Essas Parcerias

CD (Item 121714) Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 1984 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...


A great session that shows the increasing talents of Francis Hime – both as an arranger and songwriter with a huge influence on the larger sound of MPB at the time! Hime's working here in a mode that's expanded from his work in the 70s – a style that's ambitious, yet also quite personal at times – and which is made even more compelling by guest work from Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Simone, and a range of great instrumentalists who assure that Hime's musical vision is carried out to best effect. Titles include "Promessas Promessas", "O Sinal", "Mariana", "Parceiros", "Um Dueto", "Flor De Laranjeira", and "Lacos De Serpentina".  © 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.
