Athens Of The North
Luiz Mendes Jr or “Junior Mendes” was a ubiquitous figure in the Brazilian Soul / Funk scene of the 70s and early 80s, contributing to compositions for bands such as Banda Black Rio , Tim Maia, Sandra de Sá and many more.
This, his only solo album, “Copacabana Sadia” has remained fairly off the map (unless your a collector of rare Brazilian vinyl). Despite his huge contribution to Brazilian music the LP has remained unissued until now on anything but the O.G LP, 35 years after its recording.
So Athens of the North are putting that right with a remastered CD and LP.
