AllMusic Review by

Competent soul singer Ed Motta performed in the mega event Rio Show Festival at the Riocentro stadium in May 1991. The show, recorded live, free from overdubbing, was only released in 1998. Surrounded by excellent musicians (several of them former members of Motta's uncle Tim Maia's band Vitória Régia), Motta delivers with his potent vocal qualities his early successes "Manuel" and "Vamos Dançar" (originals) and other hits such as "Ladies Night" (Brown/Kool & the Gang), "You and I" (Rick James), "Goodnight Irene" (Leadbelly/John Lomax), and others, creating an energetic and fully danceable album.
