Tim Maia Videos

This "new" video is a revelation as it captured Tim right during his indoctrination in the Universe in Disenchantment cult as evidenced by his wearing normal clothes and playing songs from his earlier albums (Gostava Tanto de Voce) as well as his new composition "Que Beleza" from the Rational album.

This video is pretty poor quality but has Tim playing a song each from his third and fourth LPs as well as a jam session with what appears to be Nana Vasconceles on Congas and Tim on drums.

This one is from the made-for-TV special that TV Globo made about Tim a few years back. Jump ahead to 1:08 for the best footage in existence of Tim during his cult phase.

Roberto Carlos Videos - 1960s

This one's kinda long, but what a treat to see Rio from this vantage point and it almost looks like Roberto is actually piloting the helicopter. This is from his 1967/68? film "Roberto Carlos em Ritmo de Aventura" (Roberto Carlos in the Rhythm of Adventure). Ah, to be a teen idol in late 60s Rio de Janeiro!

It looks like this one is from the same film, but I'm not sure. I love the set on the roof a sky-scraper and Roberto's cape is sooo tight!

Really cool version from the movie (I'm guessing) "Roberto Carlos e Diamante Cor de Rosa" that includes a slightly different version of this song which was also on the S/T 1969 album.

A live, but poor quality television performance of "Nao Vou Ficar" from 1971.

My buddy Greg mentioned this tune as being from the above mentioned movie, but doesn't appear on the soundtrack. Here we have Roberto, Erasmo and Wanderlea cruising around in a jeep singing this song, which translates "I need to know how to live." I repeat, to be a teen idol in late 60s Rio de Janeiro!

A bizarre musical montage from one of Roberto's movies.

The Amen Break

This is one of the more interesting music-related videos I've seen in quite awhile. I love the thoroughness of it and also the aesthetic of using a vinyl recording as the actual document that the video is both and about and composed of. Well done!

Tim Maia - Por Toda a Minha Vida - Part 5

Peep the following super dope live footage:

Que Beleza begins at 1:05 - Crazy footage of Tim singing at a Racional Universe event with everyone dressed in white. Ridiculous!

Rodesia music video from 1976 album. Soul Train eat your heart out. Begins at 3:27

There's definitely many other great moments and even if you only understand a bit of Portuguese its a hell of life story and many of the anecdotes are very visual anyways. Here's a link to the first one and you can easily find the other 8 chapters.
