Some awesome soul, MPB, Bossa Nova etc records that don't get enough
love on Sputnik, and general digs.

Clube Da Esquina
Kinda Brazil's answer to The White Album, even though I didn't agree with that
comparison at first. Great clean production. Double LP but it flies by.
Only runs for about half an hour. Some songs feel like fragments and it doesn't
always flow all that well but it's all part of the charm.
Ridiculously awesome live soul record. He sounds similar to Stevie Wonder. The
band is really great and it's the most 'musical' audience I've ever heard.
Here, My Dear
The soul equivalent of Blood on the Tracks (only not quite as good). Double LP with
a bit of filler. The songs aren't always immediate and the lyrics are ultra personal
Funky soul record. Excellent songwriting, clever lyrics. Soundtrack to a film that
works seamlessly as an LP. Perfect arrangements. Gets a bit of love on Sputnik.
Has half the number of ratings of ^ but an awesome record. Arrangements are
Come To My Garden
Sang backing vocals on Stevie records, and also sang 'Lovin' You' which was
covered by that guy on South Park with the bomb on the donkey rigged to
detonate if he hits the high F. She has a million octave voice. The arrangements
are massive. Not as perfectly suited as some of the others on the list but it works.
It's like baroque pop meets soul, so it's a different vibe to the early 70s smooth

Psychedelic album from Brazil in the late 60s. Bit more freaky and out

Elis And Tom
Elis Regina has one of the best voices I've ever heard. Songs are great and the
arrangements aren't overbearing like alot of stuff from this era.
Dez Anos Depois
Double album. Great voice.

Are You Experienced?
Forgot to add this up above. This is worth a listen if you like Nick Drake's 'Pink
Moon' or albums that stripped back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V-

Choo Choo Trane/I Can't Believe It's Not Clarified Butter. Title track slays.

I don't like it as much as High Violet or Boxer yet after two listens but people say
it's a grower.
