Brazil 45, number 50:
A. Celia – Na Boca do Sol / AA. A Hora e Essa
Two tracks from Celia’s awesome, sought after, second self-titled LP from 1972.
‘Na Boca Do Sol’ was 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.
‘A Hora é Essa’ is the first track from the LP, a brilliant samba-funk workout, with strings and piano. Also originally released as a 7” in 1972 on Continental, which is very difficult to get hold of now.
