This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
One of the last albums recorded by Elis Regina before her untimely early death – a decidedly more modern effort than some of her previous work, done with a fair bit of 80s keyboards and rhythms – but still enough gentle space to let Elis' magnificent vocals dominate the record!

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.

A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums!

Gal's in the prime of her sexy diva style here – singing in a sweet warm style with smooth jazzy arrangements that bring out a whole new side of her career.

A great album by MPB-4, and one that shows them absorbing a lot of psychedelic influences, and applying them to the arrangements of their unique baroque vocal style.

An interesting side project from Luiz Eca – an artist who most folks know as the pianist for the Tamba Trio! The vibe here is very different – a real mix of modes that even includesa a few slightly-avant tracks that really demonstrate Eca's keyboard skills at a level that we don't ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strange mixture of styles for this enigmatic Brazilian keyboardist – and a record that has a bit of rock, a bit of classical, and an approach that you certainly wouldn't find from an American artist recording at the same time! Like a lot of Tiso's later work, this one has some moments that ... LP, Vinyl record album
