Chico Buarque & Maria Bethania Ao Vivo

LP (Item 39788) Philips (Brazil), 1975 — Condition: Very Good+

A fantastic illustration of the live music tradition on Brazil – one that really arose on records during the 60s, and blossomed strongly on 70s records like this – which feel almost more like an event than a recorded document! The concert features a magnificent meeting of Chico Buarque and Maria Bethania – both very strong talents on their own, balanced in this really great way amidst larger backings from Maestro Gaya – duetting on tunes that really turn into something special from their performance – never a challenge of egos, but instead a wonderful folding of strong ideals. Terra Trio provide the rhythms – and most numbers are Buarque originals – with titles that include "Flor Da Idade", "Vai Levando", "Bem Querer", "Noite Dos Mascarados", "Tanto Mar", "Gota D'Agua", "Com Acucar E Com Afeto", and "Sem Fantasia".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Missing inner sleeve. Cover has a center split spine.)

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.

Luiz Melodia

Perola Negra
Philips (Brazil), Early 70s. Very Good
Early work by Brazilian singer Luiz Meldoia – recorded in 1973 with a rootsy style that combines samba styles with some of the more sophisticated arrangements creeping into MPB at the time – making for a deeply soulful approach that works wonders with Luiz's unique vocals!

Great compilation of classic work by Jorge Ben – issued in 1970 by Philips, but featuring tracks from his hard-to-find 60s albums!

Luiz Bonfa & Maria Toledo

Braziliana
Philips, 1965. Very Good+
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with ...

Chico Buarque

Meus Caros Amigos
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
A wonderful mid 70s album by Chico Buarque – proof that he was still one heck of a songwriter, and a pretty decent singer, despite the fact that he'd grown a silly-looking moustache! The production's very nice, too – with that excellent compressed sound that was being used on some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano Veloso

Caetano Veloso (1967)
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Sealed
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso!

Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good
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

Elis Regina

Falso Brilhante
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina & Toots Thielemans

Aquarela Do Brasil (Mexican pressing)
Philips/Jazz Unlimited (Mexico), 1969. Very Good
A one of a kind record that still sparkles as brightly today as it did back in the late 60s – an amazing collaboration between Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and Scandinavian jazzman Toots Thielemans – done in a style that easily makes it one of the best records ever from both artists! ...

Maysa

Voltei
RGE (Brazil), 1960. Very Good
Early work from the lovely Maysa – accompanied here by the RGE Orchestra, in a style that's a mix of bossa and samba modes!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77

Love Music
Bell, 1973. Very Good
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also ...
