ALBUM DESCRIPTION
Kent Simpson | Auckland, New Zealand | 10/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"at time of writing there was no description of the album or tracklist given.
I believe this is the album with the 'football team' photos on the cover. I've been trying to track this for a while, seems only to have become available on CD wef 18Sep02, before then only available on tape or vinyl in second hand stores. (my dad's got a copy).track listing:
1. Love me tomorrow
2. Love city
3. Mozambique
4. If you leave me now
5. Peninsula
6. Why
7. The real thing
8. P-Ka-Boo
9. Lifei'd label the album into the upbeat latin-jazz genre, but has a slight disco feel to it also- mostly the bass lines i think - released 1977 in the disco era.
lots of electric piano with latin rhythms, disco style bass, some 'chikchik' guitar, all female vocals."
Brings back memories from I.S.U.

"Every song on this album was a hit in my book! Just start a cut and you will be pleased! Thumping bass and terrific horn section!!!"
One of the best of Sergio's 70s outings

"A great, funky album from Sergio, featuring some standout tunes, notably his Stevie Wonder-penned minor hit "The Real Thing," which got a lot of airplay in some markets but which sadly failed to crack the Top 40. There are also great reworkings of Chicago's "If You Leave Me Now" and the gorgeous "Why" co-written by Michael Sembello, both of which introduce some Quarteto em Cy harmonies into the Mendes vocal palette, something he would continue to exploit for the rest of his 70s Elektra output. This was Sergio's group with two drummers, on top of his usual battery of percussion, and the rhythm arrangements positively crackle with energy. Highly recommended."
