There's some massive names here from Latin/Bossa/Samba/MPB as you'd expect when dealing with a 26 track compilation of Jorge Ben cover versions. Jorge Ben you'll recognise as the guy who wrote two of the biggest tracks you'll ever likely to hear on two extremes of dancefloor culture, the 'original' of Rod Stewart’s ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy?’ and the go-to Latin track ‘Mas Que Nada’.

Originally released on only CD in 2009 when vinyl was a dying medium for LPs, Mr Bongo have now had the bright idea to release on a double vinyl set which features Elza Soares (the aforementioned 'Mas Que Nada'), Wilson Simonal (you gon't get much bigger than these guys) plus Osmar Milito, Sonia Santos ('Speed' is one of many top tracks), Doris Monteiro, Doris Monteiro, Os Originais do Samba and many more. 

Not surprised to have already seen Dom Servini with one of these in his record bag but you know all ya jazz dance guys will have it too; Peterson, Forge, Beadle (Kev) and I'd expect Ashley (Beedle) to have one too! Whistles Cuíca and dancing guaranteed, what ya waiting for?
