Gilberto & Jobim

LP (Item 23028) Capitol, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty heavily into the Brazilian Odeon catalog of tunes to cash in on the American popularity of bossa nova. This album was one of their bigger imports, and it features material originally recorded in Brazil, with Gilberto up front, backed by arrangements by Jobim. This is the classic material that made Gilberto's fame in the early days – and titles include "Doralice", "O Pato", "Discussao", "Outra Vez", and "Corcovado".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

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.

Alegria!
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
An incredibly groovy record – and one of two rare sides cut by Bossa Rio – a short-lived vocal group handled by Sergio Mendes!

Maria Bethania

Recital Na Boite Barroco
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Near Mint-
One of Maria Bethania's first albums, and a beautiful set of live recordings – with a vibe that's a lot more uptempo and swinging than some of her later work!

Work Of Love

Hot on the heels of the very successful Batucada compilations on Mr. Bongo, Soul Jazz release this excellent double-length set of rare Brazilian percussion tracks dating from 1969 to 1978.

20/20/20, 2013. Near Mint- Gatefold
Really wonderful work from Alexandre Kassin – easily one of the most important contemporary figures in Brazilian music of the past decade or two!

Bola Sete

Goin' To Rio
Columbia, 1973. Very Good
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.

Inside Is Love
Fabulous/TK, 1979. Very Good+
A great moment in the career of the mighty Leon Ware – a set recorded after his famous 70s work for Motown, and before his return to fame at Elektra – but still with a super-tight quality that shows that Leon was always great, no matter what the setting! Leon's warm, mellow, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
