VJQC Score: 97% 
Tim Maia – Tim Maia (1977)
Get It On Vinyl –>> http://bit.ly/TimMaia1977

The 1977 album from legendary Brazilian artist, Tim Maia. A fusion of soul, boogie, disco and MPB, featuring ‘E Necessario’. Maia released over 30 albums during his extensive and well-publicized career, touching on funk, bossa nova, disco, MPB, rock, soul and jazz. He was a driving force behind the introduction of soul, funk and disco from the USA into Brazilian music styles and was hugely influential in the ‘Black Rio’ movement in Brazil in the early ’70’s. This, his 1977 album, that epitomizes that fusion of sounds and styles. ‘E Necessario’ has been a favorite of ours for many years; included on our Brazilian Beats Brooklyn compilation and released as part of our Brazil 45’s series.

Skull Snaps – Skull Snaps (1973)
Get It On Vinyl –>> http://bit.ly/VJSkullSnaps

An oft-sampled BEAST of a funk/soul digger classic, reissued by Mr. Bongo! Record collectors, producers and crate diggers like a good creation myth, and Skull Snaps’ self-titled ‘debut’ had it all. A mysterious funk trio, who recorded one album under a curious name, housed it in a sleeve that looked more like a proto-metal album, and released it through a label (GSF Records) that folded shortly afterwards? Everything pointed towards the Skull Snaps album as a single totemic object, packaged in a way that predicted it’s own disinterment almost twenty-five years later. For those who sampled it, myth maintenance was advantageous, both for their reputations and for their consciences. Likewise, an unsanctioned 1995 reissue on Charley Records removed the credits from the inner sleeve to further sever the record from it’s context – or perhaps because the label couldn’t quite face using the names of artists they had no intention of paying. Either way, owning the record was a right of passage, as Amir Abdullah once wrote: “If you don’t have Skull Snaps in your collection, your collection is weak.”
