Hello, Good Night! Picture yourself at home with no access to the Internet during 18 hours with your life out there, banking account, emails, customers, etc. I'm making the move to a new service and I hope nobody will be stopping me with this change. Anyway, I'm back again to business and I want to entertain Loronixers before answering tons of emails and others things to do. I will let you with an album from a obscure band from the early 70's that make a great success when their first LP was shown to Loronixers.
This is D'Angelo - D'Angelo (1970), for Equipe. Nobody could tell me details about this group, but they make a great success, especially among European DJs. If you are in the mood of the groovy sounds of the 70's and the Samba Soul scene, which is represented by artists such like Tim Maia, Os Diagonais, Cassiano and others, this is the album that you cannot skip. The repertoire has several well-known tunes, performed by female chorus, probably the ladys at the cover.
01 - Coroné Antônio Bento (Luis Wanderley / João do Vale)
02 - Padre Cícero (Tim Maia / Cassiano)
03 - Curto de Véu e Grinalda (Moraes Moreira / Galvão)
04 - BR 3 (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
05 - Agora (Ivan Lins / Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza)
06 - Eu Também Quero Mocotó (Jorge Ben "Jorge Benjor")
07 - Cristina (Carlos Imperial / Tim Maia)
08 - Primavera (Cassiano / Silvio Rochael)
09 - Procurando Tú (Antônio Barros / J. Luna)
10 - Azul da Cor do Mar (Tim Maia)

Totally fab...The group photo looks like a combination of the Tijuana Brass & Brasil 66! (Can you tell I love the old A&M classics?)
Thanks again for a great post!

I reissued this LP because the cover looked so great and when we heard the record we knew we had to release it.
Durval Ferreira managed to track down organist and leader D'Angelo who was living in terrible poverty on a beach near Vitoria.
We sent him some money as a kind of advance, but it is always sad to hear this kind of story.
