Wilson Simonal

LP (Item 986368) Odeon (Mexico), Early 70s — 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.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

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.

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.

EMI/Odeon (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good+
Great early work from Joao Gilberto – pulled from his earlier Odeon sides, and featuring many tracks that never got a proper issue in the US! As the title points out, the set's a bunch of Jobim tracks – and titles include "Desafinado", "Discussao", "So Em Teus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Geraldo Vandre

Canto Geral
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good
We love this album! This is the best record ever by Geraldo Vandre – one of the most important voices in MPB in the pre-Tropicalia years, working here in a sublime mix of styles that foreshadows some of the best Brazilian styles of the 70s. Vandre's songs are incredibly dark – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elza Soares & Miltinho

Elza Miltinho E Samba
Odeon (Brazil), 1967. Very Good
The first pairing of Elza Soares and Miltinho is a delight throughout – a set that follows on the Brazilian duet style of the time, but seems to handle things with even more charm and flair throughout – never just forcing the two singers together in the company of a tune, but really ...

Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Very Good+
A pretty cool record from singer Taiguara – an artist who normally worked in more romantic pop formats in Brazil, but who here has caught a bit of the groovy sound that was showing up on some of the excellent Odeon albums at the time. Part of this is thanks to Gaya, who handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Farney & Claudette Soares

Tudo Isto E Amor
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Mid 70s and mellow work from two legendary Brazilian vocalists – the great Dick Farney and the lovely Claudette Soares, singing here in a set of duets that include a number of classic Brazilian tunes set to lush arrangements. The sound is very classic – kind of a 70s take on an older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

O Sucesso E Samba
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
Great stuff from Walter Wanderley – and a refreshing change from his work on Verve! The record's dated 1968, but we're kind of guessing that the tracks date from earlier years – although we're not sure. Most of the material's as sophisticated as anything Walter was cutting in the US ... LP, Vinyl record album

Original pressing of this recording of music from the 3rd Festival of MPB in Sao Paulo in 1967. The LP was recorded in the TV Record studio in Sao Paulo – and it's got loads of great stuff, like "Roda Viva" by MPB4, "Bom Dia" and "Dada Maria" by Gal Costa, " ... LP, Vinyl record album
RGE (Brazil), 1967. Near Mint-
Pure genius from a young Chico Buarque – simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
