Melancholy, psych folk-Brazilian classic!!! Lush beautiful arrangements, sample-laden gem! 

In 1972 a repressive Brazilian military dictatorship frowned on artistic impression that might influence the youth of the country. However, producer, arranger and guitar player Arthur Verocai released a self-titled album on Brazilian based Continental Records that challenged the musical conventions of the day. His subtle protest experimented with new musical directions, and used figurative language to sneak under the censorship radar.

Extremely rare album that has been known to fetch over $5000 online. Don't miss the opportunity to add this classic to your collection!
