My Backyard (aka Meus Quintais)

CD (Item 778295) Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...


One of the most personal albums we've heard in years from Maria Bethania – a set that's got a quietly intimate vibe, one that really lives up to the spirit of the title – a place where Bethania can be herself and share some of her innermost thoughts! The backing is wonderfully intimate – usually just a bit of samba-styled percussion or guitar, but taken at a very slow pace – and Maria's vocals, while still having the majesty of other records, also come across with a more up-close spirit overall – one we find surprisingly moving, even after all these many years of loving her music. Titles include "Moda Da Onca", "Arco Da Velha India", "Candeiro Velho", "Alguma Voz", "Xavante", "Mae Maria", and "Povos Do Brazil".  © 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.

A brilliant new live set from Maria Bethania – one recorded with all the drama and glory of her classic live albums of the 70s! The set's an extension of Maria's Maricotinha album of recent years – and like that one, it features some excellent backings by Jaime Alem, a supremely rich ... CD

Warm and wonderful work from trombonist Raul De Souza – easily his best outing in many many years, and a record that almost takes us back to his 60s bossa roots as Raulzinho! The style here is a bit more modern than Raul's bossa sessions – but the record has a similar warmly flowing ... CD

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used
Way more than just a sweet Brazilian singer running through the usual sophisticated modes of the Biscoito Fino label – and instead a deeply moving set that features odd rhythms, haunting vocals, and some great spare instrumentation from players who include Lelo Nazario on keyboards and Nana ... CD
