Caetano called the Beat Boys, an Argentinean group settled in Sao Paulo who had been inspired by the Beatles, to accompany him in Alegria, Alegria. That , in fact marked the beginning of the Tropicalista thing. - Gilberto Gil

Along with Os Mutantes, the Boobás and the Beatniks, the Beat Boys represented the most radical element in Brazilian rock-their name, clothes, and hair were all fierce indicators of the hippie spirit, and this in a dangerous time for such self-sxpression. This disc includes the Beat Boys entire output under their own name: their sole album-an exercise in what one might call controlled Tropicalia - released by RCA Victor in 1968, as well as a rare singles track from the same year.
