Chico Canta (second cover)

CD (Item 131079) Philips (Brazil), 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album from 1972. Arrangements are big and baroque, and the approach to the material opens things up a lot more than usual – especially from Chico's late 60s albums that are more in a "singer with orchestra mode". All tracks feature music by Ruy Guerra, whose style works very well with Lobo's sound – and Chico has a sweet edge in his voice that pushes things even further. Titles include "Prologo", "Barbara", "Ana De Amsterdam", "Fado Tropical", "Fortaleza", "Cobra De Vidro", "Nao Existe Pecado Ao Sul Do Equador/Boi Voador Nao Pode", and "Tatuagem".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 90s Brazilian pressing. Still sealed – shrink is split on the bottom and has two store stickers on the back.)

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.

Philips (Brazil), 1993. Used
Well, it's not the 60s anymore – but this is still a wonderful album that reunites Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the spirit of their Tropicalia years – done in a style that shows that creative invention was still alive in MPB during the 90s! There's echoes here of modes to come by ... CD

Great stuff! In a manner that's similar to (but better than) her live albums with Jair Rodriguez, Elis performs here in a great live show with the nutty Miele.

Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with ... CD

Philips (Japan), 1972. Used
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... CD

Philips (Japan), 1959. Used
The fab first album by Sergio Mendes – very different than his later work! Sergio's more in a straight bossa mode here – playing with a tight little combo that features saxophone and trombone next to his own firey work on piano – tight and jazzy, and even with a few traces of US ... CD
