just wanted to give a heads up to any of you feeling
the brazilian thing (i don't think anyone else has
mentioned it, so i thought i would).
i picked up the compilation "black rio" last weekend
and i haven't stopped listening to it. it's on the
strut label and is compiled by dj cliffy--this guy has
got to have the best rare brazilian collection of
anyone! anyhow, the comp is full of amazing 70s black
brazilian funk and soul (i'd never heard of about 80%
of the musicians). the killer for me is the funkiest
brazilian style rendition of "rapper's delight."
everyone i've played it for goes nuts. just get it.
you won't be disappointed!
ps--also got a copy of the MAW remix of nina simone's
"see-line woman" and it's really nice! they did a
great job with a classic track without making it too
housey or screwing with it too much. i think they
added just the right bits--any other opinions?
