Golden Boys (1965)

LP (Item 144928) Odeon (Brazil), 1965 — Condition: Very Good
Originally: 24.99
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! The album features remade versions of a number of familiar hits from the 60s – sitting nicely next to more unique numbers that echo the twangy guitars and pop harmonies of the hits, yet provide a fresh sense of distance. There's a few great numbers on the album that soar out with the more baroquely breezy arrangements of the Blue Brazil generation – drawing on samba and bossa modes to flesh out a new kind of groove. Titles include "Nao Vivo Sem Voce", "Dancando O Surfin", "E Na Onda Blanco", "Arrependimento", "Erva Venenosa", and "Joao Ninguem". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Se Eu Tivesse Alguem" and "Para Sempre Te Adorar".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Nice and clean – and in the original plastic sleeve.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Walter Wanderley

Samba No Esquema
EMI/Odeon (Uruguay), 1963. Very Good
Fab work from one of our favorite organ players of all time – the mighty Walter Wanderley, king of the bossa keyboard, sounding totally great in this early session from 1963! The album predates Wanderley's famous work for Verve – and has a sound that's slightly expanded from that era, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Geraldo Vandre

Canto Geral
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good
We love this album! This is the best record ever by Geraldo Vandre – one of the most important voices in MPB in the pre-Tropicalia years, working here in a sublime mix of styles that foreshadows some of the best Brazilian styles of the 70s. Vandre's songs are incredibly dark – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Very Good+
A pretty cool record from singer Taiguara – an artist who normally worked in more romantic pop formats in Brazil, but who here has caught a bit of the groovy sound that was showing up on some of the excellent Odeon albums at the time. Part of this is thanks to Gaya, who handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mid 70s and mellow work from two legendary Brazilian vocalists – the great Dick Farney and the lovely Claudette Soares, singing here in a set of duets that include a number of classic Brazilian tunes set to lush arrangements. The sound is very classic – kind of a 70s take on an older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

O Sucesso E Samba
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
Great stuff from Walter Wanderley – and a refreshing change from his work on Verve! The record's dated 1968, but we're kind of guessing that the tracks date from earlier years – although we're not sure. Most of the material's as sophisticated as anything Walter was cutting in the US ... LP, Vinyl record album
