LP (Item 26552) CTI, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real! (Cover has clear tape on the spine.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Virgin Land
Salvation, 1974. Very Good
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come!

Warner, 1979. Very Good
One of Airto's most polished records, and an album that we've really grown to love over the years! There's a pretty strong modern soul/R&B component to the album – but at the core, there's still a strong feeling for Brazilian rhythms, and the record's got a wonderfully warm Brazilian ...

Courage
CTI/A&M, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Extremely early work from the great Milton Nascimento – one of his first albums ever, and oddly recorded in America, not Brazil!

Sugarloaf, 1980. Very Good+
A killer album of breezy Brazilian jazz from San Francisco!

Vira Virou
Ariola (Brazil), Early 80s. Near Mint-
Like the Quarteto Em Cy, MPB4 were one of those unique Brazilian talents who began in the 60s, and only kept improving their sound over the years.

Sivcua album from 1980, with a more modern sound than his older Vanguard albums, but still with some nice jazzy moments and his great accordian sound. Lots of the stuff has an uptempo jazzy samba sound to it, and the tracks include "Cabelo de Milho", "Energia", "No Tempo ... LP, Vinyl record album
