Beth Carvalho - Andança [1969 Odeon] 256 kbps - 58 mb

I was quite surprised to not find this LP up on Loronix. I do not have the verso on this album cover, but I can report that it is a very nice slice of late 60's MPB. Her voice is beautiful & the song selections & production are just so enjoyable. This is a nice look at this Samba queen in a more jazz-pop setting before she would emerge into a more Samba oriented singer in the 70's. I really enjoy this session & find her to be in the same territory as Nara Leao or early Joyce in many ways. A sweet debut with many really amazing tracks. Very nice!

P.S. Perhaps Loronix will grace us with a higher quality rip? We'll see?

Dóris Monteiro - Dóris [1971 Odeon] 320 kbps - 77 mb

This is my favorite female voice in Brasil. I adore Dóris & so do the song-writers & producers over at Odeon. They roll out the red carpet for her on this set. A totally winning session and Dóris really knows how to sell a song. A perfect 30 minute recording! Enjoy!
