I recently heard on a music podcast of a tribute LP vinyl album to Emerson Fittipaldi that was recorded in the early 1970's in Brazil.
The only information I have been able to find is that music producer Marcos Valle organised the project, and legendary Brazilian jazz-funk band Azymuth recorded a track called "Azimuth" for the project.

Does anyone have any further information, eg an album cover, track listing, etc?

Have their been any other tribute albums recorded for racing drivers?

Don't know about an album, but Niki Lauda has long had his own tribute drinking song - which I heard sung by a group of contemporary F1 drivers in a Suzuka karaoke cabin a few years ago! Not in great taste, but as I understand it Niki himself doesn't mind. This Swiss version is the best I could do on youtube...



And then there's Jacques Villeneuve!

Not a tribute album, but translations of two songs dedicated to Fangio are buried deep in the "Cars in Songs" thread:

And apropos of nothing I was TV channel surfing a few months ago and spotted Emmo on what appeared to be the Brazilian version of "Can't Cook, Won't Cook". D'you think he needs the money?

Don't know about that 70s tribute album, but Emerson is certainly the only driver to have had a Beatles song rewritten and recorded for him by its original composer. Classic.
