An amazing journey in music – the first 15 albums by Gal Costa, packaged here with a special book, and a 2CD set of rarities too! The evolution in style here is amazing – starting in the bossa years of the 60s, moving through key Tropicalia albums, then into some incredible 70s material that really shows Gal transforming strongly – changing from one of the more unruly forces of the underground, into a voice that would come to represent the sound of MPB for a generation! The package features records that include Domingo, Gal Costa (1969), Gal (1969), Legal, A Todo Vapor, India, Cantar, Gal Canta Caymmi, Caras E Bocas, Agua Viva, Gal Tropical, Aquarela Do Brasil, Minha Voz, Fantasia, and Baby Gal – all remastered, and presented with a 2CD set of rarities, and a sweet book too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sony (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
A contemporary set, but one with a very classic bossa feel – maybe even more so than most other recent work from Toquinho! As you'd guess from the title, the album pays tribute to Toquinho's frequent musical partner of the 70s – poet and lyricist Vinicius De Moraes, the man whose words ... CD
Bossa De Alma Nova
Albatroz (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
Beautiful bossa from the great Roberto Menescal – and a set that features breezy vocals from Andrea Amorim in the lead, with a style that's a lot like some of Menescal's previous projects with Wanda Sa! Menescal plays acoustic guitar, handles arrangements, and sings a bit too – ... CD
Os Bossa Nova
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2008. New Copy
A really warm and wonderful little record – one that features the collaborative talents of these four bossa nova giants, all coming together in a really relaxed, intimate setting! Although most of these artists didn't work together in the 60s, they all share a very similar spirit, and come ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1973. New Copy 3Discs
A tremendous package that brings together both the music and the film of Phono 73 – a groundbreaking live concert that brought together some of Brazil's greatest artists of the early 70s, and which was one of the biggest musical events of the decade! The all-star concert was one of the first ... CD
Agua
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy
We've always loved the music of Paula Morelenbaum, but this time around she's really got something special going on – thanks to keyboards and vocals from the legendary Joao Donato! Most of the tunes in the set are Donato numbers – themselves already a treat, but given a little ... CD
Philips/El (Brazil), 1962/1963/1964/1966. New Copy
Nearly 3 albums' worth of music from the legendary Tamba Trio – one of the grooviest groups in the 60s bossa years in Brazil! The trio are quite unique – in that they not only play upbeat bossa rhythms, but also harmonize along with their grooves – in a soaringly sublime quality ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Great early work from singer Gracinha Leporace – a vocalist you might know from her later work in Bossa Rio, or her recordings with husband Sergio Mendes! Even at the start, Gracinha's a hell of a singer – a vocalist who's capable of all the coolness of the bossa era, yet still richly ... CD
Philips/Bomba (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Quite possibly the clearest moment of genius ever from the legendary Hermeto Pascoal – a tremendous album that helped reshape instrumental Brazilian music for many years to come! At one level, the record shares a sound with some of the fuller, richer orchestrations going on in the post-bossa ... CD
Se Me Chamar O Sorte
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
Beautiful work from Wilson Das Neves – as mature and poised as his image on the cover, but still filled with the depth and soul we remember from years back! The vocals have this raspy charm that definitely underscores Wilson's years on this planet – and the backings have this warmth ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1968. New Copy
A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard ... CD
Build Up
Philips/El (UK), 1970. New Copy
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... CD
