  1. Thanks Roburt makes sense re the 33 1/3 in Brazil, no one here as really been able to answer correctly, though money was always muted as the reason. But unlike the rest of S America not a great deal was released here during the 60’s. Number of reasons, Brazil has and had a massive music industry of it’s own Samba/Pagode/Sertaneja etc etc., plus it’s own “soul” stars like Tim Maia who recorded for Stax. Soul was always a niche though. This was compacted as only 2 radio stations played regular international music at that time Liberdade and Diffusora, so there was very little exposure. Party cities -just about every city imho played a mix but less than 10% was imported ( source my wife who’s Brazilian and was clubbing late 60’s/70’s). Biggest club sound in 68 here-Wooly Bully ! Even Motown never cracked Brazil, they had 5 different distributors during this time Fermata, Rozenblit, Mocambo, Ebrau & Toptape and sold sod all hence the frequent changes and only started releasing under it’s own steam in the mid 70’s. By then things were changing and the military government was relaxing hence the explosion of stuff from then onwards. In the meantime I shall continue looking for Chubby Checker YJDK
