- Artist: Charles Maurice
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 12/11/2015
Just one year after the 2014 release of the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation (FVR 098CD/LP), Favorite Recordings presents the second volume of its acclaimed series. At the controls this time is French DJ and producer Charles Maurice (compiler of 2015's French Disco Boogie Sounds (FVR 101CD/LP)), digging again in his collection and travelling to Brazil for the occasion in order to find some local hidden treasures. The result comes as nine additional obscure hits from the Brazilian funk-boogie-disco scene of 1977 to 1984. At that time musicians and arrangers such as Lincoln Olivetti, Robson Jorge, and Oberdan Magalhães, along with Banda Black Rio, were responsible for the new music scene. They dominated the studios with sophisticated and original arrangements that have forever transformed Brazilian musical culture. This music, at that point, had gained a new style and great international respect that has remained ever since. Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds Volume 2 pays tribute to this great era, with notes and original artworks. Includes tracks by Marcia Maria, Miss Lene, Brenda, Cristina Camargo, Lady Zu, Almir Ricardi, Rosana, Kaito, and Adriana.
