1969 self-titled solo debut from the one Gal Costa. Those in the know recognize this as one of the finest releases to come out of Brazil's Tropicalia movement (not to mention one of Costa's most psychedelic moments). The album seamlessly flows between fuzzed-out psychedelic rock and smooth bossa nova, with a little on vocals help from fellow Tropicalia icons Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. If you can't drop the dough on an original copy, this 180g 4 Men With Beards repress does sounds excellent and comes at the nice price! Includes the classics "Baby," "Nao Identificado," as well as many others. Essential listening for fans of the Tropicalia sound.
