'Baby' - cross it off your Wants List at last. Written by Caetano Veloso, arranged by Arthur Verocai, covering Gal Costa. An absolutely killer Brazilian modern soul jam - a rarity in Brazil - that we hammer in DJ sets and have been wanting to release for a while. Taken from the Quinteto Ternura self-titled LP from 1974.
'Filhos De Zambi' is uptempo samba-funk of the highest order, and now very difficult to find at a decent price in it's original RCA 'compacto' format. Percussion high on the mix, hands claps and a brilliant harmonised chorus line.
