Festa Funk

CD (Item 888910) RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1984 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...


Also available
Almir Ricardi — Festa Funk ... CD 16.99

A set that's definitely the funk festival promised in the title – but one that's also served up in an 80s-styled mode! Almir Ricardi sings in a soulful style, amidst lots of basslines and keyboards set up by Lincoln Olivetti and Robson Jorge – both Brazilian musicians with plenty of background in the groovier side of the spectrum – and who do a great job of setting up Almir in these midtempo electric funk grooves that owe a fair bit to American work by Zapp or Kleeer! The style is great – and an especially cool mix with the Portuguese lyrics – and titles include "Sao Paulo High Society", "Festa Funk", "Super Man", "Pura", "Raca", "Rebola Bola", and "To Parado Na Tua".  © 1996-2018, 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.
