Gilberto GilAo Vivo Em Toquio ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $14.99
A real standout from Gilberto Gil in the 80s – a live record from Tokyo, and one that's recorded with a spontaneous sound that's a nice change from some of his studio work! The group's got a nice horn section, who underscore things in a way that makes the whole thing feel a bit more soulful ... read more CD

Gilberto GilBanda Larga Cordel ... CD
Warner, 2008. Used ... $2.99
Gilberto Gil continues his exploration of Caribbean-styled rhythms here – working in a sunny space that's a bit different from his earlier work, especially some of his more electric or intimate sets of a decade ago. The style here is one that suits Gil's aging vocals well – as his ... read more CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used ... $18.99
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 GilLouvacao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used ... $6.99
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!

Gilberto GilO Eterno Deus Mu Danca ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil gets off to a nicely soulful start here – by bringing in a guest appearance from Ed Motta on the album's title track – then keeping things in a nice mix of samba and soul throughout the entire album! There's a few slight touches of 80s production, but overall there's a lot ... read more CD

Gilberto GilQuanta ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1997. New Copy ... $14.99
An ambitious double-length set from Gilberto Gil – and a record that's almost a return to some of the sounds of his roots!

Gilberto GilRaca Humana ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil gets a nice lean groove for the 80s – a mode that's a bit like the style Caetano Veloso was taking at the time – with maybe more of a unified band feel behind the singer, instead of a more ambitious set of charts! The approach really brings a focus on Gilberto's vocals, ... read more CD

Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A warmly intimate album from Joao Gilberto – one that has the singer and guitarist in the same special space as his wonderful albums from the early 70s - a bit more sophisticated than the bossa years, but equally personal throughout! The set was co-produced by Helen Keane – who was ... read more CD

WEA (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – and a set that's also one of the most intimate recordings that the great Joao Gilberto made during the 90s!

Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99

Glue TripGlue Trip (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Production Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
A very cool Brazilian duo – working here with a sound that's nicely tripped-out, but which also has acoustic elements that take us back to Brazilian styles of the 70s too! Acoustic guitar figures strongly on many tracks – right up front in the mix, as on a Jorge Ben record – but ... read more CD
