From Brazil, 1977. 450 numbered LPs, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "'Everything began in 1977 when the poet, Antônio de Pádua Carvalho invited me to create melody for his poetries. At that time I was lead guitarist of the band The Gentlemen (a garage northwest group that included Zé Ramalho, who released the wonderful DLP together with Lula Cortez in one of his line-ups and recorded a rare LP and one 45). For this unique project we invited Zé Ramalho, the musician and composer Elísio Alexandrino (Golinha), to control the four-channel tape recorders the musician Enilton Araújo, the twelve string viola arrangements were done by Irapuan (Pupu), drummer Edmilson (Crauna), percussion by special guest Zé Crisólogo, and Hugo Filho (Hugo Leão) on nylon guitar,bass, keyboards and art direction.' This LP is really special, Brazilian charm and poetic words. Even in Brazil, an incredible rare album, only 500 pressed, given to friends and sold in shops -- the first private pressing in this country. If Sacros, Lula Cortez, Mutantes and El Congreso is something you like, you will love this one. Lots of folk elements which devolve in twisted endings. Something you want to play to your new girl on a crazy summer night. And for you guys in N.Y. with Brazilian roots (Arto Lindsay) this is something you should play at your next party. A great album this is."
