This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

A bit more straightforward, more modern, and more electric than some of Luiz Gonzaga's work of the 70s – but still a darn nice album, performed with an instantly appealing charm, and a spacious sense of soul that allows Luiz many different voices at once.

Mid 70s and mellow work from two legendary Brazilian vocalists – the great Dick Farney and the lovely Claudette Soares, singing here in a set of duets that include a number of classic Brazilian tunes set to lush arrangements.

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!

They don't call Dick Farney the Sinatra of Brazil for nothing – and as you'll hear in this set, his vocals are wonderful – weather singing in Portuguese or English! The arrangements are great, very timeless – and handled by Julio Cesar Figueiredo, perfect for Dick's voice! LP, Vinyl record album
Brazilian diva Elizeth Cardoso lays down a number of tracks recorded either with the Zimbo Trio, or with Jacob Do Bandolim. The Zimbo tracks have a nice bossa feel, and the titles include "Cidade Vazia", "Abertura", "E Louxo So", "Tem Do", and "Derradeira ... LP, Vinyl record album
