Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol
Vinyl reissue of the last studio album by Os Mutantes before their break up in the late 70s. A brilliant progressive rock record by the legendary Brazilian band, Os Mutantes showed an interest in following international music trends from the very beginning of their career, when they moved away from the traditional sounds of their native Brazil in favour of psychedelia. The continuous changes characterized the group's history until its dissolution in 1978 and, as part of that evolution, they embraced progressive rock in their final albums. Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol was released in 1974, when Rita Lee was already focused on her solo career and Arnaldo Baptista had also left the group due to internal and personal problems. The only original member remaining, Sérgio Dias, along with bassist Liminha were responsible for composing most of these songs. Deixe Entrar um Pouco d'Agua No Quintal, Cidadão Da Terra or Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol clearly leave aside any reference to Tropicalismo to embrace instead the hardest sounds and progressive style of groups like Deep Purple or even Iron Butterfly. The keyboardist Túlio Mourão stars in some of the most intense moments of the album, along with the energetic and fierce guitar of Sérgio Dias. An example of their virtuosity is Pitágoras, written by Mourão, where piano and guitar take us into a progressive and almost psychedelic journey with music references as diverse as jazz and flamenco. Without any doubt, this is one of the strongest songs of the entire LP, and has still been part of the band's repertoire in recent tours.
