The 1977 self-titled album from legendary Brazilian artist, Tim Maia. A fusion of soul, boogie, disco and MPB, featuring 'E Necessario'.Tim Maia is rightly recognised as one of the biggest icons in Brazilian music. He was born in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro 1942, and released over 30 albums during his extensive and well-publicised career, touching on funk, bossa nova, disco, MPB, rock, soul and jazz. In the 1970s, Maia started to record albums and perform shows promoting his synthesis of American soul and Brazilian music with elements of samba and baiao. The album features classic tracks, such as 'E Necessario', one of the best of his career and a favourite of ours for many years, and the boogie gem, 'Verao Carioca'. These soulful, funky tracks sit next to beautiful, heart-wrenching ballads and the equally funky instrumental 'Flores Belas'. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on limited edition apple red and brown coloured vinyl.
