I don't know that she was actually mentioned at all. As I recall, there was even a blurring of lines between SMB66v1.0 and SMB66v2.0.Believe it or not, I only just ordered the DVD. Does Karen get a good mention?
I know she had a bad falling out with Sergio and the group over her relationship with Rubens so I can imagine Sergio might want to ignore her.
Of the female vocalists, only Lani and Gracinha were mentioned and featured in the doc.--none of the other vocalists were mentioned by name or referred to. All you saw were video clips of the other vocalists.
Good point there. I'm not much of a video person so I really don't have an interest in watching it, but I totally get it--the documentary becomes part of our collection and we hope that it provides insight beyond what we already know, and doesn't gloss over details. Yet, anything too in-depth will bore 95% of the viewers who remember "that 'Mas Que Nada' guy from the 60s" and just want to be entertained with an overview of his life, without the minor details...that would never sell, especially on any video channel selling airtime.It's true that only fans like us at the Forum care about the other vocalists, but I bet it's only people like us who are going to buy the DVD.
The singers in the 70s was pretty solid. Bonnie Bowden, Gracinha, Marietta Waters, Carol Rogers and Leeza (Lise / Lisa) Miller (for Homecooking and Sergio Mendes '83)After Sergio left Bell Records and Brasil '77 disbanded, the only real constants in his recording universe were himself and Gracinha (and even she wasn't on every record). Of course there were some people who were on a lot of records like Oscar Neves, Joe Pizzulo and a few others; but by and large he would surround himself with a different contingent of side players every time out. By the time he re-signed with A&M, he had become more like Quincy Jones, where every track would feature a different cast of characters, and even Sergio himself didn't play on every track.
When streaming, even if it’s a one-episode thing, I always click “episodes”. Frequently, the extras you would have found on DVD and Blu-Ray are there.I like watching the "making of" features that you find on a lot of movie DVDs and BluRays (although, with streaming being the new normal, that kind of thing is disappearing fast). I wish each album by our favorite artists had a "making of" feature online somewhere. I would have a lot of questions about Stillness, Primal Roots, and Crystal Illusions, in particular.
