Press Release :
This Brazilian classic finally gets a proper US release -- one of the greatest psychedelic albums of the late 60s, and a key part of the Tropicália movement as well!

The record is easily the most tripped-out album ever from Gal Costa -- far more sinister than Gal's debut of a few months before. The session was still recorded with full arrangements by the legendary Rogerio Duprat (who'd worked previously with Costa, Os Mutantes and other), but also features a lot of heavier guitar and a blazing psychedelic feel overall.

Gal's usually sweet vocals take on a much share on a much sharper edge - and the album's awash in the political power and cultural experimentation that characterized the best years of Tropicália. Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil make a guest appearance , and also contribute some songs to the set -- as do Jorge Ben, Jards Macale, and Roberto & Erasmo Carlos.

First time on CD in the US -- and newly remastered with liner notes from Chris Dunn, author of "Brutality Garden: Tropicália & The Emergence Of A Brazilian Counterculture".
