It's been a stellar year for Far Out Recordings in 2019, and they tail things off nicely with a first time on vinyl issue of Milton Nascimento's ballet soundtrack Maria Maria. Recorded in 1976 and unreleased until 2003 on CD only, Maria Maria finally gets its rightful home on wax. The album finds Milton at his creative peak and features an all-star cast of musicians including Nana Vasconcelos, Joao Donato, Paulinho Jobim, and members of the band Som Imaginario. An essential release.
