Gentlemen (180 gram vinyl)

LP (Item 602531) Smog/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

Freaky funky sounds from The Gentlemen – a Brazilian combo from the early 70s, and one who work in a really dark mix of modes! At some level, the group feel a bit like some of the 60s Jovem Guarda groups – in that they have a bit of an influence from Anglo rock, particularly the more garagey variety. But they're also trippier too – and have that great post-Tropicalia Brazilian mode of reaching out for plenty of styles at once – to really mix things up in a freaky, fuzzy brew! Basslines are especially great – very pronounced, even on the mellower tracks – and there's some cool fuzz on the guitars to keep things from every sounding too clean or polished – particularly on some of the longer tracks, which feature great psych-styled jamming with the organ as well! Titles include "Vazio", "Sorriso Selvagem", "Vestido Branco", "Uma Voz Outra Voz", "O Embarque", "Eu Juro", "Isso E Amor", and "Agora Estou Livre".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Reissue. Includes obi.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.

Salvation, 1974. Near Mint-
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come!

Mike Falcao E Seu Conjunto (aka Walter Wanderley)

No Embalo Do Samba
Imperial (Brazil), 1966. Very Good-
Wonderful bossa and samba grooves – with a hip edge that reminds us a lot of Ed Lincoln's best records from the time – no surprise, since Falcao is actually Brazilian organist Walter Wanderley, working under another name!

Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A wonderful album of lively sambas peformed by one of the greatest singers of the pre-bossa era! Cyro's in fine form in this live set from the 60s, and he's performing here with Dilermando Pinheiro in a choppy style that's recorded with a lot of soul, and some good echoey production. Most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

This is the original US pressing of an album that was later issued by Capitol under a different name.

Shadow Of Your Smile
Verve, 1965. Very Good-
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite!

Maria Muldaur
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through!
