Limited vinyl LP repressing of Sidney Miller's lost classic Linguas de Fogo. Originally released in 1974, Miller's third album is one of the best Brazilian records of it's time. A seamless mesh of Brazilian pop, psychedelia and Bossa Nova, Linguas de Fogo could almost be mistaken as Tropicalia-if Miller hadn't distanced himself from the genre. This album is very deserving of that tag of 'lost masterpiece' that gets thrown around a little too freely these days. Miller first received notice in 1967 when Nara Leão recorded five of his songs. While his songs were recorded by Veloso, Leão, Quarteto em Cy, MPB-4, Alaíde Costa and Gal Costa, Miller released only two more albums in his lifetime, Linguas de Fogo being his last. That he did not receive the acclaim his peers did was not due to his lack of talent. Miller was incredibly shy; he loathed to take the stage and masked his shyness with drugs and drink. He passed away young, at age 30 in 1980. How he died is disputed. Though Linguas de Fogo is highly regarded among diehard Brazilain music fanatics and the original vinyl pressing is much coveted, Miller has been a secret pleasure yet undiscovered by the general public. However, recently he has been rediscovered by a new crop of Brazilian artists, and hopefully this release will further push interest in his music.
