Tide

LP (Item 9507) A&M, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

An incredible record – from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy sense of space that Antonio Carlos first brought to his music in the 60s. From the very first note, you can feel the strange magic of Jobim and Deodato at work – as the album appears to be smooth and mellow, yet has a strangely unsettling undertone that keeps us coming back after all these years! Tracks include "Tema Jazz", "Carinhoso", "Rockanalia", and a nice remake of "Girl From Ipanema".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mexican stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Warner, 1976. Near Mint-

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good+
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group!

Look Around
A&M, 1967. Very Good
Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best!

CTI/A&M (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good

The vibe is wonderful from the very first note – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud Gilberto

Astrud Gilberto Now
Perception, 1972. Very Good+
Killer work by Astrud Gilberto – very different than her Verve sides of the 60s! The album was produced by Astrud, arranged by Deodato – and has that wonderful warm full jazz feel of her classic album on CTI, but also a bit more like some of the funky work of Jorge Ben at the time ...

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!

An excellent compilation of unusual Brazilian music!

Orfeon (Mexico), 1973. Very Good-
A Brazilian rock classic! The band had a very sophisticated sound that mixed nice vocal production with spare arrangements supported by guitar, piano, and bass.

Maria Bethania

Memoria De Pele
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Very Good
One of Maria Bethania's great collaborations with arranger Jaime Alem – an artist we loved as part of the team of Jaime & Nair back in the 70s, and who's really helping Bethania find some deeper space here in the middle years of her career! At a time when Maria had moved into some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Milestone, 1982. Very Good+
Excellent American release from the brilliant Brazilian fusion outfit Azymuth. While occasionally they managed to get a bit complicated in their arrangements, the songs and groove never suffered for it, and the crisp modern production complements their tight sound nicely, with warm key washes and ...

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Orlando Silveira

As Melhores Mulheres
Odeon (Brazil), Late 50s. Good
Very early work from Antonio Carlos Jobim, who handled the arrangements here with Orlando Silveira – more samba than bossa! There's vocals on most tracks, but Jobim and Silveira are the only artists listed on the cover. LP, Vinyl record album
