Raizes Da Mangueira

LP (Item 994848) EMI (Brazil), 1973 — Condition: Sealed

The title's an apt one, as the session's a musical tracing of the roots of the Mangueira sound – featuring rootsy samba work performed by a variety of singers that includes Jorge Zagaia, Xango, Jurandir, Sobrinho, and Babau Da Mangueira! Instrumentation is nice and spare – just a bit of cavaquinho, bandolim, and percussion, plus backing vocals – and titles include "Rio Antigo", "Alegria", "Itapoan", "Mangueira", "Cantigo A Natureza", and "Jequitiba Do Samba".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Shrinkwrap is lightly shopworn and is mostly cracked near the opening, but still intact. Cover is lightly bent at the edges.)

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.

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

Fool On The Hill
A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached!

Buddah, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold
Easily one of the greatest records that Brazilian percussionist Airto ever recorded – a stunning blend roots and jazzy currents, and a set that follows strongly off his work in the group Quarteto Novo!

Flora Purim

That's What She Said
Milestone, 1978. Very Good
One of Flora Purim's last albums for Milestone – and much less of a straight Brazilian fusion session than some of her other records – more in the soul style she'd explore in years to come! Flora's singing in English a bit more than before, and some of the tunes have a nice dose of ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1970. Very Good
A wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don ... LP, Vinyl record album
