Barcode:

Catalog no.: MRB70000136

Item ID: 461040

One of the rarest records in the world by Os Mutantes before they were Os Mutantes. Heavyweight Brazilian psychedelic rock and folk. O'Seis were the core members of the mighty and legendary Os Mutantes, namely Rita Lee and brothers Arnaldo and Sérgio Baptista, accompanied here by Raphael Vilardi, Maria 'Mogguy' Malheiros and Luiz Pastura. The record features anthemic, heavyweight, psychedelic rock on 'Suicida' b/w deeper, tripped-out MPB-folk on 'Apocalipse'. Both tracks were written by Rita Lee, assisted by Tobe and Vilardi respectively. The term "holy grail" is a little overused these days perhaps, but this definitely is one. Originally pressed and released by the band themselves in 1966, apparently only a handful of copies are known to exist (sources/numbers vary). The record has changed hands for up to a staggering $5000! Ouch.
