A Bolha – Um Passo A Frente
Normally, at least as is the case around here, the notion of Brazilian rock conjures up images of Tropicalia; shades of Os Mutantes and Gilberto Gil, and in their infancy A Bolha were a part of this movement. They formed under the
name The Bubbles and performed at the time as Gal Costa's backing band. But a trip to the Isle of Wright Festival in '71 charged them with a sense of British heavy rock and they began to let in the wave of guitar bombast that came with bands like Humble Pie, Cream and especially in their organ arrangements, Deep Purple. They changed their name shortly after to A Bolha and in '73 they released Um Passo A Frente, which though regarded by collectors as a pinnacle of South American hard rock, eventually became a rarity. Poor promotion and distribution lead to its disappearance for quite some time but thankfully its been reissued in its original gatefold glory.
