Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Equinox (Pickwick) ... LP
A&M, 1968. Sealed ... $7.99
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more interesting array of songs! There's a bit less of the pop/cover style than before, and a bit more of a nod towards the hipper side of Brazilian music – especially the modernists of the bossa nova generation. Brazilian tunes include versions of "Constant Rain", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Bim Bom", and "Wave" – and there's also a few nice English numbers, like their hit version of "Night & Day", and a great reading of "Watch What Happens"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Pickwick reissue. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Fool On The Hill (Japanese pressing) ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached! The warmly glowing Brasil 66 style is still very strongly in place, but the music here is all a bit hipper – tunes that show the growing sophistication of Brazilian music in the post-bossa years – picked up on by Sergio, and reworked for a larger audience in the US! The record's got some incredibly wonderful material – including a sublime cover of "Upa Neguinho", plus versions of "Casa Forte", "Canto Triste", "Lapinha", and "Laia Ladaia", a song that's a perfect fit for the group's unique style! Also includes the dreamy number "When Summer Turns To Snow", and the group's classic cover of "Scarborough Fair"! CD

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Foursider ... LP
A&M, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic double-length collection of work by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – titled a "Foursider" because of the 2LP format! The package is overflowing with greatness by the group – and the extra space allows the set to include some real gems from the later A&M years – a time when the group were hitting the charts a bit less than before, and really deepening their Brazilian groove! These later tracks are all plenty darn great – and show echoes of changes going on in late 60s Brazilian music – not Tropicalia entirely, but some of the groovier moments at EMI/Odeon and Philips, with traces of influences from Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, and Luiz Carlos Vinhas. 21 tracks in all – with titles that include "Ye Me Le", "After Sunrise", "Pais Tropical", "Crystal Illusions", "Mas Que Nada", "Bim Bom", "Look Of Love", "Chelsea Morning", "After Midnight", and their breakbeat version of "For What It's Worth".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 ... LP
A&M, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Crystal Illusions ... LP
A&M, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still sounds pretty darn fresh to our ears today! The album's filled with great versions of Brazilian tunes – and titles include Marcos Valle's "Viola", Edu Lobo's "Crystal Illusions", Milton Nasimento's "Empty Faces", plus "Song Of No Regrets", "Salt Sea", and "Dois Dias". Nice stuff, and very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesBrasil '65 – Introducing The Voice Of Wanda De Sah ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... About June 15, 2018
That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius". CD

✨✧ Sergio MendesGreat Arrival ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Sergio Mendes' most dreamy albums – quite different than both his vocal work with Brasil 66, and his smaller combo sides from Brazil! There's still a strong bossa component to the record – but the setting has Sergio's piano lines laid out over larger arrangements with a good jazz component – soloing beautifully with a grace and charm he sometimes didn't have on other projects! Arrangements are by some hip American talents – Clare Fischer, Bob Florence, and Richard Hazard – and the set's filled with bright horns, lush banks of strings, and cascading rhythms – all produced with exceptional sound, so that Sergio's piano goes gliding over the top in a manner that's similar to some of the Luis Eca albums in a similar format. Tracks include "Carnaval", "Boranda", "Nana", and "Bonita". LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa RioAlegria! ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An incredibly groovy record – and one of two rare sides cut by Bossa Rio – a short-lived vocal group handled by Sergio Mendes! The sound here is kind of an extension of Sergio's work with Brasil 66 – but Bossa Rio have deeper chops vocally, with both male and female singers – and stretch out nicely with a funky samba sound that includes a lot of Lowry organ from Manfredo Fest! Mike Wofford handled the arrangements, and set the group up in a mix of west coast jazz and electric Brazilian rhythms that's totally great – a warm extension of the 60s bossa vocal mode, hipped up slightly for the LA scene! The set includes covers of two great Jorge Ben cuts –"Zazueira" and "Que Pena" – plus great versions of "Girl Talk", "Eleanor Rigby", "Open Your Arms", "Blackbird", and "Spinning Wheel".

GimmicksGimmicks In Acapulco ... LP
Karussell (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- ... $9.99
No doubt about it – these guys are groovy! Groovy like Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – with a sweet male/female harmony vocal style, applied here to a mixture of bossa nova tunes and 60s pop numbers, recorded in Mexico by this Swedish combo, with a sound that would make A&M weep! There's a great selection of tunes on the package that keep things nice and fresh – fresher than Sergio Mendes, even – as the tracks run from a cover of "California Soul", to obvious numbers like "Wave" and "Mas Que Nada", to lesser-known gems like "Good Old Brandy On The Rocks", "Coco Loco Samba", "Honeymoon In Las Brisas", and "Acapulco Sunset".

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99
A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Japanese pressing!)

Al MassrieenModern Egyptian Music ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Modern Egyptian music, circa 1983 – served up here in a collection of recordings that initially only appeared on cassette! The leader of the group is Al Massrieen, but the music is a very collaborative affair – keyboards, upbeat rhythms, and vocals from many group members – in a style that seems to merge older Egyptian traditions with influences from late 70s funk and club – all in a way that comes across a lot better than you might expect! A few tracks are more pop-oriented, but even those use really cool percussion at points – and all the songs here have these little twists and turns that really keep things interesting. When the female singers come forth, there's almost a groove that sounds like an Egyptian take on Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77 (not 66) – and their clubby tracks at the end of the 70s. Titles include "Ebda Men Gedid", "Asef Gedan", "Mafatshi Leh", "Horreya", "West El Ghabat", and "Men Awel Deqiqa". CD

Pen Friend ClubWonderful World Of The Pen Friend Club (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Penpal (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $24.99
A sing-songy Japanese group with a sound that's every bit what you'd expect from the 60s style of the cover – a group who've clearly been inspired by groups like We Five, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and other perfect purveyors of the best sort of sunny sounds – so much so that the group even goes out of their way to deliver both mono and stereo mixes of the full album! Vocals are all sung by Yuka Fujimoto, both in English and Japanese – and both the instrumentation and production evoke a cool late 60s, west coast, Capitol Records sort of vibe – on titles that include "Wonderful World Of The Pen Friend Club", "Sherry She Needs Me", "Born To Be Together", "River Deep Mountain High", and "Loves Lines Angles & Rhymes".

✨✧ Lani HallSundown Lady ... LP
A&M, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The beautiful first solo album by Lani Hall – recorded after years of work with Sergio Mendes in the Brasil 66 group – and done in a style that certainly reflects her great vocals with that ensemble, yet which also expands her sound tremendously! The set was arranged and produced by Herb Alpert in a spare, almost folksy style that still has some sweet LA touches – and the album's worth it alone for the leadoff cut – a version of Lesley Duncan's "Love Song", done in a gently grooving mode that's got a real folk-funk feel! The set's also got a great version of "We Could Be Flying" – and other tracks include "Ocean Song", "Vincent", "Come Down In Time", and "You". LP, Vinyl record album

An overlooked bit of A&M magic – the only album ever from Punch, a groovy male/female vocal group – with harmonies somewhere in between Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and The Carpenters! Bones Howe arranged and produced – and the whole album's got a sunny, sing-song groove that's totally great – a hippie aesthetic firmly snuggled down into mainstream pop – on cuts that include "Piece Of My Mind", "Mayflower", "Travelin Boy", "Open Highway", and "Love Song".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Love Music ... CD
Bell/Sony (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly With His Song", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

Made In Brasil with Victor MNumero Um ... LP
Nucleus, 1975. Sealed ... $26.99
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals – kind of in a Sergio Mendes 70s style, or in the mode of some of Marcos Valle's more electric work – and although the tunes are mostly familiar numbers like "Reza", "Agua De Beber", "Zazueira", "Upa Neguinho", and "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", they're done in a mode that's very fresh – kind of a bridge between 60s Brazilian interpretations, and later ones by recent groups! LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing!)
