Historia Da Musica Popular Brasileira (12 inch LP & booklet)

LP (Item 35775) Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1970s — Condition: Near Mint-

Great work from two of Brazil's greatest modernists! Although the cover makes it look like they're playing together on the album, the record features a side apiece of work by each composer/musician. Gismonti's side features a version of "O Sonho" sung by Elis Regina, a duet with Nana Vasconcelos on "Danca Das Cabecas", and Odeon recordings of "Baiao Malandro", "Ano Zero", and "Plahaco". The tracks on the Pascoal side are from his Warner Brothers and Philips recordings – and titles include "Plin", "Mestre Mara", "Chorino Para Ele", and "Bebe".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Comes with a great booklet that has lots of cool photos, too!)

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.

Groovy bossa gems from Tamba 4 – released in 1970 on Mexico's Orfeon label!

Rare bossa from the Mexican scene of the 60s – played by a very hip quintet with Breno Sauer on vibes and Claudio Roditi on trumpet and vocals!
