Hi-Lo's Happen To Bossa Nova

LP (Item 60907) Reprise, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of the grooviest albums ever made by this great jazz vocal group – and a record that's darn impossible to find on wax! The Hi Lo's here hit the bossa craze of the 60's, and they turn their vocal harmonies to a Brazilian groove, in sort of a roundabout recognition of the way that their style was taken over by Brazilian groups like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy. The record has lots of cool cheesy vocal tracks with a nice groove – even if the bossa part isn't too authentic – and the track list includes cuts like "O Pato", "Gold Brazilian Sun", "One Note Samba", and "Carnaval".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tri-color mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape on all seams.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
