LIMITED DELUXE EDITION - 180 Gram.
Elemental Music together with Universal Music Spain proudly presents a new LP reissue of the long unavailable eponymous album from 1972 by the lovely Brazilian female vocal group QUARTETO EM CY. Known as “The Girls From Bahia” in the USA, Quarteto Em Cy are undoubtedly the most important female band of the MPB since they were discovered by Vinícius de Moares and Carlos Lyra in the early 60’s. Their self-titled LP, released by the Odeon label in 1972, is considered unarguably their best album ever and includes arrangements by Edu Lobo, Luiz Eça (from Tamba Trio), and stellar collaborations like that of the legendary singer-songwriter Dorival Caymmi. Often compared to The Mamas & The Papas, The Free Design, The Association and Harper’s Bizarre, the list of Quarteto Em Cy’s collaborators throughout their prolific career is impressive: Baden Powell, João Gilberto, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Marcos Valle, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, MPB4, and Toquinho, among others. Included here is the landmark track “Tudo Que Você Podia Ser”, their amazing take on the Milton Nascimento classic!
