Negro É Lindo (1971). In 1969, Jorge Ben re-signed to Philips Records after a four-year leave from the label due to creative differences and recorded his self-titled sixth album. It featured songs performed with Trio Mocotó as his backing band; Ben had met the vocal/percussion group while touring the nightclub circuit in São Paulo in the late 1960s. The. band's members were Fritz Escovão (who played the cuíca), Nereu Gargalo (tambourine), and João Parahyba (drums and percussion)  . Fôrça Bruta has a pervasive sense of melancholy, according to Brazilian music scholar Pedro Alexandre Sanches.

This album was done the year after Jorge ben decided to go back to his home recording company (Philips/Mercury)

c'mon, someone pull their finger out and give us a proper repress of this, please!!

Brick my own
This is one of Jorge Ben's best albums, he's at (or at least near) the top of his game as a songwriter and performer... a timeless classic for sure. I especially love the string arrangements on this album.However, I much prefer the stereo mix available on subsequent editions of this album to the mono mix on this first pressing. As someone who usually favors mono mixes from this era of music when stereo was a relatively new thing, i have to say this album is an exception. In this case I would definitely recommend the repress from 1975 over this one to anyone who is looking for an early Brazilian edition of this album, as it has the earliest stereo mix.

Do the stereo mixes differ from eachother? The Japanese one is probably nice but not sure about the mixPs why is the mono not as good? Too closed?

I also have this 1975 Stereo version you are talking about and the sound quality is exeptional. However, a friend of mine has a clean Mono copy from 1970 and belive it or not, it is actually a tick better. Despite the fact that this record has a lot of players, one could believe that Stereo mix would fit the instrumentation better, but comparing the two editions the opposite was true to both of us.. I have also compared to the 4Men With Beards reissue and that one is so crap (bass completely cut out! / no dynamics!) that you would not even recognise this album as the true classic that it actually is. If you have the 1975 Stereo count yourself lucky, it is very very satisfying. I will be looking out for a Mono copy as well, but this is nothing urgent.
