The Astrud Gilberto Album. LP12,99 €. Astrud Gilberto - The Astrud Gilberto Album LP. Astrud Gilberto. Bambule: Boombule - The Remixed Album. 2LP19,99 €. Beginner (Absolute Beginner) - Bambule: Boombule - The Remixed Album 2LP. Sublime.

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way). This is a marvelous album from the very early days of Bossa Nova, the first by Astrud Gilberto, when she sounded unbelievably sweet and innocent. The legend is that she didn't want to be a singer, but sang for her husband Joao Gilberto the composer and player, and he persuaded her to record. It sounds completely unspoiled and genuine.
