Gal Costa is the first solo album by the Brazilian singer Gal Costa, released in 1969. It was ranked the 80th best Brazilian album of all time by the Brazilian Rolling Stone magazine. Considered one of the most representative records of the countercultural Tropicália movement, the album features songwriting by various artist associated with the movement, with whom Costa had previously worked with in the 1968 collaboration album Tropicália: ou Panis et Circencis.

Gal Costa was born on September 26, 1945 on Barra, one of the most traditional neighbourhoods of Salvador, to Mariah Costa Penna (d. 1993) and Arnaldo Burgos (d. 1960). During her pregnancy, Mariah spent hours concentrated listening to classical music, as in a ritual, with the intention that her child would become interested in music. Costa's first album Domingo was released on 1967 through Philips Records. It was also Veloso's debut. Costa stayed on the label, which later became Polygram, until 1983. One song released from this album, "Coração Vagabundo", became a huge hit. On the same year, Costa also performed two songs on the 2nd International Music Festival, which was then hosted by Rede Globo. They were "Bom Dia", written by Gil and Nana Caymmi and "Dadá Maria", written by Renato Teixeira.

A lot changed between Gal Costa's pleasantly straightforward 1967 debut Domingo and her eponymous follow-up two years later. Domingo, also a debut for young Brazilian songwriter Caetano Veloso, featured a set of airy, somewhat standard bossa nova tunes, sung ably by Costa. The album begins with a flutter of psychedelic echo effects, dissolving into gloriously lush string arrangements and lighthearted organ on "Nao Identificado," a brilliant opening track that introduces Costa's velvety voice, gently at first, as if to ease the listener into the new sounds about to be revealed. Softly glowing chamber pop arrangements like "Lost in Paradise" melt into unchained grooves and buzzing fuzz guitar bug-outs like the Gilberto Gil-aided "Namorinho de Portão" and the child-like singsonginess of "Divino Maravilhoso.

Album · 1969 · 12 Songs. Though there are still traces of bossa nova on Gal Costa’s sophomore album, it’s mostly a chance to marvel at how effortlessly (and beautifully) she pairs with tropicália’s strikingly chromatic soundscapes. The fuzzy guitars on Namorinho de Portão, the celestial strings on Baby, the manic percussion on Sebastiana -she powers through them with gusto and drama. A lesser singer may have gotten lost in the haze of American rock 'n' roll, British psychedelia, and Brazilian rhythms, but Costa thrives.

Trash Obsession
Are there any features to distinguish this from the 1st pressing?
Voodoozragore
The easiest way to tell if you are dealing with a counterfeit of this record actually lies more in the sleeve than the disk.The sleeve was made like a gate-fold but instead there is no inside to the cover, It is plain cardboard. The sleeve is also paper thin. I cannot imagine the bootlegger would go to the lengths of mimicking the sleeve.
