Album Review

In 1975, Elis Regina opened her solo show, Falso Brilhante, where she launched the career of another new composer: Belchior. One year after she recorded the repertoire of the show on an LP; this is the CD reissue. The album opens with the two Belchior tunes made hits: "Como Nossos Pais" and "Velha Roupa Colorida," both being folk-influenced rock tunes, dealing with the post-hippie delusion face to the abandonment of the peace and love values in favor of the old bourgeois way. The album also has two Spanish songs, "Los Hermanos," a milonga by Atahualpa Yupanqui, ode to fraternity and freedom with an implying urge for Latin American union, and "Gracias a la Vida," the old chamamé composed by Violeta Parra and made famous for younger generations (at the time) by Joan Baez; the hit "O Cavaleiro E Os Moinhos," "Um Por Todos," and "Jardins de Infância," all by the duo also discovered by her, João Bosco/Aldir Blanc, delivered as fusion rock; "Fascinação," an old romantic valse that, depending on the subject, can bring one to tears or to dismiss it as corny; "Tatuagem," with a strong melody and lyrics, of a dramatic romanticism, by Chico Buarque and Ruy Guerra, already made famous by Maria Bethânia; and "Quero" (Thomas Roth).

Her tempestuous nature aside, she commanded the respect of Brazil's leading songwriters, who lined up for the chance to have her record one of their songs, and for much of her short life was the country's most popular female...
