Everybody's favorite bossa album just got a little better! Bebel Gilberto's Tanto Tempo set is one of the recent runaway hits of Brazilian music – a lively set of modern bossa tunes that has crossed over with listeners around the globe, bringing the sound of the bossa to a whole new generation of listeners. Now, the set's designed to go even further – as it's remixed by a host of DJs and producers from the global groove underground! The package is really well done – not just a bunch of naff "pump up the beat" type tunes, but very thoughtful explorations of the melodies and rhythms of the original tunes, mostly handled by artists whose own recording work is largely in the Brazilian or bossa idiom. Tunes include "August Day Song" remixed by Da Lata, "Sem Contencao" remixed by Truby Trio, "Alguem" remixed by Ananda Project, "Tanto Tempo" remixed by Peter Kruder, "So Nice" remixed by Mario Caldato, "Close Your Eyes" remixed by Faze Action, "Samba Da Bencao" remixed by 4 Hero, and "Tanto Tempo" remixed by Chari Chari. © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
