Summary

We've been working on a Tim Maia album for 10 years.

This was to have been the next in our World Psychedelic Classics series that was to come out after the release of our Shuggie Otis album. However a 10 year negotiation with Tim Maia's estate slightly delayed our release.

Tim Maia was a huge star in Brazil. And everyone in Brazil has a story about him. The one we heard this week was Tim's Brazilian record label wanted to give him a present as he was selling so many albums. As Tim was Brazil's first soul singer the record label paid for him to record in America with the JB's (James Brown's band). When Tim got back to Brazil he told the record label "Unless you pay me $10,000 I'm going to erase the tapes". Andre Midanni, the label head, said "Tim, we paid for this as a present for you and it's not something we were planning on putting out. We can't give you $10,000." The tapes have never been found.

Here is a 12" of some of the tracks from our album. It's not priced particularly well, it's not packed to look like anything, there's only 400 of these things and it will probably be of interest to listeners who already know about Tim.

The full album will be out in October 2012 in celebration of what would have been Tim's 70 birthday.
