88 and finally out on Saturday. Lots of loving tributes from his contemporaries and fans. Just a rather sour and grudging acknowledgement from Brazil’s right-wing president. I’ve avoided posting the obvious clip, even though it’s a beautiful thing, especially the full album version where he sings it first in Portugese before his missus gives us the English translation.
Brazilian guitarist/singer Mario Bakuna dedicated his set at the pub earlier this evening to his memory.
