The Long Ear

Vinyl LP pressing. The sixth studio album of the Brazilian artist Jorge Ben. Released in 1969, it was Jorge Ben's first album with Trio Mocotó, a group that would be backing him along the 70's on many other seminal albums, such as Força Bruta (1970), Negro É Lindo (1971) and A Tábua de Esmeralda (1974). The present album is said to have influenced the 'Tropicália' movement, as three tracks from this set, 'Que pena', 'País tropical' and 'Charles, anjo 45' were immediately covered by Gal Costa (the former two), and Caetano Veloso (the latter), two key artists of that Brazilian musical and artistic movement. This album is considered a samba soul classic, and quite possibly Ben's greatest album ever.
