Batucada Brasileira – The Great Rhythm Of Brazilian Samba Schools

CD (Item 909768) CID/Parrot, 1970s — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

No artist listed – although the cover claims that the tracks are by the great samba schools of Brazil, and we're inclined to believe them, because the tracks are all pretty darn great! The album features 11 driving batucada numbers – fierce percussion at the bottom, light dancing rhythms over the top, and occasional flourishes on guitar on a few numbers. There's no titles listed either, but the quality of the work is great – a simple, stripped-down batucada album – and one with a really no-nonsense appeal!  © 1996-2019, 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.
