Rebirth (aka Movimento)

CD (Item 549199) Mr Bongo (UK), 2002 — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...

CD

New work from one of the greatest Brazilian soul groups of the 70s – and they're still pretty darn great! The album's smoother and perhaps a bit less funk-oriented than some of Banda Black Rio's classic work – but it's still a perfect blend of Brazilian rhythms and instrumentation with American soul, handled in a mode that reminds us of recent albums by Ed Motta, with soulful vocals out front, and compressed instrumentation grooving around in a smooth funky style that's reminiscent of the glory days of mid 70s Earth Wind & Fire. The classic reference is no surprise, though, as the group's got some help from Brazilian soul legend Cassiano – who does the arrangements on some of the album's tracks – and a few other tracks feature remixes from London talents like Faze Action and others! Titles include "Samba Blum", "Aquarius", "Magia Do Prazer", "Nova Guanabara", "Candeia", and "Tabuleiro Da Cor". The whole thing's great – right up there with the best work of the samba soul generation, and the kind of record that would make the group huge, even if it were the only one they ever cut!  © 1996-2020, 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.
