(4 out of 5 stars)
"A CD reissue of a three-LP set from 1975, this one digs pretty deep into bossa's roots... Includes dozens of long-lost artists, such as Mario Reis, Lennie Dale, Billy Blanco and Doris Monteiro who don't make it on many top ten lists anymore. Some of these tracks I don't care for -- the more lightweight stuff by Tamba Trio, for example, but for a taste of artists such as Carlos Lyra or Dick Farney, this is definitely worth it. Also has the superstars, and the super songs. The liner notes are the clincher -- they're rambunctiously affectionate and enthusiastic, random and sloppy. It's like reading a really great DIY zine on Brazilian pop, with little articles on artists, producers, styles, etc. Definitely recommended."
