It's interesting to read the reviews of this album here, as they seem mostly to be from people who either discovered Sergio with this album or were not that familiar with Sergio's breakthrough group, Brasil '66. Among diehard Brasil '66 fans, the two Bell albums (this and "Vintage '74") represent a transitional sound, and for many fans of this ilk, not a completely satisfactory one.

I for one "followed" Sergio throughout the many stylistic changes of his career and while "Love Music" was obviously an attempt to re-establish Sergio on the Top 40 charts (sadly, it failed miserably--"Love Music" the single only "bubbled under") after his increasingly poor selling last Brasil '66 and Brasil '77 albums for A&M, it's still a worthwhile melding of Sergio's propulsive rhythm section blended with a now younger and more soul-inflected vocal sound due to the introduction of sunny-voiced Bonnie Bowden. As long as you don't expect "another" Brasil '66 record.

While Brasil '66 is noted for its sophistication and multi-cultural genre busting efforts, "Love Music" is basically good, old fashioned MOR adult contemporary clothed in some exotic percussion. The arrangements are uniformly lush (Alcivar's especially, as he attempts to introduce some unusual harmonic touches in otherwise straightforward tunes like "Where is the Love?"), the vocals smooth, but the overall impression is (at least for a lot of Brasil '66 fans) a little bland. Part of this is due to the fact that there are no Brasilian tunes on this album, virtually the only time in Mendes' career that this happened.

Musically speaking this a cohesive and delightful selection of songs played by the master Sergio Mendes and his great line-up. Absolute ear candy!! What takes away from this music is the horrible mastering job. I paid over $30.00 for this cd, and it sounds like it was dubbed from overmodulated tapes....it's hard to listen to ...it sounds like the worn vinyl counterpart sitting in my sisters album case. This is not fair representation for Sergio Mendes who would have a fit if he knew his music was being heard like this. Very poor for a (remastered) ha! ha! Japanese import..shame on BMG!! I intend to get a refund on this one!

In my opinion, this is the best album of the awesome group of Sergio Mendes (and Brasil '65, '66, '77, '88, '99 and 2000) whose music was greatly influenced by Bossa Nova legend, the late Antonio Carlos Jobim. I had it in an album format when it first came out and have been wishing to have it on CD but it was so rare and not available until 2003. At long last, the wait was over...thanks to BMG-Japan!

The material selected in this recording is so impressive from James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," Burt Bacharach/Hal David's "Walk The Way You Talk" to Paul Williams' "I Won't Last A Day Without You." Most of these songs were listed on Top 40 Pop Chart. What made these songs more special are their unique interpretations, the perfect blend of the ladies' lush vocals and the invigorating and vibrant rhythms that are so typical of Sergio Mendes' innovative arrangements. Adding to the beauty of the songs are the flawless arrangements on strings, horns and woodwinds by a fine jazz/composer/arranger and one of my favorites, Tom Scott; and another great talent, Bob Alcivar, who did the fabulous rhythm section arrangements.

The tracks (in order of my favorites) are the following:

"Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" - a love song composed and sung originally by my all-time favorite singer/songwriter/guitarist James Taylor. Gracinha Leporace's rendition is so wonderful and with her enthralling voice, she made this song as the best interpretation by a female vocalist. Of course for male vocalist, James Taylor's original is still the greatest. I heard another version from Kevin Mahogany and it's also awesome. And most recently a very nice version from David Sanborn's latest CD "Closer" with vocals by Lizz Wright.

This is a must have album from Sergio Mendes. It is the reference point for modern latin pop of the 70s. The vocals are only eclipsed by the instrumentalists, and the result is a seamless trip to relaxation. The tracks mix current (1973) hits with some beautiful songs that can be found only on this album. This was one of 2 or 3 favorite albums in my collection, and thankfully, we finally have a re-mastered Japanese import to enjoy on CD.

Sergio Mendes & The Brazil 77 came on the heels of his highly popular Brazil 66 group.Only difference was they were

covering more earthy R&B orientated material from the early

1970's such as "Where Is The Love","Don't Let Me Be Lonely

Tonight",and Johnny Nash's classic "I Can See Clearly Now".All

are done in Mendes's classic latin-pop style except I must say

Johnny Nash's original is so illuminating that it sort of

wipes the floor with this one.The title track-a little Stevie

Wonder and a little Donny Hathaway,is the best track on this

album and one will also note the addition of two famous future musicians-Paulo Da Costa on percussion and Laudir Olivier(from

the second generation Chigaco)conga drums.Part of a series of worthy successors to the Brazil '66 material!
