BrazilOnGuitar says: Baden is an outtake album from the
Tristeza on Guitar sessions in July 1966.
They are alternative takes with slight variations e.g. in Das Rosas or Round Midnight
and unused songs like Canto de Ossanha or Lamento, one title was named differently.
They have a very different sound. The SABA recording sound have a stronger bass sound, probably according
to the musical taste of producer Joachim E. Berendt. The sound of the Brazilian Elenco pressing sounds more
intimate and personal, without the strong bass sound on all instruments.
Thus it is not a simple re-pressing of the famous SABA record, but shows a certain independence, reaching uniqueness.
This is emphasised by using rare pictures, Baden Powell ether with Herbie Mann, who did not take part in the recording
session, and a less typical PR picture showing Baden doing a chord spanning six frets.
Baden is a well-done outtake album, unfortunately the only in his discography. BOG recommends listening to both
recordings, if possible the Japanese CD version of Tristeza on Guitar and the Baden-reissue from 2003
(whose tracklist is wrong, Sarava instead if Samba de Bencao, furthermore there is a graphical mistake in
the front cover).
