Rita Lee is one of Sao Paulo's best known daughters.Initially with the seminal band Os Mutantes during Tropicalia,and later with the band Tutti Frutti, Lee went on his own teamed with husband Roberto in the mid 1970s.Most of her subsequent works were top notch spawning Brazilian rock classics such as DOCE VAMPIRO,ALO MARCIANO & BALADA DO LOUCO.Her latest work,BALACOBACO features ballads(the hit AMOR E SEXO) and other songs that range from bossa nova such as COPACABANA BOY to a more uptempo song like As Mina DE SAMPA.The quality of arrangements, instrumentation and vocals are simply amazing. Rita comes across as a Peter Pan like woman who otherwise boasts a high degree of maturity.This transpires in the title track and in TUDO VIRA BOSTA .An interesting offering from the Brazilian Queen of Rock. --from an amazon.com reviewer
