EDITORS’ NOTES

This album's youthful, multiracial cover photo matches the music's freshness and vitality. Combining Brazilian folk and pop with jazz, rock, and R&B, these tracks are as progressive as Rio's earlier Tropicália scene, but with an earthier, organic feel. Milton Nascimento's "San Vicente" has the playful melodicism of Ram-era Paul McCartney, while Lô Borges' "O Trem Azul" feels like Crosby, Stills & Nash on a bossa nova trip. Eumir Deodato's dreamy string arrangement adds sophistication to the languid, wordless vocals and acoustic guitar of the title track.

This album is great but the iTunes version is missing 6 tracks!

First: this is a classic album. Absolutely wonderful.

However, the version of Clube da Esquina available on iTunes is not only spelled incorrectly, it is also missing the final six songs. No one wants an incomplete album, right?! I recommend getting this album elsewhere until iTunes gets it together.

Incomplete but great album

Surprised to see this 1972 recording (digitally remastered in 1995) on iTunes and yes, the last 6 tracks are missing, hence the 1 star for a 5 star album. The 1995 release has 21 tracks. That being said Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser (track #1) and Cravo E Canela (track #6) are classics. This is a great album.
