YouTube Pick of the Week #2 - The German Elis Regina Special (1970s)

As the host of a weekly radio show, I am always on the lookout for new material, even though I have a very extensive music collection. Fortunately, I have found that YouTube is an amazing resource and a great way to supplement my own repertoire.

Of course, not everything I find on YouTube is suitable for radio, and so I've decided to share some of those things on this blog so that it'll be more than just a repository of old shows. 
Our second pick of the week is an Elis Regina Special from the 1970s Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Brazilian  singers of all time, she certainly deserves to be recognized as one of the most versatile voices of her generation, as evidenced by this short and comparatively tame set. Also on the bill are Tunisian-born singer Roberto Blanco and  French composer and pianist Michel Legrand.

Partial list of songs: 

Samba do Aviao (Jobim)
Roda (Gilberto Gil)
Cinema Olimpia (Caetano Veloso)
Bala Com Bala (Joao Bosco-Aldir Blanc
Pedro Pedreiro (Chico Buarque) Sung in German by Roberto Blanco
Comunicacao (Edinho-Helio Matheus)
Casa No Campo (Ze Rodrix)
Upa Neguinho (Edu Lobo)
Nega do Cabelo Duro (TBA)
Black is Beautiful (TBA)
Duet with Michel Legrand - Song list TBA.

 Check back for updates and to find out who will be our next featured artist! It'll be the last show of the month, so it'll be broadcast entirely in Portuguese!
