Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint-
The title says "88", but the album's from 1978 – and it's one of Sergio's great sets from the 70s that mixes older Brazilian roots with sweeter American soul! The sound is really wonderful – almost more LA than Rio, but still with plenty of Brazilian elements filtered into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra (Brazil), 1980. Sealed
A great little album by Elis – recorded for Elektra, but very much in the spirit of her classic work for Philips in the 70s. Like so many of those records, this one features arrangements and keyboards by Cesar Camargo Mariano – and the list of tracks is a stellar blend of work by some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Milestone, 1976. Near Mint-
An excellent bit of lost Brazilian fusion Hugo and Jorge Fattoruso, produced by Airto Moriera! Opa recorded Golden Wings in the Fantasy studios with that sweet west coast vibe that the best albums of the label had at the time. Spacey keyboards and drums drive the sound brilliantly here, with bits ... LP, Vinyl record album
Frevo Mulher
CBS (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint-
Flanged out Brazilian vocals from the late 70s. Amelinha's got a style that's a bit like Gal Costa in some parts, and a bit folksy in others – and the overall sound of the record is kind of like an updating of some of the more rootsy experiments done by the MPB stars of the early 70s. ...

Milestone, 1977. Very Good+
One of the 2 great LPs of fusion that the South American group Opa cut for Fantasy during the 70's. The record was recorded in the Fantasy studios, and it's a great mix of Brazilian jazz styles and candombe, the Uruguayan carnival rhythm, with the west coast fusion sound that the label was doing ... LP, Vinyl record album
O Carnaval De Gal
Philips (Brazil), 1970s/Early 80s. Near Mint-
A collection of Gal Costa's work from the 70s, plus a few added tracks from the early 80s. Most of this material was recorded in the post-Tropicalia years, but it's still strong stuff – showing Gal as one of Brazil's best vocalists of the time. Titles include "O Bater De Tambor", ...

Selva (Brazil), 1988. Very Good+ (reissue)
Not the same Maria Rita that rose to international fame in the past decade or so – but an earlier, much more obscure singer with a nicely rootsy vibe – one whose presence in the Brazilian music scene is maybe more welcome to our ears than her famous later namesake! The album came out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nasci Para Bailar
Philips (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint-
A lovely record from Nara – one that features arrangements by Joao Donato and Antonio Adolfo, with all the keyboard loveliness that you might expect from those two! There's a gentle and slightly jazzy feel to the record – smooth, and in a different style than Nara's bossa revival work ... LP, Vinyl record album
