I was thumbing through the Brazilian section in a record store today and came across a used copy of BRAZIL CLASSICS VOL. 4: THE BEST OF TOM ZE (MASSIVE HITS), part of the series of CDs compiled by David Byrne for Luaka Bop in the late '80s and early '90s. I was curious to see if it contained any tracks from ESTUDANDO O SAMBA, the 1975 album that (as you may know) is currently the highest-ranked album on Acclaimed Music that I don't own on CD (it's #1638).
It has 9.
Needless to say, I purchased it on the spot. When I got home, I looked up the original album's track listing to find out how many more songs there were. The anthology has 9 out of 12 songs from ESTUDANDO O SAMBA.
I can't exactly say that I have the album now, but after listening to the CD I have placed it in the slot reserved for the original. Which it will occupy until such time as I do obtain said original. I am pleased.
Try the website braziliancd.com, you can purchase a cd containing the album and another Ze album (correio est bras) for 17 dollars
Or you can do what I've done and illegally download every album on Acclaimed Music. Took a chunk of time and effort (especially in ensuring correct file naming and original track listing), but the 3000 albums + rest of the 3000 songs fill a 160 GB iPod almost perfectly.
