Before making my comments on this surprising Flora Purim album, I would like to talk about the beautiful, immediate and solid response to our new dedicated server campaign. The power of the community created around Loronix cannot be measured, it is something that I never saw and surprises me every day. This makes me realize the importance of Loronix in disseminating the music from Brazil and the great responsibility that comes by leading and developing this place. Thank you for everything and I hope we will have a good start of week with Flora Purim. Let’s see.This is Flora Purim – Nothing Will Be As It Was… Tomorrow (1979), for Milestone, featuring Flora Purim performing a blend of Brazilian and International tunes, backed by a constellation of musicians, including Airto Moreira, the Fattoruso brothers, Wagner Tiso, Toninho Horta, Raulzinho, among many others. Nothing Will be as it Was is the album title and the second track, which a version of the well known Nada Sera como Antes (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos). Loronix Preview Center selection was not easy since we have solid tracks different from each other. I decided to stay with Angels, which is from now on one of zecalouro lifetime favorites. You will understand when hearing. Tracks include:

01 – You Love Me Only (P. Rushen)
02 – Nothing Will Be as It Was (Nada Será Como Antes) (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos / Vrs. Renne Vince)
03 – I’m Coming For Your Love (B. Miller / V. Hall / D. Miles)

Airto Moreira - Seeds on the Ground LP (1971)-BACK
This album is so great and so awaited by Loronixers that we will make something really different here, releasing both LP and CD versions. By the way, I have been discussing the value of Bonus Tracks on CD reissues with a friend and we came to a conclusion this tracks are not really useful and sometimes they even spoil the listening experience. Additionally, I think on most cases bonus tracks are some sort of studio leftovers and they were not included as they were not the artist will at that time. Anyway, terrific album and surprisingly out of print. Let’s see.This is Airto Moreira – Seeds on the Ground | The Natural Sound of Airto (1971), for Buddha Records, featuring a constellation of musicians, such as Hermeto Pascoal, Flora Purim, Dom Um Romao, Sivuca and others.

Flora Purim – Midnight Sun (1989)

Publicado em: Thursday, August 09, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I friend of mine made a question today that I could not answer promptly, he asked why Flora Purim does not have more albums at Loronix besides her debut album, which is Flora Purim – Flora e M.P.M. (1964). I think the reason is availability, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira moved to the US in the late 60’s, being there since them building their careers and most of Flora Purim albums are commercially available with a few exceptions, such like this one. Let’s see.

This is Flora Purim – Midnight Sun (1988), for Sigem/CID, originally issued in US as Flora Purim – The Midnight Sun (1988), for Venture/Virgin records. Cover artworks of both issues are completely different; track listing brings the same songs, arranged on a different order. I’m not the perfect parrot to speak about Flora Purim albums released in US, except technical info, made available bellow. I will the album with you, please leave your thoughts on comment section; I need education on Flora Purim. Tracks and personnel are given per track this time.
