A magnificent tribute to an early Brazilian rocker

"Brazilian rocker Raul Seixas was one of his country's most genuine rock'n'roll rebels, a frequently troubled, yet utterly impassioned artist, whose love of rock music began in the late 1950s, and lasted, undiminished, until his tragic early death in 1989. His 1970s work with lyricist Paulo Coelho (later to become one of Brazil's most widely read popular novelists) was a high point of Brazilian rock, paving the way for the BRock scene of the 1980s, and establishing a new voice in Brazilian popular music.This sleek, well-packaged CD box set includes six of Seixas's albums recorded for the Philips and Fontana labels, along with several bonus tracks on each disc. The albums reissued include: "Krig-Ha, Bandolo!" (1973), "Gita" (1974), "Novo Aeon" (Philips, 1975), "Ha Dez Mil Anos Atras" (1975), "Raul Rock Seixas" (1976) and "20 Anos Do Rock'n'Roll" (renamed "30 Anos..." for the CD reissue). There's a wild variety of styles, from the dreamy, experimental space-folk of his early albums to the wilder, harder guitar rock of later albums, and his frequent dips into the classic canon of 1950s and early '60s American rock. The set comes with a nice booklet, adorned with plenty of cool photos, Seixas cartoons and other archival material. If you want to delve into Seixas's best work, this is really the place to start.
