Sunny Day. I haVE the original vinyl record and deided to get the CD. Not totally remastered.
But still sounds great. Very rare CD ,enjoy! One person found this helpful. Format: Audio CD. But if you want SERIOUS funk you'll have to go further then the light latin inflect "Shakara" and the monster title track that ends up album,with some of the most dangerous funk rhythm guitar you'll hear from the music of Known for his good taste in cover songs Sergio again chooses wisely,focusing this time on songs that were unsung classics but not obvious hits-in this case a bouncy version of Elton John's "Where To Now St.
Whatever the case this is a great album! What an oasis this album was for long-time Mendes fans, after the relatively barren Bell and early Elektra years. Sergio, working with a stellar rhythm section including Wonderlove's Michael Sembello , and the superb vocals of Lise Miller, Marietta Waters and Bonnie Bowden, expertly delves into a "heavier" Latin sound almost Santana-like at times while preserving the lighter Bossa Nova sound for which he justifiably became world-famous.
But Sergio and company sound ecstatic in this release, a great reworking of the classic Brasil '66 sound coupled with mids multi-keyboards and a more propulsive rock beat, and that sound is contagious. Highly recommended to all Sergio fans. This is an infectious, rockin' pre-disco era Brazil '77 album. As in the best Sergio Mendes albums, the pop tunes are kept to a minimum and the joyful Brazilian stuff rules!

Soul, funk, and quiet storm standards -- not hardcore Brazilian standards -- must be applied. And from a '70s soul standpoint, Homecooking is a decent, though not remarkable, effort. Nothing exceptional or mind-blowing occurs, but Mendes ' Brasil '77 is pleasant and likable on material that ranges from the above-mentioned Gil and Donato songs to Elton John 's "Where to Now, St.

Loose Ends feat. All ingredients are equally distributed in the melting pot, no instrument towers above the other. Melodious and phantasmagoric, it is one of the strongest efforts on Home Cooking. Where To Now St. Peter kicks off side B, a piano-oriented piece of over four minutes, but a tad too cinematic for my taste. The funk guitars and female vocalists are there alright, but the timbre reminds of a crossover between The Peanuts and The Beatles.
Cut That Out resides in similar climes, but sports a boon in the shape of a swinging metropolitan aura and sleazy bass guitars, oh, and car horn organs!The Swinger from Rio () Maria Moita, Sambinha Bossa Nova, Batida diferente, Só danço Samba, Pau Brasil, The Girl from Ipanema (Garôta de Ipanema), Inútil Paisagem, Vivo sonhando, Primavera, Consolação (Instrumental), O Morro não tem Vez In the Brazilian Bag! - The Sérgio Mendes Trio (
