Batucada No 3 – The Exciting Rhythm Of The Wild Brazilian Carnival

LP (Item 622102) Philips (Brazil), 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-

A killer early album of Batucada tracks – filled with lots of tight, short, hard percussive groovers!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 70s Japanese pressing, FDX-212. Cover has light ringwear and a center split in the spine.)

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.

Perola Negra
Philips (Brazil), Early 70s. Very Good
Early work by Brazilian singer Luiz Meldoia – recorded in 1973 with a rootsy style that combines samba styles with some of the more sophisticated arrangements creeping into MPB at the time – making for a deeply soulful approach that works wonders with Luiz's unique vocals!

Chico Buarque

Meus Caros Amigos
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
A wonderful mid 70s album by Chico Buarque – proof that he was still one heck of a songwriter, and a pretty decent singer, despite the fact that he'd grown a silly-looking moustache! The production's very nice, too – with that excellent compressed sound that was being used on some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good

Walter Wanderley

Brazilian Blend
Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Groovy pop organ tunes from Brazil's famous organist! Walter plays in the light peppy style he used on his Verve albums, with plenty of nice organ riffing all the way through! Most tracks are bossa numbers, and titles include "Go Go Theme", "Counting Stars", "White ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zimbo Trio

FM Stereo
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good+
A pretty darn groovy album of tracks – issued here with a title that says "FM Stereo Programacao Especial", which we think means that it was a promo-only album for radio. The cuts are very nice breezy bossa-inflected instrumental tracks on the record, with kind of a nice 70's FM ... LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud Gilberto

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

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good+
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group!
