Sol Re Sol Records is happy to announce the reissue of Sidney
Miller’s lost classic Linguas De Fogo. Originally released in 1974,
Miller’s third album is one of the best Brazilian records of its time.
A seamless mesh of Brazilian pop, psychedelia and Bossa Nova,
Linguas De Fogo could almost be mistaken as Tropicalia—if Miller
hadn’t distanced himself from the genre.
Of Linguas De Fogo, Flabbergated Vibes writes, “The record is
dreamy, hazy, psychedlicized, progressive MPB that evokes early Lô
Borges, or Beto Guedes, or the first Nelson Angelo / Joyce album....
The arrangements are all great, balancing his relaxed, almost sedated
vocal lines against taught, double-tracked flute harmonies or funky
electric piano or keyboards or fuzzy electric guitars that sometimes
sound like it was plugged straight into the mixing board and using
the input as an overdrive.... This album is very deserving of that tag
of ‘lost masterpiece’ that gets thrown around a little too freely these
days.”
Miller first received notice in 1967 when Nara Leão recorded five
of his songs (along with four by Chico Buraque, to whom Miller was
compared). This was soon followed by his own album and recordings
of his songs by Quarteto em Cy. He then contributed music to film
(many for his friend director Paulo Thiago) and plays (one of which he
collaborated on with Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil).
While his songs were recorded by Veloso, Leão, Quarteto em Cy,
MPB-4, Alaíde Costa and Gal Costa, Miller released only two more
albums in his lifetime, Linguas De Fogo being his last. That he did
not receive the acclaim his peers did was not due to his lack of talent.
Miller was incredibly shy; he loathed to take the stage and masked
his shyness with drugs and drink. He passed away young, at age 30 in
1980. How he died is disputed.
Though Linguas De Fogo is highly regarded among diehard Brazilain
music fanatics and the original vinyl pressing is much coveted,
Miller has been a secret pleasure yet undiscovered by the general
public. However, recently he has been rediscovered by a new crop of
Brazilian artists, and hopefully this release will further push interest
in his music.
