Gilberto Gil — Gilberto Gil (1968) (with bonus tracks) ... CD 13.99
A bold leap forward from Gilberto Gil – his first album recorded during the Tropicalia years, and an amazing collaboration with arranger Rogerio Duprat! The album's got a sound that really bridges scenes in Brazil – elements of older folkloric musics, folded with samba rhythms, folded again with psychedelic touches from Os Mutantes – who also help out on the set – all wrapped together with a sound so revolutionary, it still crackles with energy all these many years later! The sound and style are impossible to describe accurately, which is part of the charm of the record – and it's key placement as one of the prime musical texts of the Tropicalia years. Titles include "Marginalia II", "Luzia Luluza", "Pega A Voga, Cabeludo", "Frevo Rasgado", "Domingou", and "Domingo No Parque".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Gilberto Gil Unplugged
Warner (Brazil), 1994. Used
CD...$9.99 12.99
One of the first great Brazilian entries in the Unplugged series – and proof that that format worked as good as (if not better than) it did for American artists! Gilberto kicks back with a nice little combo – playing acoustic guitar and bringing a gently soulful groove to tunes that ... CD

Gilberto Gil Ao Vivo
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. Used
An excellent live set from 1974! Gilberto is playing in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – although there is a larger group on a few tracks that plays electric guitar and keyboards, but never in a way that ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1974/1977. Used
A nice assortment of odds and ends from the end of Gil's years at Philips – originally put together for the fabulous Ensaio Geral box set, but issued here finally as a separate package! The material is very striking in comparison with Gil's other work of the early 70s – and shows him ... CD
Warner/Tropical Storm, 1991. Used
Gilberto Gil's still got a nicely sharp edge here on this great set from the late 80s – a record that broke bigger than most of his others from the decade, at least on a global scale – and an album that showed the world that Gil still had plenty of energy and new ideas to offer! There's ... CD

Gilberto Gil

Louvacao
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD

O Viramundo (Ao Vivo)
Polygram (Brazil), 1972/1974. Used 2 CDs
Wonderful live work by Gilberto Gil – recorded on his triumphant return to Brazil in the early 70s! The groove is very very stripped down – and most tracks feature Gil out front on guitar, with backing by only keyboards and percussion. If you know Gil's work, though, you know that he ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1959. Used
The fab first album by Sergio Mendes – very different than his later work! Sergio's more in a straight bossa mode here – playing with a tight little combo that features saxophone and trombone next to his own firey work on piano – tight and jazzy, and even with a few traces of US ... CD

Trio Esperanca

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1992. Used
The first French album recorded by this legendary Brazilian trio – but one that also features plenty of guests from their homeland – including Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Joao Bosco, and Milton Nascimento! The group sing in a mode that's every bit as acapella as ... CD

Trio Esperanca

Segundo
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1995. Used
Incredibly beautiful work from this trio of female Brazilian singers – a group who recorded in France in the 90s, but who have a quality that goes right back to some of the best harmonies of the bossa nova generation! Most of the tracks are straight acapella, and feature haunting vocal ... CD

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Personalidade
Philips (Brazil), Mid/Late 60s. Used
Excellent work by Jobim – spanning the mid 60s late bossa years, into the early 70s baroque ones, when his mad compositional genius was really opening up! The set's a great way to get some of these cuts on vinyl – as they're not actually as easy to track down as we'd like. Roberto ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album ... CD
