About this item
Brazilian arranger and writer Hareton Salvanini was commissioned the soundtrack for the 1973 film "A Virgem de Saint Tropez" and what a fantastic job he did! This record could rival the best of KPM or Chappell library LPs. 'Copacabana Rock' starts with some psychedelic vibes and then evolves into a dancefloor bomb. 'Saint Tropez' is a rhythmic flute & electric piano-laden track with wah-wah guitars a plenty. There is room for some heavy tropical drumming on 'Perseguio' and 'Seios'. In need of some soft bossa with dabadaba vocals? Just check 'Espairecendo', an exquisite cut that sounds as if Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 had been produced by Arthur Verocai. While the jazzier and most experimental passages of the soundtrack belong to the wonderful 'Sao Paulo'.
