LP, Vinyl record album


An unusual later album from the great one! (Includes inserts. Cover has some ringwear.)

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Voz E Suor
EMI (Brazil), 1983. Near Mint-
A warm intimate set by these two legendary Brazilian talents – Nana Caymmi on vocals, and the legendary Cesar Camargo Mariano playing some wonderfully mellow keyboards. Mariano plays electric piano on most of the set, and the album's got a laidback quality that brings out the best in Nana ... LP, Vinyl record album

Danca Das Cabecas
ECM, 1977. Near Mint-
A really unique moment for Brazilian genius Egberto Gismonti – as the album marks a strong move away from some of the fuller orchestrations of his previous sets! The album features Gismonti on acoustic 8 string guitar – mixed with piano, wood flutes, and voice – plus some sublime ... LP, Vinyl record album
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s/1968. Very Good+
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together. Lots of short bossa tracks, including "Boato" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Audio Fidelity, 1962. Near Mint-
The legendary 1962 Bossa Nova concert at Carnegie Hall. The concert is legendary not only because it was a bit of a disaster (according to legend, just about nobody got paid!), but also because it brought together a huge amount of Brazilian talent on one stage, and premiered their music to a rabid ...

4 Batutas & 1 Coringa
Continental (Brazil), 1987. Near Mint-
Nice! Although the early work of Jards Macale from the 70s was a lot more experimental, this album features this oft-overlooked Brazilian singer doing a nice batch of material that pays tribute to some of Brazil's greatest singers from an earlier age. Macale's voice is as fantastic as always ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jobim (aka Maita Pere)
MCA, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
An incredibly pure moment of genius from Jobim! Features one of the best versions of "Aqua De Marco" ever, done up in these haunting blue chords, backed by great baroque orchestrations, which descend and trail off, then come sweeping back in. The whole album's just as great, with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sergio Mendes (1975)
Elektra, 1975. Near Mint-
A very groovy batch of soul and pop tracks from Sergio, recorded with some nice smooth 70s arrangements, and nice jazzy production by Dave Grusin. The whole thing's got a very nice LA sound to it, and is a good adaptation of Sergio's pop Brazil sound to a more modern vibe. Sergio gets help from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shadow Of Your Smile
Verve, 1965. Very Good+
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vintage 74
Bell, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Som Da Gente (Brazil), Mid 80s. Near Mint-
Marco plays acoustic and 10 string guitar, with Ze Eduardo Nazario on percussion, Fernando Machado on bass, and Oswaldinho Da Cuica on percussion. LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1986. Very Good+
A rare 80s set from Astrud Gilberto – cut at a time when she was hardly doing any new recording at all! As you'll guess from the title, the album has Gilberto teaming up with German groovemaker James Last – who handles all the orchestrations for the record, and shows a surprising ...
