AllMusic Review by

This three-CD box set is the reissue of the homonymous five-LP box set released in 1988 with Gonzaga's own selection of tracks. As the title explains, this release covers the most representative moments of his 50-year career. Covering northeastern rhythms as forró, baião (invented by him himself), xaxado, xote, quadrilha, chamego, and others, he is backed by the typical regional (small group) composed of zabumba, triangle, and violão. A must-have.
