A Funky Feijoada

Some vintage Brazilian psychedelic soul for you today. Both tracks can be found on an excellent compilation called "Soul Braza" that came out about ten years ago on the No Smoke label - assuming you can find the record itself that is, as it seems to be out of stock everywhere.

"Vou Procurar O Meu Lugar" - Tony e Frankye

"Eclipse Total" - Ely

As far as I know Ely has no connection to the charming Fenland city of the same name, unlike Andrew Eldritch of The Sisters of Mercy who was born there 63 years ago next week. Happy impending birthday Mr E!


  1. You'll be delighted to learn that I actually made a feijoada last night, but instead of meat with the beans it was cabbage carrot and mushrooms

    1. George (I presume). If you change half the ingredients does it still count as a feijoada?

    2. Assuming the "feij" part derives from feij√£o (beans) then the cabbage etc would have to go.
