BRAZILIAN DISCO BOOGIE SOUNDS 1978-1982: SELECTED Vinyl Record
Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds is a compilation that brings together nine of the most important and obscure hits of the Brazilian Funk-Boogie-Disco scene during the years of 1978 to 1982. Junior Santos has been a carioca drummer since he was 15 years old and is today a respected vinyl collector and music researcher. More than anything, he is carried on by the love of Brazilian music, which has never been forgotten. Favorite Recordings' initiative of seeking a unique project with Brazilian music spurred Junior to dig into old record companies' files and bring out pearls from what he sees as the end of the Samba Rock period. At that time, musicians and arrangers such as Lincoln Olivetti, Robson Jorge, and Oberdan Magalhaes, along with Banda Black Rio, were responsible for the new music scene. They had dominated the studios with sophisticated and original arrangements that have forever transformed Brazilian musical perspective. This music, at that point, had gained a new style and great world respect that has remained up to contemporary times. Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds pays tribute to this great era, coming out in a deluxe vinyl edition with an old school tip on jacket and innersleeve, including notes and original artwork.
