Here we go on another Brazilian singer never made available to Loronixers. Simone started her career in the early 70’s and had a promising beginning as one of the greatest voices of Brazilian popular music at that time. She recorded her first and self-titled album in 1973, being very popular throughout the 70’s. When entering the 80’s, Simone positioned herself as a romantic singer and got international recognition. A friend who lives in my building sent this album a long time ago. I think she will be happy to see her favorite singer at Loronix.

This is Simone – Face a Face (1977), for Odeon, perhaps the most successful Simone album, featuring several hits that everybody knows in Brazil by heart, such as: Jura Secreta, O Que Sera, Comecaria Tudo Outra Vez, among others. Odeon label made available to Simone a constellation of Brazilian musicians and arrangers. If you never had the chance to hear Simone this is a great start, her voice is unique and this is a very nice album. Tracks include:
