Re: Joao Donato

Not to derail this thread or anything, but I always thought this tune sounded sort of 'labby about a minute in. Lots of organ and spinette/harpsichord.

Oh, no, yes, they all play a lot here in Portugal. We are their second home, after all (and not unfrequently first). In the 80s I'd see Caetano often, but then I lost interest. It's totally my fault, I know. The only Brazillian singer I follow with a certain religiosity is Maria Monte, which I've been privileged to see many times, but I know my soul needs more of that Brazillian Stereolabic stuff, if you know what I mean. So if you have any suggestions in that vein, they'll be much appreciated -- especially specific recordings. But please that your time, because I always take mine. ;)


In the past two years I have really grown to love Brazillian music, to the extent that it seems to make up a big chunk of my listening these days (like, more than half!)

Here is a list of a few of my very favourite albums (not necessarily that Stereolabic though)


  • Gal Costa - Gal Costa (1969)

  • Gal Costa - India (1973)

  • Elis Regina - Elis ( 1966, 1973, 1974 & 1977 are my favourites of the many LPs titled "Elis"!)

  • Elis Regina - Elis Especial (1968)

  • Elis Regina - Como & Porque (1969)

  • Antonio Carlos Jobim & Elis Regina - Elis & Tom (1974)

  • Nara Leão - Nara (1964)

  • Nara Leão - O Canto Livre de Nara (1965)

  • Nara Leão - Nara (1967)

  • Clara Nunes - Clara, Clarisse, Clara (1972)

  • Clara Nunes - Clara Nunes (1973)

  • Clara Nunes - Claridade (1975)

  • Sylvia Telles - Bossa, Balanço, Balada (1963)

  • Célia - Célia (1972)

  • Tuca - Dracula I love you (1974)

  • Quarteto em Cy / Tamba Trio - Som Definitivo (1966)

  • Quarteto Em Cy - Quarteto Em Cy (1972)

  • Quarteto Em Cy - Antologia do Samba Cancao Vol 1&2 (1975)

  • Marilia Medalha - A Cancao e a Voz de Marilia Medalha na Poesia de Vinicius de Moraes (1972)

  • Maria Creuza, Toquinho & Vinicius - Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Voce (1972)

  • Baden Powell & Vinícius de Moraes - Os Afro-Sambas (1966)

  • Baden Powell - À Vontade (1963)

  • Caetano Veloso & Gal Costa - Domingo (1967)

  • Caetano Veloso - Caetano Veloso (1968)

  • Caetano Veloso - Caetano Veloso (1969)

  • Milton Nascimento - Travessia (1967)

  • Milton Nascimento - Clube Da Esquina (1972)

  • Milton Nascimento - Minas (1976)

  • Arthur Verocai - Arthur Verocai (1972)

  • Marcos Valle - Viola Enluarada (1968)

  • Doces Bárbaros - Doces Bárbaros (1976)



As you can see from this list it's mostly the ladies I listen to :D
I know I am missing out on some big artists there (Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil etc)....there's so much stuff out there sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. If any of the kind people of the forum have more recommendations for great albums similar to the above I'd really love to check them out! :)

I've been listening to this Joao Donato album from 1971 and is this where Stereolab copped most of its sound replete with Brazilian beats, cheesy combo organ (often with a wah pedal) and dominant brass arrangements for their late 90s work? I could swear the odd-time groove of "Cadà Jodel (The Beautiful One)" was lifted for "Parsec" and it's likely that it's confirmed in one of these Stereolab Origins YouTubes. Anyone else familiar with this record?


This sounds great, I'm going to try and obtain a copy immediately! Thanks for posting :D

Thank you so much, Hobobachang!

Do you know Olivia Byington? I don't know any particular recording, but some time ago I saw her live here on TV and her voice sounded delightfully magical to me.
