Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66, “Righteous Life”

Here’s another post of mine from Larry Haley’s The Bop Shop.

This album swings away from the group’s bossa-nova bag into the folk-rock domain, with some heavily counterculture-influenced lyrics. This song in particular: so evocative of the early seventies. Also worth checking out: this album’s excellent covers of “Chelsea Morning” and “For What It’s Worth”.
