An amazing little record from the Uruguay scene of the 70s – not as much as a hotbed of activity as some other South American nations, but still home to a few key geniuses – like the brilliant Eduardo Mateo! Mateo works here alongside musical partner Jorge Trasante – who mixes a lot of earthy percussion with Eduardo's dark vocals and guitar lines – in a style that's far from folksy, and has more of the complicated appeal of some of the organic work from Brazil during the post-Tropicalia years! And like some of the more heavenly Brazilian music of the period, there's a really transcendent feel to the whole thing – a vocal power that goes beyond the boundaries of language, and instrumentation that's simple and subtle, but in ways that are light years away from anything going on in the US or UK. Other players add in some key extra elements – a bit of electric bass here, some funky flute there – to inflect the tunes with some hipper, jazzy elements that are really wonderful. Titles include "Dulce Brillo", "Canto A Los Soles", "Palomas", "El Blues Para Mama", "Voz De Diamantes", and "Cancion Para El Tamborero". © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
