"Radio Mindelo features Cesaria Evora's long lost radio recordings from the 1960s, made by the Cape Verdean station Radio Barlavento. These twenty-two tracks document the first tentative steps in the barefoot diva's long and distinguished career. Listen to Radio Mindelo and you will discover the voice of Evora's youth, a voice in which you will recognize the same phrasing, the same intonations and the same serenit4/12y it has today. However, the rough production quality of the original tapes and the spontaneity of the songs create a special feeling of discovery, of hearing the sound of a legend before the legend existed." Deluxe hardbound packaging, including a 32 page book of full-color photos and liner notes in English and French.
