Tim may not be the most profound pop star who ever lived but this funky, soulful 1970’s Brazilian makes up for it with some tight grooves and a quite wild hairstyle.
Many of you may have been ignorant of his existence before this post but I am here to spread the word about the Afro headed one.
World Psychedelic Classics Volume 4 have recently issued a collection of his more accessible tracks and it’s a great primer for fans of Brazilian music and seventies soul and funk.
I’m not sure of why he is considered psychedelic apart from his strange assertion that human beings are really aliens from another world, which suggests at the very least some heavy, heavy drug intake and at worst a high degree of madness.
Then again a similar belief didn’t stop Mitt Romney running for President.
Maybe if he’d been as funky and far out as Tim Maia he would have won.
Anyway I include a link to tracks from the album, as well as a link to the Amazon page which will allow Tim Maia to quietly blow your minds.
