  2. Are the multi-track masters 8-track (1-inch) or 16-track (2-inch) tapes? -- assuming that they can be located, at all!

    By the early '70s, 2" 16-track was taking over 1" as the multi-track reel-to-reel tape format for recording most music.

    My guess is that the next album, Pais was done on 16-track 2" tape.
    The record industry hasn't embraced any multi-track distribution format for the consumer market, alas. (There are multi-channel formats like 5.1, and 7.1 surround.)

    I'm extremely excited by this. Like Mike, STILLNESS is my favorite Brasil '66 album. I can listen to it all the way through - Unlike most of other B'66 Sergio's lead vocal cuts, "Sometimes In Winter" is beautiful, and Lani's vocals are especially tender and haunting.

    The (superior IMHO) 45 version of "For What It's Worth" is always worth a re-post:

    Found it at a flea market for $2. I'd never heard this album of theirs before then...but: it's been (now) one of my top three B'66 albums (behind Equinox and ahead of Look Around!).
    It was such a radical departure from the usual, lounge/Bossa Nova style (almost like Sergio went "all Topanga Canyon" suddenly!); however, that shakeup makes it fascinating. I loved the groove of "Righteous Life" the moment it started (the way Lani changes inflections so effortlessly -from girlish cuteness to sultry jazz- is the best testament to her vocal talent...like she can affect the persona of different singers all at once).

  5. ... or is that, more "Laurel Canyon." (You probably know better than me.) Most of those folk-rock singer-songwriters were in Laurel Canyon in the early '70s, right? (I'll do some googling now. : )

    Lani had mentioned having liked some folk (or, she called it "Folk-Rock") music in the mid-1960s. She wasn't just into Jazz.
    In a way, the folk elements (acoustic 12-string guitar) on this last album that she did with Sergio segues (serves as a nice bridge into) into the choice of songs that she did on her first solo albums.
