10 years of legal debacles later comes the release of Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia. The compilation is part of Luaka Bop’s World Psychedelic Classics series and is out on October 2, and introduced the Brazilian legend to the US audience.
If it weren’t for his onstage heart attack in 1998, Tim Maia would be ringing in his 70th birthday on September 28 (tomorrow). In celebration of Maia’s upcoming birthday, Luaka Bop is hosting worldwide birthday festivities including tribute shows, DJ sets and live performances. Folks can find the skinny on these events on Tim’s Facebook page.
On the new release, you’ll find recordings spanning the 1970s, which include the songs he wrote for his spiritual cult of sorts called Energia Racional. Enjoy the full stream of some glittery and groovy Brazilian psychadelia.
