1995 CD reissue.
Clube Da Esquina, Milton Nascimento/Lô Borges, "This may very well be the greatest album ever made; It compares favorably to 'Pet Sounds,' 'Sgt. Pepper' and other records which are typically awarded that distinction.
Though legendary among heads, it's criminally and tragically unknown to the wider public (outside of Brazil) for such a tremendous album: Unsurprisingly, the mainstream or 'indie' music press is too busy lionizing our UK/US gothic genius period beyond all reason to notice even the very strongest music made elsewhere in the world. Furthermore, there is no singular mastermind or troubled visionary/control-freak here (and we all know how much music journalists love a focal point), though a teenage Lo Borges contributes several highlights. Crucially, this album is the product of the organic collusion that occurs between several precociously talented musical personalities." 21 tracks.
