Label: Som Livre Masters
The Os Brazoes' self-titled album was originally released on RGE Discos in 1969. It is a psychedelic masterpiece that fuses samba, r'n'b and rock'n'roll influences using fuzz guitars, synths, percussion, lush vocals and effects.
Os Brazoes formed in Rio de Janeiro in the late 1960s. They backed Gal Costa during her Tropicalia period, yet apparently never recorded in the studio with her. Miguel de Deus, the band's front man, recorded the highly sought after 'Black Soul Brothers' LP in 1977, which became an important record in the Black Rio movement. 'Os Brazoes' features covers of Gilberto Gil's 'Pega A Voga, Cabeludo' and Jorge Ben and Toquinho's 'Carolina, Carol Bela', and includes two songs that are also known from fellow Brasilians Liverpool.
