Brazil 45, number 38:
A. Taigura – Aquarela De Um Paid Na Lua / AA. Marisa Rossi – Deixa Eu Te Amar
'Aquarela De Um País Na Lua' is an extremely unique, psychedelic uptempo Brazilian jazz fusion number. Flutes, piano and vocal harmonies drift in and out of the mix, creating a lush soundscape. Taiguara was a prolific and hugely successful singer and songwriter - primarily within pop/MPB - whose career spanned nine albums in the late 60’s and 70’s. He is also thought to be one of the most censored Brazilian artists and was exiled to London in the 1970’s by the Brazilian dictatorship. ‘Aquarela’ is taken from his most experimental album ‘Imyra, Tayra, Ipy’ originally released in 1976 on Odeon.
'Deixa Eu Te Amar' is a very dope uptempo psychedelic funk/soul number, highly sought after, originally released on Copaconana 7” in 1970. Marisa, and the backing track, sound very much like the wonderful ‘Doris’ whose album ‘Did You Give The World Some Love Today Baby?’ we have previously reissued. Rossi recorded an album arranged by the legendary Arthur Verocai.
