Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the ... read more CD

Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $29.99
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

Also available Tabua De Esmeralda (180 gram vinyl) ... LP 32.99

Maria BethaniaMel ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Used ... $9.99
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

Luiz Bonfa & Maria ToledoBraziliana ... CD
Philips/Verve, 1965. Used ... $6.99
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

Chico BuarqueChico Canta ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $14.99
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album ... read more CD

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily 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. Used ... $9.99
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 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. Used ... $16.99
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

✨✧ Gal CostaIndia ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Lindolpho Gaya & Rogerio DupratOs Maestros Premiados ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... 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

Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
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 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

Carlos LyraBossa Nova/Carlos Lyra (1960) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1960. Used ... $22.99
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

Elis ReginaElis (1966) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Used ... $14.99
An excellent early album by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The ... read more CD

Elis ReginaElis (1972) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $11.99
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... read more CD
