No Balanco

LP (Item 10308) RCA (Brazil), 1983 — Condition: Very Good+
Later work from this bossa nova legend – still a master of the drum kit, and able to compress more than one song into a selection on most of the cuts within! The album still has the short, groovy quality of his classics – with a bit more keyboards in for piano – and titles include "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Bolinha De Papel", "Mas Que Nada", and "A Fonte Secou".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Fantastic 70s material by this unique Brazilian combo!
