Meus Sonhos Dourados

CD (Item 116162) Philips (Japan), 1987 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A great one from Nara Leao's "back to bossa" years in the late 80s – a set that has the lovely vocalist working through older American standards – but done here with new lyrics in Portuguese and some great bossa backings from Roberto Menescal! Menescal's airy style proved to be a perfect fit for Nara at this point, and the record's made even better by some guest work from Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica – blowing those blue-tinged notes that always helps to underscore the music with an extra hint of sadness. Titles include "Jamais (The Boy Next Door)", "Coisa Que Lembram Voce (These Foolish Things)", "Como Vai Voce? (What's New?)", and "Garoto Levado (Lullaby Of Birdland)".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Unusual early Japanese pressing with alternate cover art – includes obi!)

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 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.

Gilberto Gil

Louvacao
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD

Soaring strings and bossa piano – a tremendous combination in the hands of Luiz Eca – working here at a time when the arranger was first making his name with the Tamba Trio! The set's one of Eca's gems from the 60s under his own name – and it's got a style that echoes the mix of ... CD

Chico e Maria Ao Vivo
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Used
A fantastic illustration of the live music tradition on Brazil – one that really arose on records during the 60s, and blossomed strongly on 70s records like this – which feel almost more like an event than a recorded document! The concert features a magnificent meeting of Chico Buarque ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from ... CD

Elis Regina

Transversal Do Tempo
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Used
Classic live set from 1978, featuring Elis at the height of her interpretive powers, performing with backing by Cesar Mariano and his fusiony CIA group.

Gal Costa

Cantar
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used
A real moment of beauty from Gal Costa in the 70s – a set that moves away from her more experimental music of the Tropicalia generation, and yields a more personal approach overall – one that's quite similar to the best from Caetano Veloso at the time! As with Caetano during this shift ... CD

Tempo/Avanco
Philips (Japan), Mid 60s. Used
2 of the best-ever albums by the Tamba Trio – out now on one CD! The records are a fantastic mix of vocal harmonies and bossa piano grooves, with a sound that's unlike anything else you've ever heard – unless you've heard some of the Tamba Trio's other excellent records! Luiz Eca ... CD
