Caetano Veloso – 1971 (Aka A Little More Blue ) – LP 180 gr.

Also known as A Little More Blue or London, London, Caetano
Veloso (1971) is the third self-titled album by the Brazilian genius
and the first to be recorded in London, where the artist was
living in exile from the Brazilian dictatorship. This masterpiece
is considered one of the greatest albums of Caetano’s career. It
contains a number of incredibly beautiful tunes filled with themes of loss and longing that no doubt come from his separation from
Brazil. Veloso’s extreme bitterness and melancholy can be heard on every groove of this, his first UK album (the second was the aforementioned Transa, recorded in 1972). Caetano Veloso was first released in Europe in 1971, and then in Brazil later that year, where two verses of the first song were considered subversive and censored. The song “Maria Bethânia” was also slightly censored as some guttural sounds sung by Veloso towards the
end of the track were found to be offensive and removed.
