UC254 a/b – Forgotten Portuguese Nuggets, pt. 2

Nearly 6 years ago, I posted the first part of "Forgotten“ Portuguese Nuggets* which, of course, picked up where the “official” Portugal comps (i.e. "The Wild 60's Sounds From Portugal" and "Portuguese Nuggets Vols. 1  - 3") had left us. So I am proud to present this follow up featuring 50 more forgotten i.e. uncompiled tracks you might never have heard (a few tracks of the major groups have appeared on anthologies which are difficult to find tho unless you live in Portugal). You might say Portugal groups mostly miss the rough edge of Garage sounds, and you might be right. On the other hand this goes also for the Zombies, the Searchers, the Hollies, and many more. Tho’ many (like Fernando Conde, Walter Behrend, Daniel Barcelar, Victor Gomes, Démonios Negros) try  hard and get very close to the target, mostly you will hear a kind of softer, may I say sweeter (which does NOT MEAN lame ass!) and more romantic approach from Portugal Combos, often with unusual riff changes and melody patterns. Put some groups from the old colonies in the mix, like from Angola or Mozambique, and you’ll add good southern vibes to the Beat, pardon Yé Yé.  I think the 1,2, 3 Red Ligh version by Pop 5 Incorporated shows quite well what I want to say. You might welcome the 8 pg booklet, I tried to sum up the groups’ bios and discographies and dig deeper for band pics (national discs came mostly as 4-track EPs in glossy covers!).
Special thanks go out to blogspots osreisdoyeye.blogspot –IÈ IÈ (guedelhudos.blogspot)  -  Regresso ao Passado (notaspassadas.blogspot)  -   musicasdosanos60.blogspot – musicaapretoebranco.blogspot – and to Carlos Santos & Luís Futre and to Youtube channels GoncaloMoreno66 – Portugal Vinyl.  Finally we have to thank Victor Queiros, (guitarist of Os Electrònicos., Os Concas, ecc).

Thanks, esp for the re-up of vol. 1! I may not understand the words most times, but I like hearing the music and the enthusiasm of the makers of the music. Keep up the good work!
