LP, Vinyl record album

(€8.32 || £7.35 || ¥1115) (approx.)

A pretty great little album from Bonfa – always one of the more corruptible bossa players, working here in a groovy set of pop arrangements by Deodato with a lively American twist! Some tunes are fast-driving bossa numbers with good jazz accompaniment, others have backing vocals in a wordless 60s style, and others are mellow and gentle. The best of these latter ones is "Oba Oba", which has great duet vocals by Pat Kirby and Bonfa – and other titles include "Coffee Beans", "Gentle Rain", "Batuque", "Summer Summer Wind", "Be Still", and "Love Birds".

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.

Brazilian Scene
Philips, 1965. Very Good+
A great little session from Luiz Bonfa – one that features a hip core combo mixed with slightly larger backings – all in a groove that really stands out from other mainstream bossa albums of the 60s! Bonfa's acoustic guitar is set up here with Jerome Richardson on flute, Don Payne on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brasilian Beat '67
Design, 1967. Very Good+
A very unusual bit of bossa nova – and a record that seems to criss-cross a few different A&M Records modes of the 60s! At one level, the group's got a Brasil 66 feel – since they use a female vocal chorus on some cuts, breezing along with the grooves in a style that's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hotmosphere
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
Known world-round for his classic work with Sergio Mendes and Weather Report, percussionist Dom Um Romao is one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, and this compilation of 1976 recordings for Pablo has him playing in a nice raw groove. The tracks have a beautifully jazzy sound, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Missa Dos Quilombos
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint-
This album is a live recording of a performance that seems to be structured like an opera or a long religious ceremony. There are some choral-like moments but some very "normal" songs as well . All the songs were penned by Nascimento, Casaldaliga and Tierra except for one. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Butterfly Dreams
Milestone, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s/1968. Very Good+
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together. Lots of short bossa tracks, including "Boato" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fontana (Brazil), Late 60s. Very Good+
Not much of a cover, but the set features some really groundbreaking work from the late 60s Brazilian scene – including "Bom Dia" and "Divino Maravilhoso" by Gal Costa, "A Banda" and "A Estrada O Violeiro" by Nara Leao, "Roda Viva" by MPB4, ... LP, Vinyl record album
So Nice (Pickwick pressing)
Pickwick, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Sort of a repackaging of the Brasil '65 album on Capitol – done here in a pressing by Pickwick that features a very psychedelic cover! The record's a mixed bag of tracks that has some bossa piano trio stuff, plus some vocal cuts with Wanda De Sah, the alto and flute of Bud Shank, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ataulfo Alves (1970)
Imperial (Brazil), 1970. Near Mint-
One of the best albums ever from sambista Ataulfo Alves – with titles that include "Leonar", "A Nova Aurora Raiou", "Salve A Bahia", "Foi Covardia", and "Batuca No Chao". LP, Vinyl record album
Nos Dias De Hoje
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record ... LP, Vinyl record album
