No Embalo Do Samba

LP (Item 38581) Imperial (Brazil), 1966 — Condition: Very Good-

Wonderful bossa and samba grooves – with a hip edge that reminds us a lot of Ed Lincoln's best records from the time – no surprise, since Falcao is actually Brazilian organist Walter Wanderley, working under another name! Wanderley, as Falcao, plays Hammond organ with a sparkly finish – grooving lightly over tight samba rhtyhms, with some jangly piano thrown into counterbalance his work on the keys. The set grooves like a non-stop 60s party – with some occasional vocals, lots of weird-sounding percussion, and a real focus on tight snappy songs with a beat. Titles include "The Blues Walk", "Tamanco No Samba", "Giramundo", "Upa Neguinho", "Liberdade Demais", and "Sao Salvador".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mexican pressing on heavy vinyl. Label has a sticker at the spindle hole. Cover has a half split bottom seam that's been "repaired" at the end.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
