Camarão – Retrato de um Forró
Passarela 1974


Goeiemorgen groevers, ik was even zes dagen op pad, vandaar
de mediastilte. Crate digging in Portugal op zoek naar bijzondere
platen uit Brazilië, Angola en Kaap verdië. Vandaag weer thuis met
diverse mooie platen. Om te beginnen deze tamelijk speciale forró
elpee. Hij gaat online voor zo’n 85 tot 100 eurootjes. Ik heb deze
slechts even te leen om hem voor jou te kunnen plaatsen hier op
de GG. Helaas heeft hij wel enkele tikjes en kraakjes, luister..

Good morning groovers, We had us a small six day break because
I was crate digging in Portugal. Goal of the mission was to find some
special records from Brazil, Angola and Cabo Verde. Today we’re back
home with various nice elpees. To begin with this quite special Forró
album by Camarão. Online it goes for some 85 to 100 euro’s. I just lent
this copy to be able to post it for you. Unfortunately it has a few pops
and crackles, still it’s worth at least a couple of spins..

Jackson do Pandeiro – O Cabra da Peste
Warner Music

Jackson do Pandeiro, front

This morning I wanted to rip an album by Jackson do Pandeiro
and only when halfway I realised it was the wrong slice of vinyl
inside. What a shame, time spoiled but not to worry, I decided
to rip a cd with another famous album by Jackson. O Cabra da
peste is originally from 1966 but the cd release is from 2001.
Eleven forró songs you’ll like almost for sure,
give’m a go and enjoy listening..

09 – Alegria do vaqueiro
10 – Forró do biá
11 – Papai vai de trem


São João Alegre ! – Various Artists
Philips 1963

São João Alegre, front

Maybe it is bacause of Forró em Vinyl, that site has so much forró
to offer that I neglected the genre. Only three albums over the past
seven years, about time to post some. For those who don’t know,
forró is from Brazils north eastern regions, always accompanied
by accordeons, ( or almost always ) and very happy. Today’s
album is a collector that contains songs by various popular
artists from the era, Jackson do Pandeiro is the most
famous but there’s Zé Calixto and others that bring
all short and catchy songs. I like’m a lot..
Get & spread ..

2 Jararaca & Ratinho – Viva são joão
3 Gabriel e seu Violino – Saltitando com a rabeca

In the following video we see Zé Calixto and others explaining
the difference between a normal accordeon and the ‘sanfona de oito baixos’,
( sanfona with eight basses ) sorry, no subtitles..

and one about the Brazillian sanfona..

22 Tracks about Football – Various Artists

22 tracks about footbal

Speaking of football, or soccer, whatever you prefer, I decided
to make a collector about it. It begins with a track from a cd
full of 78’s collected by John Peel’s wife. Nice old song, in the
middle we have two African songs, one Colombian and another
oldie with the Marx Brothers. On no.13 we have a track sung by
no one less than Pelé, with Sergio Mendes and on 20 a quite bad
Dutch caranaval song by our own Johan Cruyff, you wont believe
your ears. Most songs are Brazillian and about the famous Rio-club
Flamengo or Pelé, get it & spread it…

Benedito Nunes, Musicolor 1972

Benedito Nunes is from Bahia, but he moved to Rio de Janeiro
to record his music. Probably that’s why his forró has a bit of
a samba sound. I kinda like those chorus parts and guitar walks.
Unfortunately the needle jumps one time during track #1, but I
think it’s still worth a spin.

2 Pra fazer bilú-bilú
3 Quando esse cabra morrer
4 Ou casa ou morre
5 Namoro escondido
6 Ai, Tertulina
7 Pensao da Rua Auróra
8 Que felicidade
9 Cabra mentiroso
10 Caititu enjoado
11 Vou fazer sucesso
12 Adeus gereré


Nazaré Pereira – Amazônia, Cezame 1979

Nazaré Pereira, front, cd size

Forró is music from Brazil’s North-East, a very pleasant style
that makes you feel at home right away. Accordeons always
seem to give me that warm kind of feeling you have with
friends and family. Anyway, this is Nazaré Pereira, a singer
with a very nice round voice. And ‘Amazônia’ an album, perfect
for a quiet sunday afternoon. By the way, if you like Forró,
take a look at ‘Forró em Vinil’ a very nice page you find
in my list of favourites at the side-bar. Listen.


1 Riacho do navio
2 Baia veia Baia
3 Xapuri do Amazônas
4 Sodade meu bem, sodade
5 Flecha de fogo
6 O Baiao em Paris
7 O que vier eu traço
8 Forró no escuro
9 Nuvens que passam
10 Kalu
11 Boi bumba


P.S. there seems to be something wrong at ‘Forró en Vinil’, sorry.
