"Focusing on the early '70s heyday of Jorge Ben's long and prolific career, Samba Nova was originally compiled in 1976 to give North American audiences an overview of one of South America's greatest singer/songwriters. Now expanded to include two more of Ben's best-loved songs from the era ('Que Maravilha' and the original version of 'Taj Mahal,' notoriously borrowed by Rod Stewart for 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy'), this collection brims with the cream of the crop from Ben's first five studio LPs of the 1970s. With massive classics like 'Oba, Lá Vem Ela," "Caramba!... Galileu da Galiléia,' and 'Morre o Burro Fica o Homem,' this is not only the perfect introduction to one of Brazil's greatest artists but an engrossing listen for all fans of modern samba."
