After the demise of LOS SHAKERS, brothers HUGO & OSVALDO FATTORUSO released in 1969 “La Bossa Nova de Hugo & Osvaldo”.
Here, they paid homage to the music they grew-up with: jazz, bossa nova and candombe but adding Beatlesque pop-psych and Brazilian/Latin sounds to the mix, following what they had already done with Los Shakers in songs like “Never Never” or “Adorable Lola”.
Cool covers of Burt Bacharach, George Harrison and candombe pioneer Manolo Guardia blend together with lovely self-penned songs and even new, bossa-styled versions from Los Shakers catalogue.
Recorded in 1968 mostly by Hugo and Osvaldo playing all the instruments by themselves, it was originally released in 1969 in a tiny edition of 400 copies, making it one of the most desirable collectable albums related to Los Shakers.
The missing link between “Toto’s Bar” and OPA’s “Goldenwings”?
