LP (Item 913124) Fontana (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+
A great collection – featuring famous collaborations between Elis Regina and Gilberto Gil, Pele, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Tim Maia, Pierre Barouh, Jair Rodrigues, and Toots Thielemans! The Tim Maia and Pierre Barouh tracks are especially unusual!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • 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.

Caetano Veloso

Fontana (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint-
A nice little compilation of work by Caetano – featuring tunes pulled from the late 70s and early 80s, not his most crazy or striking years, but a time when he was really pulling himself together, and recording some incredibly well-written songs. Titles include "Odara", "O ... LP, Vinyl record album
RGE (Brazil), 1967. Fair
Pure genius from a young Chico Buarque – simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gal Costa

Minha Voz
Polygram (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+
Great stuff from Gal – even if the record is a lot smoother than her earlier work! The record's got a light jazzy style – like a lot of Gal's other work from the time – but this actually works quite well for her lovely voice, especially on the more intimate numbers. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque

Francisco (smile cover)
Ariola (Brazil), 1987. Very Good+
Beautiful later work from the great Chico Buarque – an album that still shows him very much at the top of his game, and maturing into an even more wonderful artist than he was as a young man! The depth of songwriting is wonderful – expressive without over going too far over the top ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque

Globo/Polydor (Brazil), 1993. Very Good+
(Cover has light ring & edge wear.) LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz Bonfa

Violao Boemio
Imperial (Brazil), 1968. Very Good+
Quite a rare little album from Luiz Bonfa – a session that's definitely got the bohemian qualities hinted at in the title, and one that comes off with a lot earthier sound than you'd expect from the date! Bonfa's guitar is presented in a mode that's mostly spare and beautiful – leaping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zimbo Trio

RGE (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+
Sublime bossa grooves from the legendary Zimbo Trio – working here with expanded arrangements that really improve their sound! The combo's already plenty darn famous for their jazzy piano trio take on the bossa sound of the 60s – but they're working here with larger horn backings from ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1966. Very Good+
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77

Love Music
Bell, 1973. Very Good+
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enoch Light

Spaced Out
Project 3, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Enoch Light – a trippy blend of many 60s styles, all put together with sublime Project 3 Sound! The album's billed as featuring "exploratory trips through the music of Bach, Bacharach, the Beatles – Integrating the Moog, the Guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westbound, 1976. Fair Gatefold
An oft-overlooked gem by Funkadelic – the group's last album for Westbound, and a record that really has them growing into a great new groove! Bootsy and Eddie Hazel have stepped aside for the set, but that gives Bernie Worrell plenty of room to work his magic on keyboards – in a way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Buhaina's Delight
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good+
A landmark recording by a whole new chapter in Art Blakey's career! During the early 60s, Blakey expanded the Jazz Messengers from a quintet to an incredibly tight sextet – adding in the trombone of Curtis Fuller for an extra-punched up frontline that also included Freddie Hubbard on trumpet ...
