LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
Elis Regina never lets us down – as you'll hear on this great record from 1971! The album captures Elis straddling the fence of her styles – one foot in the older jazzy bossa/samba camp, the other in the more sophisticated range of baroque MPB she virtually invented. Her voice is wonderful throughout – and the album includes stunning versions of Caetano Veloso's "Cinema Olympia" and "Os Argonautas", Marcos Valle's "Black Is Beautiful", Lennon/McCartney's "Golden Slumbers", Baden Powell's "Fale E Disse", and Ivan Lins' jazzy "Madalena". Great stuff throughout – and another must-have album by this legendary singer!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s issue. Cover has light wear.)

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.

One of the last albums recorded by Elis Regina before her untimely early death – a decidedly more modern effort than some of her previous work, done with a fair bit of 80s keyboards and rhythms – but still enough gentle space to let Elis' magnificent vocals dominate the record!

Elis (1966)
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Near Mint-
An excellent early album by one of Brazil's greatest singers!

Dois Na Bossa - Numero 2
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good+

Gal Costa

Fantasia
Philips (Brazil), 1981. Very Good+
Gal's in the prime of her sexy diva style here – singing in a sweet warm style with smooth jazzy arrangements that bring out a whole new side of her career.

MPB4

Cicatrizes
Philips (Brazil), 1972. 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.

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!

A killer early album of Batucada tracks – filled with lots of tight, short, hard percussive groovers! LP, Vinyl record album
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
