(Still sealed with hype sticker.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Walter Wanderley

Cheganca
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- 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! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anna Margarida

Anna
Vault, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A very dreamy set of bossa work – recorded in the US by singer Anna Margarida, with a gentle feel that's even warmer than most of the work coming out of Brazil at the time! The approach is maybe a bit more understated than a bossa album on Verve, but has a lot of the same elements – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Simone

Face A Face
EMI (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful early album from Simone – a set that's filled with compelling sounds and styles that really mark her music as part of the Milton Nascimento generation! There's a slow-building and spacious sort of feel to the record – a mix of instrumentation that includes some jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. Sealed
An incredible little record – and the set where it really all comes together for this legendary funky jazz group! Azymuth were already great on their debut, although maybe a little experimental at times – but here, they really find the soulful groove that later got them big fame on the ...

Meirelles E Sua Orquestra

Brazilian Beat Vol 2
London (Brazil), 1967. Very Good
Brilliant 60s work from Meirelles – ostensibly an album of pop batucada tracks, but a record that also features some great jazzy groovers lurking in the mix of tracks! The stunner here is Meirelles' great take on "Mas Que Nada" – zooming around in mod 60s instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good+
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johan Dalgas Frisch

Symphony Of The Birds
MGM, 1968. Very Good
A weird little record! The album is a "symphony of Brazilian birds" – and is literally that! The album features assorted bird calls and songs, recorded for the set – backed up by larger orchestrations that range from serious to playful, and which almost stand in contrast to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beto Guedes

Sol De Primavera
EMI (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold

Philips (Mexico), 1966. Very Good-
Brazil salutes Mexico – in a rare little album from the legendary Tamba Trio! The album's a rare Mexican release from the group – and was later issued as a self-titled set in Brazil in 1968 – but this original package is the first release of this great material! The record is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Mysterious Traveller
Columbia, 1974. Very Good
A new sense of focus in the Weather Report sound – that building, soaring groove that would become the group's trademark in the mid 70s – offered up here in one of it's first and finest examples! The approach is one to describe accurately on paper – but which is instantly ... LP, Vinyl record album
