Marcos Valle – O Cafona

Garra, the second full-length record from Marcos Valle is a VERY tough record to come by. Thanks to the good folks at Light In The Attic, we all can revel in this bit of post-bossa/post-tropicalia/pre-black rio slice of Brazilian goodness as well as 3 other 1970s records from Valle. Some might be surprised that “O Cafona” is essentially a novela theme song, but if you paid attention when I raved about the soundtrack that features a different version, you know that novelas in Brazil had some seriously good and often exclusive music. Valle’s version here slows things down just a tad, makes the drums a bit punchier and adds some almost proto-rap vocals to make it extra-nice.
