Chico Buarque — Carioca (Brazilian pressing) ... CD 6.99

Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the past decade – and Chico's working here with arranger Luiz Claudio Ramos in a set of tracks that mix rootsy instrumentation with more complicated phrasing – a style that carries echoes of some of Edu Lobo's best 70s material, and which, like that, has a genre-less quality that's all its own! Chico's original lyrics and raspy vocals would be enough to make this record great, but the instrumentation takes it to a space that's even more special. Tracks include "Suburbio", "Outros Sonhos", "As Atrizes", "Renata Maria", "Leve", "Sempre", "Imagina", "Dura Na Queda", and "Ode Aos Ratos". DVD features the documentary Descontrucao – directed by Bruno Natal, running for nearly 60 minutes in length, and featuring titles in English, Spanish, and Portuguese!  © 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.

Damn – a heck of a treat! Chico Buarque's one of those artists we never take for granted – and although we've been loving his music for decades, we've also been surprised for that long at how consistently great it is – especially during his maturing years, when he really seems to ... CD

Chico Ao Vivo
BMG (Brazil), 1999. Used 2CD
Beautiful live material by Chico – and the best record he's made in years! The set has a similar feel to the recent Gal Costa live set on BMG – with 2 discs worth of material, recorded with backing by a great little combo in an intimate live setting. Chico's voice is incredibly warm, ... CD

Para Todos
RCA (Brazil), 1993. Used
That's a young mug shot of Chico Buarque on the cover, but the album's a later effort from the 90s – and one that really holds us rapt with the brilliance of Chico's mature songwriting and performance! The record's part of that ever-growing legacy that may well make Buarque one of the ... CD

Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album ... CD

Chico Buarque

Sinal Fechado
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho ... CD
BMG, 1990. Used
Live work by Chico Buarque – a surprisingly nice set overall, and a great demonstration of the way the energy of his live albums almost took over force from his studio sets at this point in his career! The double-length performance features some great musical direction from Cristovao Bastos ... CD

Sou Apenas Uma Senhora
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used
A set of tracks dedicated to Elizeth Cardoso – sung by Zeze Gonzaga, who must have been a contemporary of hers, and arranged beautifully by Cristovao Bastos. The set's got the sophisticated, slightly-classic feel of other titles on the Biscoto Fino label – supervised by Olivia Hime ... CD
