Erasmo Carlos, a true legend in Brazilian music with a wide spanning career full of gems. This record is one of his lesser known gems, but it’s worth listening to most of his stuff. Light in the Attic did a few reissues of the late 60’s early 70’s psychedelic stuff. Another giant no longer with us.

Wilko Johnson. What a legend. Weller amongst others copped all their moves and licks from him

Top comment on that video ‘Did Wilko have to practice in a very narrow hallway?’ :joy:

Lead and rhythm at the same time. Some skill.
I’ve often imagined how amazing it must’ve been in that era running from Dr Feelgood/Eddie & The Hotrods through to Madness to be packed into some north London boozer absolutely rocking

P.S though it would have been more of a waddle as I would have been 2
