Nossos Momentos (Dutch pressing)

LP (Item 923572) Philips (Holland), 1982 — Condition: Very Good-

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 warmer overtones that Gil was using in his own music at the time – not really the soulful modes, but stronger use of electric keyboards and flowing rhythms that bring in a bit of jazz and a nice sense of fullness. Titles include "Prenda", "Luzes De Ribalta", "Gas Neon", "O Que E O Que E", "Cantico Negro", "Cancao Da Volta", "De Noite E De Dia", and "Nossos Momentos".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Maria Bethania

Recital Na Boite Barroco
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
One of Maria Bethania's first albums, and a beautiful set of live recordings – with a vibe that's a lot more uptempo and swinging than some of her later work! The style here almost has traces of bossa – a lighter, groovier feel at times than some of the more emotive modes that Bethania ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz Melodia

Perola Negra
Philips (Brazil), Early 70s. Very Good
Early work by Brazilian singer Luiz Meldoia – recorded in 1973 with a rootsy style that combines samba styles with some of the more sophisticated arrangements creeping into MPB at the time – making for a deeply soulful approach that works wonders with Luiz's unique vocals! The album ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint-

Philips (Brazil), 1960s/1970. Very Good-
Great compilation of classic work by Jorge Ben – issued in 1970 by Philips, but featuring tracks from his hard-to-find 60s albums! The cuts are all beautiful – and feature that haunting mix of soul, jazz, and samba that was Ben's stock in trade during his best years. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz Bonfa & Maria Toledo

Braziliana
Philips, 1965. Very Good+
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque

Meus Caros Amigos
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
A wonderful mid 70s album by Chico Buarque – proof that he was still one heck of a songwriter, and a pretty decent singer, despite the fact that he'd grown a silly-looking moustache! The production's very nice, too – with that excellent compressed sound that was being used on some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano Veloso

Caetano Veloso (1967)
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Sealed
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good
A mid-60s collection of some of the big songs that were rocking the Brazilian festivals of the time – early work by Gilberto Gil, Elis Regina, Claudette Soares, Geraldo Vandre, Jair Rodrigues, Nara Leao, and others! LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Falso Brilhante
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina & Toots Thielemans

Aquarela Do Brasil (Mexican pressing)
Philips/Jazz Unlimited (Mexico), 1969. Very Good
A one of a kind record that still sparkles as brightly today as it did back in the late 60s – an amazing collaboration between Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and Scandinavian jazzman Toots Thielemans – done in a style that easily makes it one of the best records ever from both artists! ...

Maysa

Voltei
RGE (Brazil), 1960. Very Good
Early work from the lovely Maysa – accompanied here by the RGE Orchestra, in a style that's a mix of bossa and samba modes! The recording is filled with lots of the bluer tones that set Maysa apart from some of her contemporaries – hints of the deeper emotion you might find in ... LP, Vinyl record album
