Tempo Tempero

LP (Item 959859) Barclay (Brazil), 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-

Produced by Durval Ferreira, with arrangements from Hugo Fattoruso and Wagner Tiso – and some guest vocals from Viva Voz!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes inner sleeve.)

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.

Astrud Gilberto & Walter Wanderley

Certain Smile, Certain Sadness
Verve, 1966. Very Good+
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s! Back in 1966, Verve Records got the great idea of teaming up its (then) biggest Brazilian imports – vocalist Astrud Gilberto and organist Walter Wanderley – both of whom were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fontana (Mexico), 1975. Very Good+
A great little live set from the mid 70s – recorded by Jorge right around the time of his groundbreaking Africa Brasil album, with a mixture of funky samba styles that are all handled with the soulfulness and boundless energy of his best records. The record features a long version of "Ta ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good+
A killer selection of rare bossa tunes from the best early years of the genre – pulled from the catalog of EMI/Odeon in Brazil, one of the best labels for the music at the time! The set's got a very lovely color cover – with some cool 60s typography, listing the title and names of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good+
Great work by Elis Regina presented here in a Mexican only compilation, including "Roda" from 1966 and the Jobim tribute portion from "Elis Especial", a late-60s effort that seems to mix her bossa leanings with a slight nod to some of the Tropicalia changes that were going on ...

Dorival Caymmi

Eu Nao Tenho Onde Morar
Odeon (Brazil), 1960. Very Good+
Magical early work from Dorival Caymmi – and the kind of record that easily shows why he was such a huge influence on Brazilian music! The album bubbles along with a lively mix of samba and larger orchestrations – Caymmi's wonderful vocals and songs filling up the set with a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elza Soares & Miltinho

Elza Miltinho E Samba
Odeon (Brazil), 1967. Very Good+
The first pairing of Elza Soares and Miltinho is a delight throughout – a set that follows on the Brazilian duet style of the time, but seems to handle things with even more charm and flair throughout – never just forcing the two singers together in the company of a tune, but really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Long Distance
Verve, 1988. Sealed
With appearances by David Sanborn, Nico Assumpcao, Ernie Watts, and Marcio Montarroyos. LP, Vinyl record album

Geraldo Vespar

New Breeze From Brazil
Capitol, 1968. Near Mint-
Mellow bossa guitar – in the tradition of Bonfa or Gilberto, but lacking the same sort of soul. Not bad, but kind of a "cash in on the big names" release by Capitol – although the record was originally recorded in Brazil, so it's at least got some sort of cred. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis Regina in London
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Almond Music Machine

Patent Pending
Deram, 1969. Very Good+
A stone groover from British multi-instrumentalist Johnny Almond – stepping out here on a range of instruments that includes tenor, alto, flute, organ, vibes, and mellotron! Like Almond's other session from the time, the set's got a tightly arranged groove that feels a lot like some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Buttercorn Lady
Limelight, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet! If you're surprised at the mix of players, and figure that they won't groove with Blakey's ... LP, Vinyl record album
