Millennium

CD (Item 599536) Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


This set from Universal mixes together tracks from Joao Donato's early bossa nova sides for Philips, plus his later album Lugar Comum from 1975. The bossa stuff is excellent – and there's not been good reissues of this material on the market for a long time. Titles from this era include "Sambou Sambou", "Rio", "Olhou Para Mim", "Silk Stop", "Caminho De Casa", and "Blue Changa". The work from Lugar Comum is electric and funky, with a choppy samba sound on many cuts. It's a bit jarring to hear these tracks in the midst of the bossa, but there's a lot of numbers that are worth the soundclash – including "E Menina", "Tudo Tem", "Lugar Comum", and Joao's great funky version of "Bananeira". (Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly. Out of print.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Nice album recorded in 1989 under the supervision of bossa master Roberto Menescal. Menescal did all the arrangements, and he plays guitar behind Nara's lovely vocals. The record was recorded in Japan, with excellent fidelity, and a spare instrumentation in the classic bossa style. Nara reprises ... CD

Moreno's the son of Caetano – and even though this album can't possibly live up to the claim on the label that the album takes up strand's of Caetano's most groundbreaking work, it's still a pretty great little record! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare ... CD
