Release Notes
  • First ever reissue!

Luiz Mendes Jr or “Junior Mendes” was a ubiquitous figure in the Brazilian Soul / Funk scene of the 70s and early 80s, contributing to compositions for bands such as Banda Black Rio , Tim Maia, Sandra de Sá and many more. This, his only solo album has remained off the map (unless your a collector of rare Brazilian vinyl). Despite his huge contribution to Brazilian music the LP has remained unreleased until now, 35 years after its recording.
