After cutting their first couple of tropicalia classics, Arnaldo Baptista figured all that separated him and his merry Mutantes from global Beatles-esque adulation was the language barrier. So while in France in 1970, they tried recutting their best tunes, singing kooky English lyrics (She's My Shoo Shoo?) instead of their nutty Portuguese verse. It didn't work. The rewrites only served to undermine the group's well-contrived witchy mystique, and Technicolor was shelved indefinitely.
Now 30 years later, the failed experiment has been officially released with illustrations by recent convert Sean Ono Lennon, yet the first two Mutantes albums remain their finest freak-outs.
