Open Your Eyes You Can Fly

LP (Item 36082) Milestone, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

A classic batch of Bay Area Brazilian grooves – recorded in the sweet breezy electric style of the Fantasy studios, and featuring the vocals of the lovely Flora Purim in the lead! The session's got a great mix of Brazilian and American fusion players – including Airto (of course!), Ron Carter, George Duke, Egberto Gismonti, Alphonso Johnson, Robertinho Silva, Hermeto Pascoal, and Ndugu Leon Chancler. Pascoal's reed work is a very nice treat, especially over the warm keyboards of George Duke. Purim's voice is as wonderful as ever, and the album's got lots of nice numbers, like "Ina's Song", "Andei (I Walked)", "Time's Lie", and "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Flora Purim's 70s classics – an album recorded with that soaring breezy vocal style that she virtually invented – heard here before it got too old, and too copied by other singers! The set's a live one, filled with lots of energy – and recorded before a very enthusiastic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77

Vintage 74
Bell, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work!

Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
A lot smoother than most of Airto's other work – and almost more of a soul record than a jazz one – but also a great batch of grooves with a really spirited feel! Airto's percussion is still relatively up front in the mix, and smooth funky LA arrangements take the album to a warm ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Maria Bethania

Maria Bethania (1969)
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1969. Very Good

Edu Lobo & Tom Jobim

Edu & Tom
Philips (Brazil), 1981. Near Mint-
An incredible later meeting by two of the most sophisticated musical talents of the bossa generation – and a record that's done in the same intimate, spare setting as Jobim's meeting with Elis Regina a few years before! Production is by bossa legend Aloysio De Oliveira – and the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martinho Da Vila

Martinho Da Vila (1969)
RCA (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint-
Classic modern samba material by one of Brazil's greatest exponents of the genre!

Marlena Shaw

Out Of Different Bags
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint-
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack!
