A nice copy of a scarce (and pretty good) Sergio Mendes LP.
Background: Released in 1969, Ye-Me-Le was the sixth album by Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66.
Perhaps the Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66 sound was at last beginning to show signs of wear, for not only didn’t Ye-Me-Le produce any hits (“Wichita Lineman” reached a lowly number 95), but the album is also less enterprising and fresh-sounding than its predecessors. There is a surprising shortage of Brazilian material, which was always Mendes’ most valuable contribution in the long run, and more reliance upon routine covers of pop/rock standards like “Easy to Be Hard” and “What the World Needs Now.”
