I just heard a cover of Os Mutantes' "Baby" by Gal Costa. I'm not gonna fight it. I started revisiting old stuff, and I got sucked in again. Before I high tail it, I gotta say, that cover photo above is some kind of unattainable cool, isn't it? That thing that Anita Pallenberg had in her prime. Maria Schneider too, Last Tango In Paris-era. The high priestess of lady cool, Brigitte Bardot, in her every burp and fart. Gal Costa exudes that sort of cool, only she has a voice and she's Brazilian. Tropical cool. Yeah baby. And she's made some really great records. Check out the fifteen at Super Sonido. It's an awesome cross section. And read the text. He's got the profile and music stuff covered. Oh, and on "Baby"? She's singing it to me, Just so you know.
