1972 Psychedelic Brazilian Album Reissued on Vinyl LP!

Reissued for the first time outside of Brazil, originally released in 1972. After a few "strategic mistakes" in his career, Tom Zé found a new home at the Continental label. It was there that he made four albums for the remainder of the 1970s, beginning with this self-titled one. When this LP was released in 1972, Tom Zé had a relentless interest in the unexplored, experimental, and the unusual. These songs revealed a more mature Tom Zé, addressing social issues, outdated concepts, false traditions, and the hypocrisy from Brazil's military government. The original press release warned: "1972 marks the beginning of a new phase in Tom Zé's career. He decided to move into simpler forms of writing and released an album that is a result of that." Tom Zé is considered the most "paulista" of all tropicalistas. He came from Bahia, but his wry urban poetry, infused with the uncomfortable sounds of the largest metropolis of South America, is pure São Paulo. This reissue includes unseen photos, new testimonials from Tom Zé himself and a lengthy article signed by Bento Araujo, author of the book series Lindo Sonho Delirante. Gatefold sleeve.

A surrealistic 1972 album from one of the greatest overlooked geniuses of Brazilian music. Tom Zé is one of the most shining examples of avant-garde invention in Latin music, next to Caetano Veloso and Jorge Ben....This self-titled album remains, in its own right, an exquisite collection of lyrical twists and delicate bossa nova tunes that should be tracked down by collectors of Tropicalia.
