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.

Chico Buarque

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!

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.

Elis (1966)
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Near Mint-
An excellent early album by one of Brazil's greatest singers!

The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Philips (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint-
Elis Regina never lets us down – as you'll hear on this great record from 1971! The album captures Elis straddling the fence of her styles – one foot in the older jazzy bossa/samba camp, the other in the more sophisticated range of baroque MPB she virtually invented. Her voice is ... LP, Vinyl record album
