What a re-issue, big thanks to Litoral for unearthing this beauty. An obscure left of center Bossa-Nova album with conscious lyrics of urban life, a long way from songs about tall tanned girls. Recorded in 1959 by the amazing musician/artist Jocy de Oliveira, this overlooked Brazilian masterpiece is now available for all. Highly recommended.
Please note this album plays at 45rpm!
