1022 DOLORES POR DONDE CAMINAS? POLYDOR(SPA) 40.00
(picture sleeve) I'm really glad to be able to offer
this for sale once more, it's been quite a while. Taken from the "Ana
Nisi Masa" LP, and backed with "Sandunga" on the flip, these two monster
brazilian fusion numbers are the strongest tracks from the LP, and as
a bonus, "Por Donde caminas?" benefits here from a tighter, punchier
alternative mix on this single.
1376 LALO DIRTY HARRY/LATIN SOUL VERVE(FRA) sold
Excuse my ignorance, as I don't know who this bunch of unknowns are,
but certainly dig their way with a Schifrin tune, especially nuggets
like these! Pure boogaloo pressure on "Latin Soul" and percussive mayhem
on the wildly funky "Dirty Harry".
1377 GIANNI MARCHETTI EL MAGNIFICO TONY CARRERA
Italian score for Spanish film from '69. "Psico Classico" will satisfy
your mad beat cravings, but the real 24 karat diamond here is "Amore
In Controluce". Gentle bossa strumming, beautiful female humming followed
by haunting chorus and, when, about halfway in the sitar comes in on
the melody, well.. I'm tempted to use the word 'exquisite'..is that
ok? Ok, it's exquisite!

1379 TINTA BLANCA SALMO VII PHIILPS(MEX) 40.00
Rough, no messing, Mexican funk, so rare! "Todo Va A Cambiar"
1380 BABA-BERTA RING MY BELL JOEY(MEX) 60.00
Unknown latin disco funk. Forget the a-side unless you fancy a good
laugh but hold tight for the flip. Twisted disco-funk beats and out
there Moog melody, pure ESG style grooves. Short but totally deranged!
1394 POP FIVE MUSIC INC. ORANGE/MISSION IMPOSSIBLE
Super-rare early release by the legendary Miguel Graca Moura. Their
version of "Mission Impossible" is surprisingly fresh. Very raw sounding
and with a hard funky groove to it.
1395 MANUELA MACHADO POESIA E MUSICA DE JAZZ MOVIEPLAY(POR) 20.00
Female poetry recital over a cool jazz background, kind of like beat
style but with a twist!

Early sixties Simonal 4-track EP.
1397 DUO OURO NEGRO PATA PATA/UPA NEGUINHO COLUMBIA(POR) sold
4-track EP from '68, very rare! Their version of the Brazilian club
classic "Upa Neguinho" sounds perfect, with bossa-jazz sounds supplied
by the Jorge Machado ensemble, and cool vocals.
