A Revolucao

LP (Item 972874) Odeon (Brazil), 1963 — Condition: Poor

(Mono teal label pressing. NOTE – Vinyl has deep and jagged marks on both sides, plays with skips and crackles. Cover is still in decent shape however, but with some wear and small holes in the plastic outer sleeve.)

Poor

Like "Fair", we rarely list records in this condition, as they represent the extreme low end of spectrum. These records typically have multiple serious problems, and we offer them as "relics" or "objects" only — for those who want to at least have a copy of a record, even if it is not really worthy of play, perhaps for the cover alone. For these records, we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments.

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.

Maria Bethania

Mel
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Very Good
A gentler, more laidback album that some of Maria Bethania's more dramatic efforts from the early 70s – but still a pretty great little record, served up with a sense of poise and power that few of her contemporaries could match! Backings are arranged by Perinho Albuquerque, in a way that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album of hard bossa cuts – played by drummer Antonio Da Souza, aka Miltinho, aka Milton Banana, with backing by Oscar Castro Neves!

Tamba 4
Orfeon (Mexico), 1970. Very Good+
Groovy bossa gems from Tamba 4 – released in 1970 on Mexico's Orfeon label! This self-titled set is really kind of a rare footnote to the legendary couple of albums the group cut a bit earlier for A&M – but a wonderful one that's more geared towards uptempo bossa jazz than the ...

RVV (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good
Rare bossa from the Mexican scene of the 60s – played by a very hip quintet with Breno Sauer on vibes and Claudio Roditi on trumpet and vocals! The group's got a groove that extrapolates Brazilian rhythms nicely – a take on bossa nova that's a bit like some of the American work of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Raizes Da Mangueira

Raizes Da Mangueira
EMI (Brazil), 1973. Sealed
The title's an apt one, as the session's a musical tracing of the roots of the Mangueira sound – featuring rootsy samba work performed by a variety of singers that includes Jorge Zagaia, Xango, Jurandir, Sobrinho, and Babau Da Mangueira! Instrumentation is nice and spare – just a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes (1983)
A&M, 1983. Sealed
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath!

LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint-
An obscure little set from Maria Toledo – a Brazilian singer who's best known for her work with Luiz Bonfa – no surprise, since she was married to Luiz, and sung on a number of his best 60s albums!

Chic

C'est Chic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
A massive set from the legendary Chic – and a set that has the dancefloor combo coming down perfectly throughout! Riffing Nile Rodgers guitars really make the tunes cook – as does the superb production – and although the record played plenty in discos and radios of the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rounder, 1980. Near Mint-
A very nice session that actually has a bit of a soul jazz touch – with elements that are similar to Ra's Lanquidity set, a much sought-after spacey fusion classic! The band still plays fairly out, but the singing's a bit more soulful than usual, and the music has some funky vibes, guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album
