AllMusic Review by

Good compilation of the folk-rock duo Sá & Guarabyra. Beginning when they were still a trio, with the singer/composer/instrumentalist/composer Zé Rodrix, the compilation reaches back to a rare "Mestre Jonas" from their censored LP Terra from 1973. "O Pó da Estrada" and "Primeira Canção da Estrada" were written during that phase but were recorded by the duo only, in 1983. "Dona" (also re-recorded by Roupa Nova) and "Roque Santeiro" were included in the Roque Santeiro soap opera. The biggest hits of the compilation are "Verdades E Mentiras," "Estrela Natureza," the corny "Espanhola," "Caçador de Mim" (re-recorded by Milton Nascimento), and the cult tunes "Sete Marias" and "Sobradinho."
