This was one of the very first posts at Orgy in Rhythm over a year ago and so I thought it was high time for it to be reposted.It's another lp of killer funky fusion from Brazil and a big favourite of mine.I've ripped it at 320 this time from the Brazilian cd reissue and it's at Rapidshare.com

Although quite an obscure field, the world of Brazilian fusion can often yield great results. It seems Brazilian studios were great fans of early synths as many of the recordings by Azymuth and Marcos Valle testify. This album is one of the finest examples of Rhodes/synth led fusion - the percussion is as good as you'd expect from a Brazilian band and often 100 mph! The compositions though are varied and complex.Metropole features a massive break beat kick off and bridge ,Fabricia is a fusion flyer later to be beautifully covered by Harris Simon , Imigrantes changes completely before coming full circle and Metro just rides on a wave of wah wah'd clavinet and String Ensemble. The original of this album is probably near impossible to find outside of Brazil, but was re issued on cd for the great 100 Anos De Musica series by RCA /BMG .

Very nice posts this week. I've been visiting the site for a while now and havent commented before. Any chance you could re-up the Arthur Verocai album while on the Brazilian theme?
