La Vem O Brasil Descendo A Ladeira

CD (Item 695886) Som Livre (Brazil), 1979 — Condition: Used
$18.99 ...


A nice late 70s mix of MPB and samba – put together with the rootsy feel of the latter, but also some of the more creative song styles of the former! There's a tightness here that's unusual for a samba record – especially at the time – and although the instrumentation features lots of festive percussion, chorus vocals, and acoustic guitar, the overall styles shift around a fair bit from song to song. Titles include "La Vem O Brasil Descendo A Ladeira", "Pelas Capitais", "Valentao", "O Prometeu", "Som Moleque", "Choro Pequenino", and "E Assim Pintou Mocambique".  © 1996-2022, 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.
