Early work by this important Brazilian jazz singer – working here with a dream bossa group that includes Milton Banana on drums and Tenorio Jr on piano, in a live setting that shows her at the peak of her powers! The feel of the set is in a hard bossa mode with jazzy touches – and the ... read moreCD
One of the best 80s albums from this always-solid Brazilian artist! Joao's not only in fine form vocally, but he has some top-shelf help from Adair Blanc, who co-wrote most of the songs with Joao, and from Cesar Camargo Mariano, who produced and arranged the whole album. Mariano's talent is the ... read moreCD
Wild! This ex-Mutantes member hits a sort of space rock sound, with a weird set of materials that sort of mixes an early 70's space rock guitar sound with Wings-like production for a more pop feel. Our Portuguese is terrible, so we can't read the lyrics and get hip to the concept, but the inside ... read moreCD

Felino ... CD Polydor (Brazil), 1983. Used ....
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista are still in the group at ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly the last truly sublime album ever recorded by Os Mutantes – a set that's a bit more rock-oriented then their first few, but still pretty revolutionary overall! The group have expanded to a quintet at this point, but haven't yet falling into the guitar-heavy groove of later ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A landmark LP! This is the first – and the wildest – album by this legendary group that was one of the founding forces of the Tropicalia movement. The music is a wonderful blend of 60s rock and early MPB stuff, with crazy production and a great sense of humor that still keeps the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary album! This previously unreleased album by Os Mutantes was supposed to be their breakthrough album to an English speaking market – but for years it's only been talked about in hushed whispers, and has only been heard by a lucky few! The record was recorded in Paris in 1970 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Tita ... CD
1965. New Copy ....
Around December 4, 2013
Bossa vocals from the lovely Tita – a lesser-known singer of the Brazilian scene of the 60s, but a great one too – with a voice that's as heavenly as any of her better-known contemporaries! The backings on the set are every bit as great as the vocals – penned by Eumir Deodato, ... read moreCD
Caetano Veloso at the end of the 70s – still sounding wonderful, but in ways that are quite different from his earliest albums! The sound here is more restrained, and more mature – a beautiful example of the songwriting strength that Veloso evolved as his career moved on – tunes ... read moreCD

$14.99Out Of Stock
Beautiful early duets from Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – much more of a bossa-styled album than any of the late 60s Tropicalia albums from the pair! The set's got a really wonderful sort of feel – bossa at some level, but also with some of the gentle darkness that Caetano and Gal ... read moreCD
A gem of a record – one of a few Brazilian sides cut in Paris during the 60s by Laura Villa – an Italian singer by birth, but one who does a wonderful job here with bossa nova! The set's got all the complex charm of a Brazilian classic on Elenco or Forma – with arrangements that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really standout set from Brazilian rocker Ronnie Von – easily one of his greatest records ever, and a set that shows some wonderful steps forward in production and arrangements! Ronnie's still got a rock approach at his core, but he's often working here with fuller backings that include ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von – an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here – strong echoes of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
