CD Reviews

One of Gal Costa's finest!!
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 01/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best records of the tropicalia era. A supple, gorgeous live album; one of Costa's finest albums. The first half features Costa's youthful, sparrowlike voice is at its softest and best, accompanied only by an acoustic guitar and the applause of her entranced audience. Midway through the album, a lively -- though slightly comedic -- Cream-like heavy rock/jazz accompaniment kicks in, while Costa keeps crooning. Features an excellent selection of early tropicalia and plaintive ballads -- altogether, a cool tour through the stylistic range of Brazilian MPB. HIGHLY recommended!"
Lovely ballads and wild, wild rock

"This live album from her early years is actually one of my favourites. It begins with an extended set of acoustic ballads where the bossa nova style is still very present in Gal's delicious vocals. This first part of the concert features gems as "Antonico" and "Sua estupidez". Then, in the middle of the album, there's a radical shift -an electric guitar appears on stage, introducing a wild set of songs which mix rock, blues, psychedelia and Brazilian folklore, where Gal sings crazily. The last song, "Luz do sol" (from Pinto/Wali, which has nothing to do with a ballad with the same name written by Caetano Veloso and also sung by Gal Costa in a later album) is fabulous. This album is a gorgeous sample of what Gal was doing before her more market-oriented days, when her singing was more spontaneous and moody."
Stunning live performance with Caetano Veloso

"This show was recorded during Gal Costa's early period, so it is quite honest and not too overproduced. Her songs here are very sweet and beautiful."
