Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivas = LP = (LP)
The rarest of all Portuguese 70's albums, and one of the ever best progressive rock records from Europe, we're so happy to be ready with this title at last.
QUARTETO 1111 are better known for their psychedelic-pop recordings, but in 1974 they also released this incredible album, a brutal mellotron fuelled progressive rock monster very much inspired by UK prog outfits as King Crimson. A few years after, Quarteto's leader José Cid recorded the well-known "10000 anos depois entre Venus e Marte".
The album contains one long +30 minutes suite only, with Portuguese lyrics that caused the withdrawn of the album by the authorities at the convulse time this was released, becoming one of the rarest collector items from Portugal. An absolute must-have album, and a very nice reissue with original artwork including backflaps, fantastic remastered sound and including an insert with rare unseen photos from José Cid's personal archive and linernotes by Quarteto 1111's authority Joao Carlos Callixto.
700 copies only.
