Comments:  

BrazilOnGuitar says: In the Summer of 1968 did BP a couple of concerts with his quartet, the singer Marcia and the percussion group Originais do Samba. The first recording of the Baden Powell Quartet is from a show in the Teatro Bela Vista. In the Show part Baden Powell plays compositions like Vento Vadio or Marcha Escocesa that he would perform many times in his life.

After Euridice, sounding even more delicately and beautifully than on Poema on Guitar, the quartet starts a raw and intense arrangement of Berimbau, which later would lose nothing of its original sound on the tiring European tour in 1970. Baden Powell's characteristic raw guitar sound would become innate to his early style.

On Recital, second part of the record, Baden sings and plays with Marcia (*) and the Originais do Samba (*). Most likely, the Show with the quartet and the Recital with Marcia were combined from various shows in the Teatro Bela Vista.

Show/Recital was for a long time only available as an LP and (without the web) very hard to find outside of Brazil. The long awaited CD-reissue (2003) was carefully remastered and shows the original cover. The booklet of the CD-reissue contains all lyrics. The recording quality of the CD re-issue is better than the original LP. We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation.
