Elis Regina – Em pleno verão (1970) 320 Abr

Elis ReginaEm pleno verãoReleased 1970 on PhilipsLINK HERE I much prefer Elis performing MPB material than her bright, brash take on bossa nova.

Caroline Crawford – Nice And Soulful (1979) www.dustygroove.comA stunning set of soul tunes from the lovely Caroline Crawford — produced by Bohannon, and some of his best work from the time!
