Hey everybody & hope all are enjoying the spring season. Well, here I am again with another volume of the St. Julian Samba Showdown series. This very special post goes out to my buddy in Paris, Arnaud. Happy birthday Arnaud. I start this volume with a favorite artist of Arnaud & myself, Dóris Monteiro. Here is a great example of the the Samba song "Maita" written by Giovana from her LP "Qem Tem Carinho Me Leva" from 1975 performed here in a yummy MPB production by Dóris. This post also goes out to Aline. Thank you for your support Aline. I'm glad some people are as in love with this magnificent form as I am. Let's see if the fans of this series find this installment of the Samba Showdown up to the standard of the genre? To the return of the light which Spring always is! Let's Samba.

P.S. I barely managed to squeeze by with a 70 minute CD rip of this. It was 45 seconds over 70 minutes, but will burn as a CD. For those who still use CD's?
My goal here with this series is to reveal all tracks & the LP's that they come from & completely show these albums off by dipping back to key albums & highlighting them in a round-up. I seek a sense of continuity from volume to volume. As I've said before, that I consider this a type of reporting. I'm just here to take a good focused look at the 70's in Brasil.
Also, the original version of "Maita" by Giovana can be found on volume 4 of the Showdown series.
