More description and Photos

Lula Côrtes e Zé Ramalho - "Paêbirú" - O caminho da Montanha do Sol - Brazilian Psychedelic freak Experimental Progressive Underground Record. Gatefold with 2-record set plus 8-page color booklet. Independent record, pressed by the experimental Solar label - a crazy arm from the small and regional Rozenblit company - Recife, Pernambuco state, in Brazil.



As we all know from the legend, in may of 1975, the Rozenblit Record Company was located at the edge of the Capibaribe River, in the city of Recife, capital of the northeastern state of Pernambuco. The 1,000 initials copies of Paêbirú had just been produced, when the Capibaribe River suddenly overflowed and flooded a large part of the company building. With a mighty effort, they managed to save only 300 copies of this record, which nowadays lay in the hands of a very few lucky record collectors worldwide. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE FEW REMAINING COPIES...


This album is considered as the MOST IMPORTANT of the Brazilian Psychedelic movement called "Desbunde Nordestino". It's TOP MEGA MEGA RAAAAAAAAAARE – There are only 300 copies worldwide!!! It's a CREAM of Brazilian Psychedelic!


The album is divided between Terra, Ar, Fogo, Agua (Earth, Air, Fire and Water). One element to name each of the four sides of the double LP.

It mixes Fuzz guitar with Brazilian percussion like Berimbau, Atabaques
and Tricordio (a Popular Morocco Sitar), Acoustic steel guitar, effects and voices.

A spatial sound mixed with Brazilian northeastern regional. Experimental recording techniques!
Acid trips grooved with traditional plenty of melodies using Mixolydian, Mixo #11 and Dorian modes / scales.

"Paêbirú is the rarest LP from Brazil. This concept masterpiece takes you to an acid trip into the Brazilian rain forest. Full of sounds, acoustic instruments and heavy fuzz guitar. If you like Ceremony from Japan you'll love this one"(

It's a SUPERB album, a Cream of Brazilian Psychedelic!
