This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
Nice compilation of some of Edu Lobo's best work from the 60's – including a number of tracks cut with Tamba Trio and Maria Bethania. The set's filled with nice bossa groovers, including cuts like his classic "Upa Neguinho", plus "Casa Forte", "Zanzibar", "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic work from one of Brazil's greatest artists – a collection of Maria's earliest recordings for Philips, pulled from her records for the label from the late 60s and early 70s! Bethania's style was like no one else's at the time – dark, serious, and incredibly powerful – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gal Costa pays tribute to one of the greatest Brazilian songwriters of an earlier age – the great Ary Barroso, one of the first to also get his songs translated into other global languages too! The language here is all Portuguese, though – but nicely updated by Gal in that range of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smooth harmony vocals by this classic Brazilian quartet – released on the 10th anniversary of the group, and an excellent example of the way they'd matured over the years! The style is still in the mode of their older work – with harmonies right up front in the mix – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A light and dreamy set of Brazilian vocal tracks – recorded in 1967, and featuring the voice of singer Lenita Bruno, a strong 60s talent with a style that's somewhat like Sylvia Telles. Arrangements on the set are by Clare Fischer – who plays piano, organ, and electric harpsichord in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Features arrangements from Wilson Mauro, Luiz Roberto, and Sergio Carvalho – on titles that include "Porta E Pra Bater", "Vida Marcada", "Jeito De Paz", "Ele E Portela", "Couro Comendo", "Minha Rua", "Mulato Chocolate", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Gal Costa's mellow mainstream sides from the 80s – hardly the sort of work you might have imagined during the heady Tropicalia years, yet still very much the top of the heap for MPB at the time! Gal's got a new sort of sophistication here – a depth that really comes through on ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – and a set that's also one of the most intimate recordings that the great Joao Gilberto made during the 90s! There's a very spare, stripped-down vibe to the album – very much in the spirit of Gilberto's classic material, with an undeniable ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s – played by the Chico Hamilton group as part of the soundtrack! The combo was a key part of the LA scene at the time, but are oddly featured as a regular club act in the movie's New York setting – but we'll gladly forgive that geographic ... LP, Vinyl record album
