Os Grandes Sucessos Do Paramount

LP (Item 18646) RGE (Brazil), Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
An excellent set of rare bossa tracks, all performed by artists related to the legendary scene that circled around the Paramount Theatre, one of Brazil's leading showcases for bossa material in the 60's! Includes versions of "Garota De Charme" and "Balanco Zona Sul" by Zimbo Trio, "Morrer De Amor" and "Onde Esta Voce" by Alaide Costa, "Dorme" and "Desencanto" by Yvette, "Diz" by Walter Santos, "Azul Triste" by the Oscar Castro Neves Noneto, and the groovy "Zero Hora" by Bossa Jazz Trio.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s pressing. Cover has some edge & ring wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Brazilian instrumentals from the 60s – and a cool jet cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
RGE (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
Amazing work from a young Chico Buarque – a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Helena De Lima

O Ceu Quem Vem De Voce
RGE (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good
A Brazilian singer with a hell of a voice – the lovely Helena De Lima, whose vocal range really fits the lush moods of the tunes on the set! Things are in a more melancholy look than you'd guess from Helena's look on the cover – a nice sort of blueness that's never too overdone, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Helena De Lima

Uma Noite No Cangaceiro
RGE (Brazil), 1965. Very Good
A live and lively little bossa vocal set – recorded at the Cangaceiro nightclub, with backing by a really great small combo! The style here is similar to other live bossa jazz sets from the time – such as Elis Regina's classic with the Zimbo Trio – and although Helena's vocal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque De Hollanda

Chico Buarque De Hollanda Na Italia
RGE (Brazil), Late 60s. Near Mint-
An early record that really links Chico Buarque to the European scene – an audience that would keep Chico's music strong for many years, and with a reach that went far beyond some of his contemporaries! The set was recorded in Italy, but with all the charm and sparkle of his classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1966. Very Good+
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77

Love Music
Bell, 1973. Very Good+
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1965. Near Mint-
The wonderful world of Antonio Carlos Jobim gets a whole lot bigger on this American release from the 60s – thanks to a collaboration with the great Nelson Riddle, the arranger whose work made so many of Frank Sinatra's albums so great! Riddle really understands the jazzy elements at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bola Sete

Goin' To Rio
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
An excellent album by Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete, and one that has him leading an orchestra through a set of tracks he composed and produced himself. The orchestra gives a beautifully full sound to the record, and is a nice counterpoint to other Sete albums from the time, which could sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis (1972)
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barclay (Brazil), 1985. Near Mint-
The title says it all – as this excellent Brazilian vocal quartet runs through the work of the great Chico Buarque. Chico's compositions are always known for their warm imagination, and the tricks and turns in the songs works perfectly with the group's off-kilter style. Titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1977. Very Good- Gatefold
A beautiful tribute to Caetano – featuring a 10" LP with some of his best songs, plus a super-cool booklet that's filled with loads of excellent photos from the late 60s and early 70s. Titles include "London London" by Gal Costa, "Esse Cara" by Maria Bethania, "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
