O Ouro Do Po Da Estrada

LP (Item 986843) Polysom (Brazil), 2019 — Condition: Sealed

Brazilian singer Elba Ramalho is still going strong – and maybe sounding better than ever, partly due to a matured quality in her vocals – which makes things sometimes sound deeper than in the early years! The style here is a mix of older forro elements with more contemporary touches – accordion a bit in the background on more numbers, surrounded by electric elements that emphasize some of the more soulful currents in the music – while the lady herself stands strongly in the spotlight. The set features guest appearances by Ney Matogrosso and Roberta Sa – and titles include "Girassol", "Calcanhar", "Na Areia", "Princesa Domeu Lugar", "Oxente", "Setudo Pode Acontecer", and "O Mundo".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
Quite different from Flora's earlier work, but in a way that we find quite compelling!

Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1970s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great work from two of Brazil's greatest modernists! Although the cover makes it look like they're playing together on the album, the record features a side apiece of work by each composer/musician.

Dreams Are Real
Milestone, 1984. Very Good+
Soaring keyboard work from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth – done with a sound that's slightly smooth – keyboards that show a bit more of a mid 80s sound, but still recorded with the sense of soul and space that makes Bertrami so great!

Straight Ahead
RCA, 1974. Very Good
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely!
