Brazil 45, number 40:
A. Sandra de Sa - Olhos Coloridos / AA. Equipe Rádio Cidade - Bons Tempo: Sao Paulo (Good Times)
‘Olhos Coloridos’ is an 80’s MPB/boogie jam, thats sits perfectly alongside the likes of Maia, Valle, Jorge and Olivetti. Backed here, by some of the members from Banda Black Rio. Taken from her self-titled 1982 LP on RGE Brazil.
‘Bons Tempo Sao Paulo (Good Times)’ was originally released on a rare promo only 7" from 1980, this is a Brazilian boogie version of Good Times by Chic / Rapper's Delight, voiced by radio DJs from Sao Paulo especially for the Christmas holiday season!
The replayed version of ‘Good Times’ stands up to the Chic version, and the added cuica heavy percussion breakdown gives it the true Brazilian flavour.
