Editorial Reviews

This CD reissue of Profana doesn't bring a representative moment from Gal Costa. She had success with this album, with songs like Caetano Veloso's rock "Vaca Profana," along with "Atrás da Luminosidade," "Onde Está o Dinheiro" and a medley with three Northeastern composers, including the song "Cabeça Feita," from the great Jackson Do Pandeiro, with special guest Luiz Gonzaga (all these songs are in up-tempo, hot regional grooves which had already given her one of the biggest successes of her career, "Festa do Interior," from Fantasia, 1981), and also "Ave Nossa" and "Chuva de Prata" (a very kitsch tune). The album shows Costa with her splendid vocal qualities and the usual competent instrumental backing in a happy, danceable setting, but doesn't represent an especial mark in her career. ~ Alvaro Neder

Depois de 16 anos na Philips, Gal Costa assinou com a RCA em 1984 com ares de superstar. Estourou o rock-título, Vaca profana, composto por Caetano em sua homenagem, mais as baladas "Chuva de prata" e "Nada mais", versão de Lately, de Stevie Wonder, que fez Liza Minnelli ir às lágrimas ao ouvi-la num show, graças à sua impactante interpretação. Além disso, Onde está o dinheiro tocou no carnaval e Atrás da luminosidade foi tema de um programa dominical da TV Manchete. Ela também lançou neste disco o clássico Topázio, de Djavan. Um momento explosivo da cantora.
