CD (Item 940193) EMI (Brazil), 1996 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A surprisingly wonderful recent album by Maria Bethania – one that features a lot of arrangements by the great Jamie Alem (of Jamie & Nair fame), and an overall sound that's softer and warmer than some of Maria's more imposing records. There's an intimate quality to the set that we really like, and Maria sounds better than we've heard on many other sides from the same time. Titles include "Ambar", "Chao De Estrelas", "Iluminada", "Lua Vermelha", "Onde Estara O Meu Amor", and "Uns Versos".  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Sony (Brazil), 1988. Used
One of Maria Bethania's best albums of the 80s – a set that has the singer almost hitting a more personal, more intimate mode – working with music from Caetano Veloso that helps bring in a closeness that Bethania was sometimes missing in her sound! The approach is a bit jazzy at times ... CD
