Smithsonian Folkways
  • 1. Opiniao (Opinion)
  • 2. Funeral do Lavrador (Funeral of a Worker)
  • 3. Pedro Pedreiro (Peter the Mason)
  • 4. Sina de Caboccio (Destiny of a Pheasant)
  • 5. Cheganca (Arrival)
  • 6. Pau de Arara (The Parrot Roost)
  • 7. Carcara (The Vulture)
  • 8. Cancao da Terra (Song of the Earth)
  • 9. Zelao
  • 10. Feio, Nao e Bonito (Ugly)

Killer, killer, killer 60s hard bossa! There are tough versions of 'Carcara' (check out the audio), Edu Lobo's 'Cheganca', 'Opiniao' and other protest songs. This really is the business!!! As good as any Tamba Trio, Zimbo Trio stuff! Recommended.
