Festa Para Um Rei Negro

LP (Item 43918) Philips (Brazil), 1971 — Condition: Very Good

A very compelling album – and a rootsy change from the work Jair of Rodrigues during the 60s! The album starts out with a strongly forro-based groove – and although it shifts back to other samba sounds through the progression of the songs, there's a distinctly (and slightly radical) folksy bent to the whole recording. Titles include "A Missa", "Pisa Nesse Chao Com Forca", "Bloco Da Solidao", "Meu Pai Falou Ta Falado", "Terra Boa", and "Dei Tempo Ao Tempo".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover is nice!)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

O Sorriso Do Jair
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good
A cool 60s live set from Jair Rodrigues – one that captures his vocals with a raspy, earthy edge that's really great – mixed up here both in upbeat jazzy samba backings, and some folksier moments too!

An incredible live album from Gal Costa – one that's easily as great as any of her studio albums from the time!

Elis Regina & Jair Rodrigues

Dois Na Bossa - Numero 2
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good
A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums!

Philips (Brazil), 1977. Sealed
Fantastic work from 70s Brazil – served up here by the great Lady Zu, who was one of the few female artists in the mostly-male samba soul generation!

Airto

Identity
Arista, 1975. Near Mint-
A soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
