AllMusic Review by

Old hits by Flávio Venturini, a competent composer/performer, a member of Clube Da Esquina. This live recorded album is significant with the excited energy of the audiences, singing along with their idol his romantic tunes like "Princesa," "Besame," "Nascente," "Todo Azul Do Mar," "Nascente," "Criaturas Da Noite," and "Brincar de Viver" (by Guilherme Arantes, with participation of the composer; the song was re-recorded earlier by Maria Bethânia). He also performed his samba "Pierrot," a pop ballad ("Até Outro Dia"), and old progressive rock-inspired tunes ("Planeta Sonho" and "Linda Juventude"). Toninho Horta doesn't play here, but the guitarist emulated him carefully. The album has no surprises, which is a good thing -- on later releases, Venturini would abandon his style for a more commercial approach.
