LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
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 – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original mono pressing. A nice copy.)

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.

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Fool On The Hill
A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached! The warmly glowing Brasil 66 style is still very strongly in place, but the music here is all a bit hipper – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ...

Sergio Mendes

Brasil 86
A&M, 1986. Near Mint-
One of Sergio Mendes' strongest soul sets of the 80s – a record that seems to bring his music back into focus a bit more than some of the previous albums – even though it still keeps things strongly in a contemporary R&B mode! Production and arrangements here are shared by Sergio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77

Primal Roots (Japanese pressing)
A&M (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A really unique little album from Sergio Mendes and Brasil 77 – one that's in a much more rootsy style than any of his other work! The "primal roots" here are taken seriously, and like some of his other contemporaries in Brazilian music, Sergio's looking back a bit, and towards a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beth Carvalho

Saudades Da Guanabara
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Very Good+
(Cover has some pen in a number of places.) LP, Vinyl record album
Songs (Brazil), 1987. Near Mint-
An obscure Joyce album from the late 80s, and a very nice set of mellow readings of Jobim classics, performed with help on keyboards from the great Gilson Peranzzetta! Joyce's guitar and vocals are in the lead, and Peranzzetta plays electric piano and a bit of synth, in washes of sound that feel a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trova/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Certainly one of the greatest albums by this excellent (and oft-overlooked!) group from the 70s! The band of young Bahians deliver a great mix of tracks tinged with bits of rock, funky samba, and even a few psychedelic influences – with alternating male and female vocals, and some excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
Sadness on guitar – a perfect title for Baden Powell's work on his chosen instrument, especially the way he could bring a simple but emotive style to his music! Powell's work on guitar here is often quite spare, but beautifully handled – set up with rhythms by a small combo that ... LP, Vinyl record album
RGE (Brazil), 1967. Very Good
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
Dot, 1968. Near Mint-
A groovy blend of bossa themes and some of the lighter pop treatments that Bonfa often received – not really a problem for us, as the approach always filled out his sound a bit more, and made for some catchy tunes with a very groovy style! Tracks include "Bahia Soul", "Dois ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Farney & Claudette Soares

Tudo Isto E Amor Vol 2
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint-
Mid 70s and mellow work from two legendary Brazilian vocalists – the great Dick Farney and the lovely Claudette Soares, singing here in a set of duets that include a number of classic Brazilian tunes set to lush arrangements. The sound is very classic – kind of a 70s take on an older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque De Hollanda

Chico Buarque De Hollanda Na Italia
RGE (Brazil), Late 60s. Very Good
An early record that really links Chico Buarque to the European scene – an audience that would keep Chico's music strong for many years, and with a reach that went far beyond some of his contemporaries! The set was recorded in Italy, but with all the charm and sparkle of his classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
