His first LP, and arguably also the best album from the great Rozenblit catalogue, lovingly restored in its original format on limited LP and CD, re-mastered from the original Rozenblit master tapes. In 1968 Tom Zé moved from Salvador, Bahia to Sao Paulo where he hung out and wrote with his friends Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. Although initially part of the Tropicalia movement, Zé was extremely independent and determined to forge his own musical path. He started by recording Grande Liquidacao, a hyperactive pop album backed up by two incredible
psychedelic rock bands: Os Brazoes and Os Versateis. Tom Zé's material on this album includes traditional Brazilian Tropicalia laced with crazy vocal melodies and samples a multitude of genres from funk to psychedelic rock and bossa nova creating, in the process, a sort of unheard pop exotica. This is especially apparent on the track 'Gloria' with
its changing tempos, bubbling instrumentation and off-the-wall harmonies. The pace of the album, considering it was the '60s, is brutal, so Zé takes a break between songs to address the listener before resuming his zigzag trajectory. The album also includes the fantastic 'Parque Industrial' which was later recorded by Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso on the
'Tropicalia: Panis Et Circenses' album.

Also available: GRANDE LIQUIDICAO (CD).
