A wonderful collection of work from Chico Buarque
– one of the most important figures in Brazilian music of the past 50 years! Chico
's initial recordings predated the Tropicalia generation, but along with them, he helped develop a style that continued to evolve and forever shape the sound of MPB! The set starts with Chico
's earliest days, then moves up through important 70s recordings, and even goes onto later years – showing the rich depth that Chico
always brought to his music. 23 tracks in all – with titles that include "Filosofia", "A Banda", "Samba De Orly", "Tatuagem", "Sem Fantasia", "Sonho De Um Carnaval", "Barbara", "Ole Ola", "Tanto Mar", "Bye Bye Brasil", and "Apesar De Voce".
