Brazilian Beats N Pieces – The Best Of Brazilian Beats

CD (Item 636246) Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s/2007 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

A great reworking of the classic Brazilian Beats series – one that features 32 tracks from the previous 6 volumes, all selected and remixed live by Phat Kev! The package is kind of a Brazilian mixtape overall – of the sort that were floating around a few years back in the underground, but done here in a tight, professional style that's seriously funky – blending older Brazilian beats with contemporary production modes, but always in a way that keeps the spirit of the originals intact! Kev doesn't do too much to the core tunes – but does have a way of stepping lively from one number to the next – and titles in the mix include "Eu Sou Mais Eu" by Anna Mazzotti, "O Journaleiro" by Toni Tornado, "La Lupita" by Nico Gomez, "A Festa" by Silvio Cesar, "Nao Aquento Voce" by Trio Esperanca, "Marcos" by Quarteto Uai, "Hot Pants Road" by Boogaloo Combo, "Carolina" by Seu Jorge, "Take Me Back To Piaui" by Juca Chaves, "Deus Me Faca Funky" by Skowa & Mafia, "Summertime" by Rosina De Valencia, "Carolina Carol Bela" by Jorge Ben & Toquinho, "Samblues" by Sambalanca Trio, and "Barumba" by Dom Salvador.  © 1996-2020, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
