St. Julian Samba Showdown 13 by J Thyme '08 - 320 kbps - 174 mb

I'll ask you to consider the rarity of the material that I have to work with. The 70's is a "Finite" era! Let's look at these selections instead as an experiment in continuity. I'll be truthful here by saying that I didn't think I could make another volume. With "Spirit" all things are possible. Thank you "Great Spirit" for working through me. I hope you enjoy this 13th installment of the series. Also, the intention of this series is not a "DANCE MIX", but a very nice look at some key albums of the 70's MPB/Samba scene. An experiment in continuity. OK?

P.S. There's a name for people who like this series...Brasil Nuts!
This volume was made possible through listener feedback. Thank you Arnaud for your "Vision".
Also, they say 13 is "unlucky". I'd say this one is a "Lucky 13". The chance of 24 of these gems lined up in a row is "Pure Luck".


  1. I'm SO HAPPY you're back! Thank you!!!

  2. Thank you. I always love your compilations.

  3. Lovely, as usual... your selections are fantastic and flow together very nicely.

    Wasn't criticizing with my 'funkier please' comment... these are beautiful samba collections and just right as is.

    BUT, the mind reels at the rare gems someone like you might put out there from the deeper funk/disco stuff coming out of Brasil in the mid/late 70s. Could be fun...

  4. yes man! welcome back. i've been spreading brazil's musical vibes amongst my friends and coworkers for some time now, but your blog helped take things to a whole new level. as for the samba showdowns, i have listened to all of them, but have a friend who has not only listened to them all but created his own best of the best of playlist. keep it up!
