The only album by Brazilian Octopus is such a unique record. Each tune is a winner in this unusual mix of different styles and influences that transcends any possible category: from pop to Cuban rhythms. The bossa nova is obvi-ously also present, as in many other Brazilian recordings from 1969, but the complex arrangements make this record lean towards the jazzier side of things while the organ/guitar/vibes sounds will also appeal to garage music lovers. Among several top musicians, the band features Hermeto Pascoal, Cido Bianchi (former Milton Banana Trio member) and Lanny Gordin.
