Geracao Bendita

LP (Item 973519) Todamerica (Brazil), 1971 — Condition: 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 to the compressed guitars on the set – almost like the ones you'd hear on a great album by Love from the late 60s. Titles include "15 Years Old", "On My Mind", "Tema De Amor", "Quiabos", "Mother Nature", and "Maria Imaculada".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent reissue.)

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.

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Ye-Me-Le
A&M, 1969. Very Good+
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano Veloso

Velo
Philips (Brazil), 1984. Very Good+
An LP from the mid 80's, recorded with the group Banda Nova. The record's definitely more of a rock record than most of his stuff, and it includes a remake of "Nine Out Of Ten", plus "O Homem Velho", "Comeu", "Podres Poderes", "Pulsar", and "Gr ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes

Brasil 86
A&M, 1986. Sealed
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

Sergio Mendes (1983)
A&M, 1983. Near Mint-
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath! The sound of the set is very much in the best mainstream soul modes of the time – never too electric overall, but put together with a nicely warm groove that continues the legacy of ...

Equipe/Seven Seas (Japan), 1973. Near Mint-
A rare Brazilian album from the legendary keyboardist Deodato – recorded right around the same time as his classic CTI albums Prelude and Deodato 2 – but much more obscure! This set's got a similar electric vibe, but is much more compact – with maybe more organ than Rhodes, on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ed Lincoln

A Volta
Musidisc (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good
Stunning! This is a beautiful mid-60s album bossa and samba organ grooves, played by the great Ed Lincoln, one of Brazil's best organ players ever. Unlike Walter Wanderley, Lincoln's got a sound and a style that's pretty darn crazy, and which is filled with all sort of pyrotechnics and tricks on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lust For Life
RCA, 1977. Near Mint-
Iggy Pop may have left The Stooges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s! The set was produced by David Bowie, who also plays piano on the set – and has Carlos Alamar adding in some guitar – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild & Crazy Guy
Warner, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
Steve Martin at the height of his powers – when he was hitting on all burners with his TV specials, nightclub appearances, and radio airplay.
