Ensaio Geral – 10 CD Box Set

CD (Item 104773) Polygram (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/1999 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Amazing! Gilberto Gil's best work has always been ignored by reissue programs for years – but now, this amazing 10 CD box set brings back all of his best recordings from the years 1967 to 1977, including a huge amount of stuff that's never been on CD before! The set's made up of 10 CDs, loosely based around specific Gil albums, and they've all got additional bonus cuts (and one CD is even a double set – and there's another bonus CD single!) There's 6 past albums by Gil – plus 4 more full albums that were never released – and a lot of other material recorded during the same time. Unlike other sets of this type, each CD is jam-packed with great stuff – including long-out of print albums, and rare B-sides and demo versions! Some CDs are also double CDs (making the set a 12 CD set actually), the book contains a bonus CD, the music is amazing, and the box must be seen to be believed – as it also comes with a totally cool hardcover book that's filled with great photos, and great overall packaging in the whole set. We know it's quite expensive, but if you've ever liked Gilberto Gil's work, this set is a must. And if you don't know his stuff – you can't get anything better than this! A treasure!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

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 ... CD

A wonderful lost treasure that's finally seeing the light of day! This legendary double album of songs was recorded by Gilberto Gil between 1973 and 1974 – but it was never issued at the time, having a fate that was almost similar to the Beach Boys' legendary Smile sessions! The record ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. Used
An incredible bit of soundtrack work by Gilberto Gil – and one of his best albums! The record was originally recorded to accompany the work of director Rogerio Szanzerla, and it's a wonderful mix of samba, jazz, and post-Tropicalia psychedelia – all recorded in a warm intimate style ... CD
Warner/WEA (Brazil), 1978. Used
Gilberto Gil live at Montreux – playing in this spare, stripped-down style that's quite a change from some of his more fully produced albums of the period – a mode that's very much like some of Gilberto's best albums from the start of the 70s! There's a lot of acoustic guitar in the ... CD
