Vampisoul - VAMPI216

The Silvery Boys was created in 1965 in the district of Campo Grande, Rio de Janeiro, featuring a unique blend of organ, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, and trombone. They became known as "The Famous Bandinha de Campo Grande" and released their debut album on RGE in 1967. At the end of the 60s, the sound of the garage beat and the bossa nova and samba coexisted smoothly in the repertoire of a good number of Brazilian bands. You could find playful farfisa licks and guitar riffs combined with moving bossa rhythm drum patterns and powerful brass arrangements, groovy club tunes next to lounge mood sounds, across the tracklist of so many albums released at the time. That is exactly what the second album of The Silvery Boys (1968) comprises. Band members Jos Carlos (trombone) and Fernando Soares (guitarra) sign most of the songs on this self-titled record that also includes some versions of the Spanish famous Duo Din mico, 'Amor amargo' and 'A Recordar', as well as other international hits (Tommy James & The Shondells' 'Gone, Gone, Goner'). However, 'Voc Balan a Meu Cora o' -composed by Jos Messias- is the stand-out cut here and became a much sought-after club tune after being included in the second volume of the cult compilation series "High Jazz" in the early 00s. A dance song so irresistible that makes the search for this elusive Brazilian album worthwhile. After years unavailable and with originals currently selling for outrageous prices, we are thrilled to offer The Silvery Boys LP, reissued on vinyl for the first time in its original artwork and quality 180g pressing.
