Arthur Verocai definitive reissue LP

The definitive re-issue is an exact replica of the gatefold original LP. The source master is taken from the original Continental tapes, re-mastered in 2012 under Arthur’s supervision.

“I could listen to the album everyday for the rest of my life” – Madlib.

In 1972 a repressive Brazilian military dictatorship frowned on artistic impression that might influence the youth of the country. However, producer, arranger and guitar player Verocai recorded and released a self-titled album on Brazilian-based Continental that challenged the musical conventions of the day. His subtle protest experimented with new musical directions, and used figurative language to sneak under the censorship radar.
