Tom Ze­‘The most eccentric, visionary and irreverent member of Brazil’s tropicalia movement’ -Los Angeles Times In celebration of this iconoclastic master of song, politics, satire and human relations, Luaka Bop is releasing a vinyl-only box set, Studies of Tom Ze Explaining Things So I Can Confuse You which pulls together for the first time a trilogy of “studies” on Brazilian musical styles—Massive Hits, Estudando o Pagode, and Estudando a Bossa. The latter two recordings have never been issued on vinyl and the former has never been available in the US. This retrospective collection from the first artist ever signed to Luaka Bop is limited edition and hand numbered.­ Cut in 180-gram vinyl, and in their complete original covers, the threerecord set also includes a live 45 of Ze’s legendary collaborative tour with Tortoise, recorded at London’s Barbican in 2001. To complete the retrospective treatment, Luaka Bop has added a CD featuring a 1993 conversation between Tom Ze, David Byrne, and Arto Lindsay, a 12-page booklet by noted Brazilian music scholar Chris Dunn, a touch of day glow, lots of varnished paper, and a modicum of cardboard with a splash of black.  Comes with a code to digitally download all vinyl content.

Praise for Tom Ze’s past Luaka Bop offerings…
‘Thrilling display of the vigorous intelligence that tends to lurk beneath Brazilian pop’s pretty surfaces’ –New York Times
‘..makes you feel like you’re in a tiny apartment twenty stories above a city of open sewers, big churches, and satellite dishes, and this scrawny guy with eyes like M&Ms is playing these oddball pop songs that make you want to laugh and cry.’ -Rolling Stone
‘The most eccentric, visionary and irreverent member of Brazil’s tropicalia movement.’­ -Los Angeles Times
‘..makes great Brazilian music for listeners who still aren’t completely sold on Brazilian music.’ -Spin
