Description

A certified Holy Grail of Brazilian music and our most requested reissue! Fast or 'normal'? You decide we have cut both 'versions' here. Official Mr Bongo reissue. Licensed from Ze Roberto. Ze Roberto aka Joaquim Roberto Braga is a composer, singer and instrumentalist from Brazilian folk music roots. 'Lotus 72 D' is a tribute to the Brazilian Formula 1 world champion driver of 1972, Emerson Fittipaldi. In Roberto's own words: "Lotus 72 D is a tribute to the sensational talent of Formula 1 driver, Emerson Fittipaldi, was was crowned world champion in 1972. I can't remember the names of the musicians who participated in the recording because they were hired by the original record label, RCA/Victor. The production team consisted of artistic co-ordinator, Henrique Gastaldello, and arranger, Severino Filho. The year of recording was 1973. I'm not aware of another fast version of the song 'Lotus 72 D'... My contract with the RCA/Victor was for 2 years. All my musical works belongs to me." The mystery surrounding the 'fast version' stems from the Via Brazil compilation from 2001 the version featured was pitched up. Hence, a lot of people know it at that tempo, because it is otherwise impossible to obtain!
