I've been pulling out the soul 45's recently, and thought I'd feature three in particular that I have been playing on repeat for the past few weeks.

Of course I can't include "Pais Tropical" without including the original by one of Brazil's finest, Jorge Ben:
I will probably feature a future post on Jorge Ben, who is one of my favorite singer-songwriters from the 60's and 70's, but wanted to conclude this post with another solid track off of the Rabbits & Carrots Soul Latino album, titled "Romeo y Julieta". Has this track been sampled by someone before? It sounded so familiar to me the first time I heard it, but couldn't recall. Anyway, good stuff!

I have a bunch of Baden Powell albums that are well worth listening to, especially from his On Guitar series, like Images on Guitar, Canto, or Tristeza, but Os Afro Sambas, is the masterpiece in Powell's catalog. Highly recommended!
