Os Brazões (Self-Titled)

Year : 2014/1969
Label : Mr Bongo/RGE Discos
Genre : Latin Rock, MPB

Os Brazoes self-titled album was originally released on RGE  in 1969, the unique record of the group formed in Rio De Janeiro in the late sixties. Lead by Miguel De Deus (the front man of Black Rio movement), the band started as backing band for Gal Costa and Tom Zé during the emblematic period of Tropicália. This Brazilian Psychedelic nugget is a masterpiece of Latin Rock with North American influences,  which fuses elements from Samba, Funk/Soul & Acid Rock, including covers songs from Gilberto Gil ("Pega A Voga Cabeludo",  "Volksvolkswagen Blue"), Jorge Ben/Toquinho ("Carolina, Carol Bela", "Que Maravilha") or Tom Zé (Feitiço), instrumental by Brazilian Octopus (Momento B/8) and their well-known song "Gotham City".
