The G/9 Group – Brazil Now (1968)

Sonorama L-06 (2005)

The promised album by The G/9 Group has just arrived from Moscow, so after the discussion about if it is the same Valéria, who is singing on Steve Bernard‘s Top Hit Party the one singing here, I have finally had the chance to compare.

Honestly speaking, just by listening I can neither claim that it is the same Valéria, nor that it is another singer with a similar name.
From 1960 to 1968 the Zeitgeist has deeply changed and the change affected all musical aspect including ways of singing, not to mention ageing ladies’ voices.

Anyway, here is a recording strongly representing the spirit of ’68, created by:

Arranged By – Maestro Pachequinho
 
Vocals – Edgardo, Joab, Valéria, Zezé
Double Bass – Sergio
Drums – Wilson  das Neves
Guitar – Neco
Mastered By – Jury Lutz
Percussion – Pedro
Piano – Dom Salvador

Producer – Henrique Gandelman
Producer (Assistant) – Clovis Mello

Containing these compositions:

01. P’ra Que Chorar (I’ll Take A Chance) (Baden Powell / N. Gimbel / Vinicius De Moraes)
02. Vesti Azul (Nonato Buzar)
03. Ponteio (Edu Lobo / Capinam)
04. Sambou…Sambou (Alphabet) (João Donato / João Melo / N. Gimbel)
05. Este Seu Olhar (That Look You Wear) (A. C. Jobim / Gene Lees)
06. Viola Enluarada (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
07. Lady Madonna (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
