Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Caetano Veloso (vocals, guitar); Toni Costa (guitar, background vocals); Marcelo Costa, Armando Marcal (percussion).
  • Recorded at Vanguard Studios, New York, New York in September 1985.
  • Package includes lyric sheet in both Portugese and English.
  • Brazilian Tropicalia pioneer Caetano Veloso's third album is the sound of a man at odds with his place in the world. The 1971 release documents his first experiences with political exile in England. "London, London" finds him unable to find a spiritual center ("I'm wandering round and round here, nowhere to go"), while "Maria Bethania" is a tribute to the kindred spirit he left back home, as he begs her to "please send me a letter." The mood for most of the album is a downcast one, framed by spare, acoustic arrangements; on such tunes as "In the Hot Sun of a Christmas Day" and the aforementioned "London, London," he almost seems to be ironically mocked by the sprightly flute that meanders gaily atop his vocals, sharply contrasting his tales of woe. It's a striking collection of tunes that documents a turning point in the life and career of one of Brazil's most important musical exports.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (7/00, p.133) - "...Proof both that the man was one of the finest talents his country had ever produced and that Tropicalia could be exported without losing its effects..."

Customer Questions & Answers
It states that this is LP/CD , does that mean that I would receive it in both formats? I only want the CD but if I have to buy the vinyl as well so be it. Thanks Vanessa - Customer question on 11/07/2018
Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. I've looked into this for you and this is the vinyl version, not the CD. I've asked our Regulatory and Compliance team to update the product page accordingly. Kind regards, Catherine
