EU vinyl LP reissue of this rare soundtrack that was only ever issued in Brazil. La Garota de Ipnema ('The Girl from Ipanema') is now an internationally known Brazilian song that is generally credited as having been the 'official' launch of the Bossa Nova. It was written with music by Antonio Carlos Jobim and original Portuguese lyrics by Vinicius de Mor's. Later, English lyrics were by Norman Gimbel. It was first performed in 1962 by Brazilian singer Pery Ribeiro and Astrud Gilberto and Stan Getz two years later, whereupon it became an international hit. It is the second most recorded pop song after 'Yesterday'. The song was inspired by a local Carioca, Heloisa Pinto, a beautiful girl who 'each day walked to the sea' past the 'Veloso' bar-cafe frequented by musicians. The original title was 'Menina Que Passa' ('The Girl Who Passes By') in the seaside suburb of Rio de Janeiro of Ipanema, but later became 'The Girl from Ipanema'. We reissue the album - again on vinyl as a reminder and tribute to what an enormous influence Brazilian music had and indeed, still has on popular music today.
