LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

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 interesting array of songs! There's a bit less of the pop/cover style than before, and a bit more of a nod towards the hipper side of Brazilian music – especially the modernists of the bossa nova generation. Brazilian tunes include versions of "Constant Rain", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Bim Bom", and "Wave" – and there's also a few nice English numbers, like their hit version of "Night & Day", and a great reading of "Watch What Happens"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label stereo pressing.)

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.

Paramount/Gamma (Mexico), 1971. Very Good+
A cool change in the style of guitarist Bola Sete – a shift from the mellower, bossa-inflected styles of his 60s work on Fantasy Records – and a jauntier set of grooves overall! The instrumentation here is still mostly small combo – Bola's acoustic guitar with bass, drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
A classic early set of tracks by the Brazilian guitar genius Luiz Bonfa, filled with the lightness and breeziness that made his playing a huge inspiration for the Bossa Nova movement. Originally recorded in Rio by the Odeon label, with some orchestrations behind him, but they're mostly spare and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cipo & His Authentic Rhythm Group

Brazilian Beat
London (Brazil), 1965. Very Good+
Very nice album of hard Batucada tracks, recorded for London Records in Brazil, and with a similar hard feel to the label's classic Meirelles LPs from the time. Cipo's group has a more unusual sound than most, and if the picture of the frying pan on the cover with the drums and shakers can be ... 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 ...

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

Billie Holiday

God Bless The Child
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A classic 2LP collection of Billie's older work for Columbia – early sides produced by John Hammond in the late 30s and early 40s. Titles include "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie", "Am I Blue", "God Bless The Child", "Mandy Is Two", "It's The Same Old ... LP, Vinyl record album

The performance has Tony singing with both the trio of Ralph Sharon, and a larger orchestra – making for a good blend of the styles he'd been working on his early albums for Columbia! LP, Vinyl record album
