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.
Jazzy tracks from Brazilian pianist Fats Elpidio – working here with a mix of small combo and larger orchestral backings – somewhat similar to crossover Latin piano albums in the US at the time! Nice cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album
A very cool concept – large orchestral arrangements of compositions by Luiz Gonzaga – with a pretty heavenly take on "Asa Branca" – plus "Paraiba", "Baiao", "Qui Nem Jilo", and "Algodao". LP, Vinyl record album
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that ...

Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time – all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin- ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dark genius from the young Maria Bethania – one of those 70s albums that seems to drop from the sky out of nowhere – bringing with it its own logic and sense of musical construction, but all with a sense of power and majesty that demands to be heard! Arrangements here often get quite ... LP, Vinyl record album
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very easy-oriented material from Bonfa – with a mixture of arrangements by Deodato and Nick Perito. Perito's arrangements are actually the best here, as they have kind of a groovy 60s sound that works better with the material than Deodato's – which tend to be a bit too easy. Titles ...
