Four of my favorite LPs and in my opinion, his most prolific works. 1965 - his first LP "Coisas" recorded in Brasil. (reissued) 1972 - his never reissued and now obscure "Maestro" LP recorded in L.A. 1974 - his "Saudade" LP recorded in L.A. (only available as a Japan import) 1975- his never reissued and now obscure "Carnival Of The Spirits" LP recorded in L.A. 1978 - his "Opus 3 nº 1" LP recorded in L.A.
Cuban LP's and recordings which include particular "styles" and "forms" of (playing & singing) "Cuban" music that unfortunately have become, or are on their way to becoming lost art forms. As well as related materiel which may not be "directly" from Cuba.
Mostly LP's that are either long out of print and-or obscure and music from "my own personal collection".
Occasionally some Brasilian things will be added that are hard to find, even on the other great Brasilian blogs, many that are listed in my Blog links. And maybe some things that have nothing to do with Cuban or Brasilian music.
It takes time to do all this, scanning the covers, resizing and uploading, often changing & correcting the info.
Have fun! "The water most often tastes freshest at its source"
