Essential releases by Caetano Veloso - Highly subjective, incomplete and in no particular order!

Cores e Nomes
Circulado Ao Vivo
Prenda Minha
Tropicalia 2 (com o Gilberto Gil)
Cinema Transcendental
Outras Palavras

Yikes, just buy 'em all! Caetano is truly God's own muse! ...and in his beauty, he probably wouldn't mind "musa" - The mulatto from Bahia can't possibly imagine the musical pleasure which he has provided this gringo!!!

Ze Renato will be releasing a new album entitled "Breves Minutos" - can't wait to obtain a copy for enjoyment and review! for "breve" samples! Enjoy!!!

Rede Globo Special 23-12-2011 a great special and Christmas gift! Caetano and Gil are still more hip in their seventies than any 20 year old and Ivete Sangalo proves that she is so much more than merely the latest axe' diva. The baianos give the royal treatment to tunes by Chico Buarque, Caetano, Gil and others. This is 70 minutes of pure bliss! The link allows one to watch the show in its entirety! Que maravilha!!!
