Brazil 45, number 31:
A. Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma - O Bofe / AA. Brasil Ritmo - Cho Chua
‘O Bofe’ is the title track from the soundtrack to a Brazilian soap opera of the same name, released on Som Livre in 1972. All music on the soundtrack was written by brothers Roberto and Erasmo Carlos. Catchy whistles and MPB vocals over a samba rock groove. Previously unreleased on 7”.
'Cho Chua' is a capoeira-samba groover by Brasil Ritmo, who we know very little about… This track is taken from a 1972 Som Livre LP, which is difficult to find.
