That's a young mug shot of Chico Buarque on the cover, but the album's a later effort from the 90s – and one that really holds us rapt with the brilliance of Chico's mature songwriting and performance! The record's part of that ever-growing legacy that may well make Buarque one of the consistently strongest talents to emerge from Brazil in the 60s – material that holds onto everything that made him great at the start, but which also sounds quite different than that period, too – in a way that a rare few (maybe even just Caetano Veloso) can pull off this well. Chico grabs us beautifully with every word he sings, and the arrangements have the same understated brilliance of his performance – on titles that include "Paratodos", "Romance", "Outra Noite", "Sobre Todas As Coisas", "Tempo E Artista", "A Foto Da Capa", and "Piano Na Mangueira".

Additional Marks & Notes

Used CD Grade

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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used
Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the ... CD
Duetos
BMG (Brazil), 1980s/1990s. Used
A collection of duets recorded by Chico Buarque during the 80s and 90s – warm extensions of musical friendship by one of Brazil's greatest singers of the past 40 years. Chico's always been supportive of singers in many generations – from the older artists who inspired him in the 60s, ... CD
Chico Buarque (1984)
Philips (Brazil), 1984. Used
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly ... CD
Almanaque
Universal (Brazil), 1982. Used
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple ... CD
Chico Buarque (1978)
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Used
One of Chico's strongest albums of the late 70s – a masterful set of sophisticated tunes, recorded with some great guest help from Milton Nascimento, Zizi Possi, and Elba Ramalho! The album's got a slightly melancholy feel overall – not completely somber, but a slightly world-weary ... CD
Flora e MPM
RCA (Brazil), 1968. Used
Flora Purim's first LP – and one of the coolest albums ever cut by this legendary Brazilian singer! The record's unlike Flora's later fusion work in the US – and features strong late bossa arrangements with a nice jazzy finish. The group's an all-star lineup of Brazilian 60's jazz ... CD
Mundo Melhor
BMG/RCA (Brazil), 1976. Used
Beth Carvalho was one of the leading lights of the new samba generation of the 70s – and this great little album is a good illustration of the lady at her best! Beth can hit a lively groove with the best of them, but also bring a bit more expression to her voice as well – sometimes ... CD

Pranto De Poeta
RCA (Brazil), Late 70s. Used
A beautiful album of soulful samba tunes – recorded late in the life of singer Cartola, with a gently swinging sound that leaves a nice focus on his still-strong vocals. Titles include "Tempos Idos", "Nos Dois", "Que E Feito De Voce", "Grande Deus", ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1977. Used
A beautiful album of soulful samba tunes – recorded late in the life of singer Cartola, with a gently swinging sound that leaves a nice focus on his still-strong vocals! Cartola's at the height of his powers here – expressive in just the right way, but never going too far off the deep ... CD
