Originally released in 1967, Astrud Gilberto's BEACH SAMBA is one of the Brazilian songstress' classic albums. The bossa nova craze--ignited in 1963, by Gilberto herself, with her lovely, artless vocal on Stan Getz's "The Girl from Ipanema"--was winding down. The album sees Gilberto stretching beyond her usual collection of bossa novas and sambas, though the title track and "Nao Bate O Corocao" are two of her best, into relaxed, swinging versions of such pop standards as "Misty Roses" and "My Foolish Heart."
Perhaps the oddest inclusion is a cover of The Lovin' Spoonful's "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice," sung by Gilberto as a duet with her eight-year-old son, which is better than you might expect. Like the album as a whole, it's perfectly charming and delightful. Peculiarly, the CD ends with five tracks from Gilberto's classic 1966 album with the Walter Wanderley Trio, A CERTAIN SMILE, A CERTAIN SADNESS.
