Tropicalia 1968-1969: the Birth and Death of Tropicalia Vol. 1

Just scored an extensive handmade three-cassette compilation on the history of Brazilian Tropicalia the last time I paid a visit to Mississippi Records. Its pretty damn sweet. I see that Thizzfacedisco has already digitized Vol. 1, so I figured I'd throw ya'll that link to whet your appetite. Its been a tough week in terms of finding computer-time, etc, but I just wanted to let ya'll know that GC will posting some bonafide hot-ticket items within the week. And maybe (just maybe) I'll start rolling out my rips of Mississippi Records' very latest release- A 5-LP set of selections from Alan Lomax's Southern Journey. Eric told me I was the very first person to get the thing. It rules.

Now, back to this tropicalia business. These are rad comps. Here's the tracklist for the first volume. Rest assured, I'll have seperated the tracks & scanned the covers when my rips go up for vols 1-3. Dig it.
