Junior Mendes – Copacabana Sadia

Junior Mendes - Copacabana Sadia - Athens of the North

Luiz Mendes Jr or “Junior Mendes” was a ubiquitous figure in the Brazilian Soul / Funk scene of the 70s and early 80s, contributing to compositions for bands such as Banda Black Rio , Tim Maia, Sandra de Sá and many more. This, his only solo album has remained fairly off the map (unless your a collector of rare Brazilian vinyl). Despite his huge contribution to Brazilian music the LP has remained unissued until now on anything but the O.G LP, 35 years after its recording. So Athens of the North are putting that right with a remastered CD and LP.

 

Releases December 8th
