Os Sambacanas - Fly Me To Brazil

The flying theme continues with a gem of easy listening, latin flavoured album from 1969 with an aeroplane themed cover.

So welcome aboard to some more in flight entertainment, we'll be cruising at 37,000 feet with some samba influenced chilled beats, putting a new twist on some very familiar songs of the late Sixties.

This was originally recorded in Brazil by Julio Nagib, who used authentic Brazilian instruments on these tracks. It was originally released as...

Meet Os Sambacanas - Sucessos da Juventude em Tempo de Samba

Then DJM (Dick James Music) re-released it in the U.K with the new aircraft cover as shown. "Apparently Julio Nageb met the DJM people at MIDEM music fair and they bought the rights" (thanks to Gary from the comments box at the loromix.blogspot link below for the extra information)
