LP, Vinyl record album

5.00 2

Nice mellow sampler of tracks from Jobim's lovely years at A&M! The albums were recorded as part of A&M's early relationship with CTI – and they feature a great set of arrangements that has Jobim on guitar or piano, backed by some beautifully full warm jazzy orchestrations. These tracks aren't that easy to find on vinyl these days – and titles include "Tema Jazz", "Mojave", "Lamento", "Wave", and "Rockanalia". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Tower, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Nice early stuff from Sergio – also issued as the album Brazil 65 on Capitol! That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1977. Near Mint-
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through ... LP, Vinyl record album

RGE (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
A sweet 70s set from the amazing Zimbo Trio – a record that really has them stretching out with a much more complicated vibe than the bossa years – mixing in some elements of 70s Brazilian fusion, as they work with an expanded group that includes Hector Costita on sax, and Heraldo Do ...
