This week, I feature 2 extraordinary songs from Zé Gonzaga with vocals by Paulo Tito. Along with having a superb voice, Paulo Tito's albums from the 60s are some of the scarcest in forró. Psicodélico was written by the artist himself. Psicodélico's only psycedelic production stylization is the panning of the vocals and keys from the left to the right channel, which in the era of headphones, is a slightly annoying effect. Lua Luá is a gorgeous ballad written by Catulo de Paula. The Zé Gonzaga version is slower than the original. Lua Luá would have fit nicely on Gilberto Gil's albums from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Question: Did any forró artist ever release a psychedelic album?
