Carmen Miranda

LP (Item 877944) RCA (Brazil), Early 30s — Condition: Near Mint-

A 60s album of important early work by this first lady in Brazilian music!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

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.

Crystal Illusions
A&M, 1969. Very Good+
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still ...

Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America!

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group!

Sunrise
Pablo, 1984. Very Good+
Sweet Brazilian rhythms – one of the tightest of the Pablo albums by Paulinho Da Costa, but still a nice batch of Brazilian tinged fusion, with a smooth production style that reminds us of some of the Japanese albums of the same sort during the late 70s! The set was recorded in LA, with help ... LP, Vinyl record album
Som Maior (Brazil), Early 60s. Near Mint-
Very groovy album of bossa nova organ tracks – with a sound that's similar to Walter Wanderley, Ed Lincoln, or other 60's Brazilian organ players. The groove is hard fast samba – similar to the early Deodato albums we've been stocking – and it's light and airy, and with a good ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tania Maria

Lady From Brazil
Manhattan/EMI, 1986. Near Mint-
You know, despite the fact that this one was recorded in the mid 80s, when we felt that Tania's great jazzy vocal style was being buried in excessive arrangements – in retrospect, it's actually got some darn nice moments. These include the great "Tanoca Vignette", a lively number ... LP, Vinyl record album
