Like Luiz Wanderley, Vieira has a fantastic and interesting voice. Retalhos Do Nordeste, one of the great LPs during the second wave of forró, has been reissued on vinyl and much of Luiz Vieira's work has been anthologized on LPs and CDs. One of the reasons that I started collecting forró vinyl was because of the paltry amount of reissues on CD. I don't particularly like vinyl. it's fragile, noisy and most forró vinyl was abused or badly pressed. Collecting the genre is frustrating. Viera is one of the few artists during the 1985-2005 big reissue period who had a few remasters here and there, but his classic albums did not get reissued completely on CD, so yet again, I am stuck with the vinyl.
