This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A great one by Elis, and a late-60s effort that seems to mix her bossa leanings with a slight nod to some of the Tropicalia changes that were going on around her! There's lots of cool Brazilian pop instrumentation, jazzy bossa grooves, and weirdly-arranged organs and guitars, plus some wild ... LP, Vinyl record album
The group MPB4 pays tribute to some of the greatest Brazilian singers of the 20th Century, from Tom Jobim to Monsueto to Baden Powell to Nelson Cavaquinho. The LP features a number of different "pot pourri" sets dedicated to an individual singer. The group runs through tracks by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
The second volume in this nice tribute series to great Brazilian composers, cut by the swingin' MPB4 vocal group, in their unique harmony style. This volume features the MPB4 paying homage to Ary Barroso, Ivan Lins, Mauricio Tapajos, Pxinguinha, and Haroldo Lobo, among others – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
With selections by Joao Gilberto, Baden Powell, Os Cariocas, Os Gatos, Tamba Trio, Edu Lobo and Maria Bethania, Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sylvia Telles and Lucio Alves, Roberto Menescal, Marcia, and Luiz Eca-Cordas. LP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic set from the Zimbo Trio – one that has them backed by a larger instrumental group – one that's never too brassy or stringy at all – and which really just adds an extra zing to the sound of their bossa piano grooves! The album's got a totally grooving version of Ivan ... LP, Vinyl record album
An incredible record from a key modernist moment in Brazilian music – and a set that features some really stunning early work from Chico Buarque! The set's a live one – a stage performance based upon a text from Joao Cabral De Melo Neto – but it's got plenty of music, and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
