This was when the great Zeca Afonso (portuguese singer, unsung hero) was also in London, friend of Caetano and Gilberto.

One time, being Caetano, Gilberto and Zeca dinning, Cateno told Zeca that is friends were all asking him how was London and we wanted to answer with a song, but don't know how. Then, on the spot, Zeca came up with the lyrics of «London, London»

Also when Gal Costa "stole" «Milho Verde, Milho verde» from Zeca.
