Cicatrizes

LP (Item 24068) Philips (Brazil), 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
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. The record has an amazing spacey feel in its best parts – with an approach that certainly owes something to the contemporary work of Edu Lobo, and other Brazilian composers who were pushing the boundaries of pop music. Plus, the whole thing's housed in a great cover, with a fragmented image of the band. Titles include "Faz Tempo", "Ultima Forma", "Cancao De Nana", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde, Boa Noite", "Partido Alto", and "Viva Zapatria".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing – in a heavy gatefold cover!)

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.

Vinicius/Toquinho
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the more lively, and more beautiful Vinicius albums from the 70s!

The production is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nara Leao recorded some incredible albums at the end of the 60s in Brazil – and she returned to greatness in the 80s with records like this – done with a different sound that really marked a strong second chapter in the singer's career!

Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
An interesting side project from Luiz Eca – an artist who most folks know as the pianist for the Tamba Trio!

Philips (Brazil), 1988. Very Good+
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
