Barra 69

LP (Item 397407) Polygram/Philips (Brazil), 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A seminal live set that brings together two giants of the Tropicalia scene – Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, recorded here in a rough-edged performance from 1969! The format has the artists alternating songs throughout the set, then coming together for a duet at the end – and the recording quality is oddly spotty – sounding much more like a bootleg than the higher end sound you'd expect from Philips. But that quality can easily be excused given not only the historical nature of the show, but also the incredible performances by both artists – easily at their most vibrant here, and pulling out an incredible response from the crowd! Rough, but great – an essential addition to the catalog of both artists – with tunes by Caetano that include "Cinema Olympia", "Atras Do Trio Eletrico", and "Superbacana"; by Gil that include "Frevo Rasgado" and "Domingo No Parque", and a duet medley that features "Alegria, Alegria", "Hino Do Esporte Clube Bahia", and "Aquele Abraco".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(90s reissue pressing. Cover has a few stickers in one corner.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • 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.

A wonderful album of lively sambas peformed by one of the greatest singers of the pre-bossa era!

Chico Buarque

Sinal Fechado
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Near Mint-
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach!

Philips (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good
A rare bit of samba jazz from Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this Hammond-lead combo featuring organist Paulo Roberto!

Verve, 1970. Very Good+
One of the darkest albums ever recorded by Astrud Gilberto – her 60s last session for Verve Records, and a batch of beautifully moody tunes throughout!

Composer Of Desafinado Plays
Verve, 1963. Very Good+
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Audio Fidelity, 1962. Very Good+
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together nicely – with lots of jazz, jazz, jazz! Lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Airto

Virgin Land
Salvation, 1974. Near Mint-
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come!
