A special box set of work from this key member of Os Mutantes – one that looks at all the many facets of his compelling solo career! The first album in the set is the landmark Loki – an incredibly crazy and messed-up album of tracks cut by Arnaldo Baptista after the breakup of Os ... read more CD

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in ... read more CD

✨✧ Jorge BenJorge Ben (1969) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the ... read more CD

✨✧ Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked treasure from the great Jorge Ben – an album recorded between the fame of his "Taj Mahal" hit and Africa Brasil classic – and a set that's every bit as wonderful as those two records! There's a tight, choppy groove to most of the set – that mix of samba, ... read more CD

✨✧ Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $24.99
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 ... read more CD

Maria BethaniaPersonalidade ... CD
Philips (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $8.99
A pretty nice little collection of Maria's work for Philips – mostly from the mid 70s, when she was working in that wonderful baroque mode of hers, extra-dramatic, with lots of wonderful arrangements that propelled songs by Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, and others into a whole new territory! ... read more CD

✨✧ Luiz Bonfa & Maria ToledoBraziliana (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips/Vivid (Brazil), 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with ... read more CD

Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier ... read more CD

Gal CostaCantar (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. Used ... $13.99
A real moment of beauty from Gal Costa in the 70s – a set that moves away from her more experimental music of the Tropicalia generation, and yields a more personal approach overall – one that's quite similar to the best from Caetano Veloso at the time! As with Caetano during this shift ... read more CD

Philips (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio ... read more CD

✨✧ Wilson Das NevesSamba-Tropi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the ... read more CD

✨✧ Joao DonatoLugar Comum (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots ... read more CD

✨✧ Lindolpho Gaya & Rogerio DupratOs Maestros Premiados ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
An amazing split album – one that features instrumental work by 2 of our favorite arrangers ever! Both Gaya and Rogerio Duprat were key forces in the sound of Brazil at the end of the 60s – Gaya for his soaring, leaping, often-funky arrangements for EMI/Odeon during the Blue Brazil ... read more CD

Gilberto Gil & Jorge BenGil E Jorge ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. Used ... $18.99
A legendary meeting of two giant talents in Brazilian music – and a set that's maybe one of the best albums of the decade by both artists involved! The album has a raw, acoustic vibe – the kind of sound you'd expect from the cover photo of Jorge Ben and Gilberto Gil playing guitars ... read more CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... read more CD

Nara LeaoManha De Liberdade (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful early gem from Nara Leao! This one has a similar feel to her classic O Canto Livre album – in that it's got a deeper approach than some of her bossa work, with a mix of some of the more complicated, slightly folksy styles used by singers like Geraldo Vandre or Chico Buarque De ... read more CD
