Urubu

LP (Item 30513) Warner, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

Brilliant 70s material by Antonio Carlos Jobim – one of his key sets from the middle part of the decade that had the composer really deepening his approach to both singing and songwriting – moving past some of the more instrumental modes that he was using at the start of the decade! There's a richness to the songs that goes way past simple bossa styles – and the lyrical brilliance shows that Jobim hardly ever needed a poet or co-writer to help him hit the heights – as he really wins us over with his words as much as his music. Claus Ogerman produced, and gives things the right balance between fullness and space in the charts – which allows both a great focus on Antonio's vocal style – expressive, but very down to earth – and a few nice solos on Fender Rhodes too! Titles include "Saudade Do Brasil", "Correnteza", "Boto", "Ligia", "Valse", "Arquitetura De Morar", and "O Homem".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s Mexican pressing.)

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.

Sweetly soulful work from Gilberto Gil – an album that almost has him in the same sort of R&B-inspired territory as Marcos Valle's early 80s albums!

The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group!

Fool On The Hill
A&M, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached!

Philips (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good
A rare bit of samba jazz from Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this Hammond-lead combo featuring organist Paulo Roberto!

Okeh (Brazil), 1964. Very Good
A classic album by Maysa – one of Brazil's most evocative vocalists of the 60s, recorded here in a lovely session of bossa tunes that begins with her stunning reading of "O Barquinho"!

Benedicto Lacerda & Pixinguinha
RCA (Brazil), Late 40s. Near Mint-
Classic instrumental choros from 40s Brazil – originally issued as 78rpm singles, but gathered here with better fidelity for a 1966 RCA album.

Sidney Miller

Linguas De Fogo
Som Livre, 1974. Near Mint-
An unusual 70s session from singer/arranger Sidney Miller – an artist we know best from his lofty Elenco work of the 60s, but who's working here in a completely different mode! The style here is personal, almost gentle at times – following in a mode that recalls some of the Milton ... LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked!
