CD Reviews

Let it go
whiteboy01 | Lake City, PA United States | 08/21/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Great songs, and some crazy wailing rock guitars, if you like that sort of thing, but the first thing you notice on this disc is the awful sound quality. Unless you are a hardcore tropicalia fan or a great admirer of buzzing tinny treble noise drowning out vocals you better let this one pass you by."
Excellent show, Horrible sound quality

"In 1968, the Brazilian dictatorship briefly imprisoned Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, in an effort to curb the popular influence of the tropicalistas. Once the singers got their warning and were released, they promptly went off and staged several concerts as an act of political defiance, which in turn lead to their European exile. This CD is a document of two shows in July, 1969 -- spirited and adventurous pop-psychedelic rock, but with terrible sound quality. The guitars come in okay, though a bit muffled, but the powerful vocal performances are completely overmodulated. A tantalizing glimpse at Brazilian pop-psych in glorious full swing, and an important historical document, but ultimately a real drag to listen to. (Quoted from Slipcue E-zine)"
Appalling sound quality, great historical document

"If you're into the whole tropicalia mythology, then you must at least listen to this album... That being said, I didn't keep my copy... It's a reference work, rather than an album that's fun to listen to..."
