A legendary lost album from Brazilian songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho – recorded in Brazil in the mid 70s – blending avant psychedelia, rugged acoustic rhythms, and an enormous free spirit with delicate melodic touches and lilting jazzy elements! As is the case with the work of the best, most adventurous Brazilian artists of the time, it's a difficult sound to describe. It's a very atmospheric blend – sung and chanted vocals are no more or less important than any of the other elements – which include classical acoustic and fuzzy electric guitar, piano, organ, flute, sax and a range of percussion. It's free and psychedelic, but just reigned in enough to keep it tense and exciting. Pure greatness – hopefully bound to achieve some long overdue recognition! Tracks include "Trilha De Sume", "Culto A Terra", "Bailado Das Muscarias", "Nao Existe Molhado Igua; Ao Pranto", "Raga Dos Raios", "Nas Paredes Da Pedra Encantada", "Regato Da Montanha", Trilha De Sume" and more! New special edition 2 x LP pressing, finished to match the original specifications, now including the 8 page booklet.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar ...

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever!

Scepter/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy
Condello is Michael Condello – a pretty heady talent from the 60s who should have been huge, given the overall sound of this psych nugget from the time! Condello has this very sinister sort of vibe – folksy at the core, but electrified in really fuzzy, freaky ways – as if he ... LP, Vinyl record album

Drag City, 1975. New Copy
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... LP, Vinyl record album
