Meireles e Sua Orquestra: Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 - Uma Odisséia no Espaço) [1974]

from the album Brasilian Explosion

I just got back from a trip to Buenos Aires, and while there I did some pretty serious crate-digging. This is the first fruit of my "labors" -- Meireles covering Deodato covering Kubrick covering Strauss (later covered by Phish). Love the extensive Moog on this, and also that great Brasilian percussion instrument that sounds a little like an excited chimp -- Airto plays it a lot on "Live Evil"... what's it called? Oh yeah, a cuica.

Just another romantic holiday with your significant other, crate diving? Life is good.

Phish wished they could play it like this! This is one hot track!

Hey, who originally arranged the rock-anthem version of this song?

Thanks for posting this gem...
