"Must have reissue."  Sunday Times

"Gilberto Gil is a Brazilian - Nay, a world - icon, for a reason, and if anyone ever needed the reason why, it is all here." Jazzwise ****

"A no-brainer if you're a fan of Brazilian music, whether it's MPB, samba or forro that's your bag.  For your money you'll get two of Gilberto Gil's finest albums as well as the option to go on a journey into finding out why reggae is so popular in Brazil - largely due to Gil's Marley covers. Sounds like good value to us."  Sounds And Colours
