Limited Edition Gold / Black Marbled Vinyl includes 16 page booklet with interview, x10 photos from the original recording sessions, and a poster. Gatefold, Tip On Jacket. 

A complete album masterpiece in every sense of the word, considered by many to be one of the greatest ever made, regardless of genre. 

Recorded at Studio Somil, Rio De Janeiro in 1972 the album was produced, arranged, and directed by the self-taught, Arthur Verocai. Previously he had worked on many records in various capacities, with artists including Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins and Celia, but this album gave him the chance to do his thing in its most pure form.

The 29-minute masterpiece, perfect in its arrangement and fusion of sonics, epitomises the sound of Brazil at the time; strings, guitars, pianos, break beats, bass lines, synthesizers, vocals from the wonderful Célia, Carlos Dafe and Oberdan (Banda Black Rio), plus percussion from Pedro Santos and Paulo Moura on sax. Bossa nova, samba, jazz, MPB, psychedelics and funk sit side by side effortlessly.

The album transcends the genre of Brazilian music, and in fact all genres. Highlighted in part by the number of artists that have sampled from it; MF Doom, Ludacris & Common, Little Brother, Jneiro Jarel aka Dr Who Dat?, Dibiase and Action Bronson amongst others.

The original Continental version of the album now fetches above $2000. Our definitive re-issue is an exact replica of the gatefold original LP and the source master is taken from the Continental tapes, re-mastered in 2012 under Arthur’s supervision.
