Influenced by the American rock & roll of the '50s and the British Invasion sounds of the '60s, the Brazil 'Jovem Guarda' movement reached its peak at the mid-sixties. Lots of singers and bands appeared, some of them finding fame and fortune and turning into mega-stars during the next decades.
This compilation focuses on the lesser known and often overlooked singles that were released during the Jovem Guarda years, especially from the late '60s and early '70s, when the movement was close to an end. Here you'll find a superb mix of Brazilian styled groovy, fuzzed-out, psychedelic, soul-ish and beat sounds. Including famous names like Roberto Carlos, Jerry Adriani, Wanderley Cardoso and obscurities like Jose Roberto, this exciting comp will prove that the Jovem Guarda stars could be as groovy as their Tropicalia counterparts. Remastered sound, liner notes in Portuguese and pictures on back.
