Nadinho Da Ilha - Cabeça Feita [1976 EMI Odeon] 224 kbps - 62 mb

First I want to say a big thank you to Toque Musical for introducing me to this amazing EMI Odeon session. The second person to thank would have to be Charles Gavin for re-mastering this recording & giving it a second life. High praise must go to the EMI Odeon studios for raising the quality even higher on the technique of how to record this glorious Samba form. Friends of this page please listen closely to the high art of the recording excellence that abounds in Brasil in the 70's. Concepts like mic-ing, tape saturation, compression & good ol' mono mixing for a brilliantly sculpted sound-space. Outstanding Samba here recorded with such clarity to the compositions & artistry of its musicians. Don't miss this. With headphones!

P.S. This record is "Off The Hook, Hooked Up". No lie. I've been drawing from this masterwork since volume 12 of the Samba Showdowns. Lucky is the DJ with this record on his/her side.


  1. You didn´t promise too much. Everybody should listen to it. Thanks a lot!

  2. yeah a friend of mine in São Paulo has this and I really liked it.. I passed up the chance to buy a copy and instead made a rip of hers, which I promptly lost track of. And, like too many of the Odeon represses, its already gone "fora do católogo". I am sure it turns up now and then but I have yet to correct my mistake. Thanks for this!

  3. Thank you Jörn & Flabbergast. Flabbergast, better at least any rip then none.

  4. i picked up a compacto by Nadinho recently with a great track on called "A Nega Iles" that's great. I'll add it to the list of records i should rip for you J Thyme.

  5. Here is the rip for that Nadinho compacto:


    I'll work on the Brazilian Singers LP and a few more bits for you whenever i can J Thyme.

  6. Thank you DJ Mario. I look forward to the Brazilian Singers. Is there a playlist for the Nadinho CD and a cover?
