This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
One of the greatest early albums by this lovely female harmony quartet from Brazil – a sublime blend of bossa rhythms and lightly floating vocals – all handled with the incredible flair of the Elenco label at the time! Oscar Castro Neves arranged the material, and the girls do a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty amazing little series – one that traces the evolution of 100 years of Brazilian music – with an especially strong focus on the best styles of the 20th Century! The performance is a live one – and features a host of talents, both famous and lesser-known – all very ... LP, Vinyl record album
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. The tracks are pulled from different recordings by Elis, over the years 1966 to 1979, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums! Even at this young age, her ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chico Buarque, Ney Matogrosso, Gal Costa, & Others
The soundtrack for the film version of Chico Buarque's famous opera Malandro – and quite possibly the best recording of the music we've heard! The style here really benefits from the tighter studio production of the film – and the tunes are put together with strong arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very nicely packaged 2LP set that brings together some of Gal Costa's best work for Philips! The set spans her Tropicalia years, and moves into the 70s as Gal developed a style that was more sophisticated, and which eventually drew her more into the mainstream. Titles include "London ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
A really great record – one that mixes some folksy currents with more modern-styled 60s Brazilian instrumentation – almost an instrumental take on territory of Geraldo Vandre! Includes great versions of "Ponteio", "Roda Viva", "Domingo No Parque, Travessia" ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little live set from Maria Bethania – one recorded with the lighter, looser sound she was using in the early 80s – and which stands as a nice contrast to her more dramatic concert performances of the 70s! The music director for the show is Gilberto Gil, and there's a bit of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
