- Clube Da Esquina by Milton Nascimento
Four fellers with facial hair come up trumps with a repress of Milton Nascimento tropicalia masterpiece 'Clube Da Esquina'. Named after the collective of Brazilian musicians and arrangers (most notably Lo Borges and arranger Eumir Deodato) he helped found in his home town of Minas Gerais 'Club Da Esquina' ('Corners Club') fuses the sounds of Bossa Nova, Jazz, pop, progressive rock and soul with classical influences to produce one of the smoothest collection of songs that's ever had the pleasure of tickling my inner ear drum. It was originally released in 1972 and the influence of westernized psychedelic rock, pop and soul is certainly evident.The majority of this stuff reminds me of a South American infused version of the Canterbury prog-folk scene, but with the edges smoothed over by fantastic orchestral arrangements and a beautiful vocal delivery. It's Brazilian post-bossa nova smoking pop of the highest calibre. Check it out beardy.
