Milton Banana (1974)

LP (Item 10976) Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-
A great Milton Banana LP from the mid 70s – filled with lots of short, tight bossa tracks, and lots of nice electric piano solos with a good 70's groove! Milton's tight and punchy on the drums, as usual, and the sound is a nice mix of bossa, samba, and a bit of funky jazz. Titles include "Teimosa", "Porte De Rainha", "Testamento De Bamba", "Olha O Que Ele Fez", and "So Que Deram Zero Pro Bedeu".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Vento De Maio
EMI (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint-
A pretty sweet album by Elis – and one of the last she ever did!

Cesar Mariano is still on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Farney (1978)
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good
They don't call Dick Farney the Sinatra of Brazil for nothing – and as you'll hear in this set, his vocals are wonderful – weather singing in Portuguese or English! The arrangements are great, very timeless – and handled by Julio Cesar Figueiredo, perfect for Dick's voice! LP, Vinyl record album

Early work from The Golden Boys – recorded at a time when the vocal quartet were heavily drawing from American musical influences, and recasting them here for the Brazilian record-buying public!

Elis, Essa Mulher
Warner (Brazil), 1979. Very Good+
Really great late work from Elis Regina – recorded in the company of arranger Cesar Mariano, whose masterful touch made for some of Elis' best albums of the 70s!
