Item ID: 411978

Tom Zé is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, innovator and composer who was hugely influential in the Tropicália movement of 1960s Brazil. Zé is often thought of as Brazil's answer to Zappa or Captain Beefheart; a true innovator and a true artist.
His second solo album is self-titled and was released by RGE Discos in 1970. After the peak of the Tropicália period, Zé went into relative obscurity. It was only in the 1990s, when musician and Luaka Bop label founder David Byrne discovered an album recorded by Zé many years earlier, that he returned to performing and releasing new material. Continuing in a similar musical vein to 'Grande Liquidicao', 'Tom Zé' offers a wonderful combination of guitars, layers of percussion and tough rock'n'roll, underpinned by Zé's instantly reconisable vocal. This vinyl reissue is manufactured in Japan and presented in a super high quality card sleeve with reproduced artwork.

Also available: TOM ZE (CD).
