really enjoying those 3 solo albums, thank you all for recommending
was told by a Brazilian friend that many are critical of the Jovem Guarda since it seems wilfully ignorant of political issues (and some say it was supported by the regime)

niels, to give some more context to the Jovem Guarda thing you mentioned: yes, they were definitley the Clean Young Kids that you could take home to your parents, like Cliff Richard in the UK or the yé-yé ppl in France. Politicized performers and folkies (using this shorthand though there's a lot of differences between the type of people defending "traditional" music in Brazil and yr Pete Seegers) despised them not only for this, but also for the American influence on their sound, which they would view as cultural imperialism. HOWEVER this also means that once the Tropicália heads came along, those guys were way more sympathetic towards the Jovem Guarda, since they too loved American and British Pop music. Gal Costa and Maria Bethânia covered Roberto/Erasmos songs, Caetano Veloso wrote a song for Roberto. And these were super-credible opponents of the regime.

that is very good info, thanks!
I was scanning the youtube channel you recommended on another thread (vinil something) for Erasmo records but didn't find any, I get the feeling a doc on him could be p interesting

Strange when deaths follow each other, I heard minutes ago about Pablo Milanés passing away.
