"A samba soul classic from Jorge Ben -- quite possibly his greatest album ever, and a true treasure through and through! The tunes explode with an amazing sense of energy -- driven by Jorge's great guitar and vocals, plus key percussive efforts from the Trio Mocoto -- whose sounds here are simply amazing, and create a unique undercurrent of funk. This is the album that set a whole generation on fire, and it's probably still one of the most-copied moments of Ben's long career. In contrast to the cerebral output of the Tropicalia camp in 1969, this album's much more visceral and personal -- yet no less revolutionary! First time on CD in the US -- and first time on CD in the world in over 15 years. Includes the classics 'Take It Easy My Brother Charles,' 'Pais Tropical,' and 'Que Pena.'"
