This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
Most of the classic work by this great Brazilian singer is now out of print on vinyl – but you can at least grab this nice extended "best of" compilation, which features 24 hard to find tracks! The style's a mix of jazzy and bossa material with some of her more serious 70's stuff ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent collection of the amazing work by this oft-overlooked Brazilian vocal group. The MPB4 combo managed to skirt bossa, samba, and MPB styles – and come up with a unique sound that was always extremely pleasing, and often a little challenging. This record features many great cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
A fitting tribute to the masterful work of Brazilian poet and diplomat Vinicius De Moraes – pulled from classic records he cut in conjunction with Baden Powell, Odette Lara, Quarteto Em Cy, Toquinho, and others. The set's a great way to get some of Vinicius' best compositions on vinyl – ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early 70s packaging of an older bossa session by Deodato – done with a modern cover that's clearly trying to cash in on his fame at CTI! Don't let that fakery stop you though, because the record's a great one – a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work by one of Brazil's most unique groups! Of all the contributions that Brazil has made to the world pop legacy, one of the greatest is their strong tradition of pop vocal groups – most of which took a basic American jazz harmony sound and turned it into something really special and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful versions of some of Milton Nasimento's best songs – sung by one of the greatest voices in Brazil, suitably backed by arrangements that bring out all the warmth and joy of the compositions. The tracks are pulled from different recordings by Elis, over the years 1966 to 1979, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sweetly mellow album from singer Maria Creuza – recorded with a bit more of a modern feel than some of her previous albums for RCA, less bossa touches, and a more romantic sound overall – one that has her vocals drifting over serious arrangements that have kind of a sad and late night ... LP, Vinyl record album
A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums! Even at this young age, her ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chico Buarque, Ney Matogrosso, Gal Costa, & Others
The soundtrack for the film version of Chico Buarque's famous opera Malandro – and quite possibly the best recording of the music we've heard! The style here really benefits from the tighter studio production of the film – and the tunes are put together with strong arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very nicely packaged 2LP set that brings together some of Gal Costa's best work for Philips! The set spans her Tropicalia years, and moves into the 70s as Gal developed a style that was more sophisticated, and which eventually drew her more into the mainstream. Titles include "London ...
