Product Details

LP version. 180 gram vinyl; Includes obi strip. Far Out Recordings present a reissue of Piri's Voces Querem Mate?, originally released in 1970. Over the course of the '60s, Roberto Quartin released more than 20 albums in Brazil on his label Forma, by artists including the likes of Eumir Deodato and Quateto Em Cy. Selling the rights of Forma to Polygram in 1969, Quartin struck out for pastures new at the dawn of the 1970s with the launch of his self-titled label. Significant works and high-water marks for Brazilian music overall followed in that decade's first year, with Victor Assis Brasil's 1970 album Toca (FARO 195LP), Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Jose Mauro's 1970 album Obnoxius (FARO 191CD/LP). These singular gems in Brazilian music, difficult to categorize yet compellingly haunting, have for too long gone unheard. The third release in the series - following the aforementioned albums by Jose Mauro and Victor Assis Brasil - is Piri's Vocês Querem Mate?, a highly sought after jewel of twisted psychedelic MPB. Vocês Querem Mate?, the first recording by the relatively unknown singer songwriter Piry Reis, is dreamy and ethereal, groovy Brazilian psych-folk at it's finest. Reis has collaborated with greats like Egberto Gismonti and Robertinho Silva, and had his music performed by Celia, Charlie Haden, and Jan Garbarek. His four solo albums are all rare as hens' teeth and have been known to fetch a hefty bounty, but none higher than his debut, and for good reason. Instantly captivating from it's first second, the lone trembling piano in "Reza Breva" builds a tremendous tension before bursting into the joyously funky tropicalista folk jam that keeps up throughout the album. Flying the Brazilian freak flag high are percussion kings Juquina and Wilson Das Neves, along with Paulinho Jobim and Danilo Caymmi on flutes. It's a dazzling, lucid piece of escapism, as necessary today as it was when released into the tumultuous political climate of 1970s Brazil. Tracks like "As Incríveis Peripécias de Danilo" and "Cupído Esculpido" are tripped out MPB at it's most decadent, and more sombre moments like "Sombra Morta" and closer "Chão Vermelho" offer shadier melancholic contrasts. Without a doubt the most free-spirited release in the Quartin catalog, Voces Querem Mate? is a forgotten treasure of Brazilian music of the highest order. Remastered from the original 2" tapes.
