'Venham Mais Cinco' (1973) 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. As the last album to be released during the revolution, Venham Mais Cinco formulates direct criticism, draws attention to the grievances and calls for a political revolution. Musically, Afonso perfected everything he had previously experimented with: African rhythms meet experimental song structures!
