✨✧ Jorge BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastically soulful album from Jorge Ben – one of his greatest records ever, and a key part of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album marks an earthier shift for Jorge – a sound that's still rooted in the samba influences of the 60s, but which also takes on a bit more soul at the ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueSinal Fechado ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $16.99
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho ... read more CD

✨✧ Gal CostaGal (1969) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Gal CostaIndia ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
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

✨✧ Lindolpho Gaya & Rogerio DupratOs Maestros Premiados ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Gilberto Gil & Jorge BenGil E Jorge ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimPersonalidade ... CD
Philips (Brazil), Mid/Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by Jobim – spanning the mid 60s late bossa years, into the early 70s baroque ones, when his mad compositional genius was really opening up! The set's a great way to get some of these cuts on vinyl – as they're not actually as easy to track down as we'd like. Roberto ... read more CD

Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and ... read more CD

Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... On June 29, 2016
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 ... On June 29, 2016
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

Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... On June 29, 2016
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

Christiane LegrandOf Smiles And Tears ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Brazilian rhythms meet French pop – all in an incredible album from the lovely Christiane Legrand! Christiane's probably best known for her work in the Swingle Singers – or for being the sister of the famous Michel Legrand, who she helped on a few soundtracks – but she sounds ...

Philips (Japan), 1980/1998. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
