Brazil 45, number 46:
A. Luis Carlos Vinhas - Tanganica (Tapecar Version) / AA. O Som de L.C.V. - Tanganica
Luis Carlos Vinhas or L.C.V is one of our favourite artists here at Bongo HQ. His ‘O Som Psicodelico’ LP is an all-time classic.
Side A here features a killer latin-Brazilian dance floor fusion, heavy on the horns and piano. Sounds like a Tito Puente workout, with Brazilian backing vocals floated over the top.
The AA side features the album version, a much deeper cut with lush textures, breaks, horns and animal noises! Taken from the ‘O Som Psicodelico’ LP, which we highly recommend you track down.
