Mad About Records present a reissue of Lu Renata’s self-titled album, originally released in 1971. Includes the killer funky “Faz Tanto Tempo”. Renata Lu is a bit of a mystery figure… She only made a few albums in the 1970s and sang backup on many more such Tim Maia and Nonato Buzar but for whatever reasons never seemed to make it into the MPB upper echelons. Debuted solo in 1971 on her self-titled album for Copacabana Records with a heavyweight fusion of US style soul and funk with added Latin percussion. This features Renata Lu singing over a hybrid samba/boogaloo backing track rich in jaunty bass, rasping horns and jazzy electric piano riffs. Rare LP finally reissued on a deluxe edition. One of the landmarks of funk carioca. 180 gram vinyl; deluxe hard-cardboard sleeve with obi.
