Amazing Mr Bongo Brazilian 7″s mix by Chris Read

For those regular viewers of our Instagram “LIVE” session, you would have seen us playing some of Mr Bongo and his wildly successful Brazil series of classic and hard to obtain forty five records. Well, imagine our surprise when he got heavyweight DJ, amazing crate digger, and all around vinyl champ Chris Read (BBE) to put together a special mix.

The mix itself is 35 minutes of Chris’s favourite heavy Brazilian samba, funk, bossa, soul, and boogie hand picked series by the lads at Mr. Bongo that were put on 7″. If you’re not familiar, Mr. Bongo put together this series with this philosophy in mind: A seven inch of two rare and highly sought after sides that have were previously unreleased as singles or only available on LPs (and weren’t the best audio quality).
