Gente, hoje sou feliz pa’caramba. O sorte que eu tenho, não é molhe não.
Olhe o que achei, um pedaço de ouro que te vai fazer doido. Abaixe rapido.
Look what I found today. On my never ending search for records I went to
a town I don’t visit frequently and got real lucky. The score is so nice I
hardly know where to start. I found some samba albums on the OKeh label,
a branch of CBS, of which the first post. Three albums on the
Romanian ‘Electrecord’ label, some Discos Fuentes from Colombia, some great
LP’s on Syliphone, Eddy’Son, just super and you can share that luck with me.
Tell me what to post next, and most wanted goes first.
There’s also some Choc Stars, Fuji with a female singer called Salawa Abeni,
Docteur Nico, Jonah Moyo and Pamelo Mounk’a. Coupé Cloué or Lisandro Meza.
Now about this album, when I saw Zuzuca between those LP’s I had a shiver
going down my spine. An album like this doesn’t show up every day and I realised
immediately, we’ve got something special here. OKeh stands for topnotch samba
and I didn’t need more then one listen to know I struck gold. This is one of
the best samba LP’s I have ever heard. No less then 14 tracks, one
even better than the other. The pile of OKeh’s counts one other Zuzuca
and 4 samba collectors, plain fantastic !
Vamos a Sambar a noite inteira !
