Emotiva

LP (Item 15033) EMI (Brazil), 1980 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

Mellow electric jazz and laidback fusion from Brazilian guitarist Helio Delmiro – working here in the tight mode of some of the best recordings of the 80s fusion generation from Brazil! Some of the cuts are fairly straight jazz – like the record's laidback takes on "Epistrophy" and "Body And Soul" – but there's others tunes by Brazilian writers, like Victor Assis Brasil's "Pro Zeca", and Milton Nascimento's "Tarde", which take off in a sweetly soulful groove that makes the album well worth seeking out. Titles include "Esperando", "Waltzin", and "Emotiva No 1".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and light aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • 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.

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.
