Mr Bongo continue to drop killer Brazilian 45’s. They’re at number 50 in the series and this time the quality grooves come courtesy of Celia with two awesome, sought after and tracks from her second self-titled LP from 1972. On one side is “Na Boca Do Sol” a song written and arranged by Arthur Verocai and Vitor Martins, the original of which appeared on Verocai’s self-titled LP. Fuzz guitar, drums, strings and Celias vocal combine to create an epic. On the flip side “A Hora é Essa is the first track from the LP, a brilliant samba-funk workout, with strings and piano. Dont sleep, grab a copy here.
Props Mr Bongo.
