Le Bresil De Vinicius De Moraes Avec Toquinho & Maria Creuza

LP (Item 44719) EMI (France), 1970 — Condition: Very Good-

Recorded in Buenos Aires, but a strong set of Brazilian tunes by these three greats! Singer Maria Crueza was at her best during the early 70s – and working here with the classic bossa team of poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 70s pressing in a flip-back cover, with some wear and aging.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Wonderfully evocative work from Egberto Gismonti – a set based around the music of Hecto Villa-Lobos, but taken to much more creatively modern territory!

Audio Fidelity, 1963. Very Good+
Very groovy album of bossa nova organ tracks – with a sound that's similar to Walter Wanderley, Ed Lincoln, or other 60's Brazilian organ players.

Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath!
