The damage DAT tape was physically recovered and its contents extracted in a long time consuming work. Listening to the "initial idea" of music that would become Soul Parsifal (later released on the album "A tempestade" da Legião Urbana), Marisa Monte felt the urge to finish with all the criteria of the initial idea. The 1993 demo song was recorded in a period of 15 minutes between in a break time during the recording session of "THE STONEWALL CELEBRATION CONCERT" the first solo album of Renato Russo.
