Hello! Good Night! Let’s start the day with a non-Brazilian artist singing Bossa Nova, a formula that seems to be very successful on earlier posts such like the last Sacha Distel LP, acclaimed by many Loronixers. Guess who provided this release to us? Easy, Caetano Rodrigues that just picked up what is considered one of the best albums of this singer.

This is Vikki Carr – Intimate Excitement (1967), for Liberty, never releases in CD and currently out of print. Vikki Carr, born in the US, started in the early 60’s being active until today, releasing more that 50 career recordings. She is recognized to bridge the cultures of the United States with Latin America, singing in two languages.

You will see how Vikk Carr manages her dual language singing on this LP, where she uses two languages even on the same song, mostly based on Bossa Nova standards. Tracks include:

01 – Laia Ladaia (Reza)
02 – Going out of My Head
03 – Toys
04 – Meditation (Meditacao)
05 – Pretty Butterfly (No Balanco do Jequibau)
06 – Mas que Nada
07 – Call Me
08 – Once
09 – The Constant Rain (Chove Chuva)
10 – Summer Samba (Samba de Verao)
11 – Insensatez
12 – Manha de Carnaval
13 – Now I Know the Felling


Este disco estava na categoria  com defeito, pois a faixa 09 – The Constant Rain (Chove Chuva) não estava presente no arquivo. Graças à Eliane, que  me enviou a faixa,  e ao Fulano Sicrano, ele pode ser buscado completo no Um que Tenha.

Existe uma outra versão da capa, que segue abaixo:
