Marcos Valle Reissues : “Self Titled” + “Garra”
via TurntableLab: “CLASSIC BRAZILIAN SINGER, SONGWRITER AND PRODUCER MARCOS VALLE CATALOG REISSUES. Light In The Attic is no stranger to digging up obscure pieces and shedding some much needed light on them (see Rodriguez, Jim Sullivan, etc). Times were turbulent in Brazil in the late 60′s heading into the 70′s with the government placing a stronghold on many civil liberties and the music of the period was one of the larger outlets they were trying to knock out. From Bossa Nova in the early days, Valle made a trip to the America and found new inspiration from the likes of the fusion folk and rock scenes running rampant in the young communities. Starting in 1970 his sound took a turn, gathering those inspirations Valle created a wonderful sound of Brazilian traditions melding with American folk, pop sensibilities.
Amazing effort was put into these reissues from Light In The Attic with both albums coming in 180-gram wax LP with original art expanded on a gatefold old-school “tip-on” jacket. You can pick upMarcos Valle Marcos Valle (180g) LP and Marcos Valle Garra (180g) LP now at Turntable Lab!”
