BRAZILIAN GUITAR, FUNK BANANAS
Label: Tropicalia In Furs Records/World Psychedelic Funk Classics
Following the success of Psych Funk 101, Egon presents Joel Stones’ Brazilian Guitar, Fuzz Bananas. If Psych Funk 101 was the freshman seminar in global-psychedelic grooves, then this album should serve as a master class for those entranced by the funky, heavy psychedelic wonders of the Tropicalia movement and all that it spawned.
Each song contained on this album has never been reissued, and has been restored from the best source possible and remastered for near-perfect sound quality. The Enhanced CD comes with a 48 page full color booklet and contains a wealth of imagery and detailed annotation and liner notes in both English and Portuguese. The documentary contained on the CD – What Are Fuzz Bananas – details the making of this anthology and sources interviews from Rio de Janeiro to Los Angeles with the likes of the compilation’s Marisa Rossi and Cut Chemist, Egon and Elijah Wood. The gatefold 2LP comes with an oversized 12×12” full color booklet with all of the liner notes and photos from the CD and contains original artwork on the inside (3D glasses included in the first pressing).
