Originally released in Brazil, 1969. Numbered edition of 500 pressed on 180 gram vinyl, housed in a heavy sleeve with a double-sided insert. "O Bando was recorded in 1969 in São Paulo by 5 guys and a beautiful singer, Marisa Fossa. The production was state-of-the-art, hosted by one of the 3 top producers of Brazil. For 1969 it was recorded in Scatena studios in São Paulo with 8 channel equipment, which was the best you could get at this time. The music has sophisticated brass arrangements, very much on the same level as US bands Chicago Transit Authority, The Flock and Blood Sweat & Tears, with the charm and rhythms of Brazil exotics. If you like the album by Liverpool, this one would be for you. A real summer record, should make the stoned psychedelic listener move his hips and dance or at least nod their feet. Great guitars, smashing vocals, Samba rhythm, horns, tons of effects, a real trip to Brazilian underground music. One of the best!"
