Build Up - Rita Lee

Build Up
In the mid Sixties, Sao Paulo born vocalist Rita Lee met brothers Arnaldo and Sérgio Dias Baptista and founded the most important Brazilian rock group of all time, Os Mutantes. In 1970, she released her first solo album 'Build Up', though she remained with Os Mutantes until the end of 1972, when she left the band. Os Mutantes were very much Brazil's answer to western pop culture venturing constantly into entirely uncharted creative and political waters. Indeed they were eventually deported to France by the Brazilian military dictatorship and it is said that as a subversive act Rita Lee planned at one point to fill the Sao Paulo water supply with LSD. Lee and Os Mutantes were central to the Troplicalia movement that in oppressive social circumstances revolutionised attitudes and Brazilian popular music. Protagoists included Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil, Tom Ze and the gifted arranger Rogerio Duprat who it may be claimed was to Os Mutantes what George Martin was to The Beatles. Certainly Rogerio's name on any record of those days is considered the mark of quality. For 'Build Up' Duprat provides the orchestral arrangements while the album is produced by Lee's then partner Arnaldo Baptista. It is an exciting piece of work. Eclectic in style; dominated by original material and a sinister reading of The Beatles' 'And I Love Her'. 'Build Up' received a mixed reception in 1970 but like Lee herself has come to be regarded as the product of a golden age and a national treasure.

No Smoke Without Fire: Expanded Edition
After nearly 30 years of waiting we can finally announce the release of Tracie's long awaited 2nd album 'No Smoke Without Fire'. It was originally intended for release in 1985.

•    This is the first time the album has been available as a complete collection, on CD or any format.

•    This 17 track collection features ten of the tracks intended for the original album plus seven bonus tracks.

•    The bonus tracks include versions of Tracie's singles; ‘The House That Jack Built’ - 1st Mix, ‘I Can't Leave You Alone’ - Pick 'n' Mix version and ‘(When You) Call Me’ penned by Paul Weller. Also featured are demo versions of ‘The Waking Hours’, and ‘Good For You’ and the 7" version of ‘Baby Come Back’ and ‘19’ - The Wickham Mix.

•    The 1st Mix of Tracie's best known single ‘The House That Jack Built’ is included. It was intended to be the single version before Paul Weller decided to speed it up and make other minor changes. The resulting version then went on to peak at #9 in the UK singles chart.

•    Tracie has written the detailed sleeve notes for this release.

•    A comprehensive CD booklet has been produced with a new front cover design, a full UK discography and photos from Tracie's own collection from behind the scenes on tour in Japan and elsewhere.

•    Tracie was signed by Respond Records after sending in a demo, thanks to an advert in Smash Hits magazine. Within days she was in the studio with Paul Weller and the resulting debut single, ‘The House That Jack Built’ followed in Spring 1983, peaking at #9 in the UK singles charts. Tracie went on to enjoy chart and critical success with her soulful pop, with seven further singles released along with the Far From The Hurting Kind album.
