This album has Ruy Maurity's biggest hit, "Serafim e Seus Filhos" (which had been recorded for his 1971's Em Busca do Ouro), in a new guarânia rendition. It also has "Estradas do Interior," a version of Niff/Danoff/Denver's "Country Roads," which also had success, being included in the soap opera Ana Raio e Zé Trovão's soundtrack. A light singer with a strong bent toward American folk music, Ruy Maurity brings Northeastern coco ("Ronca o Fole") and country music ("Com A Viola Nas Mãos") to his calm, bucolic, nostalgic ("Tempos de Menino") sound, full of sertanejo references ("Quanto Mais Você Disser" and its Brazilian viola are good examples).
