Erasmo Carlos - Sonhos e Memorias 1941-1972 [1972 Polydor]
Hands down, my favorite Rock LP from Brasil. This record is made with all the love poured into a Beatles album. Very informed by all things Rock as can be noted by the cover with the photos of all his Pop/Rock heros. The very best of production on this one. They were very much aiming for that Abbey Road sound on this session & perhaps trying to outdo them on their production values & maybe succeeding! Let me know what you think? Pop Heaven!! This record is very SOLID & highly enjoyable. The fullest realization of the "New Guard" movement...Brasilian Rock. A Pop-Rock Masterpiece! The Production, songwriting & performance are through the roof on this record & full of some psych beauty too. The engineering on this record is a trip! We're talking HIGH QUALITY TAPE SATURATION & MIXING here! Beautifully recorded & expertly performed by ALL INVOLVED. The Brasilian RECORDING INDUSTRY at the peak of their powers!

P.S. Thanks Greg. Wouldn't have missed this for the world.
One more for my look at Polydor.
