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 mixture of bossa tunes and other titles that have a more flowery, more emotional pop approach to them. Maysa's vocals are still quite strong, though, and the best cuts have lightly crafted arrangements that breeze along better than the others. Titles include "Ouca", "Suas ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live work from the lovely Maysa – a great late 60s set done in a mix of jazz, bossa, and even groovier styles! The recording has a nice sense of the "room" – with spontaneous crowd noise often coming in to spur additional enthusiasm in the music – and Maysa's star power ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – ... LP, Vinyl record album
An unusual compilation of Brazilian and American tunes – done as a promo disco for radio! Titles include "All Together Now" by The Beatles, "Trains & Boats & Planes" by The Box Tops, "Cancao Da Volta" by Doris Monteiro, and "Adoro" by Altemar ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wickedly wonderful album by Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded in LA in the mid 60s, and a perfect meeting of styles that makes for one of his most compelling albums of the 60s! Jobim sings and plays over pillowy-soft arrangements by Claus Ogerman – lightly dancing numbers that weave ... LP, Vinyl record album
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ...

Vinicius De Moraes with Toquinho & Marilia Medalha
One of the greatest 70s collaborations between Vinicius De Moraes and Toquinho – and a record that's made even nicer by vocals from co-composer Marilia Medalha! Arrangements here are full and lofty – still driven with some of the lighter bossa rhythms of the pair's other albums, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best albums we've ever heard by this soulful Brazilian singer – with modern arrangements that mix together sparkling jazzy backings and slight bits of rootsy percussion. Rogerio Duprat and Portinho arranged the album together – and Jair's vocals are in tremendous shape ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the more unusual 70s albums from Gilberto Gil – a record that has him alternating tracks with Germano Mathias – in a mix of older samba and choro modes! Titles include "Minha Nega Na Janela", "Samba Rubro Negro", "A Situacao Do Escurinho", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare ... LP, Vinyl record album
