for some reason i have never got round to picking up volume 1, but this is great, varied collection, all good. i also have samba 68 but this isn't so good, kind of one paced and a bit lacklustre...

But for the curious who might like to take a chance on just one MV cd - aside from the very fine Mr Bongo compilations mentioned above - there's a Japanese best-of entitled Marcos Valle For Café Apres-Midi, which was released concurrently with the other EMI-Toshiba reissues.
Definitely worth hearing if you're off-kilter-Brazilian-pop-inclined in the slightest!

and provisao do tempo (where hes underwater in a swimming pool). the title track is great, but what about the rest
and vila sesamo (this is a soundtrack to something?)
any of these worth picking up?
i havent found a decent site, which lists exactly which tracks are on which album, and what chronology there is. a detailed discography, thats what i mean,

Anyway, if this kind of thing looks interesting i'd checkout the dustygroove site/store post haste, there are some other amazing records among these reissues as well.

I think my favourite for all-round consistency, tunefulness and general grooviness is Mustang Cor De Sangue. But others like Vento Sul, Garra, the one with the bed on the cover etc are all incredibly varied and all-round fab. Often he includes some really out-there, experimental tracks, too, as well as the odd acid-rock freakout (esp. on Vento Sul), not to mention the odd lush, Morricone-esque piano-and-strings-based instrumental. He really was a genius in his day. These albums are a bastard to track down, though. Some of them I only have on dodgy vinyl reissues of dubious provenance - and on which the sound quality is pretty chronic.

Previsão do Tempo, what a great album

Here here. Been listening to this album a lot recently and every track is killer. Valle is up there with Veloso as my favourite Brazilian musician (don't get the love for Jorge Ben).
'Vento Sul' is not far behind. Picked up the Light in the Attic reissue last year.

He's playing Glasgow Jazz Festival in June. How is he live? Is it worth trying to go if I'm a little interested?

Somebody was just selling Garra on Amazon for £3.33 or thereabouts. Not heard it yet but cued up next after the Allman Brothers i have on now.

Those four albums Light In The Attic reissued are amongst my favourite music ever produced. Also really love the funky <i>Vontade De Rever Você</i>; haven't totally gotten into the self-titled one from the early 80's tho.
Anyone excited to see him w/ Azymuth? Playing all over the place, I'll see him in London.

Telenovela soundtrack almost entirely written by the Valle brothers. If you ever wanted the Valle take on John Barry check out "Ligação".
