Critic Score. 1001 Albums to Listen to Before You Die: Album 11. I think it's important to note in this review that I'm of Portugese background. Not only that, but many of my neighbours and family friends are Portuguese, Brazilian or Cuban, so this specific style of music is very familiar to me and I have a special cultural connection to it


My copy of this LP actually plays in stereo, despite the obi, jacket and labels all indicating mono.
