Dorival Caymmi - Setenta Anos (1984) also known as Caymmi in Bahia

Hello, Good Night! Blame it on zecalouro. This record was sent by a Loronixer with no cover artwork and just a name: "Caymmi in Bahia". I took it as a compilation of Caymmi songs or one of those especial series with several albums from several artists, etc. I decided to take it for a hearing today and I got amazed with the music (I like Caymmi). With some searches, I could understand that this record is a Dorival Caymmi concert performed in 1979 with Dorival Caymmi accompanied only by his guitar. I can't remember the Loronixer who gave it to us. If he is still around, please send a message for the credits of this amazing contribution.

This is Dorival Caymmi - Sessenta Anos (1984), for Funarte, recorded live at Teatro Castro Alves, Salvador, Bahia, 1979, featuring Dorival Caymmi and his acoustic guitar, considered one of the greatest Dorival Caymmi records. A double LP with 70 minutes of music divided in seven blocks where Caymmi makes meddleys of his repertoire using on each block a given aspect of Bahia culture and his music. Recorded in 1979, this LP was only released in 1984 as part of the celebrations of Dorival Caymmi 70th anniversary. A rare item for Caymmi fans and a essential record on Caymmi discography. Tracks include:

01 - Bloco 1 - Postais da Bahia
02 - Bloco 2 - Das Mulheres
03 - Bloco 3 - Cenas da Bahia, Praias e Festas
04 - Bloco 4 - Historias e Lendas de Pescadores
05 - Bloco 5 - O Amor pelo Mar
06 - Bloco 6 - Cancoes de Amor
07 - Bloco 7 - Caymmi pede A Bencao
