LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A lively collection of classic samba material – featuring some really nice gems from the revivalist era of the early and mid 70s. As with all Luaka Bop compilations, the liner notes are great, and provide a strong introduction to the music. There's a total of 13 cuts in all – including "SPC" by Zeca Pagodinho, "Sufoco" by Alcione, "Quem Me Guia" by Almir Guineto, "Claustrofobia" by Marinho Da Vila, "A Deusa Dos Orixa" by Clara Nunes, and "Formosa" by Ciro Monteiro.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original US pressing. Shrinkwrap has a small hole in front. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

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. Truthfully, most of these tracks probably have more of a samba sound than a bossa one, but it's light and airy, and with a good jazzy groove that' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve (Mexico), 1969. 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! Arrangements are by Albert Gorgoni, who'd handled Gilberto's previous September 69 album – but the style here is a bit mellower, a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis Regina in London
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British ... LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1973. Very Good+
A wonderful early 70s release from Brazilian singer Taiguara – a record of sublime complications, beyond description or compare! The album brings together so many different strands of music – from ambitious Nascimento-like scoring to simpler, almost folksy moments, to some more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes

Sergio Mendes (1983)
A&M, 1983. Near Mint-
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath! The sound of the set is very much in the best mainstream soul modes of the time – never too electric overall, but put together with a nicely warm groove that continues the legacy of ...

RCA (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good
A sweet set from 60s Mexico – more bossa nova than anything else! Features nice combo backing with bass and drums – and some female vocals from Lupita Cuevas! LP, Vinyl record album

Continental/Orfeon (Mexico), 1973. Very Good
A Brazilian rock classic! The band had a very sophisticated sound that mixes nice vocal production with spare arrangements supported by guitar, piano, and bass. The sound is difficult to describe – but the record has some extremely compelling songwriting, and great vocal work that carries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Any Number Can Win
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1965. Very Good+
A real classic by Cal – one of the trademark albums of his time at Verve, and a unique blend of jazz, Latin, and other groovy influences! The tunes have that lightly jazzy approach that made Cal a hit with the radio and jukebox crowds at the time – a bossa-influenced mix of vibes, ... LP, Vinyl record album
