Di Melo's debut album was originally released in 1975 and it's a fusion of genuinely Brazilian rhythms with Funk, Soul and the right amount of psychedelia. Di Melo is one of the main Brazilian Soul Music artists, seen by many as talented and musically creative as his peers Jorge Ben and Tim Maia. Di Melo went missing in action from 1976 to 1997, the year his song "A Vida em Seus Métodos Diz Calma" was on the collection "Blue Brazil" from Blue Note record label. The word on the streets was that he was dead until 2011, when the documentary called "Di Melo, o Imorrível" (Di Melo, the immortal) was released. In this 2021 edition the album contains the original 1975 insert with lyrics plus photos from personal family archives and for the first time the full credits with all the name of every single musician who took part, among them, Hermeto Pascoal. The young man of 25 coming from the outskirts of Pernambuco was at the peak of his success. Psychedelic drugs and cinema references were blowing his mind away when he realised that he was being conned by music industry rats. His songs were at the hit parade on the radio and his music had been recorded by some of the biggest names in Brazil, but what he was being paid for made no justice to that. People say that after watching the movie "Blow Up" by Antonioni, Di Melo himself beat the s*** out of the publisher who paid him less than 10 dollars for his rights for the past three months. Such events, ran by the same strong personality that initially opened doors, made Di Melo ostracized by the ungrateful Brazilian music industry. Perhaps that's what it took to make such a mythical album.
