Heavy funk from 70s Brazil – and a collection that digs even deeper that the legendary first Black Rio volume! These tunes are all Brazilian in origin, but draw plenty on American funk and soul of the 70s – not just rhythms, but also instrumentation, vocals, and production styles too – a cool collision of modes that makes for some really memorable music throughout! DJ Cliffy's always hipped us to great music with some of his other compilations, but this one really blows the top off – introducing our ear to some super-rare gems that we've never even seen on original vinyl – proof that the Samba Soul legacy of Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others really had a big impact on the sound of Brazilian grooves in the 70s. The set features full notes on the music, and features titles that include "Faz Tanto Tempo" by Renata Lu, "Coluna Do Meio" by Zeca Do Trombone & Roberta Sax, "Sinal Vermelho" by Marilene, "Bobeira" by Edson Frederico E A Transa, "Nova Da" by Balanca Povo, "It's My Thing" by Cry Babies, "Ibere" by Avan Samba, "Tema De Azambuja" by Azambuja & CIA, "BR Samba" by Super Som Lord, "Ta Tudo Ai" by Rubinho E Mauro Assumpcao, and "Bananeira" by Emilio Santiago.

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. 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.
