CD Reviews

This Is Why Brazilian Pop Is So Great....
Greg C. | NY | 10/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1971 album finds pop-samba-groove-bossa mastermind singer-songwriter at his creative peak, a set of songs that demolish genre and language barriers to take up permanent residence on your turntable or in your CD changer. Valle's work here is both incredibly diverse and instantly identifiable, not to mention catchy as hell. Beatlesque here, Jobim-ish there, some Bacharach & Webb-type stylings, a Mancini arranging flourish or three, a mysteriously alluring and beautiful quality akin to 60s European film soundtracks, and a definite flair for the funky groove. All this, and tunes like "Garra," "Wanda Vidal," "Que Bandeira" and "Paz E Futebol" will have you walking around humming and whistling incessantly and almost helplessly, even if you don't speak a word of Portuguese. This album, like Valle's others from the same period, tends to be desperately sought-after around the world, and although this reissue is a bit pricey, it's nothing compared to the unconscionable amounts that tend to be paid for original copies. A true classic!"

2 Com Mais de 30 (2:40)
3 Garra (2:57)
4 Black Is Beautiful (4:15)
5 Ao Amigo Tom (1:56)
6 Paz e Futebol (2:33)
7 Que Bandeira (2:59)
8 Wanda Vidal (2:04)
9 Minha Voz Virá Do Sol da América (4:20)
10 Vinte e Seis Anos de Vida Normal (2:22)
11 O Cafona (3:24)
12 Berenice (*) (3:01)* Bonus track available on Japanese import"
