Tropicalia -- A Revolutionary Movement Of Sound
A compilation of some of the benchmark tunes of the Tropicalia musical revolution of late 60s Brazil -- 12 indisputably thrilling tunes -- even if the package is a bit bare bones given the reverential treatment the material has deservedly received in other quarters! This set from Universal US features the amazing anthems and adventurous tunes from Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes, Gilberto Gil and more -- and as such it's a fine starter set that should get you digging for much, much more! Titles include "Soy Loco Por Ti America", "Coracao Materno", "Alegria, Alegria" and "Bat Macumba" by Caetano Veloso, "Baby" by Gal Costa & Caetano Veloso, "Divino Maravilhoso" by Gal Costa, "Domingo No Parque" and "Luta Contra A Lata Ou A Falencia Do Cafe" by Gilberto Gil, "The Empty Boat" by Cag Costa & Jards Macale, "Bat Macumba" and "Adeus Mara Fula" by Os Mutantes.
Definitive remastered 18 track best of compilation blah, blah, blah, and contains all of the chart singles and features a 20 page booklet with comprehensive sleevenotes and lots of cool vocals and guitar chords--wooh-hoo!
Super-fun music, great for dancing on the dining-room table, driving across large landscapers, or loosing your virginity (again).
