This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

An unusual compilation of Brazilian and American tunes – done as a promo disco for radio! Titles include "All Together Now" by The Beatles, "Trains & Boats & Planes" by The Box Tops, "Cancao Da Volta" by Doris Monteiro, and "Adoro" by Altemar ... LP, Vinyl record album
A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums! Even at this young age, her ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very nicely packaged 2LP set that brings together some of Gal Costa's best work for Philips! The set spans her Tropicalia years, and moves into the 70s as Gal developed a style that was more sophisticated, and which eventually drew her more into the mainstream. Titles include "London ...

A great little live set from Maria Bethania – one recorded with the lighter, looser sound she was using in the early 80s – and which stands as a nice contrast to her more dramatic concert performances of the 70s! The music director for the show is Gilberto Gil, and there's a bit of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful album from the early 70s – and one that shows Elis Regina really transforming her jazzy bossa style into something far more complicated and baroque! She's working here with her best arranger, Cesar Camargo Mariano, and the tracks feature small-group performances that include ... LP, Vinyl record album
A cool 60s live set from Jair Rodrigues – one that captures his vocals with a raspy, earthy edge that's really great – mixed up here both in upbeat jazzy samba backings, and some folksier moments too! The album has all the great energy that Jair brought to his famous live dates with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maria Bethania's warmed her sound up a fair bit here from earlier releases – and is hitting the same blend of jazz overtones and larger arrangements used during the same period by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – both of whom were maturing at a similar pace! There's still a fair bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic bossa mixed with more ambitious touches for the 70s – easily one of the greatest records ever to come from the team of Vinicius and Toquinho! The record has vocals by both, often layered on top of each other with a wonderfully spacious feel that spreads out beautifully between the ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last records that Elis recorded for Polygram, and a great batch of tracks that has a lot more of a jazzy feel than some of her other albums from the time! The backing is by a small little combo with some great electric piano, and there's lots of nice percussive moments to keep things ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very groovy! This is one of a few excellent albums made by the team of Jaime Alem and Nair during the 70s – and although the set's a tribute to the compositions of Dorival Caymmi, Jaime & Nair take the tunes and make them their own through some excellent jazzy backings. The arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent work by some of the greatest Brazilian singers and songwriters of the 70s! The material was recorded exclusively for this TV soundtrack in 1976 – and although the scope of the story stretches back to the early 20th century, the feel of most of the material is prime mid 70s MPB. ...
