Ooh crackles - lovely. On a similar riff I've been meaning to post 'Gone' for 3 years and only got round to it today..
Gilberto plays on,The music is warm yet icey cold,I'm lost, I'm swaying,I feel quite a few years less old.
gee i wish i understood other languages - this is marvelous with just a hint of what's going on lyrically but just imagine....
ExistedAn Eldorado Negro in Brazil Existed As the glare of the sun of freedom has produced Reflected The light of divinity, the holy fire of Olorum Revived Utopia one for all and all for one Quilombo That all made with all the saints watching over Quilombo That all showered with all the weeping waters Quilombo That all fell, loving and fighting Quilombo We all still want both ExistedAn Eldorado Negro in Brazil Existed Lived, fought, fell, died, rose again Resurfaced Peacock so many colors, my dream Carnival Reborn Quilombo, now, yes, you and me Quilombo Quilombo Quilombo Quilombo
oh you little clever love - thankyou
Sterling work there from Dark Dance, for whom the soubriquet 'Dark Horse' would perhaps be more appropriate, given this and other recent revelations of his previously hidden talents.He beat me to the re-keying I'd planned of the English translation from the LP's inner sleeve, which I nevertheless will provide here as a further aid to understanding.Once there was a Black El Dorado in BrazilThere it was like a shaft of sunlight that liberty releasedIt was there, reflecting the divine light from the holy fire of Olorum*And there it relived the utopia of one for all and all for oneQuilombo - everyone built it, it took all the zeal of the saintsQuilombo - all of the waters of all of their tears irrigated itQuilombo - all fell, loving and fightingQuilombo - even today, all of us still want so muchOnce there was a Black El Dorado in BrazilIt was there, it lived, fought, fell, died and rose againIt rose again, a peacock of all colours, the carnival of my dreamsAnd was born again Quilombo, now it's you and meQuilombo - everyone built it, it took all the zeal of the saintsQuilombo - all of the waters of all of their tears irrigated itQuilombo - all fell, loving and fightingQuilombo - even today, all of us still want so much.*Olorum is the supreme divinity in the Yoruba religion, the master of the heavens.I thank you.
I have that album on vinyl, though I thought Vol. 2 was better.
Haven't got Vol.2 - must seek it out, ta.
