❔

(Cover has a small piece of masking tape and some notes in pen on back.)

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.

Joao Donato

Donato-Deodato
Muse, 1973. Very Good+
The legendary meeting of the two biggest Brazilian keyboard talents of the 70s – Joao Donato and Eumir Deodato – coming together in beautifully funky formation! The sound is a great blend of the moody electric work of Donato's classic Quem E Quem album, and some of the fuller, funkier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+
A groovy blend of bossa themes and some of the lighter pop treatments that Bonfa often received – not really a problem for us, as the approach always filled out his sound a bit more, and made for some catchy tunes with a very groovy style! Tracks include "Bahia Soul", "Dois ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

Cheganca
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve!

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
A&M, 1966. Very Good-
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert!

Odeon, 1960s. Very Good-
Features the work of Joao Gilberto, Wilson Simonal, Milton Banana Trio, Questa Brasil Moderno & Marcos Valle. LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1977. Very Good+
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa Rio

Alegria!
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
An incredibly groovy record – and one of two rare sides cut by Bossa Rio – a short-lived vocal group handled by Sergio Mendes! The sound here is kind of an extension of Sergio's work with Brasil 66 – but Bossa Rio have deeper chops vocally, with both male and female singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77

Vintage 74
Bell, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud Gilberto

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

John Cage with David Tudor

Presents Variations IV
Everest, 1965. Near Mint-
A very cool album that presents Cage at the height of his "chance" composition stage – featuring him with David Tudor weaving an eclectic mix sounds on a sound system – recorded live at the Feigen-Palmer Gallery in LA! The work is the kind of stuff you always hear about with ... LP, Vinyl record album
