More information:


This is one of two albums that Paulinho da Viola released in 1971, neither of which were titled. They are both great. It is made up mostly of original tunes, with a notable contribution from one of his mentors in the Portela samba school, Candeia (“Filosofia do Samba”).

And this album has the distinction of having  a true anomaly on it: a non-samba tune that Paulinho ever recorded, rare becausee Paulinho is a samba purist. “Consumir E Viver” is by the MPB songwriter Marcus Vinicius and while it still has sambista flourishes, it does stand out as being a bit more pop/rock (the coda of the song is a straight up 4/4 rock beat). It also features a harpsichord, an instrument which reappears at the end of the LP as well.

So there, there is some musical commentary, with bookends of verbose bloat.  In the words of one brilliant reviewer of a Spinal Tap album, this post, along with the rest of this blog, is one “Shit Sandwich”.
