Caetano Velosos & Gal Costa – Domingo – Limited Edition 180 Gram LP

This Elemental Music release presents the debut album of both Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, two of the leading representatives of the Bossa Nova (new wave) which expanded the horizons of Brazilian music by turning it into a highly personal experience. Released in 1967, the album features seven original compositions (all by Caetano), one partnership with Torquato Neto, and four other songs (two by Gilberto Gil and Torquato Neto, one by Edu Lobo, and one by Sidney Miller). Domingo is a quiet, post-bossa nova effort characterized by fine singing and some very good songs, and was a deceptive calm-before-thestorm since both artists would soon play central roles in the wild, psychedelic experimental scene known as Tropicalia. It would take years of musical and political tumult before each of them regained their footing, which makes this relatively modest and innocent beginning all the more valuable. This is an essential album that is a top 10 of all time best Bossa Nova recordings.
