Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66 – Fool on the Hill

I found this in one of the underneath bins at Rasputin, and for $0.50 I couldn’t pass it up. It is actually a bootleg, which explains its low price, but otherwise its a great copy of a great album by the most popular Brazilian group in the U.S. Fool on the Hill is another perfectly cromulent cover of a Beatles song by Brasil ’66, and the rest of the songs are great loungy, adult contemporary music to play during get-togethers or while you are cooking dinner. Also has the Simon and Garfunkel song Scarborough Fair, and other fun ones like Fiesta.

Update: I have since bought a non-bootleg copy of this record, I can’t hear any difference in sound.
