CD (Item 537505) Mr Bongo (UK), 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


11 Brazilian-tinged remixes – all handled by Sao Benitez, and featuring a lot of work from the recent Mr Bongo catalog, plus some other surprise entries that round out the set nicely! The tunes all have a nice jazzy feel to them – and although the work is by different artists from track to track, overall the album has a really unified feel. Titles include Sao Benitez remixes of "Why Can't We Live Together" by Bukky Leo, "Dot Com Blues" by Jimmy Smith, "Lately" by Samantha Mumba, "Abeira Mar" by Ive Mendes, "As Famosas Gargalhadas Do Yuka" by Paula Lima, "Love & Happiness" by River Ocean, "Toda Menina Baiana" by Los Amigos Fandangos, "Congo" by River Plate Samba Orchestra, and "Que Alegria" by Gil Felix.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print.)

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.

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.
