CD (Item 540004) Philips/Verve, Mid 70s — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

By the mid 70s, Elis Regina had transformed from being a simple and strong bossa singer, into one of Brazil's best-ever singers – with a complicated emotional style that ranges with some of the best work of the 20th century (and we'd include singers like Sinatra, Scott Walker, and Jacques Brel in that territory!) This "best of" set was put together by Elis' longtime compatriot Roberto Menescal, and it features some of the best moments from her massive Philips albums of the early and mid 70s. Titles include "Atras Da Porta", "Mucuripe", "Como Nossos Pas", "Folhas Secas", "Voce", "E Com Esse Que Eu Vou", "Nada Sera Como Antes", and "Madalena".  © 1996-2021, 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 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.

Studio Canal (Brazil), 1980. Used CD & DVD
An amazing package – one that brings together the album Elis from 1980, in a special box that includes a bonus DVD, and lots of cool other extra bits – including announcements of a show, a program for the show, reproductions of press clippings, 3 buttons, 5 photographs, a pin, a sticker ... CD
EMI, 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

With a great lineup of guest artists including Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Gal Costa, and Shirley Horn! CD

Caetano Veloso

Bicho
Philips/Polygram (Brazil), 1977. Used
Sweetly jazzy, funky, and soulful work from Caetano Veloso – a great departure from some of his headier work of the early 70s – and proof that he still sounds great, even when in sweetly melodic territory! The album's got some full backings from Perinho Albuquerque, but the sound is ... CD
Philips, 1960s/1970s. Used
An excellent double-length set that brings together some of Antonio Carlos Jobim's best work for the Philips and Verve labels, plus a few other nice rare bits! The set features work from records that were issued under Jobim's own name, plus tracks from records by Elis Regina, Astrud Gilberto, and ... CD

Chico Buarque

Sinal Fechado
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho ... CD

Jorge Ben

Jorge Ben (1969)
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the ... CD

Joao Gilberto

Joao
Philips/Polygram (Brazil), 1991. Used
A later album by bossa legend Joao Gilberto – but with all the fragile brilliance of his best early work! The album features arrangements by Clare Fischer – the wonderful talent behind some of the best Brazilian-tinged jazz sessions of the 60s and 70s, a perfect accompanist to Joao's ... CD

Caetano Veloso

Araca Azul
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1972. Used Gatefold
One of the weirdest, wildest albums Caetano Veloso ever recorded – a highly experimental session that shows that his ties with the avant art world were still plenty strong on his return to Brazil! Despite a goofy cheeseball photo of Veloso on the cover in a bikini, the sound on this one is ... CD
A&M/Verve, 1970. Used
The first (and maybe only) American release by one of the greatest Brazilian singer/songwriters of the sixties – and a record that's quite different than any Sergio Mendes work of the time, despite Sergio's name in the title! The vibe is like Lobo's best of Brazil from the late 60s – a ... CD
