2006, Listen Recovery (Renz & Rich Spirit Revelli visit SAO PAULO, BR) our main object, records shopping and if money allow it, some cultural instruments. Our mission was to have fun and to experience the Sao Paulo living. We stayed at Dj Nuts’ apt. In Saude Sao Paulo, near Paulista Ave. (walking distance). As the days passed by Rich and I searched for the MPB as well as rarities. Our guide couldn’t be more knowledgeable about Brazilian Music and its History… So it was overwhelming the information giving to us in such short time… the connections from the early days of Bossa Nova to the psych Lps to Samba Rock… Disco 7 has been one of the main places where Nuts takes any visitor willing to pay well for records. Brazilian records aren’t cheap!… and the exchange currency is not the greatest… 2006 (2 reis per dollar) not much of a difference… but the food was cheap and amazing, so that helped out budget… During the visit, the best way to obtain address and spots for records shopping was to ask for a business card or phone number. So if you are going to Sao Paulo BRAZIL and your going for record shopping… This info might help you… still current to this date. SERTO!… Also I should mention, we where there for the purpose of BRAZILINTIME, B+’s 2nd film. Also, one of the scan tickets belongs to “Love Story”… a night club that caters the night-women in SP. We checked out since it was a funny buzz about it… anyhow… here are some scans from what I was able to fund during a shop clean-up. RECOVERY CRU!
Antiguedades: ALBUNS DE FIGURINHAS
DISCO 7 (ask for Carlinho) he’s the man!

End-of-the-night point for prostitutes, rent boys and associated partygoers (but not strictly confined to this demographic), Love Story has developed quite an international reputation thanks to the celebrities who’ve staggered in and out of its doors. Nick Cave regularly frequented it while living in Sao Paulo and British tech-house producers Layo & Bushwacka! named a track after a visit. Deafeningly loud electronic house music keeps the audience buzzed and hot, and more inspired patrons climb onto raised podiums to shake loose body parts around strip poles. With two floors and numerous bars at which drinks will set you back R$15 each. At some point you’ll likely have to broach the precarious subject of asking whether the person you’re chatting up is, ahem, working or not. Weekends can get busy, so you’ll have to face every partygoer’s usual quandry: How to arrive fashionably late—the party peaks between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m.—without risking an interminable wait in line. by Total SP Guide (link)
