Brazil

LP (Item 373542) 20th Century, 1975 — Condition: Sealed
A standout set of tropical disco tunes – one that takes its groove in 2 different ways! The whole thing was put together by producer Jacques Morali – and part of the album's got a style that nicely updates older Latin themes with a funky 70s disco groove – one that uses larger backings plus funkier rhythms, in a mode that's surprisingly solid, and very much without any of the hoke you'd expect! Philly maestro Ritchie Rome handled the arrangements on the record – which is why it sounds so sweet – and side one features nice remakes of "Peanut Vendor", "Frenesi", and "Brazil" – while side two features more Ritchie-styled vocal originals that include "Let's Pool", "Pinball", "Dance With Me", "Lady Champagne", and "Life Is Fascination".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still sealed, with a cut corner, some wear and aging, small tear at the top.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Salsoul, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, at the time the group's silly costumes and slap-bass funk sound were a bit too much to take – but from the perspective of a few decades later, they actually had a pretty darn nice 80s groove kind of sound, and this first album's not a bad one for the dancefloor.
