Sociedade Da Gra-Ordem Kavernista
SESSAO DAS 10 (1971) (180G LP)
12" Vinyl BE
A wonderfully wild album back on 180 gram vinyl.
A wonderfully wild album – every bit as much as you'd guess from the cover – by a group that provided an early showcase for the talents of Raul Seixas and Sergio Sampaio – both artists who'd later have a big impact on Brazilian music in the 70s! The cover might look as trippy as a Tropicalia album, but these guys are maybe lightly looser overall – still with a talent for mixing together odd and offbeat elements, often with a nice degree of wit – but also groovy enough to make some of their songs swing nicely, with a very catchy vibe! The group also features the lovely Miriam Batucada and Edy – who both get a chance to sing too – and titles include "Eta Vida", "Quero Ir", "Eu Acho Graca", "Sessao Das 10", "Dr Paxeco", "Finale", "Todo Mondo Esta Feliz", and a great version of the Antonio Carlos E Jocafi tune "Soul Tabaroa".
