Eu Penso Na Bahia (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
07 – Chuvas de Verao (Fernando Lobo)
08 – Lindeza (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
10 – Nega Maluca (Fernando Lobo / Evaldo Ruy) Billie Jean (Michael Jackson) Eleanor Rigby (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
11 – Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira) Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Samba e Amor (Chico Buarque)
13 – Oba-la-la (Joao Gilberto) Bim Bom (Joao Gilberto)
14 – Na Baixa Do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)

Caetano Veloso & Fagner - Disco De Bolso

I think that everybody remember when Loronix released a single with Antonio Carlos Jobim performing a very, let’s say, primitive Aguas de Marco. That album was the first release of a new magazine called Disco de Bolso, featuring a single with a well-now artist and a new artist on side B. The concept was excellent, but for reasons that I could not check, the magazine did not survive to the second edition, which is exactly what we have here, kindly sent by my Mother. Let’s see.

This is Disco de Bolso do Pasquim Numero 2 – Caetano Veloso e Fagner (1972), for Zen, featuring on side A Caetano Veloso, performing A Volta da Asa Branca, recorded live at Teatro Joao Caetano, Rio de Janeiro. Side B brings the new artist, Fagner, performing Mucuripe (Belchior / Fagner). Caetano Veloso does not have a support group, only his violao, while Fagner plays violao and is backed by Ivan Lins, playing organ. It is sad to know this magazine had such a short life. Both new artists (remember the first had Joao Bosco on side B) are now respected artists in Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – A Volta da Asa Branca (Luiz Gonzaga) with Caetano Veloso
02 – Mucuripe (Fagner / Belchior) with Fagner

Caetano Veloso - Qualquer Coisa (1975)-FRONT

I thought I could show and review this album without saying I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso. So I decided to be open and honest with you, I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso and this album is definitively one of his best releases in the 70’s. I could realize how great it is after spinning today after many years. Qualquer Coisa was recorded in the same session of Joia (Caetano Veloso masterpiece) and were released simultaneously, so we should take this one as the continuation of Joia. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Qualquer Coisa (1975), for Philips, featuring the piano of Joao Donato and Quarteto em Cy as special guest on track 07 – Jorge de Capadocia. I had the chance to listen to this album as soon it was released with the age of ten, being very important for me, Caetano Veloso renditions of three The Beatles tunes available on Side B, were my first contact with The Beatles music. I read several reviews saying these three cuts spoils this album, but I like them very much as I like the whole experience provided by Caetano Veloso with Qualquer Coisa, which is an album that you will spin several times. Tracks include:

VellosoBethaniaGil (1968)

Here we go on another nice album, courtesy of the great JOAO-SP and his package of LPs featuring so far Maysa, Os Demonios da Garoa, Quinteto Violado, Adoniran Barbosa, Radames Gnattali and Rafael Rabello, Paulinho Nogueira, Nara Leao & Roberto Menescal and Elis Regina with Zimbo Trio. There is more to come and we did not reach 50% of JOAO-SP albums. Let’s see another.
This is Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania & Gilberto Gil – Velloso, Bethania, Gil (1968), for RCA. I did not have time to make the research needed to understand if this album is a compilation. However, I think that side A features a compilation with tracks taken from previous releases of Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania and Gilberto Gil, while side B brings new material with Maria Bethania performing Noel Rosa repertoire. My perception is that JOAO-SE sent us two albums in one, being side B the one that I like most with Maria Bethania performing six gorgeous Noel Rosa tunes with her unique voice. Personnel listing was not credited by RCA. Tracks include:

01 – Cavaleiro (Caetano Veloso) with Caetano Veloso
02 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / Joao Augusto) with Gilberto Gil
03 – Samba em Paz (Caetano Veloso) with Caetano Veloso

Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso e Gilberto Gil - Brasil (1981)

I’m feeling like a writer with a creative crisis to describe this beauty of an album. Perhaps my problem is to understand why this unusual and late Bossa Nova session featuring international musicians could result in such a solid album. Joao Gilberto has the control, playing the role of arranger and producer to work together with Tropicalia icons Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil to make this sublime record. This is an essential album that everybody should take for a listening and file as special on your Brazilian music affair.

This is Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso e Gilberto Gil – Brasil (1981), for WEA, a short session with six songs featuring Joao Gilberto guitar, the voices of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and a special participation of Maria Bethania on track 04 – No Tabuleiro da Baiana. Personnel listing brings the acclaimed pianist and arranger Clare Fischer and Paulinho da Costa, the only Brazilian musician besides Joao Gilberto. Tracks include:


Joao Gilberto

Caetano Veloso - Cinema Transcendental (1979)

When Cinema Transcendental was released, I had several adolescent philosophical discussions to understand the meaning of this cover artwork with Caetano Veloso at the beach not showing his face. Almost 30 years later, you get older, wiser and straightforward. I think Caetano tell us with this cover how we should listen to this album, lazy on the beach, doing nothing and letting the time goes. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Cinema Transcendental (1979), for Philips. If you were in Brazil in 1979, you should remember most of these 12 tunes, several tracks from Cinema Transcendental are among the most popular Caetano Veloso tunes, such as 01 – Lua de Sao Jorge, 04 – Menino do Rio, 07 – Trilhos Urbanos, 09 – Cajuina, among others. I could not decided Loronix Preview Center featured track, and I’m making track 01 – Lua de Sao Jorge just because it is the opening track. Have a nice Sunday and thanks for this wonderful start of 2008 at Loronix. Tracks include:

Maria Bethania & Caetano Veloso - Ao Vivo (1978)-BACK

It was very hard to decide this closing post. We have been on a safe course of posts and reposts of classic albums from the golden age of Bossa Nova, such like yesterday’s Alaide Costa and previous Quarteto em Cy with Tamba Trio, Nara Leao and Edu Lobo with Tamba Trio, anthological albums by legendary artists. However, it is now time to advance a decade and check something very solid from the 70’s. I hope you get pleased with my choice, as I got really amazed with Maria Bethania live performance when I took this album for a spin this afternoon, and she duets with his well-known brother, Caetano Veloso. Let’s see.

This is Maria Bethania & Caetano Veloso – Ao Vivo (1978), for Philips, recorded live in Canecao nightclub, Rio de Janeiro. I saw several Caetano Veloso concerts and I could remember this one. This is such like a rehearsal between brothers in their places. My highlight goes to 07 – Leaozinho, perhaps I was used with Caetano Veloso interpretation for this song and Maria Bethania just turns it on a new experience. Philips credited musicians in the set. Tracks include:


Tomaz Improta
Rosinha de Valenca
Perinho Albuquerque

Juarez Araujo
(sax, flute)
Paulinho Braga

Caetano Veloso - Muito (1978)

It is great to see Caetano Veloso again at Loronix, and it is fantastic to see Caetano Veloso with an album that had a tremendous influence on my choices on music and on choices of the friends I use to make music together in 1978. Muito is not among Caetano Veloso albums that everybody acclaims, but it has very beautiful moments, especially on tunes like Ca-Ja, Muito and Sampa, probably, the most successful songs that came out of Muito. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso e A Outra Banda da Terra – Muito Dentro da Estrela Azulada (1978), for Philips. I forgot to say something about this cover in the last paragraph. Dona Cano is the name of the old lady with Caetano Veloso and also her mother, really awesome cover. Muito has A Outra Banda da Terra, which is Caetano’s support band in the 70’s and 80’s, featuring Arnaldo Brandao, a great guy and a great bassist that I had the chance to meet and take classes. Anyway, I will let you with Caetano Veloso during this Sunday, combined with Nelson Cavaquinho, we will have two albums of two artists that I like most. Have a nice Sunday. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Saturday, November 24, 2007 by zecalouro

Although not a Tropicalia album, this is the grand close of three Tropicalia releases at Loronix, started with Nara Leao – Nara Leao (1968), a awesome AdHoc contribution, immediately followed by a essential Tropicalia album recorded by Gal Costa, Gal Costa – Gal Costa (1969) and now one of Caetano Veloso masterpieces, Caetano Veloso – Caetano Veloso (1969). Three solid self-titled listens with something in common, three Philips releases, three self-titled albums and Caetano Veloso compositions spread throughout the 36 tracks released. This is another contribution by Dona Iara, and it seems to me that she never heard her albums, the media is clean as never took out of envelop in all these years. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Caetano Veloso (1969), for Philips, also known as Caetano Veloso “White Album”, really inspired by The Beatles – White Album, a great Caetano Veloso reference in all his discography. It is amazing to think this is Caetano Veloso second album, this music sounds fresh and some tracks are quite revolutionary. I have been wondering what direction Caetano Veloso would follow if not taken from Brazil to exile in London, just after recording this essential record. Anyway, Maestro Rogerio Duprat delivers arrangements and also plays the role of musical director and for our pleasure; Philips gives complete personnel listing this time. Tracks include:


Rogerio Duprat

I could not resist showing another Caetano Veloso album that went recently out of print again. Perhaps I’m really bored with the infrastructure problems that happened this weekend and decided to make another of my Caetano Veloso favorites. Anyway, what I’m really sure is that you cannot miss this one. It is really hard to review Caetano Velloso as it is very hard to get the whole experience of his records in a first hearing. Take care with this one. In spite of being a fantastic song, the opening track features some funky and disco music arrangements that do not represents the rest of the album, which is truly beautiful. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Bicho (1977), for Philips, frequently taken by mistake as Caetano Veloso & Banda Black Rio – Bicho Baile Show, recorded one year later. Bicho is the outcome of Caetano Veloso experiences with African music, by the time he attended the Negro Festival of Art and Culture in Lagos, Nigeria. I know this album by heart and probably many friends who live in Brazil know most of these tunes. My highlights goes to 02 – Two Naira Fifty Kobo, 04 – Olha o Menino and my favorite, 09 – Alguem Cantando, with the special participation of Nicinha, Caetano Veloso’s sister. Tracks include:


Thomas Improta, Antonio Adolfo
Perinho Santana, Perinho Albuquerque
(guitar, violao)
Arnaldo Brandao, Moacyr Albuquerque, Luizao, Rubao Sabino
Vinicius Cantuaria, Eneas Costa
Djalma Correa, Bira da Silva, Eneas Costa
Hamilton, Maestro Formiga, Wanderley

Publicado em: Saturday, October 27, 2007 by zecalouro

This is a long time request of many Loronixers, it has gone out of print and it is finally being made available at Loronix. Domingo is both Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso – with his last name spelled on the cover with two Ls – debut LP, recorded before the creation of the Tropicalia movement. This is very important, I file this album as Bossa Nova, instead of Tropicalia. Let’s see.

This is Gal e Caetano Velloso – Domingo (1967), for Philips, featuring lovely Caetano Veloso compositions performed together with Gal Costa. I think all these Caetano Veloso tunes – with some additional songs by Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo and Sidney Miller – are well known for many Loronixers and some are still performed on radios and concerts on regular basis.

Domingo features songs that were later recorded by Joao Gilberto, such as: Avarandado and Coracao Vagabundo, everything arranged by Dori Caymmi, Roberto Menescal and Francis Hime. I thought I would find an average album performed by great artists at the beginning of their career, but Doming is solid, Gal Costa sings beautifully and the underrated Caetano Veloso violao playing shines on each track. I urge Loronixers to feedback this album, considered lost on my radar, but a real treasure. Musicians were not credited. Tracks include:

01 – Coração Vagabundo (Caetano Veloso)
02 – Onde Eu Nasci Passa Um Rio (Caetano Veloso)
03 – Avarandado (Caetano Veloso)
04 – Um Dia (Caetano Veloso)
05 – Domingo (Caetano Veloso)
06 – Nenhuma Dor (Caetano Veloso)
07 – Candeias (Edu Lobo)
08 – Remelexo (Caetano Veloso)

I’m feeling great showing Loronixers one of the artists that I like most and one of my all time favorites albums. Caetano Veloso released Joia in 1975, just before he came back to Brazil after the UK exile. I had the original vinyl issue of this masterpiece, exactly how it is at the second picture, just the birds. The cover portraying Caetano Veloso nude with his wife and son — the first one — was censored, being back further on a CD reissue. I was wondering today how and when I miss my original vinyl. Anyway, this is one of those albums that you will need several times before getting around it and the surprise will never cease. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Joia (1975), for Philips. Forgive me, it is very hard to review something that you like very much. Joia is quite different from anything you heard before from Caetano discography, everything is reduced, some tracks have only violao accompaniment and others have only voices. Quarteto em Cy is a special guest on track 02 – Gua and personnel features Gilberto Gil, Tutty Moreno, Pena Froes, Altamiro Carrilho, among others. I urge Loronixers to send feedback on this release, one of the records that I like most. Tracks include:


Caetano Veloso

Gilberto Gil
Perinho Albuquerque, Djalma Correia, Eneas Costa, Bira da Silva, Cream Crackers

Caetano Veloso – Caetano Veloso (1971)

This is the natural, although not scheduled, continuation to yesterday’s Gilberto Gil album. Our friend Dianod just left a comment on Gilberto Gil’s album asking for more Tropicalia albums and MPB albums from the 70’s. I would love to make them once in a while, but these albums are still available commercially, being the last Gilberto Gil and now Caetano Veloso as the exceptions.

First thing, I’m a great fan of Caetano Veloso and I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to release one of his solo albums at Loronix. I’m glad this day has come, this is not Caetano’s masterpiece, but it is a very important album for Caetano’s career from a historical standpoint. Recorded in England, Caetano really demonstrate his feelings, starting by this fantastic cover artwork where Caetano shows his soul, the sadness of being away from home, expelled by the authorities in 1969.

This is Caetano Veloso – Caetano Veloso (1971), for Philips, also known as “A Little More Blue” or “London, London” album. Caetano Veloso makes quite a “departure” from the things of Brazil, delivering English lyrics in all songs, being the last “Asa Branca” the only exception. My highlights are from 01 – A Little More Blue, 03 – Maria Bethania and 04 – If You Hold a Stone. Anyway, the album is solid from the start to end and has that not easy blend of sadness and beauty. Let’s feedback this release as Loronixers did in the last Gilberto Gil LP. Tracks include:

01 – A Litte More Blue (Caetano Veloso)
02 – London London (Caetano Veloso)
03 – Maria Bethânia (Caetano Veloso)
04 – If You Hold a Stone (Caetano Veloso)
05 – Shoot Me Dead (Caetano Veloso)
06 – In The Hot Sun Of a Christmas Day (Caetano Veloso / Gilberto Gil)
07 – Asa Branca (Luis Gonzaga / Humberto Teixeira)

PS.: with the selection bellow, you can’t go wrong and also helps Loronix!!


Esse disco pode ser buscado no 300 Discos. Não sei a que seleção o Zeca se referia na mensagem …

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Astud Gilberto called my attention to something that I’m looking for several months, the whole concert of Joao Gilberto and Caetano Veloso recorded in Argentina and released on a DVD never released in Brazil. Just to tease Loronixers, I’m making available this excerpt, which is all I have from this concert, Joao Gilberto and Caetano Veloso performing Garota de Ipanema.
Hope uEnjoy!
