full vk

First vinyl reissue of this 1977 LP by one of the great figures of Brazilian music. Brilliant tracks like  necessrio Vero carioca, Venha dormir em casa or Musica para Betinha`s make it one of the strongest albums to come out of Brazil in the 1970s. TIP! 
Tim Maia was born in 1942 in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro and started his musical career at an early age, along with close friends such as Roberto Carlos or Jorge Ben. Carlos would eventually help him to get a deal for his first single at CBS. 
During the 70s Maia started to incorporate soul and funk elements into his style. After a two-year period involvement in the Racional cult in Brazil, Maia` s funky style was still at its best when he released this album in 1977. It was his first and only recording for Som Livre, the legendary label that became extremely popular due to the many soap operas soundtracks in its extensive catalogue…..~




70s soul from Brazil – and a tremendously strong effort from the legendary Tim Maia! This record was Tim’s first after an initial run on Polydor – and it shows Maia tightening up his groove even more, but still avoiding the slicker sounds of later years. There’s a really focused sound here that’s totally great – one that shows that Maia’s work was hardly just some happy cross-cultural accident, and instead the careful work of an artist who was out to challenge the best American soul acts of the time! There’s a warm little groove to most of the tracks – tripping along lightly in the vein of some of our favorite US mellow soul from the mid 70s – an approach that’s mostly soul, but with some funky undercurrents – and often smooth, but never cloying or overly commercial. Titles…Dusty Groove…~
