Mundo Melhor

LP (Item 845770) RCA (Brazil), 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

Beth Carvalho was one of the leading lights of the new samba generation of the 70s – and this great little album is a good illustration of the lady at her best! Beth can hit a lively groove with the best of them, but also bring a bit more expression to her voice as well – sometimes almost reaching territory of her more sophisticated partners in the MPB generation – but never losing sight of the lightly tripping qualities that make her samba so great! Core instrumentation comes from cavaquinho, 7 string guitar, and lots more percussion – arranged by Ivan Paulo and Rildo Hora, on titles that include "Antes Ele Do Que Eu", "Te Segura", "Salario Minimo", "Meu Escudo", "Divina E A Musica", "Mundo Melhor", and "Quero Alegria".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, some aging, and an unglued top seam held with a piece of clear tape.)

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.

Tight orchestral material from Zaccarias, and featuring a set of bossa and samba groovers played by a heavy ensemble reed section.
