Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... Around June 2, 2015
Amazing stuff from Jorge Ben – and the record that pushed him over the top! The album's a masterpiece of funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years! Other great cuts include "Fio Maravilha", ... read more CD

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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 BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Around June 17, 2015
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

Jorge BenNegro E Lindo ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1971. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious ... read more CD

Jorge BenSamba Esquema Novo ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
A stunning batch of early tracks from one of Brazil's greatest artists! The album includes loads of Jorge's choppy bossa-styled tracks, all driven by his tight acoustic guitar playing, and haunted by his deeply soulful voice! The album's a masterpiece that has Jorge breaking out in a hip new ... read more CD

Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1975. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
A nice one from Jorge! The record's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got a groove that's somewhere between "Taj Mahal" and "Africa Brasil". Jorge's guitar work is nice and tight, and his vocals are, as always, extremely captivating. The tracks are short, choppy, ... read more CD

Gal CostaCantar ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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 ... Around June 10, 2015
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. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Eumir DeodatoInutil Paisagem (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... read more CD

Joao DonatoLugar Comum ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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

Neyde Fraga with Walter WanderleyBalancando (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $32.99
A really wonderful set of bossa nova vocals – one that features singer Neyde Fraga working with the keyboard talents of the great Walter Wanderley! Walter later cut a famous record for Verve with Astrud Gilberto – but this sweet little set is a real prequel to that album, and features ... read more CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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 GilGilberto Gil (1971) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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 Gil & Jorge BenGil E Jorge ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
Fantastic! Normally this sort of "big pop star-meets-big pop star" album is nothing to write home about – but this killer double-length set by Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben features both artists at the top of their form, playing in stripped-down styles that sum up their best work of ... read more CD

Luiz HenriqueA Bossa Moderna De Luiz Henrique (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. Used ... $24.99
The title is perfect for the sound of this early set from Luiz Henrique – as the music is definitely the modern bossa promised in the title, and almost even groovier than some of Henrique's later American work for Verve! Luiz sings and plays guitar throughout – and often hits this ... read more CD

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimPersonalidade ... CD
Philips (Brazil), Mid/Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
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
