Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $49.99 102.99
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 BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time!

Maria BethaniaMel ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Used ... $14.99
A gentler, more laidback album that some of Maria Bethania's more dramatic efforts from the early 70s – but still a pretty great little record, served up with a sense of poise and power that few of her contemporaries could match! Backings are arranged by Perinho Albuquerque, in a way that's ... read more CD

✨✧ Chico BuarqueConstrucao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $11.99
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, ... read more CD
(Note: the CD has a few slight dips in sound at times, very brief and nothing major – and this is an issue with the original mastering of the record.)

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... About January 6, 2017
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 CostaIndia ... 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

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used ... $11.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting ... read more CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... 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 LeaoMeu Primeiro Amor ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Light and lovely tunes from Nara Leao – a sweet mid 70s session that's filled with great vocals and a fair bit of acoustic guitar! The sound here isn't nearly as dark as Leao's work of the 60s – and even as some of her albums from a few years before – but the record's still rich ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... read more CD

Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1975/1976/1980. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Three hard to find albums from this wonderful group – all packaged together in a single set! First up is 10 Anos Depois – smooth harmony vocals by the classic Brazilian quartet MPB4 – released on the 10th anniversary of the group, and an excellent example of the way they'd ... read more CD

✨✧ TimbaladaTimbalada ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
An important group in the development of new Brazilian musical styles during the 90s – with a bloco percussion groove at the core, and modern production over the top. Music melder Carlinhos Brown arranged and produced – which should explain the strength of the sound – and tracks ... read more CD

✨✧ Celia VazMutacao ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
Sublime vocals from the lovely Celia Vaz – a singer best known for her later work on the Far Out label, but one who really sparkles here in this classic fusion set! The album's one of the shining jewel's of the MPBC series – and like some of the others, it's got a sharp-edged quality ... read more CD

✨✧ Caetano VelosoCinema Transcendental (with bonus track) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Caetano VelosoMuito (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A late 70s gem from Caetano Veloso – masterfully understated, and handled in a mature "no tricks" mode, one that he began adopting strongly as he increased his abilities in songwriting and arranging in the latter half of the decade! The tracks are less crazy than on earlier records ... read more CD
