Music: Rita Lee

"Original vocalist of Os Mutantes, Brazil's greatest pop group of the late sixties, Rita Lee begins here, in 1970, her solo career which lasts until today. Although it was recorded in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, "Build Up" always feels like a very European Tropicalia. Pay special attention to some gems included in this ecletic album, like "José" (a very touching version of Moustaki's original "Joseph"), the exotic "Hulla-Hulla", the semi-spanish tango "Prisioneira do Amor" or the electric Lennon-McCartney's classic "And I Love Him"."
