Gravado Ao Vivo

LP (Item 27510) Copacabana (Brazil), 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

Benito sings kind of a lounge version of samba, with tight jazzy piano lines, and warm backing by a small combo and a vocal group. The best cuts get pretty lively, and the record's got some nice groovers buried in the mix. Titles include "Vou Cantar Vou Sambar", "Meu Enredo", "Tributo A Um Rei Esquecido", "Preludio No 4", "Novo Rio", and "Alem De Tudo".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Shadow Of Your Smile
Verve, 1965. Very Good
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Look Around
A&M, 1967. Very Good
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- ...

Cena Muda
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
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!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

A&M, 1968. Very Good
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group!

Dot/Paramount (Mexico), Mid 60s. Near Mint-
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 ...
