Ronnie Von - A Misteriosa Luta Do Reino De Parassempre Contra O Imperio De Nuncamais
+ 4 Bonus Tracks
Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von -- an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here -- strong echoes of British work of the time, but used in much more sophisticated ways than any Jovem Guarda acts -- never a simple copycat approach, but also never as arty as some of the Tropicalia recordings of the time either. Ronnie's voice has a depth that allows some nice changes in mood from track to track -- lightly lyrical one moment, a bit darker and more tripped-out the next -- bringing a sense of variety to the record that almost recalls Caetano Veloso during the time, but a bit more rockish overall. Titles include Atlantica, Dindi, De Como Meu Heroi Flash Gordon, Foi Bom, Rose Ann, Comeci Uma Brincadeira, and Mares De Areia. CD features 4 bonus tracks -- earlier singles that include Meu Bem, Paraiso, O Pequeno Principe, and Meu Mundo Parou.
