As Duas Faces De Juca Chaves

LP (Item 34955) RGE (Brazil), Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

The two faces of Juca Chaves – one a witty samba singer, the other a straighter vocalist – served up here in a strong split album from the 60s! Side one features "satiras" – tunes that often have Juca's vocals cutting sharply alongside percussion, guitar, and some nice light woodwinds – with a lively sound throughout. Side two features "modinhas" – mellower, darker songs that often mix some melancholy strings with guitar, conducted by Simonetti. Titles include "Presidente Bossa Nova", "To Duro", "Nos, Os Gatos", "Nasal Sensual", "Menina", "Musa Infiel", and "O Tempo Passa".  © 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.
