180g Virgin Vinyl High Quality Pressing! Pure Analogue Audiophile Mastering!
Twelve Tracks Display The Richness of Baden Powell's Unaccompanied Guitar!


The acoustic guitar shares the same destiny as so many music companies: almost all of them dabble with the six strings at some point, many attempt to play entertaining harmonic roulette with it, but only a few really make the grade. Baden Powell belongs to the small circle of guitarists whose early virtuosity is perfectly combined with a keen sense of harmony. Powell demonstrates this special talent in his slow numbers in particular, in which broken chords are developed like a bud opening out to a blossom. He guides the listener cautiously through his melodies in that he makes a tiny pause before a harmonic change. Full timbre and lightness are not a question of what is written down on the manuscript but result from a powerful performance, as is shown by the totally un-Brazilian, gentle major-minor key version of the children’s song "Kommt Ein Vogel Geflogen".

Naturally, the wonderfully crafted, animated and bouncy bossas flow along easily. As befits the album’s title, the guitar is in the limelight here, driven on, held back, and then propelled forward by the rhythm group. The ballad "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce" is strongly recommended to whet your appetite for the bossa "Na Gafieira Do Vidigal".

"Around the time he was recording this LP, Baden married for the fourth time. He'd just finished a long and strenuous European tour and he'd spent a good part of his bread for daily, often hour-long telephone calls to Rio - calls to Marcia. Finally, two days after this record was in the can, the 17-year old Marcia's plane came in for a landing at Paris' Orly Field on a rainy, foggy December day. At the last minute the plane revved its motors and kept going - diverted to London because of weather. Baden stood at the airport, tears running down his face, fifty red roses in his hand, and said "This is the saddest hour of my life." That evening he was in no condition to play his scheduled concert, even though he knew Marcia would be arriving the next day from London by train...We now have 26 albums by Baden, but on none of them is he so "alone" in the literal and figurative sense of this word.  This record is loneliness, it's solitude that is the mood.  And it shows the richness of his unaccompanied guitar, which rightfully can be compared - as Don DeMichael has done - with that of a full orchestra." - from liner notes by Joachim E. Berendt
