then checkout as usual.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent album by Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete, and one that has him leading an orchestra through a set of tracks he composed and produced himself. The orchestra gives a beautifully full sound to the record, and is a nice counterpoint to other Sete albums from the time, which could sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early collection, before lambada was packaged cheaply and shipped out to the rest of the world – with tracks by Chiclete Com Banana, Novos Barbaros, Olodum, Banda Mel, Sossega Leao, and Aurelio Do Sax. LP, Vinyl record album
The official album of the 1980 MPB Festival in Brazil – with work by Joyce, Diana Pequeno, Elza Maria, Exporta Samba, Dercio Marques, Oswaldo Montenegro, Fernanda, Baby Consuelo, Quinteto Violado, and others. LP, Vinyl record album
Killer work by Astrud Gilberto – very different than her Verve sides of the 60s! The album was produced by Astrud, arranged by Deodato – and has that wonderful warm full jazz feel of her classic album on CTI, but also a bit more like some of the funky work of Jorge Ben at the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent compilation of unusual Brazilian music! The comp features work by the legendary Brazilian producer Roberto Quartin – pulled from his self-named Brazilian record label – his second after the legendary Forma label, home to many bossa nova classics of the mid 60's. The scope ... LP, Vinyl record album
A Brazilian rock classic! The band had a very sophisticated sound that mixed nice vocal production with spare arrangements supported by guitar, piano, and bass. The sound is difficult to describe – but the record has some extremely compelling songwriting, and great vocal work that carries ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite Ornette Coleman albums of the post-Atlantic 60s years – a set that still hangs onto some of the bold rhythmic conception of his previous records, but also points the way towards his freer jazz modes to come! The group's a trio – with really tremendous work from ... LP, Vinyl record album
