4 stars Really good album.

Quite original concept, with a good use of piano, arp odissey/omni and "cravo".

The two bonus tracks on Korean Limited Edition were taken from the single "A Bananeira" (1974), one of the very first examples of prog in Portugal, alongside with "Cantamos Pessoas Vivas" (from Quarteto 1111, 1974).

The line-up for "A Bananeira" included, besides the Castro brothers, João Seixas (Drums), Alain Mechoulan (Organ), Hugo Coutinho (Electric Viola) and Rui Reis (Piano).

By the way, Guerssen Records will edit "Cantamos Pessoas Vivas" very soon! Another obscure prog masterpiece sees the light of day!
