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.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
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.
One of the more obscure entries in the Brazilian music festival genre – with tracks by Olga De Xoala, Guiomar Bronzo, Fernando E Dione, Italo, 3 Toques De Atabques, and Queloande. LP, Vinyl record album
A mixture of bossa tunes and other titles that have a more flowery, more emotional pop approach to them. Maysa's vocals are still quite strong, though, and the best cuts have lightly crafted arrangements that breeze along better than the others. Titles include "Ouca", "Suas ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice tribute to the genius of Roberto Menescal and Ronaldo Boscoli – performed by Maysa, Agostinho dos Santos, Wanda Sa, Manfredo Fest Trio, Os 6 Em Ponto, Sansa Trio, Os Bossais, Maricene Costa, Sambossa 5, and Jose Tobias. LP, Vinyl record album
Great stuff from Marisa Monte – and a record that's criss-crossed with influences, thanks to production by Arto Lindsay, and performances by Marc Ribot, Bernie Worrell, John Zorn, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Nana Vasconcelos, and Ed Motta! Maybe a bit slicker than American press hype would have you ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the more sophisticated albums recorded by Brazilian singer Maria Crueza – with a sound that moves way past her earlier bossa recordings, working in a mode that's similar to some of the more elaborate MPB recordings of the late 70s. Arrangements are by Ivan Paulo, Geraldo Vespar, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A treasure trove of bluesy rock material – and a set that almost works as well as a straight album project from Nick Gravenites and Mike Bloomfield – as it does as the soundtrack for this offbeat film that starred Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland! The vibe here is a bit like other ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
