João Nogueira- Vem Que Tem [1975 EMI Odeon] 320 kbps - 84 mb


Since I love João Nogueira & posted the LP just before this one, then I'll add this as well. These very first LP's by him for EMI Odeon are very fleshed-out Samba recordings. EMI Odeon gives this artist all of the polish that his artistry deserves. This is the 2003 Re-master and sounds great. For fans of this artist.

File Under: Samba

P.S. I put these EMI Odeons together so we can get fix on that studio sound. Crisp!
Also, notice the box of matches in João's hand. A favorite instrument of the sambistas. Tap, tap.

  1. This is an excellent record, which I know from one of your earlier posts. Very recommended. Thanks for the quality update. Check out his "Boca do Povo"-LP from 1980!

  3. early João Nogueira is the shiznit! Can you tell me who remastered this? I have this one on a 2 em 1 with "E lá vou eu" from the 2003 EMI series. I have complained elsewhere about what sounds like the assembly-line mastering they did on those 2-fers (especially noticeable on the Paulinho da Viola titles). You can't beat the price, and I prefer them to any of the similarly-budget-priced 'best of' collections, but its a shame about the mastering.

  4. Flabbergast, This is that issue, but it's that or someone's LP. Let's see if Abracadabra LP's do Brasil will grant us a rip. I don't think the mastering is that bad.

  5. Jörn, thank you for the tip on "Boca do Povo". Will listen to it right now. It takes a while for these LP's to sink in. I've been chewing on these 1974 & 75 João Nogueira's for the past few years & it takes quite a few spins before they start to open up. As you can see by the recent Samba Showdowns I've been mining that 1974 set.

  6. sorry, no offense intended re: my nit-pickiness.. I am really only talking about the Paulinho da Viola for which I have a point of comparison (e.g. the Abbey Road remasters) and where I noticed the EMI pressing gives me listening fatique. And I certainly don't mean to discourage anyone from grabbing this, both of these albums are great!!

  7. Flabbergast, I'm sure as we speak someone will be ripping this from their LP. All good things come to those who throw temper tantrums...ha, ha.

  8. Justin, to my ears this album sounds awfully shrill. Maybe the reason is what you and Flabbergast write about, lousy mastering. Great music, though. Nogueira has a pleasant voice.
    I've been listening to Candeia lately (Axé and Samba de Roda). Maybe there is something wrong with my ears, because I hear that he sings quite often off-key. Since you know more about Brazilian music than I do, is this the case and deliberate?

  9. I've heard that it is normal in Brasilian music to have off-key tunings. Just as in Jazz atonality is used as occasional spice.
