Favourite Brazilian Album Covers (Part One)

Jan 14, 2013

David 'Mr Bongo' selects a few of his favourite Brazilian album covers:

Milton Nascimento - Clube de Esquina
Seminal album the spearheaded the 'mineiro' sound.  I never knew if the two figures were Lo Borges and Milton Nascimento when they were young or they were trying to represent their partnership.


Jorge Ben - Jorge Ben
A killer Jorge Ben album.  Get the Japanese pressing if you can for extra sleeve weight!



Norma Bengell - Ooooh Norma
Classy and sexy from Norma.



Pedro Santos - Krishnanda
First heard this album in Sao Pauol around 15 years ago way ahead of its time.  The circle of life cover is crazy - Pedro is the gorilla.  Holy grail business, originals are very hard to find.


Caetano Veloso - Caetano Veloso
Album contains 'Alegria Alegria' as sampled by Ty.  The album is one of the cornerstones of Tropicalia.


Tom Ze - Grande Liquidicao
Satoru is credited with this classic 42nd Street style design.  Does anyone know anything about this guy??


Sambrasa Trio - Em Som Maior
Som Maior released a lot of out killer Bossa albums, well worth investigating.
