Como Dizia O Poeta

LP (Item 9121) RGE (Brazil), 1971 — Condition: Very Good-
One of the greatest 70s collaborations between Vinicius De Moraes and Toquinho – and a record that's made even nicer by vocals from co-composer Marilia Medalha! Arrangements here are full and lofty – still driven with some of the lighter bossa rhythms of the pair's other albums, but given a bit more cohesion through the efforts of arranger Jose Briamonte – who kind of takes the whole thing to the next level, and gives the record the grander feel of earlier records on labels like Forma or Elenco, which are clearly the inspiration for this one! Titles include "Como Dizia O Poeta", "Tarde Em Itapoan", "Tomara", "Samba de Gesse", and "Samba da Rosa".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Zimbo Trio e Cordas

E Tempo De Samba
RGE (Brazil), 1967. Very Good
A cool change for the Zimbo Trio – one that has them adding in extra strings to their core bossa jazz style, for a sound that's completely sublime all the way through!

RGE (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-

Helena De Lima

O Ceu Quem Vem De Voce
RGE (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good
A Brazilian singer with a hell of a voice – the lovely Helena De Lima, whose vocal range really fits the lush moods of the tunes on the set! Things are in a more melancholy look than you'd guess from Helena's look on the cover – a nice sort of blueness that's never too overdone, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Outra Noite No Cangaceiro

Helena De Lima

Uma Noite No Cangaceiro

A live and lively little bossa vocal set – recorded at the Cangaceiro nightclub, with backing by a really great small combo!

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.

Maria Creuza

Meia Noite
RCA (Brazil), 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
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 ...
