Brazil 45, number 71: A. Silvio Cesar – Nao Nasci Pra Jogador / AA. Bebeto – Princesa Negra de Angola
‘Nao Nasci Pra Jogador’ is another long-term, firm favourites of ours. Tough uptempo MPB-samba grooves and a classic vocal to match. Cesar is a prolific composer/singer and recorded many albums and singles for labels including CID, RCA and Odeon.
‘Princesa Negra de Angola’ is a stomping uptempo disco-funk crossover from the super-proflic samba-rock legend, Bebeto. A brilliant record, originally available on a 4-track compacto and on his ‘Esperanças Mil’ LP.
