Silvio Caldas

LP (Item 977777) Premier (Brazil), Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A collection of earlier material on the RGE label – with tracks that include "Balalaika", "Katia", "Fado Das Maos", "Samambaia Na Varanda", "Velhos Carnavais", "Paciencia", and "Homenagem".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover is missing the plastic wrap, but is great overall.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Juarez & His Orchestra

Bossa Nova Brasil
ABC, 1962. Very Good+
A gem of a record from the early 60s – a freewheeling set of bossa jazz, played by the combo of tenor saxophonist Juarez! There's a fluid, open groove to the record that's mighty nice – really romping rhythms that set fire to the tenor of Juarez right from the start – as he moves ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

Rain Forest
Verve, 1966. Near Mint-
An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Stunning work by one of the greatest bossa combos of the 60s – and one of their few albums in the US! The tracks were originally recorded in Brazil for RGE, and have that crackling solid bossa style that rarely showed up so well in American studio sides of the time. The album features the ...

Sergio Mendes

Pele
Atlantic, 1977. Near Mint-
Sergio Mendes' score to this film starring Pele from the height of his career. The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is nice and Braziliany, with some good electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberto Nascimento

Roberto Nascimento
Tapecar (Brazil), 1975. Near Mint-
A wonderful little album – sweet jazzy MPB from Roberto Nascimento, a lost record that we're very happy got reissued! We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ed Lincoln

Ed Lincoln
Musidisc, Mid 60s. Very Good
Next to Walter Wanderley, Ed Lincoln was probably the other great Brazilian organ player. We think he's better than Walt, and a lot more creative. Why? Well, check out the cool jazzy groovers on here like "O Ganso", "Balanco Azul", and the fantastic cut "Cochise", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Simonal

Wilson Simonal (3LP set)
Odeon (Mexico), Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 3LPs
A very cool 3LP set – filled with some of the best early tracks by Wilson Simonal – those jaunty, jazzy, samba funky tunes we love so much! Titles include "Zazueira", "Pails Tropical", "Meia Volta", "Voce Abusou", "Telefone", and lots ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Ye-Me-Le
A&M, 1969. Near Mint-
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

Paulinho Da Costa

Agora
Pablo, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
A tasty session of west coast Brazilian grooves – cut by the great percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, with a group that includes Claudio Slon, Larry Williams, and Lee Ritenour. The record's got a very nice breezy feel – with a sound that's similar to some of the Fantasy Brazilian LPs of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1988. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Sensation

Sad Sweet Dreamer
Pye, 1975. Near Mint-
Great stuff from this short-lived UK soul group – and a record that includes the monster title cut "Sad Sweet Dreamer". The record's filled with other great harmony soul tracks, and it's hard to believe it was recorded in the UK, because it sounds much more like an East Coast soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Scott

Lonely Man
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
An excellent album of uptown soul from Freddie – recorded after his work for Colpix, with arrangements by Belford Hendricks and Garry Sherman, in a sweet 60s New York mode! Freddie's vocals are great – much more mature than before, with a mixture of deep and sophisticated soul that ... LP, Vinyl record album
