Olhos Negros Vivo

LP (Item 969540) Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018 — Condition: Sealed

A contemporary set from Brazil, but one with a groove that feels like it was lifted right from the 70s – especially that period later in the decade when samba soul modes were coming into play with warmer boogie modes! The set's a live one, and features the strong lead vocals of Renato Gama with a very strong backing combo – great keyboards, funky rhythms, and a pair of female singers who really balance out the rougher edges of Renato's vocals nicely – making for a blend that almost reminds us of some of our favorite work by Emilio Santiago back in the day, especially some of his albums for Philips. Titles include "Jogo", "O Futuro", "Rita", "Vai Bem", "O Iludido", "Banzo", "O Saudoso Guardador De Reses", and "Comida De Comer Com A Mao". Also features a bonus 7" single – with older album tracks "Essa Preta E Treta" and "Engraxate", both by the group Nhocune Soul.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow vinyl pressing with bonus 7-inch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Cheganca

Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve!

Brazil salutes Mexico – in a rare little album from the legendary Tamba Trio!

Spectrum

Geracao Bendita
Todamerica (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint-
A really great bit of Brazilian rock – with a feel that's hard and heavy, but also has nice traces of pop, and which reminds us a lot of work by Peruvian group We All Together! The production is simple, but ambitious – with the vocals all flanged out in a way that sounds perfect next ... 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
Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the ...

French Cookin'
Argo, 1963. Near Mint-
A really great record from this deeply soulful tenorist – a player whose work was always part of larger groups in the postwar years, but who hardly ever got a chance to cut small sessions like this! The tunes include a number of French language classics, but taken in a 60s soul jazz style ... LP, Vinyl record album
