"Edu Lobo is one of the towering giants of Brazilian music to emerge out of the Bossa Nova scene in Brazil in the 1960s with this, his stunning debut album in 1965. Released on the seminal Elenco Records label, producer Aloysio de Oliveira enlisted the help of the greatest bossa jazz group ever, The Tamba Trio (led by Luiz Eça), to help launch the gifted singer, songwriter Lobo into the spotlight. As well as his own classic compositions (which he often wrote for singers such as Elis Regina), Lobo also collaborated with the greatest lyricists such as Vinicius de Moraes and the radical left-wing film-maker Ruy Guerra, to produce some of the most important songs in Brazilian music, songs such as 'Reza', 'Arrastao', 'Boranda' (all featured here) and many more. His complex music helping pave the way for the emergence of the new musical movement, Musica Popular Brasileira, which replaced Bossa Nova in the mid-1960s. This is a bespoke high quality box-edition CD of this seminal album with exact-reproduction artwork of the original album, never before released outside Brazil."
