Palhacos & Reis

LP (Item 22880) Philips (Brazil), 1974 — Condition: Very Good+
Originally: 29.99
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, with jazzy overtones, and rich harmony vocals in the best tradition of the group. Ivan Lins did a nice arrangement of the title cut, which is one of his own compositions, and other tracks include a good electric version of Milton Nascimento's "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", Edu Lobo's "Cheganca", and the baroque "Nosso Mal", which features a guest appearance by Quarteto Em Cy.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has lightly bent corners and an unglued bottom seam.)

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.

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.
