Tim Maia – The Soul Of Brazil

CD (Item 527001) Philips/Universal, 1970s — Condition: Used

A great look at the legendary Tim Maia – easily one of the strongest soul stars in 70s Brazil! Back in the day, Tim Maia was one of the greatest things going in Brazil – an artist who strongly embraced US modes of funk, soul, and club – and who managed to cook up a groove that easily rivaled that of his inspirations! Unlike others in his generation, Tim usually leaned more towards American modes than Brazilian ones – so there's less rootsy elements in his music than you might find in the Samba Soul years – and usually more of a focus on his own great lyrics. But that never keeps things from getting funky – because many of the titles here have a nice little groove – and Maia's sense of balance during these years really stands out from some of his later, mellower work. CD features 13 tracks from 1970 to 1983, most from the early 70s – and titles include "Nao Vou Ficar", "A Festa Do Santo Reis", "Voce E Eu Eu E Voce", "Nao Quero Dinheiro", "Voce", "Primavera", and "Azul Da Cor Do Mar".

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 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.
