From the Collection

My always expanding collection of Brazilian records from 10+ years of digging. All original pressings and not for sale.

Jose Prates - Tam... Tam... Tam

Label: Polydor
Year: 1958
Genre: Samba

Classic holy grail, the bleuprint for a lot of modern afro samba sounds. Well ahead of its time, this album is most famous for the track Nana Imbora, which is strikingly similar to the famous Jorge Ben song Mas Que Nada, which wouldn't come out for another 5 years.
