St. Julian Samba Showdown 33 by J Thyme '12 - 320 kbps - 180 mb

Hey Samba/MPB fans.  Back with yet another volume of the Saint Julian Samba Showdown series.  I open with two excellent compositions by the team of Antonio Carlos & Jocafi.  Mercado Modêlo & Minhas Razoes really show off their songwriting skills to very good effect.  God bless Antonio Carlos & Jocafi!!!
A quick thank you to Supernut Mara Records for the use of track 4 - "Recado" by Cravo E Canela.
Wow, here's the tally of all 33 volumes...drumroll please...800 songs!  Did we just listen to 800 tracks?  I guess we did.  Hope you enjoy & if I can find another 24 tracks that sound good to my ear, I'll be back.

    1. J Thyme, I truly appreciate all the effort you have put into this blog. I really love this music. Unfortunately I have been not able to access the majority of the DL links because they have either been expired or denied. Is there anyway I could get ahold of this wonderful music? So far i have the first 7 samba showdowns, 33 and a few in between. Thank you so much for the work you put in!

  9. J Thyme, I apologize posting as anonymous but I think I speak for everyone in that we are very grateful of the time you put into to this blog. I really appreciate the music you have introduced me to. However, in trying to access the majority of the links, I've noticed that most (nearly all) the links are either unavailable, expired, or denied. Is there anything you can do about this. I'm afraid I'll never get to hear the rest of these wonderful mixes you put together. Please help and thank you so much!!!
