This is some strange material! Originally intended as the title of Os Mutantes' second album, The Sixth Finger was refused by their label and the name was left to gather dust. In its reincarnated form the title bands together a collection of unreleased and live tracks, outtakes and advertising jingles. Many of them, like the wildly schizophrenic "A Voz Do Morto," feature the legendary Caetano Veloso. The cover image features a picture from the cancelled Mutant photo sessions for their second album and only hints at the madness within. The tracks here are definitely far more out there than anything we've heard from the band before. Certainly something for the psyche heads and the beardy weirdos out there. But don't let that description scare you away. Give the tracks a listen and let "The Sixth Finger" do its thing to you.
