Spectrum - Geração Bendita album download
Soundtrack to the movie Geração Bendita (Blessed Generation). Originally released in 1971, the movie was banned in Brazil. The album assembles twelve songs with lyrics in Portuguese and some in English, most of them speaking about peace, love, freedom, nature and other themes and meaningful values of that time.
Spectrum's Geraçào Bendita (Blessed Generation) came out in Brazil in 1971, sold poorly, and went forgotten until the 1990s brought a revival of the genre and record collectors began to dig up old recordings, at which point it became a sought-after rarity. The German label Shadoks reissued it in 2002. More than a curiosity, this album chronicles the difficult emancipation of a generation.
Spectrum- comprised of one-name wonders Fernando, Ramon, Caetano, Serghino and Tiao- was formed in the late 60s by a group of local Rio de Janeiro kids who had a fondness for the Beatles and imported ideas of the hippie revolution. Most of their instruments belonged to their school (they started the band as teens), or were borrowed or handed down. They practiced at school, and were fairly popular for birthday parties and clubs. Shortly after christening themselves Spectrum, they were invited to contribute the soundtrack to "Brazil's First Hippie Film", Geração Bendita.
But for collectors, Spectrum's Geração Bendita was always something of a holy grail. The soundtrack to a 1972 Brazillian film of the same name, Geração Bendita has long been out of print. The film itself, which looks from the stills like some sub-Roger Corman exploitation exercise, was banned at the time
Geração Bendita é anunciado como "o primeiro filme hippie brasileiro" desde seu lançamento, o que nos leva a perguntar: qual terá sido o segundo, o terceiro e os demais filmes hippies nacionais? Neste vídeo assistimos um registro do 12° Encontro Nacional de Comunidades Alternativas, que contou com cerca de . 00 participantes na comunidade Holocósmica, em Pouso Alto, Serra da Mantiqueira, Minas Gerais, de acordo com o texto Somos todos um : vida e imanência no movimento comunitário alternativo (Caravita, 2012).
The album assembles twelve songs with lyrics in Portuguese and some in English, most of them speaking about peace, love, freedom, nature and other themes and meaningful values of that time. Accentuated with plenty of fuzz guitars and vocals in a ‘Beatles-style’, the record was hailed as a world-class production and the talents of the group above the national standard of that time.
