Release Info: Dom Salvador e Abolicao - Som, Sangue e Raca 1971 (CBS)
Label : CBS
In the late '60s, Salvador formed this outfit, an all-black band that was one of the early fixtures on the "Black Rio" soul scene... This is a historically pivotal album, though some may find the mainly-instrumental performances a bit breezy... The soul side is reminiscent of early Joe Cocker, perhaps, and the instrumental flights are not far removed from Brazilian jazz acts such as the Tamba Trio, et al. and also includes a bit of traditional material, such as modernized forro and the like. Compared to North American soul artists like Sly Stone or even Arthur Conley,this is pretty lightweight, but it does grow on you. Recently reissued on CD,this longtime fetish item is available again after decades of being out of print.
