    Sergio Mendes And The New Brasil '77 LP (1977)

    Elektra

Ranked #187 in the Soul Strut 200

Before the days of Youtube and before the days of streaming services, folks used to lurk on the Soul Strut message board hoping to discover the next lost vinyl treasure for sampling and/or DJ purposes.  Occasionally, to throw people off, contributors would start joke threads praising records like this claiming it was rare and full of "ill breaks".  Needless to say, it made a lot of lurkers rather excited to find a Sergio Mendes And The New Brasil '77 LP with the soccer player cover in the $1 bin only to be quite disappointed when they got home and unveiled the latin disco cheese.  Gotcha!
