BrazilOnGuitar says: We think that the 1976 record Tristeza, compared with Samba Triste and Melancolie that were produced at the same time, is the most interesting one. Except for two tracks,A Primeira Vez and Na Baixa Do Sapateiro, BP is accompanying himself on guitar, more often than on any other record. It can only be guessed whether the title Tristeza 1976 is a reference to the 1966 Tristeza on Guitar.

Unusual is the slower version of Canto de Ossanha, which like the other songs on the record belongs to the faster part of the live repertoire of these years. BP's Version of A Primeira Vez is anticipating his later singing and playing style.Na Baixa Do Sapateiro comes in his usual masterly effortlessness, that is always surprising. Also on this record are musicality and imaginativeness more important than mere technical virtuosity.

The studio recordings Tristeza 1976 and Samba Triste show style and experience of the live repertoire of the mid-70ies with and around the bass player Guy Pederson. These recordings were the last studio recordings with Guy, his preferred musician of the last years, between 1972-1975.

In 1989 Tristeza 1976 was released on CD, together with Samba Triste, except for the track So Danco Samba. Nowadays this is a rarity as it has never been re-released with the original cover. We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation.
