Lua De Mel Como O Diabo Gosta

LP (Item 9774) RCA (Brazil), 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-
One of Gal Costa's mellow mainstream sides from the 80s – hardly the sort of work you might have imagined during the heady Tropicalia years, yet still very much the top of the heap for MPB at the time! Gal's got a new sort of sophistication here – a depth that really comes through on the ballads, in ways that remind us of late 70s work from Elis Regina – and although the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, it's still got a pretty nice feel overall – never too clunky or commercial. Arrangements are by Lincoln Olivetti, Ricardo Cristaldi, Djavan, and Guto Graca Mello – who produced the set – and titles include a nice version of Joyce's "Todos Os Instrumentos", plus "Tenda", "Arara", "Me Faz Bem", "O Vento", and a Brazilian version of "Here, There, & Everywhere", entitled "Viver E Reviver".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Gal Costa

Minha Voz
Polygram (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+
Great stuff from Gal – even if the record is a lot smoother than her earlier work! The record's got a light jazzy style – like a lot of Gal's other work from the time – but this actually works quite well for her lovely voice, especially on the more intimate numbers. Titles ...

Philips (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A very nicely packaged 2LP set that brings together some of Gal Costa's best work for Philips! The set spans her Tropicalia years, and moves into the 70s as Gal developed a style that was more sophisticated, and which eventually drew her more into the mainstream. Titles include "London ...

Maria Creuza

Meia Noite
RCA (Brazil), 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
A sweetly mellow album from singer Maria Creuza – recorded with a bit more of a modern feel than some of her previous albums for RCA, less bossa touches, and a more romantic sound overall – one that has her vocals drifting over serious arrangements that have kind of a sad and late night ...

Eu Disse Adeus
RCA (Brazil), 1973. Very Good+
One of the more sophisticated albums recorded by Brazilian singer Maria Crueza – with a sound that moves way past her earlier bossa recordings, working in a mode that's similar to some of the more elaborate MPB recordings of the late 70s. Arrangements are by Ivan Paulo, Geraldo Vespar, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Carlos & Jocafi

RCA (Brazil), 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Fantastic 70s material by this unique Brazilian combo! The sound is perhaps a bit less funky than some of their other records, but the songwriting is excellent, and the production is top notch – in a way that opens up the voices and gives the record a lot more soul than usual. Filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
