Originally released in 1969, this is Gilberto Gil's second self-titled album in as many years. Perhaps not as consistent as the previous year's effort this is still a massive slab of Tropicalia, and one of the most forward-thinking pop albums to ever come out of Brazil. Featuring his first major hit "Aquele Abraço" and other classics like "Volks Volkswagen Blue" and "Cérebro Eletrónico," Gilberto Gil manages to incorporate psychedelic experimentation, blues, rock, samba and post bossa nova into a whole much greater than the sum of its parts. A Tropicalia classic in print domestically for the first time ever.
