V.A. - Café Apres-Midi Roux - 192 kbps - 111 mb (Reup)

I'm always a little hesitant to post any compilations on this page, since I have 18 volumes of my own Samba series that I would like people to try, but I assure you that this is a real treat. I'd like to heap a little praise on the Japanese DJ's. It is the Japanese who bravely get in there and re-issue some very fine rarities. The Burnier & Caritier 1974 set on my page would not even be a topic of discussion if the Japanese had not re-mastered & re-issued it. This 22 track trip through 60's & 70's MPB & international Pop-Rock compiled by Toru Hashimoto for Suburbia Factory is really something to behold. Many fine picks here from super rare LP's. Standouts like "Witchi In Brazil" by Harpers Bizzarre from 1967 or "Eden Rock" by The Fifth Avenue Band from 1969 or "The Mothman Samba" by Hirth Martinez from 1977 are just a few of the gems handpicked from rare & out of print LP's. "Ride The Wind" by The Youngbloods from 1971 at 9 minutes is another pop concept that I stand in awe of, as well as "Magical Connection" by John Sebastian from 1970 & "Golden Sun Goddess" by Jessie Davis also from 1970 are simply amazing musical numbers. I'm presenting this one at 192 kbps & suggest that if find yourself enjoying this then please pick up a copy of this CD. Extremely groovy! I hope you enjoy?
