AllMusic Review by

Compilation of some of Nara Leão's biggest and more representative hits: "A Banda" (which won the II FMPB in 1966), "Opinião" (1964), "Acender As Velas" (1964), and "Diz Que Fui Por Aí" (1967), all by the fundamental Zé Keti. Also included are bossas re-recorded unprejudiced by her after her bossa phase ("O Barquinho," "Desafinado," "Telefone") romantic songs by one of the most popular and criticized duos of composers, Roberto Carlos/Erasmo Carlos ("Debaixo Dos Ccaracóis Dos Seus Cabelos," "Além do Horizonte"), and even the anthem of the alienated youth in the '70s, Caetano Veloso's "Odara." The 20 songs included in this compilation outline her artistic profile, which was always very personal and upright to her own personal choices and beliefs.
