Description

Quarteto 1111 - Singles and Eps CD. A band that featured the most legendary musician in Portuguese pop music history (Jose Cid, widely reknowned in mellotron and progressive music circles), and yet this is the first chance weve had to hear anything by his legendary group; what we find is a very nicely packaged fifteen track collection of delicious melodic pop/psychedelia that leads off with Quarteto 1111s striking debut single A Lenda De El-Rei D. Sebastiao from 1967, a song which changed the course of pop music in Portugal; as with any band of quality in that heady time, Quarteto 1111 (Jose Cid in particular) had run-ins with the politicos, which caused some of their output to be surpressed; yet, here are tracks from every year between 1967-1971, including their two English language songs Ode to the Beatles and Back to the Country; the Beatles were obviously a very big influence on Quarteto 1111, which is evident in everything from melodic construction of the songs, to use of backward tape effects, instrumentation, string arrangements, etc.); booklet has some notes on the bands history, empahsizing the importance of A Lenda De El-Rei D. Sebastiao. A poetic band, well-represented.

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
