LP, Vinyl record album


Great stuff – one of Flora Purim's more R&B-sounding albums from the 70s, produced by George Duke with an appreciation for Flora's Brazilian jazz roots, but with a smoother sound that's in keeping with Duke's own work of the time! The combination is pretty sweet – a professional culmination of the mixture of fusion and Brazilian jazz that had been happening in the San Francisco scene during most of the 70s, and featuring many of the musicians who had helped make that groove so strong. Players include Airto, Sheila Escovedo, Joe Farrell, Ronnie Foster, Bobby Lyle, and Larry Williams – and tracks include "Niura Is Coming Back", "From The Lonely Afternoon", "Freeway Jam", "Beijo Partido", "Corine", and "Love Lock". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some light staining & waviness.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Every Day Every Night
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautifully soulful record from Flora Purim – still awash with touches from her Brazilian roots, but also done with a great 70s LA sound! Airto's helping Flora out on production, but the real hero here is Michel Colombier – who handles most of the arrangements and wrote a good deal ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brasilian Beat '67
Design, 1967. Very Good+
A very unusual bit of bossa nova – and a record that seems to criss-cross a few different A&M Records modes of the 60s! At one level, the group's got a Brasil 66 feel – since they use a female vocal chorus on some cuts, breezing along with the grooves in a style that's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Milestone, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
One of Flora Purim's 70s classics – an album recorded with that soaring breezy vocal style that she virtually invented – heard here before it got too old, and too copied by other singers! The set's a live one, filled with lots of energy – and recorded before a very enthusiastic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Butterfly Dreams
Milestone, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Um Banda Um
Warner (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint-
A great early 80s set from Gilberto Gil – and one that has him fully assuming the soul singer mode that would carry him strongly through the rest of the decade! There's still a samba soul sense of funk at the core, but the overall instrumentation is a bit fuller and more electric – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elis, Essa Mulher
Warner (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold
Really great late work from Elis Regina – recorded in the company of arranger Cesar Mariano, whose masterful touch made for some of Elis' best albums of the 70s! Cesar arranged and conducted here, and although the production is perhaps a bit more contemporary than Elis' work for Philips, the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (France), Early 60s. Very Good
A very cool little package – one side of music from Black Orpheus, the other some live recordings done in Rio! LP, Vinyl record album
Hotmosphere
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
Known world-round for his classic work with Sergio Mendes and Weather Report, percussionist Dom Um Romao is one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, and this compilation of 1976 recordings for Pablo has him playing in a nice raw groove. The tracks have a beautifully jazzy sound, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1977. Very Good+
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nos Dias De Hoje
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record ... LP, Vinyl record album
Miragem
Top Tape (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A very cool Brazilian rock group from the early 70s – one who step out here with some touches that almost remind us more of French rock from the time than the usual MPB – and some groovy psychedelic modes as well! Arrangements can be full – a mix of strings interlaced with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Edu & Tom
Philips (Brazil), 1981. Near Mint-
An incredible later meeting by two of the most sophisticated musical talents of the bossa generation – and a record that's done in the same intimate, spare setting as Jobim's meeting with Elis Regina a few years before! Production is by bossa legend Aloysio De Oliveira – and the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
