Since its release in 1973, Ze Roberto’s debut single “Lotus 72 D” has become something of an in-demand item amongst collectors of soul-fired Brazilian “MPB”. In its original A-side form, the track is a carnival-ready slab of samba-soul brilliance rich in razor-sharp horn blasts, rich bass guitar, punchy hand-percussion and twinkling jazz piano solos. Roberto’s confident vocals take centre stage, inviting us towards the dancefloor. Over on the flip you’ll find a “Fast Version” of Roberto’s tribute to 1972 Formula 1 champ Emerson Fittipaldi. This has a slightly more dancefloor-centric tempo, an effect achieved when it was accidentally pitched up for inclusion on a 2001 compilation.
