Sublime early work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of album that made him one of the global breakout talents from Brazil in the 70s – and a record that you can still pick up all these many years later, and find the same sort of genius! Arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – who gives the whole thing a quality that's like his own famous work, but even better – given the strength of Lins' songwriting and amazing vocal presentation – a level that, like Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, seems to grab us in ways that go beyond the language of the lyrics – this sort of universal soul that slides right down into the warmly jazzy arrangements! Lins plays organ, guitar, and electric piano – and the set features more organ from Wagner Tiso, amidst a wonderful set of larger arrangements. Beautiful all the way through –a nd titles include "Nao Tem Perdao", "Abre Alas", "Deixa Eu Dizer", "Desejo", "Rei Do Carnaval", "Tens", "General Da Banda", and "Avarandado". © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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.
