Os Mutantes - The Earl, Atlanta GA 11-09-2010

Here is a nice sounding audience recording from last nights show at The Earl in Atlanta GA. Thanks to Brandon, for taking the time to record this show, and share it with us so quickly. Fans of Os Mutantes got a nice treat seeing them at The Earl, rather than its original intended place the larger Variety Playhouse. This intimate setting gives this recording a nice up close feel as well. So, have fun getting your Tropicalia on with the masters.
