This album was recorded in 1969 in São Paulo by five guys and a beautiful singer named Marisa Fossa. The production was state-of-the-art, hosted by the three top producers in Brazil. It was recorded in Scatena studios in São Paulo with 8-channel equipment, which was the best you could get at the time. The music has sophisticated brass arrangements very much on par with U.S. bands Chicago Transit Authority, The Flock and Blood, Sweat & Tears with the charm and rhythms of Brazilian exoticism. If you like the album by Liverpool, you'll like this one, too. It's a real summer record that should make stoned psychedelic listeners move their hips and dance or at least tap their feet. Great guitars, smashing vocals, samba rhythms, horns, tons of effects -- a real trip to the Brazilian musical underground. Members include: Rodolpho Grani Junior (Rudy) (bass, acoustic guitar & vocals), Paulo Augusto de Castro (Paul) (lead guitar, acoustic guitar & vocals), Americo Issa (Meriquinho) (rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar & vocals), Eduardo Portes de Souza (Dudu) (drums & percussion), Diogenes Burani Di Grado Filho (Dió) (drums & percussion), Emilio Carrera Guimil (organ) and Marisa Belmonte Fossa (percussion & vocals).
