St. Julian Samba Showdown 27 by J Thyme (2011) 320 kbps - 198 mb (reup)




This is my hello to Spring post. Spring has come a few days earlier here, so I'm sharing my latest installment of the Samba Showdown series. I hope you fans of MPB enjoy this. If I can find another 24 tracks that sound good, then I'll be back. Until then, enjoy this tour through 70's Brasil. Happy Spring!
My favorite track here, in terms of fidelity, is the Elton Medeiros track "Vazio". I marvel at the amazing tape saturation, compression and warmth of the composition & the expert handling of material. When this sits next to another track, the jump in fidelity is quite noticeable!

Also, I could compare this series to "raiding the candystore". All 27 volumes of this series equals 651 tracks and that's a lot of gathered candy.
