Alcione - A Voz do Samba [1975 Philips] 256 kbps - 70 mb (Reup)


An excellent example of mid 70's Samba at it's very best. This very first album by Alcione catches the Samba movement in full swing. There is not one dull moment on this masterpiece. I could listen to this one twice in row it's that good. Very fleshed out song writing, production & performance by all involved. The very spirit of carnival oozes from every number. Don't miss this. Simply amazing!

File Under: Samba

P.S. Some records are just more joy-filled then others. This is one such item!
