St. Julian Samba Showdown 21 by J Thyme '09 - 320 kbps - 167 mb (Reup) 5/10

I had issues with the quality of a few tracks & the sequencing, so I re-present volume 21.
For fans of this page. I hope you enjoy.
P.S. This is created & shared in the spirit of fun. This is what I listen to & I'm glad that a few others seem to enjoy what I find to be listenable. If I can find another 24 tracks, then I'll be back.
Godbless the person to take on "Musica Popular Brasileira". It is one awesome songbook. I'm giving it my my best effort.

  1. Is this the remix? - Thanks a lot. Maybe Greg has another diamond in his LP-Case...? - Hope to read you SOON! - Parting...my foot!

  2. No Jörn not a remix. I offer this in place of the other volume 21. I feel that this flows a little better & is more in keeping with the rhythm of my style. I had a problem with the quality of some of the tracks & decided to repost.

  3. This is wonderful as always. Thanks for your usual quality. But track 16 seems to be quite murky. Is that one of your rips?

  4. This is the kind of problem I was having with the first up of volume 21. So many very rare LP's with good numbers, but quality issues on some tracks. Track 16 was one in question, but I let it slide because I like it.

  5. It's great that there are people who take compilations as seriously as you do.
    Just to understand you, do you mean that you are through posting albums??

  6. Goofy, The history of Brasilian music is online spanning over 2000 LP's if one has the time to download, sort & listen. The Samba Showdowns are an effort to highlight the accessible nature of Brasilian Popular Music. The main focus of this page are the compilations. After studying this culture the past 10 years, I could liken it to being at a music academy. The Showdowns are my thesis on MPB.

  7. as always, thanks!

    I am curious to compare the two versions as I quite liked the first version already. I keep a log of your whole series you know, to help with an overall picture of the artists, albums and years involved. also, to help determine which ones to track down on LP first, sometimes buying because of one personal fave track, but most often searching out LPs with the most 'J Thyme'-approved bangers-for-the-buck! (reliable experience-based trust:)
    of course I'm delighted when you pick further tracks from ones I already own - I think: "see, we were both right - this is one to have and cherish!" (Geraldo Filme is just one perfect example of this)

    by the way, another visionary compiler you've praised in the past is Toru Hashimoto of Café Après-Midi fame, who I think is a good parallel in terms of bar-setting, but while with his series I usually find sprinkled-gems, I'm enjoying your focus and whole journey. I predict you'll find enough great tracks for further showdowns: teach on Maestro!
