Product Details
Due to a popular demand, Far Out present the vinyl version of this great album by Arthur Verocai. The album will feature brand new artwork as well as the 8 of the best tracks (mastered by John Dent) from the 11 track CD giving all of you vinyl heads a unique listening pleasure.

Featuring excellent compositions from Arthur with guest musicians including Azymuth, and a 17 piece string section, 'Encore' is the highly anticipated follow up to Arthur's eponymous debut album from 1972.It sees Arthur joining the dots over 35 years to create a new classic of Brazilian music that, like his debut, combines Brazilian influences with his take on American soul and cinematic experimentation, and shows Arthur's sound is as poignant now as it was in the 70s.

Following on from Marcos Valle, Joyce and of course Azymuth, Arthur Verocai is the latest in a long-line of Brazilian musicians whose music is set to be introduced to a whole new legion of fans by Far Out. The story of 'Encore' of course begins with Joe Davis, Far Out's head honcho who stumbled upon Arthur's debut in a dusty record store in downtown Rio in the late 80s. At the time of its release in 1972 critics panned Arthur's debut and both the album and artist subsequently vanished into obscurity. Fast forward to winter 2004 and Joe's at the studio of Far Out Recording artists Harmonic 33 - aka production duo Mark 'Troubleman' Pritchard and Dave Brinkworth - playing them some of his favourite Brazilian albums. Dave recalls the moment Joe put on Arthur's debut, "As soon as the needle hit the record and we heard the fantastic arrangements, songs and sounds, Arthur completely blew our minds".

Three months later and Dave was in Brazil with Arthur Verocai, and the plans for what was to become 'Encore' were being laid down. Produced by Dave, 'Encore' sees Arthur on incredible form, the 35 plus years between the recording of his debut and this the follow-up just melting away as Arthur picks up the (conductor's) baton once again to create 11 epic tracks of stirring samba-soul and sublime cinematic movements that sees him creating a record to rival his debut.
