Sivuca - Vou Vida Afora (1982)

This night was very special and deserves to be closed with a special artist. Sivuca is a very special artist; he is part of a group of a few selected artists that everybody likes. Every Sivuca album I spin makes me feel better, saving those days that you are not in the mood of anything. Today is not the case, but as I said, it is a special day.

This is Sivuca - Vou Vida Afora (1982), for Copacabana, featuring the very special guest Quarteto em Cy on tracks 04 - Imaginacao and 07 - Arapua Fazendo Mel and Lucinha Lins on track 09 - Bailado, featuring arrangements by Ivan Lins. Such like the last Copacabana Sivuca album from 1979, Sivuca sings, which is something unique from my perspective. Personnel listing was not delivered by Copacabana, but Sivuca plays accordion in all tracks, including the instrumental tracks 05, 06 and 10. Tracks include:

01 - Forró da Bicharada (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
02 - Vou Vida Afora (Sivuca)
03 - Sonho de Neve (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 - Imaginação (Sivuca / Afonso Gadelha / Ana Maria Duveen) with Quarteto Em Cy
05 - Bate Tome Toca e Cai (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
06 - Coisas (Moacir Santos)
07 - Arapuã Fazendo Mel (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós) with Quarteto Em Cy
08 - Nunca Mais Eu Vi Esperança (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
09 - Bailado (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós) with Lucinha Lins
10 - Fim de Leilão (Julinho do Acordeom)

An album that even accordion haters would like. It's amazing how effective the synthesizer sounds next to the accordion. Very nice.
