Nelson Cavaquinho - Serie Documento (1972)

Hello, good evening! It was very silly of mine to keep this album for months without taking it for a hearing. I bought this one on those cheap bargains and I thought -- and probably the storeowner also -- it was a compilation of early Nelson Cavaquinho songs released by RCA Victor in the late 70's. I was wrong and I knew I was wrong this week when I took it for a spin and noticed that all tracks are from the same session. What a session by the way. This is the second Nelson Cavaquinho career LP at Loronix and it is also very, very, very good. Let's see.

This is Nelson Cavaquinho - Serie Documento (1972), for RCA Victor. This "Serie Documento" title is the root cause of the confusion. Anyway, Nelson Cavaquinho is self-explanatory and you should not skip this one. Sergio Cabral liner notes says something really correct, you should take this album and also Nelson Cavaquinho not as a singer with beautiful voice and easy songs, he is not for beginners, but Nelson sings with his soul, he puts passion and the outcome is really overwhelming. RCA Victor did not credit musicians and arrangers this time. Tracks include:

01 - Quando Eu Me Chamar Saudade (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito)
02 - Tatuagem (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito)
03 - Eu e as Flores (Nelson Cavaquinho / Jair do Cavaquinho)
04 - Palhaço (Nelson Cavaquinho / Osvaldo Martins / Washington)
05 - Sempre Mangueira (Nelson Cavaquinho / Geraldo Queiroz)
06 - Deus Não Me Esqueceu (Nelson Cavaquinho / Ananias Silva / Armando Bispo)
07 - A Flor e o Espinho (Nelson Cavaquinho / Alcides Caminha / Guilherme de Brito)
08 - Degraus da Vida (Nelson Cavaquinho / César Brasil / Antônio Braga)
09 - Noticia (Nelson Cavaquinho / Nourival Bahia / Alcides Caminha)
10 - Lágrima Sem Juri (Nelson Cavaquinho / Fernando Mauro)
11 - Luto (Nelson Cavaquinho / Sebastião Nunes / Guilherme de Brito)
12 - Luz Negra (Nelson Cavaquinho / Amâncio Cardoso)

I'm surprised RCA did not credit the co-workers.

Only Cartola strikes deeper... this is incredible. Out from the inner soul. I must confess I have been downloading a lot from here. Thanks. Sometimes I get what I wanted, sometimes I fail. Vocal groups leave me cold, but things like this, make me love MPB more and more... Brazil!!!!
