Marcos Valle - Marcos Valle (1970)

Hello, good evening! This is one of the most requested albums throughout the short Loronix existence, especially in the first six months. My hopes of having this album in our collection were minimal and I believe that everybody understood across time the situation would not easily change from one hour to another. However, there is a network of collaborators around us, able to make surprises at any time. One of the most amazing collaborators strikes again, AdHoc, directly from the European winter to the warm winds of Rio de Janeiro and here for all Marcos Valle's fans around the world. Thanks a lot, AdHoc. Let's see.

This is Marcos Valle - Marcos Valle (1970), for Odeon, featuring Marcos Valle and Paulo Sergio Valle compositions on an album that seems to be a transition from the 1960s Bossa Nova to the more pop oriented sound made by Marcos Valle in the beginning of the 1970s. AdHoc says the Brazilian group Som Imaginario is in this session, which is something we can easily realize by hearing track 09 - Suite Imaginaria (Marcos Valle). Track 06 - Esperando o Messias features The Golden Boys as special guest. Complete personnel listing is not available, but you can fill this time examining this fantastic front and back cover. Tracks include:

01 - Quarentão Simpático (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 - Ele e Ela (Marcos Valle)
03 - Dez Leis (Is That Law) (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
04 - Pigmalião (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle / Novelli)
05 - Que Eu Canse e Descanse (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
06 - Esperando o Messias (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) with Golden Boys
07 - Freio Aerodinâmico (Marcos Valle)
08 - Os Grilos (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
09 - Suíte Imaginária (Marcos Valle)
10 - Os Grilos (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) (1967 single version)

Ohhh que maravilla! Hermoso como todo lo de Marcos Valle.
Ojala postees pronto un discazo que algunas vez hace años escuché y se me hizó increible, creo q' su nombre es "Vento Sul" creo?
Gracias por compartir estas joyas que por estas tierras mexicanas dificilmente voy a ver o conocer!!

A transitional record, still undecided about which way to go. Marcos goes a little samba-rock, a little Clube da Esquina (his backup band is Som Imaginário), a little classical, a little soul, a little rock. Later he found out that he shouldn't waste time and think about labels... ehehehehehe
The picture was taken in his own family's house in Leblon... it's his sister's bedroom. But for all effects it's a motel room...

Does anyone know who is the woman who sings so so so tenderly in Suíte Imaginária, Canção, track 9?


Keep up the good work, Loro.

Obrigado por postar também em FLAC. Especialmente sabendo que há custos para manter os arquivos em servidor. Mas agradeço profundamente pela qualidade - tanto da música como dos arquivos.

Gracias, gracias. Creo que con este he logrado completar, de aquí y de allá, toda la discografía de Marcos Valle. Me encanta, y en España es desconocido del todo.
Magnífico tu blog.
