Having finally proved themselves a viable rockin' entity without the services of former frontman-turned-solo-pop-star Cazuza, Barao Vermelho celebrated the end of this transition period with a career-summarizing live album. Recorded over two nights at Sao Paulo's Dama Xoc nightclub, Barao ao Vivo is a suitably stripped-down recording in keeping with the band's blue-collar rock ethic at the time. Containing such early favorites as "Beth Balanco" and "Pro Dia Nascer Feliz," as well as post-Cazuza hits like "Pense e Danse," the album concludes with a spirited cover of the Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."
