Career-spanning collection of tracks by the legendary Tim Maia. In the early 1970's, Brazilian popular music was approaching a high water mark of creativity and popularity. artists like Elis Regina, Chico Buarque and Milton Nascimento were delivering top-shelf brazilian pop, while tropicalists Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Os Mutantes were entertaining the college set with avant-garde fuzz-pop poetry. Enter Tim Maia with a massive cannonball into the pool. It was the only dive Tim knew. Standing just 5'7 (6' with the afro) Tim Maia was large, in charge and completely out of control. He was the personification of rock star excess, having lived through five marriages and at least six children, multiple prison sentences, voluminous drug habits and a stint in an ufo obsessed religious cult. Tim is also remembered as a fat, arrogant, overindulgent, barely tolerated, yet beloved man-child who died too young at the age of 55. This music is genius!
