"Sergio Mendes Brazil 66" is one of the coolest groups OF ALL TIME!

But still, look, were the Beatles or were NOT the Beatles the first in almost every field that defined rock after 1963? Do you want a list?

It's like saying "I don't like rock & roll after 1963" - which is a much more interesting idea.

Like their music or don't, I really don't think they had any effect on the Tiki scene, either. It's kind of a modern Tiki myth that the music of the time somehow wiped out the movement, but in fact Oceanic Arts was just getting started right about then. It doesn't add up.

Most of the Tiki scene started in the 1920s, got a head of steam in the 1930s, and peaked in the 1950s, it was on a downswing in the 60s and you could as easily blame Pop Art or Color TV as the Beatles for its downfall...

Lucas, It is most certainly your right to feel the way you do...don't ever let anyone let you think otherwise. If you think everything about the 60's sucked...well, ok -

But dude, don't forget about the 70's too...avocado appliances, burnt sienna and orange plaid furniture, and Muskrat Love hovering in the top 10. Uck! Still, I think the 70's pooped out some pretty decent tuneage...

So many of the British Invasion groups were flat-out ripoffs of the Beatles.

Lookit these guys, I forget their band name, but here they are in 1964. Big Lennon-style acoustic guitar for rhythm, Harrison trademark hollow body, wearing Beatles moptops all around and Beatles-hip Carnaby Street fashions. Only thing missing is the Hofner Violin Bass, but you don't want to be TOO obvious about it, do ya lads?



These guys even copied Lennon's publicly stated love of Bo Diddley by tracking down his records (not readily available outside of Liverpool, it was a bit of a hunt) and copying whole sections for their 'own' music, mostly covers anyway.

If you want to be famous, you couldn't do much better than simply copy whatever was on John Lennon's mind in 1963, and adopt the Boy Group image newly invented by the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein.

Look, they're even smoking in this posed shot, - it's a style; the cigarettes were just lit, they're barely burned down - again just like the Beatles made famous with their endless bad-boy puffing in the early daze....

That's my brother, Garth Vigor, when he was 3 months old. How did you get that picture?

Aren't they, though!

I have every single album from Sergio Mendes (well, CDs that is) and I never get tired of listening to them. When I was a kid I had the biggest crush on the lead singer Lani Hall, then she had to go and marry Herp Albert.

I really like some of Sergio's earliest stuff. It's far more jazz based.

This was a band that really kept the swinging lush life style of the late 50's, early 60's going. Their album covers are fantastic, the songs are fantastic, and the bassist on a lot of it, Sebastian Nieto, is one of my favorite players. And in my opinion, (as is true for a lot of Beatle's songs) their cover versions of Beatles songs are pretty much the only versions I have ever liked. They somehow manage to make them sound "funky" and swinging.

Lani Hall was the perfect 60's doe-eyed gal gifted with a set of professional pipes, but Janis Hansen had a voice that reached for the stars in the original '66 group.

Hansen broke with the group and did regular TV appearances (she later played Felix Unger's ex-wife in "The Odd Couple") all through the 60s - but I'm still trying to listen to her later group's album, "The Carnival"...

I was always interested in the fact that neither of those two gals could speak portuguese, and relied on phonetically learning the lyrics. I had no idea that Janis was on the odd couple. Very cool!
Sergio's later albums became more trippy. After a brief flirtation with disco and soft rock, he really got more "brazilian", but more like the music of Milton Nasciemento or even Tom Ze.

The only album he has done that was a total dissapointment to me was the latest one. And that is because it is a hip hop album with the black eyed peas. Rap music with Sergio? I know he was a master at incorporating the latest trends, but this was too much. Will.I.Am. from black eyed peas has no business being on a brazilian music album.
If you listen to it, you hear this guy going "uh, uh, yeeah, uh, uh, 1 fo the bass, 2 fo the treble, yo"

Very thought provoking rap lyrics, there.

They destroyed the version of "surfboard" by adding rap lyrics, among other abominations on that album. This is the first time in my life I threw a CD in the trash.

I didn't go see Sergio's latest tour for exactly all the reasons mentioned above. It's too bad with the recent interest in smooth jazz/acid lounge/hip 60's music that he doesn't go back to basics and do a great little jazz album & tour.

These days he seems pretty intent on playing to stadiums full of people uninterested in his music. Go figgur.

This thread was funny to read, I loved the Beatles as a kid though I'm sick of the same 5 songs they play all the time, just like all the good oldie - classic rock bands, dig deeper there more than love me do.
