A post-Tropicalia masterpiece from one of the movements key figures and true legends of Brazilian music, Gal Costa.
Features a stellar line up of musicians including Gilberto Gil, Arthur Verocai, Dominguinhos, Roge 769;rio Duprat and Tenorio Jr. amongst others. Replica original Gatefold including the cover that was banned by the Brazilian military government in 1973 during the brutal dictatorship. India includes the incredible Pontos De Luz as sampled by Kaytranada on Lite Spots and one of our favourite Brazilian songs of all time. A wonderful album from start to finish, touching on MPB, folk, jazz, funk and rock with strong Tropicalia and Nordestino influences throughout.
For its 50th anniversary, we knew we had to do something special, so we enlisted the sensational mastering and lacquer-cutting engineer Miles Showell from Abbey Road to cut a half-speed master for a beautiful spacious sound.
The album is housed in its original replica gatefold cover with an OBI. There is also an insert with an interview, and an A2 poster exclusive to this release.
R.I.P. Gal Maria da Graca Penna Burgos Costa, your light shines on.
