Happy full moon.
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.


  1. many thanks for another one of this fantastic compilation!

  2. thanks for another compilation!

  3. Happy belated birthday and thanks again for another installment. Nice to see you including Paulinho da Viola in this (I remember a time when you weren't too keen on him.) Incidentally, I've been prepping a vinyl rip of that Maria Crueza album, it's pretty nice.

  4. Flabergast, This is just not true about Paulinho da Viola. If you look closely at my showdowns you'll see quite a few Da Viola compositions. Actually, your last Paulinho da Viola LP is, in my opinion, his Masterpiece.
    I like the production on that LP. Be patient with me. I'm a gringo & it takes me a little time to bond with a record. Yeah, that Maria Crueza is RCA honey!

  5. you are correct, it's isn't true, and since I don't take drugs any more it must just be caused by my frequent insomnia. I honestly thought I remembered you saying something about the `A Voz de Morro` album that made me think you had criticisms of Paulinho`s actual *records* (his compositions, alas, are ubiquitous and everywhere and its nearly impossible not to like them). This whole line of rationale on my part since his albums are great examples of that clean recording, mixing and production that both of us like about 1970s samba. My apologies for appearing to be on crack..

  6. Not really a lot of criticisms of Paulinho or MPB on my page. Get some rest my friend and stop hitting that crack pipe.

  7. Hello friend!
    You certainly should know that I have made my blog a day dedicated to collections (always on Saturday). I am here to invite you to join this show. I would love you to participate by sending me to a musical selection made ​​by you. I'm sure you will make us a very good selection of music, after all, this is a requirement as you master. Feel free to choose what they want. His collection enters the Toque Musical in the week you send, ok?
    I await your response.

  8. Augusto. Obrigado por sua confiança em mim. Me dê alguns dias para sonhar um tema.
