Benito Di Paula (1975)

LP (Item 750953) Copacabana (Brazil), 1975 — Condition: Very Good+

Titles include "Vai Ficar Na Saudade", "Sempre Assim", "Coisas Da Vida", "Sanfona Branca", and "Nao Me Importo Nada".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing in the textured cover.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • 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.

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.

Cesar Camargo Mariano & Nelson Ayres

Pointer (Brazil), 1985. Very Good
By the mid 80s, Mariano and Ayres were two of Brazil's greatest keyboardists – rooted in jazz, but open to a lot more ideas too! Both players had started out in a straighter jazz piano mode, but were more than willing to embrace new electronic keyboards as they were developed over the ... LP, Vinyl record album


Samba Oba!
Imperial (Brazil), 1964. Very Good+
A pretty nice set of samba and bossa instrumentals – all performed by the orchestra of Carioca, a leader who's got a similar style to Lyrio Panicali – mixing light and jazzy together in a 60s-styled Brazilian sound! Titles include "Nega", "Samba De Uma Nota So", ... LP, Vinyl record album


Eu Miltinho
RGE (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good-
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a ...

RGE (Brazil), 1960. Very Good
Early work from the lovely Maysa – accompanied here by the RGE Orchestra, in a style that's a mix of bossa and samba modes!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77

Love Music
Bell, 1973. Very Good
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also ...

Audio Fidelity, 1962. Near Mint-
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together nicely – with lots of jazz, jazz, jazz! Lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz Melodia

Perola Negra
Philips (Brazil), Early 70s. Very Good
Early work by Brazilian singer Luiz Meldoia – recorded in 1973 with a rootsy style that combines samba styles with some of the more sophisticated arrangements creeping into MPB at the time – making for a deeply soulful approach that works wonders with Luiz's unique vocals! The album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1956/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A 2LP reissue of very hard to find Hank Mobley sessions from the mid 50's – Mobley's Message, and Mobley's Second Message. The record's filled with damn great hard bop tenor material, with groups that include players like Donald Byrd, Art Taylor, Kenny Dorham, Doug Watkins, and Walter Bishop. ... LP, Vinyl record album
