“To my cherished public I say this: buy this album, that brings us a demonstration of the most authentic samba. As a sambista, friend, and godmother, I sign below.
-Beth Cavalho
Rio, September 5, 1980

Beth Carvalho, the reigning Queen of Samba Pagode, was not kidding around about these guys with her ‘blessing’ as godmother. Fundo de Quintal formed the backing band on some of her memorable albums from the late 70s and early 80s. And this, their first album on their own, is a classic record from classic purveyors of samba. Two of Fundo de Quintal’s luminaries — Jorge Aragão and Almir Guenito — would go their own ways for successful solo careers, but the heavyweights like Arlindo Cruz and Valter Sete Cordas would step in to fill the void. It is unfortunate that these days “pagode” has come to be a word commonly associated with an awful, saccharine, glossed-up pop-samba sung by boy-band-lookalikes. That stuff has nothing at all in common except a word with the original progenitors of “samba-pagode” like Fundo de Quintal, so if your palette has been spoiled by the former, do yourself a favor and give this disc a spin.
