    I know we go through periods of listening to one artist for a while, and then moving on, but my Gilberto Gil stage has lasted for about a month and a half now! Now I've decided to learn one of his CD's, so I think I'm gonna be listening to him for about another 2 or 3 weeks! :eek: Am I insane?

    When I lived in Brazil in the mid-1960s. Gilberto Gil was just becoming popular. His big first hit (that I knew of) was "Aquele Abraco" which I still like to this day. It is easy for me to see why you would listen to his music week after week.

    You might also want to check out a similar Brazilain artist (in fact they were friends) in Caetano Veloso. Both Gil and Veloso were considered kind of rebellious and daring in the lyrics of their songs. They weren't "mainstream" like Joan Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim. I liked all of them and still do.

    The album in question is the soundtrack for "Me, You,Them", although, I love alot of his stuff. What drew me to him about 15 years ago was the rebellious label.

    No, you are not insane, you merely recognize great music when you hear it.;)

    On the topic of Brazilian music, you might also check out Milton Nascimento. I'm a complete Nascimento freak. One of the most amazing voices in pop music.

    I picked up Donny Hathaway "Live" after reading about it here a few weeks ago and I now listen to it daily. Fantastic album.
