Olivia Byington - Corra o Risco (1978)

I'm probably taking all Loronix friends by surprise with this release. Olivia Byington was never mentioned or requested before. So, get yourself ready for the debut LP of Olivia Byington - Corra o Risco (1978), for Continental.

Olivia is also well-know by the fans of the amazing Brazilian progressive rock scene from the 70's due her vocal participations with the band A Barca do Sol that revealed the renowned musician Jacques Morelenbaum. Corra o Risco is considered by some reviewers as one of a A Barca do Sol releases. This record has also the participation of John Neschling on track 10.

Corra o Risco is a self explanatory LP, an always nice Brazilian singer debut, accompanied by the symphonic progressive rock of a legendary band. This LP was first available at Acesso Raro and this material is probably from that first release. Thanks Acesso Raro, you are out of the business but still lives on our minds. Tracks include, sorry, do not miss AMG bio bellow:

This is one of my all-time favourite albums. Fabulous songs, really creative arrangements, great singing. Some of these songs also appeared on A Barca do Sol's first album, and it's interesting to compare the versions. Was this ever released as a CD?
Also, speaking of A Barca do sol, do you have their rare third album? I'd love to hear it.

Helio58,

Roman,

You are talking about the Pirata? I had this LP, unfortunately it is one of those who were lost on a last move.

But we can try again with a little help from our friends.

Cheers, zecalouro

Thanks, Helio, for the link to Pirata. It's a fine album, and it also has different versions of some of the songs on Olivia's album.

Nenhum local que encontrei tem links válidos, realmente seria possível um repost ou espelho?

Grato
