Release Date:06/21/2019;Notes:Double LP version. Deluxe gatefold, tip-on sleeve. Born in 1949 in Recife (Brazil), Roberto de Melo Santos, despite a very light discography, is among the true icons of the Brazilian soul music under his artist alias, Di Melo. He's indeed only needed an eponymous album, released in 1975 on Odeon, to assert himself as a star in his native country, but also as a legend for all collectors and connoisseurs of the world. More than 40 years after it's release, this famous album sells for several hundred euros in it's original version, and even for the few reissues that were offered. Not very active since then, Di Melo however returned in 2016 with the album O Imorrível, released on the Brazilian label Casona Produções. It is then that a year later, came a meeting with the French group Cotonete. Florian Pellissier, founding member and keyboard within the band, tells the story: "On tour in Brazil with Cotonete, we had a few days off in Sao Paulo and I really hoped to make a collaboration with an important artist or band from the Brazilian funk scene. We had thought of Marcos Valle, Meta Meta, or Ed Motta... but Rafaela Prestes our Brazilian 'sound ingineer/genius' told me she'd worked with Di Melo for his recent comeback and gave me his number. No sooner said than done, as I'm a huge fan of Di Melo. The next day he arrived at our house with Jo, his wife, and Gabi, his daughter. He takes the guitar in front of us and gives us a private show of three hours. We cried the tears of joy. He had 400 original songs never recorded, a gold mine. On the same night, we started working the arrangements for two days, followed by a rehearsal and two small gigs in Sao Paulo. Immediately after, we recorded in the magical Epsilon B studio. This album is the summary of this moment, of these five days of madness spent together between 'the best band in the world' and the legend Roberto Di Melo - Simple, beautiful, Brazilian-French, human music..." Atemporal found it's final version in collaboration with Favorite Recordings and is presented as the genuine long-awaited follow-up to the classic Di Melo LPs.;Special Attributes:2 PACK
