This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... LP, Vinyl record album
The second volume in this nice tribute series to great Brazilian composers, cut by the swingin' MPB4 vocal group, in their unique harmony style. This volume features the MPB4 paying homage to Ary Barroso, Ivan Lins, Mauricio Tapajos, Pxinguinha, and Haroldo Lobo, among others – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
With selections by Joao Gilberto, Baden Powell, Os Cariocas, Os Gatos, Tamba Trio, Edu Lobo and Maria Bethania, Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sylvia Telles and Lucio Alves, Roberto Menescal, Marcia, and Luiz Eca-Cordas. LP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic set from the Zimbo Trio – one that has them backed by a larger instrumental group – one that's never too brassy or stringy at all – and which really just adds an extra zing to the sound of their bossa piano grooves! The album's got a totally grooving version of Ivan ... LP, Vinyl record album
An incredible record from a key modernist moment in Brazilian music – and a set that features some really stunning early work from Chico Buarque! The set's a live one – a stage performance based upon a text from Joao Cabral De Melo Neto – but it's got plenty of music, and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic work from 70s Brazil – served up here by the great Lady Zu, who was one of the few female artists in the mostly-male samba soul generation! Lady Zu's a bit like Tim Maia at the time – a soul singer first, and Brazilian artist second – and works here with a sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Features arrangements from Ze Menezes, Perinho Albuquerque, Mierelhes, and others – on titles that include "Traje De Princesa", "Morte De Um Poeta", "Agolona", "Retalhos", "Cajueiro Velho", "E Melhor Dizer Adeus", "Canto Do ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... LP, Vinyl record album
A live album from Milton Nascimento, but a set that's got all the majesty of his studio work of the 70s – thanks to a core group that's really wonderful, and some larger orchestrations that must have taken up a fair bit of space on the stage! Nascimento's got that wonderfully expressive ... LP, Vinyl record album
