Various Artists – Bossa Nova
Sua Historia, Sua Gente
Philips 1975

Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Carlos Lyra.

This Luxurous 3 LP Box Set, incl. 20 page booklet from 1975 on Philips
is a true collectors item. Bossa Nova is no type of music that we frequent
at Global Groove, it is more an item for Loronix. I offered it to Zecalouro
from Loronix when I visited him in Rio last year, with all RESPECT Zeca,
I never understood you didn’t use it. I remember going through that
wonderful book on Bossa Nova by Caetano Rodrigues and found
that it was registered there as well.

    This is a nice look at the Philips label. As the “Blue Brasil” series is to the EMI Odeon label.

    ik heb een exemplaar van deze set.
    Gevonden in Porto Alegre toen ik daar was – exact 1 jaar geleden voor mijn werk. Ik begrijp dat je nog al eens naar Brazilie gaat voor plaatjesjagen.
    Vandaar deze gouden tip: het barst er van de tweedehands platenwinkeltjes ! Heb zelf 20 prachtplaten gescoord daar.(ik begin pas met verzamelen dus een eigen blog duurt nog even)
    Het ligt bijna tegen Uruguay aan, dus ik zou in de winter hier gaan , het is er nogal koud in juli ; )

    A musical treasure. Somehow Bossa Nova always takes me back to those wonderful days in the early 1960’s.

    I was a young boy during the Bossa Nova craze. I lived in Los Angeles, California, so we only caught the tip of the iceberg. The popular albums by Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto, and Carlos Jobim were all great but I’ve always wanted to have a deeper look at this beautiful music.

    Thank you very much for this post. It will be listened to with pleasure.

    Thank you so much for this compilation. I have no idea why the inestimable Zeca Louro did not post this on Loronix, but I’m glad I stopped by. I love to hear how Brazilians experienced their own musical revolution that was Bossa Nova. I have heard Jobim albums that he did before the Bossa Nova sea change and it is clear that the new sound was a collaborative effort involving many geniuses. Thanks again for this historic insight.
