Transversal Do Tempo

LP (Item 47951) Philips (Brazil), 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-
Classic live set from 1978, featuring Elis at the height of her interpretive powers, performing with backing by Cesar Mariano and his fusiony CIA group. The sound is nicely electric, with elements of rock and jazz blending beautifully behind Elis' rich vocals. Mariano plays Fender Rhodes in a warm way that overcomes the sound space of the live setting, enveloping Elis in warm mellow sound. Titles include "Construcao", "Fascinacao", "Deus Lhe Pague", "Cartomante", "Meio-Termo", "Boto", and "Cao Sem Dono". Great stuff, with the kind of raw emotion that makes live albums by Brazilian artists well worth tracking down!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 80s issue.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

EMI (Brazil), 1980. Very Good+
A pretty sweet album by Elis Regina – and one of the last she ever did! The arrangements have a bit more of an electric jazz sound than usual – but they actually give her voice a nice sound, and create some nice lush soulful tracks that have a very sweet sound. Cesar Mariano is still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis Especial (1968)
Philips (Brazil), 1968. Very Good+
A great one by Elis, and a late-60s effort that seems to mix her bossa leanings with a slight nod to some of the Tropicalia changes that were going on around her! There's lots of cool Brazilian pop instrumentation, jazzy bossa grooves, and weirdly-arranged organs and guitars, plus some wild ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis (1972)
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Falso Brilhante
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Very Good 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

Philips (Brazil), 1974. Near Mint-

The second volume in this nice tribute series to great Brazilian composers, cut by the swingin' MPB4 vocal group, in their unique harmony style.

Philips (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint-
A fantastic set from the Zimbo Trio – one that has them backed by a larger instrumental group – one that's never too brassy or stringy at all – and which really just adds an extra zing to the sound of their bossa piano grooves! The album's got a totally grooving version of Ivan ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque & Joao Cabral De Melo Neto

Morte E Vida Severina
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good
An incredible record from a key modernist moment in Brazilian music – and a set that features some really stunning early work from Chico Buarque! The set's a live one – a stage performance based upon a text from Joao Cabral De Melo Neto – but it's got plenty of music, and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
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! Lady Zu's a bit like Tim Maia at the time – a soul singer first, and Brazilian artist second – and works here with a sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
