"Re-issue of this monster rarity. Originally custom pressed in 1980,
â€˜Rosa de Sangueâ€™ is the closing chapter of the amazing Recife
psychedelic movement that flourished and centred around the work of Lula
CÃ´rtes, beginning in 1973 with the release of Satwa, and the creation
of â€˜abracadabraâ€™, Lulaâ€™s loose art/music/design collective. â€œI want to
close all of this with a golden keyâ€â€¦ and a golden key it is.
Entering a small local studio with a head full of songs and his
freshly road tested â€˜mountains bandâ€™, Lula created an album simply
overflowing with ideas. Along with his power trio backing, he was
further assisted by many old friends dropping in, including, among many
others: AlÃ§eu ValenÃ§a, Flaviola, ZÃ© de Flute & Paulo Rafael.
The sound veers from crazed ethno folk-rock, to magical, gentle,
jungle folk psych zones, to hard hitting, coke dusted fuzz rock, to
insane mutant disco dance floor groove, to tweaked Americana, to acid
vocal raga trance, and way beyondâ€¦ â€¦ at some point while the album was
being recorded & pressed Lula signed a major label contact
which would produce 1981â€™s far tamer â€˜O Gosto Novo da Vidaâ€™ LP.
When his new label got wind of â€˜Rosa de Sangueâ€™s eminent release,
they were displeased to say the least. As soon as the pressing was
complete, the entire small edition was seized and destroyed, making this
album by far Brazilâ€™s rarest. So rare, in fact, that even among the
most hardcore Brazilian collectors the original LP is often only
rumoured to exist, often cited as â€˜unreleasedâ€™â€¦ a few copies did however
Packaged in the original vintage style cover with exact reproduction
original artwork and pressed on 180gm audiophile vinyl.Â Many thanks to
Nemo Bidstrup of Time-Lag Records for the copy used here." - MR BONGO
