$4.99 ...

CD

(€4.12 || £3.67 || ¥553) (approx.)

A pretty nice little collection of Maria's work for Philips – mostly from the mid 70s, when she was working in that wonderful baroque mode of hers, extra-dramatic, with lots of wonderful arrangements that propelled songs by Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, and others into a whole new territory! Titles include "Ronda", "Gema", "Calice", "Cheiro De Amor", "Amor Amor", "Sonho Meu", and "Brincar De Viver". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Sony (Japan), 1986. Used
One of Maria Bethania's best albums of the 80s – a set that has the singer almost hitting a more personal, more intimate mode – working with music from Caetano Veloso that helps bring in a closeness that Bethania was sometimes missing in her sound! The approach is a bit jazzy at times ... CD

A&M (Brazil), 1970. Used
An incredible record – from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy ... CD

3 of Djavan's best early albums – in one nicely priced box set! The records are all truly great – a wonderful blend of the soulful, jazzy, and baroque – stepping off a tradition of MPB started by Milton Nascimento, and handled with a sound that's a bit more ambitious, and which ... CD

Muitos Carnavais
Philips/Polygram (Brazil), 1977. Used
A lively album that mixes Caetano's rich songwriting style with a hard percussive base – a more grooving approach than usual – which gives the tracks a fast jumpy feel, and gives even more power to Caetano's strong vocals! There's some slight post-Tropicalia touches at time – a ... CD
Chico Buarque (1984)
Philips (Brazil), 1984. Used
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly ... CD
