About this item

Reissued for the first time outside of Brazil, Todos Os Olhos is one of the most important Brazilian records of all time.

Tom Zé is considered the most "paulista" of all Tropicalistas. He came from Bahia, but his wry urban poetry, infused with the uncomfortable sounds of the largest metropolis of South America, is pure São Paulo.

Todos os Olhos is one of the most emblematic and essential records of the confrontational music of Brazil. By denouncing, criticizing, and mocking the trend of “heroes” who made “protest music” at the time, Tom Ze´ signed his eremitic letter of exclusion but not without “contest the contestation”. Excommunicated from the MPB and even from Tropica´lia, in Todos os Olhos Tom Ze´ presented, with a lot of courage, an unusual way of fight Brazil’s military dictatorship. All that would be later triggered in Tom Ze´’s career is here, always ready for a new rediscovery.
