Aquarela

LP (Item 631017) Ariola (Brazil), 1983 — Condition: Near Mint-
Beautiful work from Toquinho – music that's very much got the painterly sound you might expecvt from the cover! Titles include "Amigo Paco De Lucia", "Alo Alo", "Acende Uma Lua No Ceu", "Aquarela", "Palavras Cruzadas", "Conversando", "Esse Menino", and "Doce Lembranca".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes heavy inner sleeve too! Cover has a small import sticker on the corner, but is great overall.)

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.

Simplesmente
RGE (Brazil), Early 70s. Near Mint-

Chico Buarque

Almanaque
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joao Bosco

Comissao De Frente
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Very Good
One of the best 80s albums from this always-solid Brazilian artist! Joao's not only in fine form vocally, but he has some top-shelf help from Adair Blanc, who co-wrote most of the songs with Joao, and from Cesar Camargo Mariano, who produced and arranged the whole album. Mariano's talent is the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ariola (Brazil), 1980. Near Mint-
Later work by this modern bossa team, but still pretty darn nice – and with a great set of baroque arrangements that add larger orchestrations and occasional choral parts to the team's usual spare guitar/vocal sound.

Flora Purim

Butterfly Dreams
Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBS (Brazil), 1973. Very Good+
Beautifully spare work from guitarist Baden Powell – and a record that certainly lives up to its title!

Luiz Bonfa

Sanctuary
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A pretty darn nice set of tracks that has Luiz mellow moody guitar augmented by some breezy easy arrangements by Pete Spargo. The overall feel is less bossa than it is mellow pop instrumental – but there's a wonderfully airy quality on the best tracks, with guitar, piano, and some wordless ... LP, Vinyl record album
