INFO: Luaka Bop has been able to expand the shelf life of many record collections without any added chemicals or preservatives over the course of 20 years starting with the label-creating Brazil Classics Series. Featuring cross-sections of music from the Tropicalia, samba, forro and mangue beat scenes and the unrivaled originality of Tom Zé, each compilation has presented the origin of significant artistic developments in South America’s great musical innovator.
Having now delivered 7 packages documenting each scene, the most recent being 2008’s What’s Happening in Pernambuco, the label is proud to offer a limited edition vinyl compilation in April of some of the most defining tracks from each album. The selection will also be available exclusively through iTunes beginning February 26, 2008 with a slightly different track listing.
