Brasil

5-23-17

A while back, I found a CD on Philips Brasil, representing “Brasil” – though it likely has more to do with what was on offer in 1984, at the advent of the compact disc.  So, maybe not your best selection, but a selection none-the-less…

Brasil (Philips Brasil 822842.2)

  1. NEY MATOGROSSO – Bambo de bambau
  2. ERASMO CARLOS – Close
  3. KLEITON & KLEDIR – Viva
  4. ELBA RAMALHO – Banho de cheiro
  5. CAETANO VELOSO – Eclipseoculta
  6. GAL COSTA – Rumba Louca
  7. ALCEU VALENCA – Anunciacao
  8. MARINA – Fulgas
  9. EMILIO SANTIAGO – Nego John
  10. JOAO BOSCO – Nacao
  11. CHICO BUARQUE – Morena de Angola
  12. TOQUINHO – Aquarela
  13. ELIS REGINA – Nada sera como antes

Total time: 57:55

Like I said previously, newer stuff Mostly from 1983 – so while the guys I actually like (such as Hermeto Pascoal) are likely described as M.P.B. – with this disc, I can hip myself to 1984 Brasil, as such.

Allan Holdsworth

I had the good fortune to see Allan Holdsworth play live a few times.  He was always amazing – but, then again, I was a huge fan of Tempest!

I managed to get some of his hard-to-find records / CD’s, too:

Australia and New Zealand Music

Topic from Brian Ware…

When I was married (previously), I ran a company called ‘ANZ Imports’.  There was a place for me to advertise, “One Step Ahead” – so we took out an advertisement in that ‘magazine’ and went to town!

I duly went to New Zealand 7 x times – but only once to Australia (we’re talking 1980 – 1987); both of those places are wonderful countries and I am pleased to say I went to both of them.  I ended up with a LARGE collection of New Zealand music (I even had business cards printed up, “Specialist in New Zealand Artists”) – NEWS FLASH!  Nearly everything that got released in Australia got released in NZ.

The man I worked for during that time, Tony Harrington, was my facilitator for all of this (he was who actually owned ‘ANZ Imports’).  The world was a very different place that long ago; The NZ dollar was about half of a US dollar, so I could offer, well…everything coming out of both Australia and New Zealand!

During  1980 – 1987, not everything from Australia and New Zealand got a US release.  But a lot of great stuff was being released there!  (However, I have 3 x shelves of NZ music, yet only really 1 x shelf of Australian music!).  The big Australian groups were Icehouse (also known as The Flowers), INXS, Midnight Oil…the biggest NZ group was Split Enz.

And, yes, some groups got US issues – Mental As Anything, and (eventually) Split Enz.

My personal favorite group was The Swingers (Phil Judd from Split Enz!).  They never came and played here (that I know of) – they only had one LP, but it was very, very good!

I remember Split Enz LP’s (remember, seasons reversed) “resting in a customs-house bed”, so we could not sell ‘em – and that was for an LP + 12”!  (Not a very good one, as I recall – remember being disappointed with “Conflicting Emotions”?)  The NZ issue had both an LP & 12” single.

During my many visits to NZ, I got to meet Blam Blam Blam (who were uncooperative), Dick Driver (Who never had much anything for me to sell), and Mike Chunn (of Split Enz, who got me dubs of the Split Enz clips, at a time when that was impossible otherwise!).  I remember watching Tommy Adderley perform in Takapuna!  I also remember going to the farewell show of Split Enz in 1984…that didn’t last!

But in 1987, the LP pressing stopped in NZ; at the time, that seemed to be a death sentence!  Australia quickly took up pressing CD’s for both Australia and New Zealand.

Tom Waits

Happy birthday Tom Waits (1949) and Harry Chapin (1942).

I went for the Tom Waits paper sleeves from Island a while back…but my “price” has to be an original Asylum Records issue of “Swordfishtrombones”…

Blancmange

Happy birthday Harpo Marx (1893)!  I do like me some Marx Brothers!

BLANCMANGE

Initially, I did not understand why Blancmange were so popular.  I didn’t buy many of their records, when they came out – everything I got, I bought in the aftermarket.  So, nothing was too expensive!

Yes

Happy birthday Jon Anderson (singer of Yes) (1944) – this is also the day that Nick Drake died in 1974.

Since I only like Yes WITH Jon Anderson, I’ll do Yes today!  I’ve bought a few editions of some Yes titles!

“The Yes” on an Italian LP, a 5.1 DVD-A of “Fragile”…I remember hearing them back around 1970 on the FM radio: “All Good People”, probably.  I bought “Fragile” as soon as it came out, and quickly lost interest – but why?  It is British progressive rock!  I guess I just didn’t need “Close To The Edge”; a discount store near here had the 3LP “Yessongs” for a really low price, so I got that one, when new, too.

“90125” was originally called “80143” or something like that, indicating it was a dollar less in retail price.  I also bought the SA-CD boxed set, when it was new (as that added a few titles to the short list of what was on SA-CD).

Ryuichi Sakamoto “Ongakuzukan” SHM-CD

Happy birthday Dick Heckstall-Smith (sax player in Colosseum)(1934) and Bryan Ferry (singer & piano player of Roxy Music)!

RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – Ongakuzukan / Illustrated Music Encyclopedia (2CD SHM-CD)

The original 1984 LP was 10 tracks, it was…all we knew about Mr. Sakamoto, at that time.  There are several versions of CD, each time adding a track (or two).  This album is straightforward Japanese music, of the electro-pop type; a Y.M.O. solo album, too.  The new 2CD SHM-CD version is designated as the “2015 edition”, with 27 tracks!  Disc 2 of the new set is 12 “demos” of nearly the entire album!

To be fair, it is a pretty good Ryuichi Sakamoto album.  I’d put it in the Top 10 of Y.M.O. solo albums.

MUTE BEAT

Japanese dub reggae!  I saw them live, long ago – in Santa Monica, CA!  I have never looked them up, when I visit Tokyo, Japan.  Kazufumi Kodama is the main guy.  I believe the bass player passed away a while ago.  I remember getting the cassette of “No. 0” before there were any CD’s released, courtesy of the TRA Project.  No, I don’t have “everything” by them…
