Braziliana - Jack Parnell & His Orchestra (1977)


 
Sadly a bit too late to celebrate the excellent Rio Olympics, this is a fine British-made tribute to the Brazilian latin sound.
 
Mostly instrumental, but with some tracks featuring nice vocals from Madeline Bell and Simon Morton, this album has been out there before, but not for some time.
 
Well worth a listen, it captures the samba and bossa nova sound of the era perfectly, with a recording I am very pleased with, the vinyl sounding in excellent condition!
 
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!

A Neil Diamond Tanto Di Capello - Franco Cassano (Appeal!)


 
I have been getting an awful lot of messages from a reader asking after this album, which I do not have.
 
So, I would like to appeal to all readers if they have this album could they share it?
 
Thanks, Mark
