sleeve : EX-(some wear on edge and corner.)

This album, released in 1984 by Brazilian songstress Gal Costa, who, together with Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania, sparked the Tropicália movement and became a darling of the era in the late 1960s. The album features a luxurious lineup of composers, including longtime acquaintances Caetano Veloso, Djavan, Moraes Moreira, Gonzaga Jr., and even Stevie Wonder. Reflecting the mid-1980s mainstream style, the album showcases a variety of musical styles, from rock/pop to samba-rock and ballads. Highlights include the mellow tropical groove with rich percussion and electric piano/synthesizer featured in track A5, and the delightfully groovy track B4, with its relaxed bass, delicate cutting guitar, and soft-touch electric piano. These mellifluous and nostalgic tracks are a hallmark of Gal’s music. Recommended.

A5: De Volta Ao Comeco
B4: Topazio
