'Contos Velhos Rumos Novos' (1969) appears for the first time completely remastered by Soundgarden Hamburg as CD and LP on MAIS 5.

Born in 1929, JOSE AFONSO, also known as ZECA AFONSO or simply ZECA, became an icon in Portugal for the role his music played in the resistance against the dictatorial Estado Novo regime. His song 'Grândola, Vila Morena', which was officially banned in Portugal at the time, was used as the starting signal for the peaceful Carnation Revolution in 1974 and was broadcast on the radio on the night of April 25 to signal the Movimento das Forças Armadas (MFA) to oppose to raise the dictatorship. In the following years, over 15 albums were released, AFONSO played all over the world and is still considered a pioneering activist for human rights and against political oppression. On his third studio album 'Contos Velhos Rumos Novos' (1969) not only the tonal palette was expanded by new arrangements, but also the political development came to a head in the form of police persecution and an increasing ban on assemblies. Words of resistance become clearer.
