    A rare gem. The original edition is very good. The Polysom edition is poor.

        This is the first solo album by singer Fernanda Abreu. She was already known by the Brazilian public with her participation in the backing vocals of one of the most famous Brazilian groups of the Pop Rock, Blitz, much played on Brazilian radio stations in 1982. And she also had a participation in the first recording of Fausto Fawcett in 1977, with the track "Juliette".

        Despite her past in pop rock, Fernanda Abreu identified herself even with Black Music, being frequent attendant of the black parties that happened in her city, Rio de Janeiro. The repertoire of this record, for example, is loaded with influences from Disco, Funk 80's, Old School Hip-Hop and Electro.

        The influence seems clear in the samples: Samples of "Unity", by Afrika Bambaataa & James Brown in and "The Message", Grand master Flash & The Furious Five, in track " SLA Radical Disco Club"; samples from "The Roof Is On Fire", Rock Master Scott & The Dynamic Three, in the tune "Kamikazes do Amor"; samples from "The Message II (Survival)" by Grand Master Melle Mel, and "122 BPM", Jive Rhythm Trax, in "Melô do Radical", one of the first tracks of Miami Bass style made in Brazil.One of the essential tracks of the record is the track "Luxo Pesado", a portuguese / english version for the classic "Got to Be Real", by Cheryl Lynn.

        Fernanda Abreu assembled an acoustic band format with dee jays (Marlboro and Memê) and samplers in this record - and the result was incredible. The musician Herbert Viana, of the group of Pop Rock called "Paralamas do Sucesso", produced the record together with the pianist and arranger Fabio Fonseca. In fact, if you are looking for something about Brazilian funk made in this era - between the turn of the 1980s and 1990s - do not forget to listen to Fábio Fonseca's records, too.

        Cheers,
        Rodrigo.
