A. Wilson Simonal - Nem Vem Que Nao Tem / AA. Trio Mocoto - Nao Adianta
Brazil 45, number 20:
Wilson Simonal - Nem Vem Que Nao Tem
An instant and super catchy samba-MPB hit made famous through by its inclusion in Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund’s ‘City Of God’. This is a firm Simonal favourite here at Mr Bongo HQ. Simonal was a hugely successful singer in the 1960’s and early 70’s; one of the most popular artists in Brazil infact. ‘Nem Vem Que Nao Tem’ was previously released on 7” by Odeon in France and Spain, and appears on his ‘Alegria, Alegria !!!’ LP on Odeon Brazil, released in 1967
Trio Mocoto - Nao Adianta
Trio Mocoto were one of Jorge Ben Jr’s main backing bands and highly influential to his sound. They recorded with him on the seminal ‘Força Bruta’, ‘Negro É Lindo’ and ‘Tábua de Esmeralda’ LP’s. Nao Adianta first appeared on Trio Mocoto’s self-titled 1977 Arlequim LP. It was subsequently released on 7” in Spain, Portugal and Italy (and we are assuming France too).
