Wilson Simonal

LP (Item 986368) Odeon (Mexico), Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Killer work from Wilson Simonal – a singer who brought plenty of soul to his samba! Simonal's got a groove that's somewhere in the territory of early work by Jorge Ben – upbeat, lively, and filled with joy – lots of very groovy rhythms that draw from samba roots, but inflect the sound more towards the hipper styles of late 60s Brazil. Backings are often full, with a sweet touch of jazz – a great blend that works perfectly with Wilson's amazing vocals! Titles include "Pais Tropical", "Mustang Cor De Sange", "Vesti Azul", "Zazueira", "Silva Lenheira", and "Agora E Cinza".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(60s Mexican pressing. Cover has some light wear, but this is a great copy 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.
