✨✧ Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $19.99
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 BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
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 BethaniaMel ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Luiz BonfaBrazilian Scene ... CD
Philips/Verve (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... About June 15, 2018
A great little session from Luiz Bonfa – one that features a hip core combo mixed with slightly larger backings – all in a groove that really stands out from other mainstream bossa albums of the 60s! Bonfa's acoustic guitar is set up here with Jerome Richardson on flute, Don Payne on ... read more CD

✨✧ Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1984) (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueConstrucao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it!

Chico BuarqueMeus Caros Amigos ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1976. New Copy ... On May 25, 2018
A wonderful mid 70s album by Chico Buarque – proof that he was still one heck of a songwriter, and a pretty decent singer, despite the fact that he'd grown a silly-looking moustache! The production's very nice, too – with that excellent compressed sound that was being used on some ... read more CD

Philips (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 CostaAquarela Do Brasil ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1980. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
Gal pays tribute to the great work of Ary Barroso in this moody set of tracks arranged by Roberto Menescal and Perna Froes. The sound is similar to some of Gal's other smooth LPs from the time, with a nice undercurrent of jazz that works well with Barroso's compositions. Caetano Veloso joins Gal ... read more CD

Gal CostaCantar ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
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

Gal CostaGal (1969) ... CD
Philips/Mercury (Brazil), 1969. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from ... read more CD

Philips/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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 (1971 – plus bonus tracks) (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1971. Used ... $11.99
A rare British recording from Gilberto Gil – sung completely in English, and recorded while living in London, in political exile along with Caetano Veloso! The album's somewhat similar to Veloso's famous London album from 1971 – certainly in structure, as the backings are relatively ... read more CD

Gilberto GilLouvacao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used ... $12.99
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... read more CD

Nara LeaoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1989. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
Nice album recorded in 1989 under the supervision of bossa master Roberto Menescal. Menescal did all the arrangements, and he plays guitar behind Nara's lovely vocals. The record was recorded in Japan, with excellent fidelity, and a spare instrumentation in the classic bossa style. Nara reprises ... read more CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Nara LeaoOpiniao De Nara (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from the incredible Nara Leao – a record that's lightly driven by the bossa, but with some sadder and darker touches that really set the sound apart! Backings on most tracks are simply spare percussion, and an acoustic guitar follows Nara's vocals as they dart in and out of ... read more CD

✨✧ Edu LoboTempo Presente ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound ... read more CD

Philips (Japan), 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 of the earliest albums ever from bossa genius Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! The first album, Bossa Nova, definitely lives up to its title – as it features Lyra's wonderful original compositions wrapped around a set of orchestrations that are lightly breezy, and which dance ... read more CD

Carlos LyraE No Entanto E Preciso Cantar ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1971. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
A wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit more subdued than before – still with bossa at the roots, but also production and instrumentation that nod ... read more CD

Carlos LyraEu E Elas ... CD
Philips (Brazil), New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
A wonderful 70s album from Carlos Lyria – never too full or overdone, with arrangements that still shadow a bit of older bossa orchestrations, but which are a bit more laidback and intimate overall. The sound is incredible, and Lyra's vocals are recorded in that flanged-out way that was used ... read more CD

✨✧ Os GatosOs Gatos ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An album of incomparable beauty – one of the two rare albums cut by this legendary group during the 60s, and a bossa nova masterpiece all the way through! The work is guided by a young Deodato – who's moving here into much more complicated territory than his early organ jazz records ... read more CD

Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos JobimElis & Tom ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
An incredible album – and a landmark session that showed that the bossa nova was still alive and well in the 1970s! The album pairs the breathy jazz vocals of Elis Regina with the booze-soaked warmth of Antonio Carlos Jobim – in a set of spare arrangements that feature a lot of touches ... 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

Caetano VelosoUns ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1983. New Copy ... On May 25, 2018
An extremely poetic little set from Caetano Veloso – very personal, and with some nice play with language on some of the album's best tracks – almost recalling his best intimate moments of the 70s! A few tracks are a bit more upbeat – with keyboards and a bit more electricity ... read more CD

Caetano Veloso/Gal Costa/Gilberto GilTemporada De Verao – Ao Vivo Na Bahia ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
Great live material from 1974, recorded in Bahia, and featuring Caetano, Gal, and Gilberto Gil – each performing tracks on their own! The quality's better than a lot of other Brazilian live albums from the early 70s, and the album's a strong one in Caetano's early 70s catalog – showing ... read more CD
