Gobsmackingly wonderful late-model Tropicalia cum electrified/acid fried bossa/samba confections from the architect of the nutzoid Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos tropicalia spoof project and undisputed champion of questionable wardrobe choices (here apparently taking his sartorial cues from Hee-Haw's Minnie Pearl). The DNA reconfigurations of these forms by folks like Rodrigues, Marcos Valle and Azimuth/Azymuth (just to cite a few) in the early to mid 70's represent a fascinating and far less heralded dimension of adventurous Brazilian music of the era. Any of you sucked in by the wonders of Tropicalia and knocked sideways by the Lula Cortes/Marconi Notaro/Satwa camp thats recently come to larger attention via a spate of concurrent reissues will find this Rodrigues album to be a window into yet another throat-lump-inducing dimension of Brazilian brilliance.
