Wow, check this out. The artwork is inspired in a classic bossa nova record, the 1973' self-titled release by João Gilberto. Dope!

Just a note. The version of Encounter in Bahia appears here about about 6 and half minutes, not the 4 minutes on Thievery Hi-Fi. This is the same version as appears on the French Lebanese Blonde single. Speaking of which, the track that appears here, "Elis Affair (Part 2)" is the same track that appears on the French Lebanese Blonde single as Elise Affair. Apparently, the vocalist is named Elis Regina (yes, spelled without an 'e' on Elis), which is where they got the title. I have no idea if this is in any way related to the track Elis Affair that appears on the 2001 Spliff Odyssey single.

Sorry this is so late, but "Elis Affair (Part 2) and "Elise Affair" on the Lebanese Blonde single are indeed related to "The Elis Affair" on 2001 Spliff Odyssey; they are essentially remixes of that song (and better than the original, imho).
