Incredible stuff – an instant classic, and a record that will blow your mind! Ed Motta is known to most as one of Brazil's leading soul singers – a nephew of Tim Maia, and the one true heir to the unique Brazilian soul sound that Maia formed in the 70s. And while we've loved Ed's records of the past few years, this one is head and shoulders above anything else he ever recorded – a fantastic batch of warm jazzy soul tunes, recorded with a laidback style that recalls the best sound of 70s mellow soul. Although Ed's a major star in Brazil, he's also got impeccable taste – and for years has been a connoisseur of 70s soul jazz, underground funk, and some of the more groundbreaking work on the current global groove scene. This brilliant album's a tribute to all of that music, and far more – as Ed reaches for a whole new sound – one that may not net him any gold records in Brazil, but which will forever deepen our respect for and love of his work! The record's got an amazing use of Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer piano, jazzy rhythms, and even a touch of strings – and it fits together wonderfully as a suite of songs that are sophisticated, soulful, and touched with a warm brilliance we never expected! Titles include "Sus-Tenta", "Um Dom Pra Salvador", "Doce Ilusao", "Cervejamento Total", "Papuera", "Malumbulo", "Valse Au Beurre Blanc", and "Linduria".  © 1996-2021, 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.
