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.
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight 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.
An incredible record – from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty darn groovy album of tracks – issued here with a title that says "FM Stereo Programacao Especial", which we think means that it was a promo-only album for radio. The cuts are very nice breezy bossa-inflected instrumental tracks on the record, with kind of a nice 70's FM ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mid-60s collection of some of the big songs that were rocking the Brazilian festivals of the time – early work by Gilberto Gil, Elis Regina, Claudette Soares, Geraldo Vandre, Jair Rodrigues, Nara Leao, and others! LP, Vinyl record album
A very obscure entry in the Brazilian 60s mode of mixing organ jazz with percussion –recorded by the equally obscure Steve Bernard, who we're guessing might be another player working under a session name! LP, Vinyl record album
Dreamy instrumentals from one of the hipper arrangers working in 60s Brazil – tracks that include "O Barquino", "Fita Amarela", "A Coraco Do Rei", "Supersonic Samba", "Mulata Assanhada", "Bahia Com H", and "Saudades Da ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very spare stuff by Baden, recorded in a warm intimate setting, with just guitar and voice carrying the entire record. The tracks are more sophisticated than his bossa work – and the guitar playing is extremely emotional and a testament to Powell's virtuosity. Tracks include "Um Abraco ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic set of orchestral arrangements from one of Brazil's greatest leaders ever – the mighty Luiz Arruda Paes, the man who provided musical backings for more albums than we can count! This album's a set of instrumental tunes by Luiz – big band takes on Brazilian standards and samba ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British ... LP, Vinyl record album
