Order before 3pm for same day dispatch


Our good buds at AOTN continue their neverending quest to make available once again only the finest nuggets from all sections of the planet, touching down once more on Brazilian shores. Here's what they have to say on this glorious LP:

"Born in Rio in 1940, Helio won a guitar from his father at age 12.After working in sugar mills or as a sales clerk in record stores, he started performing at Rio nightclubs (like Plaza) and São Paulo.

In 1975 he signed to RCA Victor on which he released his first LP, "Matheus Segundo Matheus"

With arrangements by Oberdan "Black River" Magalhães, Zé Rodrix and Chiquinho de Moraes with participation of Azymuth as a support band withg a total of 128 musicians involved int he recording.

Unfortuanly this much deserved reissue didn't make it to press before Helio passed last year, but we are most humble and proud to do it justice.

One of my favourite Brazilian LP's just to listen to."
