Happy Birthday to me and you too, since you get the same present as me. I'm happy with it and I hope you are too? I adore Música Popular Brasileira. In this volume I pay a little extra attention to the style called Forró. I really start to really fall in love with this country style that filters it's way into the musical landscape of the Brasilian sound. There are certain sounds that I associate with this style. The acoustic guitars, the accordians and the triangle.
All I can say about this volume for now is, that when you love something it does love you back.
I feel all the love I give to this series come back to me instantly! Let's see if you feel that love too. Thank you to all of you out there who have followed me this far. You're real bunch of Sambistas & Forró-heads. As always, ENJOY!

P.S. I really want to highlight that track 3 by Burnier & Cartier. This is one of the finest examples of Brasilian Basswork. Listen to the umph on the Bass. Up front for a supporting instrument. Not just upfront, but beautifully recorded electric bass. Lovely pluckings from this player and masterfully recorded by the fucking genius's over at RCA Victor. This is that allusive "11" that they go on about in "This Is Spinal Tap". After hearing this track, this is way I want to hear the bass recorded! BOLD! VIGOROUS! LIVELY! BASS TEMPO!
One last tally for all 28 volumes = 676 tracks. Those of you who have listened thus far have the appetite of a scholar. I know, I'm one.
