Tom Ze - 2022 Reissue

    Reissued for the first time outside of Brazil, this is Tom Zé's first LP on Continental Label and the press release warned: “1972 marks the beginning of a new phase in Tom Zé’s career. He decided to move into simpler forms of writing and released an album that is a result of that”.

    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.

    This reissue includes unseen photos, new testimonials from Tom Ze´ himself and a lengthy article signed by Bento Araujo, author of the book series Lindo Sonho Delirante.

    After a few “strategic mistakes” in his career, Tom Zé found a new home at Continental label. It was there that he made four albums for the remaining 1970s, beginning with this one. When this LP was released, in 1972, Tom Zé had a relentless interest in the unexplored, in the experiments, and in the unusual. These songs revealed a more mature Tom Zé, addressing social issues, outdated concepts, false traditions, and the hypocrisy from Brazil’s military government.

    Todos Os Olhos - 2022 Reissue

      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.

      Correio Da Estacao Do Bras - 2022 Reissue

        om 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.

        The variety of musical genres in the LP – samba, sertanejo, bolero, xote, repente and forro´ – reflects the cultural diversity of the Bra´s neighbourhood, a meeting point of Italians, nordestinos, Africans, and latinos.

        This reissue includes unseen photos, new testimonials from Tom Ze´ himself and a lengthy article signed by Bento Araujo, author of the book series Lindo Sonho Delirante.

        Away from radio, TV and with live performances increasingly scarce at the end of the seventies, Tom Ze´ was a risky investment for record labels, agents, and gig promoters. Always eager to please his sense for innovation and his creativity Tom Ze´ wanted to release an album again after the cult Estudando o Samba (1976). So came this, a record where the tension was at the script, in the distressing real life chronicles that the artist interpreted and reported also in an autobiographic manner. At Correio da Estac¸a~o do Bra´s (1978 – 2022) Tom Ze´ had done what seemed impossible: contemporary working-class music not for the elite but for the people itself.
