Good to see some love for Duo Ouro Negro.
That’s probably their best album.
If you like the song Upa Neguinho,
consider Elis Regina’s version as well as Edo Lobo’s.
You can hear both of them sing in this clip (but, not together unfortunately).
Lobo’s version is right in the middle.



Elis Regina live version.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but it's a start. These were artists I grew up listening to in the 70s-80s because of my Dad. He was a big Country fan, so a lot of these artists are burnt into my memory because of him. But his all-time absolute favorites were Merle Haggard and George Jones. It was Merle, George and then everybody else.

Merle Haggard
George Jones
Johnny Cash
Hank Williams Sr.
Willie Nelson
Waylon Jennings
Marty Robbins
Lefty Frizzell
Eddy Arnold
Faron Young
Roger Miller
Buck Owens
Jim Reeves
Ray Price
Conway Twitty
Vern Gosdin
Don Williams
Charley Pride
Tom T. Hall
Statler Brothers
Bellamy Brothers
Alabama
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Tammy Wynette
Loretta Lynn
Dolly Parton
Patsy Cline

Just came across a duplicate playlist of Time-Life's Golden Age of Country that some kind soul compiled and uploaded. Fun.

I'm listening to Kathy Smith's album, "2", from 1971. In about half songs, Kathy sounds like a fairly demure folky; I like much better the faster songs, where there's a slight hint of some unbridled direction that she never quite took:-

Welcome to MB, Calluna!

Your Dead, Drake, and Dylan albums are great favourites of mine too! Here are a couple of recs you might like because they are equally, consistently good and from the same era:-
Blue - Joni Mitchell
An Evening With - Dando Shaft
Dust Bowl Ballads* - Woody Guthrie
Whales And Nightingales - Judy Collins
Basket of Light - Pentangle

* This one was recorded in 1940, on 78 r.p.m! Re-issued in 1964 I think

I believe this is Lithuanian. There isn't much info out there on this group. All I know if the bassline that kicks in after a minute is fire.
