Second, the usual use of lyrics of some of the greatest Portuguese poets, which is the case of "As Trovas Do Vento Que Passa" with a poem of Manuel Alegre, a great Portuguese contemporaneous poet, which became a very important symbolic song, a kind of a symbol of the resistance of the Portuguese University students against the dictatorship regime in Portugal.
Musically, the album is heavily influenced by the psychedelic and folk styles. The album represented an escape from the narrowness of a country which was not interested in change, remaining at the same time inextricably linked to it or what it could do.
We mustn't forget that Portugal was never a hotbed of progressive rock. So, this album of Quarteto , despite be more a psychedelic and pop album, represents the beginning of the progressive rock in Portugal. We can say that it was a kind of a breath of fresh air in Portugal, at the time. It represents the beginning of the good things that would appear in the next years, after the fall of the dictatorship regime, in , by the revolution that came to be known as the Carnation Revolution.
Prog is my Ferrari. The second track "Os Faunos" was also released on their debut EP. It's a song about fauns, which was a rustic Latin god or goddess of Roman mythology often associated with enchanted woods and the Greek god Pan and his satyrs.
The third track "Gente" was another song released on their debut EP. It's a song about anonymous poor persons abandoned in the world, without having home, care and love of someone. The fourth track "Balada Para D. It's a song about a famous and very popular episode of the history of Portugal, in the XIV century, the tragic love of the infant D.
Pedro, heir of Portuguese throne and future king D. Pedro I with D. Afonso IV, because he felt their love immoral and illegitimate. The fifth track "Partindo-se" was also released on their second EP. It's a sad song about emigration. It's about the anguish and the sadness in our eyes when we see our beloved family depart to distant places in search of a better life. It's about the big difference that separated the rich from the poor in those times in Portugal, in the dictatorship regime.
It's a song based in one of the most brilliant chapters of the Portuguese History. It's about the deeds of the heroic Portuguese navigators, who in the XV century, discovered new lands, "giving new worlds to the world". The ninth track "Domingo Em Bidonville" was also released on their first album.
It's a song about the Portuguese emigrants who left their country in search of a better life, but who still miss their country, family and friends. It's another song about emigration. This is a very sad song about a man who returns to his homeland at the end of a hard working life far way from Portugal. The poem tells us that he has no longer his family, his friends and his dog waiting for him.
Nothing is waiting for him, except his coffin. Originally, it was an important song, a symbol of the resistance of Portuguese Universitary students to the dictatorship regime in Portugal. It's a song with short lyrics and is an ode to the nature and to the men, in their effort to find perfection in the search of God.
The thirteenth track "Back To The Country" was released on their single with the same name, in It's an appeal to men to their return to the fields. The fourteenth track "Ode To The Beatles" was released as a single in , with the same name, and represents a homage to The Beatles. It represents the second attempt to internationalize the band singing in English. This is a way of seeing it with peace and love.
However, of the fifteen tracks recorded on "Singles And EP's", only six are new in relation to that previous compilation. So, actually it doesn't bring to us practically any new stuff. Anyway, this is perhaps preferable to "Singles And EP's" because it has more three songs than the first one has. Quarteto was a Portuguese band formed in , in Estoril, a place near Lisbon. Later, they decided to form a new group named "Quarteto , whose name was inspired by the phone number of one of the band's members, since they spent few months working on their music in his garage.
It has been suggested to the group to sing in Portuguese, despite the great influence of the British music on the band. In reality, London and Lisbon were the only centres of attraction that guided all the music of Quarteto during their short life. Their main objectives were to create music influenced by the style of the new British music, marrying it in an intelligent way with some of the main typical Portuguese features of music. It was their first song and was recorded on their debut EP, with the same name, released in It's based in a very well known Portuguese legend about the disappearing of El-Rei D.
The legend said that he should appear on a foggy morning to help Portugal to recover its independence lost to Spain in the XVII century. The third track "Ode To The Beatles" was released as a single in , with the same name, and represents a homage to The Beatles.

Fortunately and lucky for me, I have a vinyl copy purchased in the 70's. My main concern on this review was to focus all my attention in lyrics, trying to explain the subjects covered in each song. I did it because I know the majority of the readers don't know any word of Portuguese, and as we know, music is a universal language. I hope you can enjoy both, the music and the review too. Prog is my Ferrari.
