i'm currently obsessed with this brasilian disco-funk album from 1981. the playing is incredible, and every song on it is catchy and perfect. kind of bit of a city-pop feel

yeah, his Leon Ware-ish phase. lovely lovely rec

imo, he was even better, like hungrier, before he moved to the US, sick with the military dictatorship. Previsão do Tempo from 73, is his 70's apex. more bossa-funk than disco, and prominently featuring cuíca and berimbau, which i'm a sucka for both; his songwritting and playing there really stands out

nice thx for the rec, i wasn't sure where to go next in his discography. i listened to some of the 60s samba stuff and let spotify run for a while after listening to vontade and it was all excellent

Previsao do Tempo is my favorite of his albums as well, Azymuth are the backing band on most of it Their other (mostly instrumental) collaborations from the same year have a similar prog-funk vibe, perhaps especially the Fly Cruzeiro jingles that LITA reissued but also O Fabuloso Fittipaldi OST.
the first track on it, the one ironically extolling the virtues of Flamengo FC, is with O Terço I think, if that's more to your liking check out Vento Sul which is also magnificent.

IMO everything from Samba 68 up to his Brazilian Sesame Street album is essential.

Going with the flow of the recommendations here, and everything I’ve listened to is indeed excellent: Vontade de Rever Você (sorta hooked on “Garimpando”, also: great sleeve, does he look hot or what?); Samba ‘68; and Previsão do Tempo, which I’m currently engrossed in.

btw, for Spotifyers and possibly other streamers:
Previsão do Tempo is not on Spotify as a stand-alone album, but it’s disc 9 on the so-called Box Marcos Valle, which I assume is the 2011 11-CD box set Valle Tudo that covers - all? some? haven’t investigated further yet - of his 1963-1974 work.

His self-titled album from 1983 is basically a continuation of the boogie funk of Vontade de Rever Voce, and "Estrelar" is one of his best-known songs. So OP check that out if you haven't already. From the early 70s don't miss Garra and Vento Sul.

One of the most consistent Brazilian artists out there and even more then some of his more acclaimed contemporaries. And yeah, his disco/funk period is extremely underrated, I actually spun this record this morning before seeing this post. Bought it when it was reissued during RSD. Think it was my only RSD purchase that year.

I also really recommend his 1998 album Nova Bossa Nova. Late period albums by most artists can cause reason for suspicion but this album is really excellent and I think gets overlooked in his catalog.

lol, i tried to google that '73 record and i got a bunch of brazilian sites trying to give me the weather in portland, but in portuguese

From the early 70s don't miss Garra and Vento Sul.

Garra is not my favorite album of his, though it has some great stuff like Wanda Vidal. That album cover, though!

The video for Estrelar is also ridiculous.

Deflatormouse, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 00:50 (two months ago) link

a very good read about his 79-82 period:

Lmao I’m blind ... sorry didn’t read the post directly above this somehow

Assuming you aren’t in the US? I’m not seeing this on Spotify for me.

No, I’m in the Netherlands. You searched for Box Marcos Valle, right?

I did notice that that subdivision-per-disc thing is only visible on desktop Spotify, not on mobile. Garra is disc 7, Vento Sul disc 8.

Some of these albums have dedicated playlists btw, maybe try your luck there?

btw here’s that video for “Estrelar” Deflatormouse mentioned:

Don't sleep on the 'Bicicleta' video:

Hadn't seen that one. Wow, that's a whole other level of ridiculousness.

Deflatormouse, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 04:02 (two months ago) link

Marcos has a pretty set up on the beach judging by the Estrelar video.

Yeah, it doesn't show up on mobile or desktop. There are a few playlists but most of the tracks are missing.

I discovered this album when was available on Spotify in the US a few years ago -- the issue with the yellow cover. But it fell off a few months later and hasn't come back since. A shame because it's an absolute masterpiece.

I need to check out the Ware collab a little more deeply -- while I'm not a massive fan of Musical Massage, I Want You is my favorite Gaye record.

Oh that’s not the one that sounds like him it’s just his best album. But they did versions of the same song and wrote on each other’s albums and shit later
