Bonfa & Brazil

LP (Item 10964) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 16.99
Very groovy Brazilian work – in a similar vein to Eydie's Blame It On the Bossa Nova LP! Stevie & Eydie recorded this set with bossa guitarist Luiz Bonfa, and Deodato did the arrangements – and they both really bring in a beautiful sound to the set that's quite unlike other Gorme/Lawrence albums from the time. The bossa is twisted beautifully through the twisted relations of Steve & Eydie, and the track list features a number of English versions of tracks that you'd probably recognize better in the Portugese versions. Cuts include "Empty Glass", "Sweet Talk", "Dream My Dream", and "Summer, Summer Wind".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, aging, and a small split in the bottom seam.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.
