Hands down my favorite album by this amazing singer.  I like the switch to the Philips label.  The production and song choices are simply amazing.  Standout tracks for me are, "Irmãos De Sol" with it's heavenly vocal arrangement and Wilson's voice just soars to the heavens on this one.  The angels sing!
"Feitio De Oracao" with it's jazzy stylings and smooth delivery from Wilson's suave voice.  Wonderful arrangement!  "Paz e Gloria Nas Alturas",  lovely buildup and very nice choral payoff and funky, funky, funky finish.   "Expresso 2222" retells Gilberto Gil's composition and polishes it up with very fleshed production and outstanding choral backing.  Incredible recording on every level.  A real treat for fans of MPB of this era.  Enjoy!

Well friends, I present my end of Summer post. With these last weeks of Summer here's volume 18 of the Saint Julian Samba Showdown series. If you've not heard the other 17 volumes of this series, then I don't think that this is best place to start. Please try earlier issues of this compilation series first. For those of you who do like the sound of Brasil in the 70's & are ready to continue on with this carnival celebration, then by all means jump aboard. Goodbye Summer & hello to Autumn. If you find yourself missing the warm days of Summer then just throw this on. Enjoy!
