Os Borges - Os Borges (1980)

Hello, good evening! Let’s close this great week with a required repost, first made available in January 2007, having a successful reception by the community and now being updated with a new transfer taken from my own vinyl, including also hi-res scans and the new FLAC option. Let’s see.

This is Os Borges – Os Borges (1980), for Odeon, featuring the Borges family and some very special guests. Os Borges are a musical family from Minas Gerais state, consisting of the brothers Nico Borges, Telo Borges, Marilton Borges, Márcio Borges, Yê Borges, Lô Borges and Solange Borges, the father and mother Salomao Borges and Dona Maricota Borges. The very special guests are Toninho Horta, Elis Regina, Gonzaguinha, Milton Nascimento and Lucio Alves. The cover shows Os Borges room with instruments all around the floor with a picture of The White Album from The Beatles, strong influence to the Borges brothers and Clube da Esquina movement from Minas Gerais. By the way, if love the Clube da Esquina album with Milton Nascimento and Lo Borges, you should consider this one. Personnel listing was not made available by Odeon, but the session photos brings some musicians in the session, such like, Marcal, Nivaldo Ornellas, Cesar Camargo Mariano, Paulinho Carvalho, Helvius Vilela, Nana Vasconcellos, Guilherme Arantes, among others.

Zeca,

Lembrei-me de um show de Os Borges que assisti no auditório da GV... todos no palco estavam visivelmente bebaços! A família é boa de música e de copo.

Salve as esquinas de Minas e a música das Gerais! "Aqui se vê como é bom, viver livre"! A faixa "Carona" com Lô Borges e Gonazguinha é demais! Belíssimo disco.
