Limited Edition 180 Gram LP

Elemental Music, together with Universal Music, proudly presents a new LP reissue of the long unavailable album Jóia by Caetano Veloso. Released simultaneously with Qualquer Coisa (which was also recently reissued by Elemental Music), Jóia (1975) is considered one of Caetano’s best efforts after returning from exile in London. Much like Qualquer Coisa, the album’s sound is quiet soft, and mainly acoustic. If anything, Jóia comes across as even softer and quieter than the aforementioned album. Among the most beautiful melodies on the record are “Lua, Lua, Lua” and “Guá”. Unlike Qualquer Coisa, almost all of the songs here are Veloso originals, though there is also an unusual interpretation of the famous Beatles tune “Help!”. The soft tone of the album and some experimental tracks make Jóia less directly accessible than other Veloso classics, such as his following album, Bicho (1977). Nevertheless, the album is superb and many fans consider it one of the finest from his ample discography. Contained here is the original cover art which was censored by the ruling Brazilian military dictatorship at the time.
