Link original: Sivuca – Live at the Village Gate (1973)
Publicado em: Saturday, December 06, 2008 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! Wish I have much more energy tonight, because this is a special night and this is a really special post. This is the first of a probably endless series of album that will come to Loronix through a donation. Yes, I said a donation, and not a standard donation, but a complete collection, perhaps more than 700 records, spanning decades of Brazilian popular music.
The one responsible for this fantastic donation is a great friend. We have been together on on-line adventures since the 1980’s decade, a time that Internet was such like a dream and we had a lot of fun with BBSs. By the way, this friend reminds me CentroIn, which was really the best BBS in Rio de Janeiro (this is an easy hint to discover who is zeca!).
I said I’m tired and I’m really exhausted today. It is better and prudent to announce who made this donation later. By now, let’s stay with this suspense atmosphere and this great album never released before at Loronix and hard to believe that has gone out of print. Let’s see.
This is Sivuca – Live at the Village Gate (1973), for Vanguard, made available here with the Brazilian Copacabana issue. I would like to wait a couple of days to release this album in December 15th as a tribute to Sivuca’s passing in 2006, but I could not resist. This album was a missing piece in my collection and, of course, a missing piece at Loronix. Live at Village Gate was recorded at the homonymous Village Gate, a nightclub in New York City, and features Sivuca on his peak, backed by American musicians. I would like to send my best vibrations and wish a nice weekend to everybody. Tracks include:
(vocals, violao, accordion, piano, percussion)
01 – Adeus Maria Fulô (Sivuca / Humberto Teixeira)
02 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – It Might Have Been (Sivuca / D. Speropoles)
04 – Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso)
05 – Ain’t no Sunshine (B. Withers)
06 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – Coisa Nº 10 (Moacir Santos)
08 – Batucada (Sivuca)
