Notable differences for pressings can include pressing plant indicators in the runouts, the spelling of the title of track B2 on the back cover and labels, a single-character manufacturing code on the back cover, and differences in the writing and publishing credits for tracks B2 and B5.

Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s -- the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time -- all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin-voiced style that let Brasil 66 transform any tune they could get their hands on! There's some really great numbers here of Brazilian origin -- including Joao Donato's "The Frog", Marcos Valle's "Batucada", and Gilberto Gil's "Roda" -- not to mention Sergio's own "Look Around", which is an especially charming number! Other titles include "The Look Of Love", "Pradizer Adeus", and "Like A Lover".
