LP, Vinyl record album

❔
An incredible live album from Gal Costa – one that's easily as great as any of her studio albums from the time! But unlike the studio albums, the style here is quite spare and intimate – a very personal presentation of Gal's music, recorded in a way that has her starting out nearly solo at the start, then adding in band members as the concert rolls on. The first portion of the performance mostly features acoustic guitar and Gal's vocals – in a style that's a bit like late 60s Nara Leao or Maria Bethania – but the second half gets more electric, often with some trippier Tropicalia touches! Titles include "Falsa Baiana", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Como 2 e 2", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "Mal Secreto", "Assum Preto", "Antonico", "Sua Estupidez", "Fruta Gogoia", and "Perola Negro".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original blue label raised rim pressing with small JF* etch. Cover has light surface & edge wear, with mild corner bumps.)

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.

Gal Costa (1969)
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+
One of the most mindblowing albums ever recorded – anywhere, anytime! This 1969 set stands as one of the greatest records ever cut by Gal Costa – done at the height of the Tropicalia movement, and featuring a sublime mix of styles that really gets the spirit of the movement right. ...

Philips (Brazil), 1970. Very Good+
One of the loveliest albums we've ever heard from Brazilian singer Maysa – largely because of some great arrangements by Luiz Eca and Roberto Menescal, both of whom give the album a gentle glide that offsets the emotive quality of Maysa's vocals nicely. Titles include "Que Eu Canse E ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis (1966)
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Near Mint-
An excellent early album by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Ela
Philips (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint-
Elis Regina never lets us down – as you'll hear on this great record from 1971! The album captures Elis straddling the fence of her styles – one foot in the older jazzy bossa/samba camp, the other in the more sophisticated range of baroque MPB she virtually invented. Her voice is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good+
A great album by this legendary Brazilian vocal group, and one that proves that they were still evolving their style nicely in the 70s. Some of the tracks feature the funky samba style that was showing up in other Brazilian recordings of the time, but the best bits have compilicated arrangements, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina, MPB 4, Jair Rodrigues, & Others

A Bienal Do Samba
Philips (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
A wonderful album of tracks that show how far the samba sound had evolved by the Tropicalia era! The set was put together for a TV show in Sao Paulo – and it features a bunch of great work that you won't find elsewhere! The lovely Marilia Medalha contributes 2 great tracks – "Pres ... LP, Vinyl record album

MPB4/Quarteto Em Cy

Cobra De Vidro
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Near Mint-
A lovely album that mixes the harmony vocals of the male MPB4 quartet and the sweet female combo Quarteto Em Cy. The eight singers work together on most tracks – and the album's got a spare spacey sound that makes it one of their best of the 70s, with little other production to get in the ...

Hermeto Pascoal E Grupo

Festa Dos Deuses
Philips (Brazil), 1992. Near Mint-
A later album by Brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal – but a set that crackles with all the fire and imagination of his classic recordings!

Philips (Brazil), 1960. Near Mint-
Romantic bossa work from the lovely Sylvia Telles – an album that predates her 60s albums for Elenco, and which almost has an equal amount of jazz in the mix as well! Sylvia was one of the few Brazilian singers of her generation who could work equally well in English as well as Portuguese ... LP, Vinyl record album
