Persona

Weird, lo-fi, Brazilian psychedelic interludes that never really develop into anything. Almost like jingles, or vignettes from a Zé do Caixão film. I know very little about this other than I love it. I guess the band was called Persona, the album was called Son and this was released in 1975.

I know I sound like a broken record sir, but I just totally dig the words you put to your posts, even when they're short like this one. Wish I had the space on the hard drive to download everything you upload. Thanx for your time and energy.

I never tire of hearing it. Thanks for commenting. Get another hard drive, there is plenty more in the works.

I love the drums on "fogo" before the guitar comes in, will sample some of that!

That is album art of some serious awesomeness.

I follow the Hearse quite steadily, but there's usually a pretty substantial lag-time between when things are posted and when I manage to digest them. Hence, I comment long after anybody cares. Anyway, this is honestly one of my favorite things I've heard here. I don't quite know how to describe it, but there is something really weird and cool about this record. I loved it the first time I heard it, which is rare for me. Thanks for another great, obscure release that I never would have found otherwise.

Arend, it's never too late to comment. I'm glad you are appreciating this one, I love it so. You should check out Zé do Caixão (Coffin Joe) films if you haven't. For some reason this album reminds me a great deal of those films. Vaguely druggy, vaguely creepy, vaguely sexy and all Brasiliano!
