Criolo Doido – Lar Doce Lar
Copacabana 1985

Criolo Doido, voorkant

Vraag je mij wat het verschil is tussen Samba en Pagode
dan kan ik je dat niet uitleggen. Zo rond 1980 begint de samba
enigszins anders te klinken. De Braziliaan kan je precies vertellen
hoe het zit, de samba was veel sneller. Persoonlijk dacht ik juist
andersom. Als jij het weet mag je het ons uitleggen. De plaat van
Criolo Doido zou ik meer als Pagode klassificeren hoewel die in het
begin weer meer Samba is dan later. Pffff.. het duizelt me.
Luister zelf en trek je conclusie..

If you ask me what’s the difference between Samba and Pagode,
I really can’t explain. Around 1980 the samba starts to sound a little
different then before. A Brazillian can explain you exactly, Samba was
much faster. Personnaly I thought just the other way around. If you
know it, please enlighten us. This album by Criolo Doido I would
classify more as Pagode although the beginning is more Samba-like.
Pfff.. it makes me dizzy, listen and make up your own mind..

Re-PostZeca Pagodinho – Zeca Pagodinho,RGE 1986

Zeca Pagodinho

I received a couple of messages telling the link of this LP
was dead. I re-uploaded it and decided to re-post. One of
my first encounters with samba was by that great collector
that David Byrne launched on his Luaka Bop release for
Virgin Records. It’s from 1989 and called ‘O Samba’.
The cd contains the great ‘S.P.C.’, which came from Zeca
Pagodinho’s debut LP, the very one we have right here.
In the mean time Zeca grew out to be possibly the most
popular Samba and Pagode interpreter of today. Get this,
it’s still one of his best works.

tracks;

1 S.P.C.
2 Coraçao em desalinho
3 Jogo de caipira
4 Se eu for falar de tristeza
5 Quando eu contar
6 Cheiro de saudade
7 Pout-Pourri de Partido Alto
8 Casal sem vergonha
9 Quintal do céu
10 Cidade do pé junto
11 Judia de mim
12 Brincadeira tem hora

Bezerra da Silva – Violência gera violência,RCA Victor 1988

One of my all time heroes in samba is Bezerra da Silva.
Through the use of a popular samba rhythm called ‘pagode’, Bezerra
da Silva’s ‘Violência gera violência’ ( violence generates violence )
expresses demand for political and social justice. In the voice of public
figures such as a police inspector, a government bureaucrat and a garbage
collector, Bezerra captures and translates the popular mood on a variety
of themes: elections, religion and drugdealers are a few of these.
The song ‘Raiva de tudo’ ( rage of everything ): I see human justice/
selling our conscience/ absolving the rich and blaming the poor’ is a good
example of Bezerra da Silva’s peculiar combination of humor and political
protest. ‘Filho da mãe solteira’ ( son of a single mother ) and ‘Candidato
Caó Caó are other interesting songs on this LP which displays Bezerra’s
always great taste in samba. One of his older albums you’ll find here .
In our samba section, below left, we’ve got plenty related material.

tracks;

1 Candidato caó caó
2 Feitiço da tião
3 Vida de operário

6 Transação de malandro
7 Violência gera violência
8 Raiva de tudo

Neguinho da Beija-Flor – Ofício de Puxador, CBS 1985

This morning I got a strange surprise. The Blogger Team sent me a mail
I violated other people’s copyright by posting a reggae compilation
on my paralel page. When I went there to remove it ( which I always do )
I found out it was already removed. I didn’t know and still don’t if
this is a usual thing to happen. Have any of you collegue bloggers
ever experienced this before ? Tell me about it.

Neguinho da Beija-Flor comes in with this 1985 samba album.
Assuming it is here to stay, I can tell you it is a nice
and kind of traditional album. With the participation of
a group of experienced musicians like Wilson das Neves’ rhythm
section and many others. Powerfull and smooth samba with
the strong voice of Neguinho da Beija-Flor.

tracks;

1 Ofício de puxador
2 Dinheiro do pis
3 Bem melhor que você
4 Sem batismo e sem Adeus
5 Se liga doutor
6 A Deusa da passarela
7 Bom dia, melhores dias virão
8 Fim de nós
9 O homem do colarinho branco
10 Angela
11 Problema social
