Jorge Ben - Historia da MPB (1970)

Hello, good evening! This is the album were the last challenge with Jorge Ben and Copa Trio was taken, by the way, another mom’s contribution. I was not thinking about showing at Loronix, but when I took it again today to scan a page, I could see that two tracks are Jorge Ben backed by J.T. Meirelles e Os Copa 5 and a strange force moved my body towards the turntable for a spin. Thanks to the Loronix friend that asked for the second page scan, it is included. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben - Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira Nr. 8 (1970), for Abril Cultural, featuring Jorge Ben selected cuts performed by Jorge Ben, J.T. Meirelles e Os Copa 5, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Maestro Rogerio Duprat, Os Originais do Samba, Trio Mocoto, Toquinho and Trio de Edison Machado, a constellation of Brazilian artists on a 10-inch album with a extended duration of almost 27 minutes running time. This is a really nice treat for a given Wednesday. Tracks include:

I never leave comments on these things, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you're doing with this blog. There's no way I'd be able to discover most of these albums on my own and I love the info you provide with the packages (which are very well put together).

Thanks - I really appreciate it.
