It may have taken 50 years to 'arrive' but Rubinho E Mauro Assumpção's 'Perfeitamente, Justamente Quando Cheguei' has lost none of it's original 1972 brilliance of Brazilian-psych-folk-MPB. 

Originally released on Tapecar Records iyou won't find an orginal copy) you'll find these 11 tracks taking inspriation from all over the globe including British 60s pop ('Bloco Da Visão', 'Sozinho Não Estou', 'Qualé A Sua'), US. West Coast psychadelia/prog rock/Country/olk rock (Grateful Dead/CSN[&Y]/Doors, etc.) ('Dobra A Esquina P/ Ver O Sol', 'No Mundo da Lua'), Samba/Bossa ('Os Olhos), Tropicália.and a mixture of all. 

The sound/mastering is of high quality and the only slight moan, the tracks are 'punk length' short so there's no extended version - love to know what would have happened if the guitar (Rick Ferreira) pheak out at the end of 'Quero Companheira' would have gone or the funky horns on 'Qualé A Sua'.

If your a fans of Nara Leão, Milton Nascimento, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil or Astrid Gilberto (her 'Now' album that was also released in 1972 is re-release today too, review HERE), this album has a lot for you and it's easy to see why this record has demanded such high prices over the years so many thanks to Mr Bongo for sourcing an official re-release.
