Waltel Branco serves up Brazilian soap

Via Mr Bongo, out now: "Originally released on Fermata (Brazil) in 1970, this brilliant - incredibly lengthy titled album contains incidental songs from three soap operas; ‘Assim na Terra Como No Céu’, ‘Passo dos Ventos’and the most well known ‘Irmãos Coragem’.

The album contains elements not dissimilar to Incredible Bongo Band, Nico Gomez, classic Blaxploitation OSTs and lost library gems. Originals are nigh on impossible to find and we are very proud to be able to reissue it, with replica original artwork and packaging, on Mr Bongo.

The Mr Bongo LP reissue is manufactured in Japan, presented in a super high quality card sleeve with replica original artwork. The CD is presented in a 4-page digi-pack.

This is the second Waltel Branco album Mr Bongo have released; the first was ‘Meu Balanco’, recorded in 1965, released in 1975.
