Elis Regina — Falso Brilhante ... LP 11.99
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 the overall sound is relatively different – mellow one minute, rockish the next, cast in stark piano after that, and always moving onward with the sort of variety we might expect from Gal Costa or Maria Bethania at this point. Some cuts are tinged with Latin and South American instrumentation, while others more guitar and electric keyboards – and highlights of the album include versions of two Joao Bosco songs "O Cavaleiro E Os Monihos" and "Jardins De Infancia", which has a beautiful soaring electric feel to it, and is a real groover along the lines of the tracks you might find on Blue Brazil. Other titles include "Tatuagem", "Como Nossos Pais", "Velha Roupa Colorida", "Los Hermanos", and "Um Por Todos".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Saudade Do Brasil
WEA (Brazil), 1980. Used 2CD
A great little album by Elis – recorded for Warner/Elektra at the end of her career, but very much in the spirit of her classic work for Philips in the 70s. Like so many of those records, this one features arrangements and keyboards by Cesar Camargo Mariano – and the list of tracks is ... CD

Sony (Brazil), 2000. Used
Looks like a "greatest hits" set, but it's actually an excellent collection of rare early work from the 60s – featuring a young Elis singing to light bossa and jazz arrangements, in a style that's quite different from her later work. Unfortunately, the package gives no real ... CD
Velas (Brazil), Late 70s. Used
No date on this one – but hearing the music, we're guessing the set's from the late 70s. Elis is singing with Cesar Mariano and his Cia group on most tracks – however a few titles feature Cesar and a trio. Titles include "Travessia", "Vida De Bailarina", "Trist ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1980. Used
A pretty sweet album by Elis – 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 on ... CD

Elis Regina

Philips (Brazil), 1971. Used
Elis Regina never lets us down – as you'll hear on this great record from 1971! The album captures Elis straddling the fence of her styles – one foot in the older jazzy bossa/samba camp, the other in the more sophisticated range of baroque MPB she virtually invented. Her voice is ... CD

Gilberto Gil

Gilberto Gil Ao Vivo
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. Used
An excellent live set from 1974! Gilberto is playing in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – although there is a larger group on a few tracks that plays electric guitar and keyboards, but never in a way that ... CD

Caetano Veloso

Prenda Minha
Polygram (Brazil), 1998. Used
Nice recent live set by this master of Brazilian song! The feel is pretty mellow in the best parts, with Caetano singing soulfully, with only guitar and small backing accompaniment. Some titles have more of a rockish feel, but there's plenty of nice ones with an older mellow sound. Titles ... CD

Tom Jobim

Matita Pere
Polygram (Brazil), 1973. Used
An incredible moment of genius from Antonio Carlos Jobim – a sublime 70s record that's a huge change from his genius work of the 60s – and which shows that he was really continuing to grow as an artist at the time! The record features one of the best versions of "Aqua De Marco" ... CD
