Eumir Deodato - Skyscrapers (1973)

This album will cross Christmas celebration until the next Loronix update in December 26th and I have to admit it was a very difficult choice among several picks I had available. I think were will be in really good company with this classic Eumir Deodato album that is unexplainably out of print. Skycrapers was released just after Prelude and Eumir Deodato big hit Also Sprach Zarathustra and this is what makes this album really amazing. Let's see.

This is Eumir Deodato - Skyscrapers (1973), first issue by CTI and released as Os Catedraticos 73 for Equipe in Brazil. Eumir Deodato came to Brazil to record this album in July 1972, and I think this decision was important to bring to this session the original Os Catedraticos members, which includes Durval Ferreira, Sergio Barroso and others. Eumir Deodato did it and could also bring several other great musicians, including Helcio Milito and Bebeto from Tamba Trio, Orlandivo, Ze Menezes and Mamao from Azimuth. This is one of the Eumir Deodato LPs that I like most and I hope you have a lot of fun with Skyscrapers as I did today. I also wish a very nice Christmas to everybody. Tracks include:


Eumir Deodato

Another Deodato's masterpiece!
Special attention for Soccer Game.
Does anyone know which building is on the back cover?
