Poor quality control, Two copies I've bought now both severely warped. Annoying.

An absolute solid album from the masters of Brazilian '60s psych.

In a worthy and truthful history of art, this should be considered as important as La Gioconda.

Over the years I’ve simply been plagued by folks saying that I had to listen to Os Mutantes, that the album was a whimsical psychedelic masterpiece, baroque pop that was fragile, opalescent, nearly porcelain, widely varied and inventive. At the time of this album’s release, the band Os Mutantes (meaning mutants) were touted as being just kids, though they were in fact geniuses, musically skilled, seeming to be all-knowing when it came to popish psychedelic meanderings, with one music reviewer calling them “frighteningly brilliant.”

Much was made of this trio of teenagers in flashy mod clothing from Sao Paolo, Brazil, comprised of Rita Lee, along with brothers Arnoldo and Sergio Baptista, though truth be told, the band is rather amateurish and highly beholden, to the point of plagiarism to many (the Beatles) who’ve tread this path before them. But it was 1967 when the trio began making waves, a time of inspiration, when the world of music was reaching in all directions for new ideas, sounds and original visions. That said, the music found on their first outing Os Mutantes is very awkward and challenging for most listeners, to the point where most people simply give-up out of frustration, lack of sustained interest, or boredom … where a mere four years later the band would be making worthless dull progressive rock.

While American’s were listening to the silky smoothness provided by the likes of Herb Alpert, Os Mutantes were exploring the darker more disturbing side of Brazilian politics and life, using their music in a subversive manner to comment on and inspire revolution and protests … sort of making them the Jefferson Airplane of the southern hemisphere, though without nearly as much talent or vision. Distortion is delivered full throttle on many of the ridiculously loud fuzzed out songs that seemed to deconstruct right before my eyes/ears, where I can imagine some might call this nothing short of chaotic joy. Nearly every song on this album is entirely different than any other, and there is absolutely no connection or foray from one song into another, leaving my head uncomfortably spinning.

I can assure you that in 1968, perhaps two other people on the planet thought that they got what Os Mutantes was doing, and Mutantes played relentlessly right to them. Nearly fifty-five years later, folks such as David Byrne (Talking Heads) has reissued their albums, claiming that this is forbidden fruit of the finest magnitude (my words, not his). Though I’d suggest that the album wasn’t very good in 1968 for the same reason it’s not very good today, it’s just that today we have these hipsters who will claim to find beauty anywhere, within any disconnected chord structure. I firmly believe that Os Mutantes had utterly no idea what was being related in American and British psychedelic songs, that the band merely captured the image (clothing) of the time, then capitalized on the re-envisioning those sounds, taking fuzzed out guitars and such to exceptional lengths while trying to convince the world that they were avant garde, that like Pee Wee Herman, they’d fallen off the bicycle on purpose.

*** The Fun Facts: Arnaldo Baptista, the original bassist, dove deeply into LSD during the 70’s and 80’, doing a bit of psychological damage, made worse by a rather long coma due to a fall from a rather high window.

Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain was famously a big fan, having once sent a letter to Arnaldo Baptista requesting that the band reunite.

A nice reissue of this classic record. It douns really good. But a little extra packaging would have been nice.

As others have mentioned, it is a decent sounding press with no surface noise whatsoever. I feel like the record could probably use a better mastering as I had to turn up the volume a bit so that it could sound "punchy" and dynamic but overall, this pressing gets the job done at an affordable price.

How's the sound on this? It seems to be the first available issue in the States that isn't the Lilith pressing.

Prior to owning this Lilith press, I had the more recent Brazilian mono reissue. The latter had deeper, more robust and ultimately warmer sound. However, it was plagued with quality control issues with surface noise galore. So much so that it was distracting and I got rid of my copy after the first listen. It's a shame, but that's how it goes with most Brazilian pressings. While I'm not as impressed with the source/mastering on the Lilith press, it does get the job done without the distraction of an absurdly noisy disc.

This is the one I'd recommend until a superior reissue hits the shelves.
