  • 1. Noriel Viela – 16 Toneladas
  • 2. Juca Chaves – Take Me Back To Piaui

This is the third installment on the Mr Bongo Brazil 45's imprint.

Noriel Vilela's cover of Tennessee Ernice Ford's '16 Tons' was originally released in 1971 on Copacabana Records. Originally, this was a classic American pop-country-folk song from the 1940s and is highly sought after. It featured on his hard to find 'Eis o ome' LP, recently reissued (in 2002 and 2013).


Juca Chaves classic 'Take Me Back To Piaui' was released on 7" by RGE In 1970 and features on his album 'Muito Vivo' from 1972. Chaves was an active critic of the Brazilian military dictatorship, and like Veloso and Gil, was exiled in the early 1970s.

Strong and sought-after Brazilian magic across both cuts, now reissued.
