Bossa Nova, Balanco and Samba of the 1960s Get past the Girl from Ipanema and cocktail clichés and check out the music, musicians and cover art of classic Brazilian records. There are hundreds here for looking and listening.

Very great find, I'll bookmark this for my next Brazil record buying excursion.

This is awesome. Now I have something else to listen to besides the streams on this Afropop Worldwide page.

I like the Equipe label covers, as well as most of the sounds. Thanks.

Here's an ancient post of mine (which I promise now to tag) with a Jobim site and other Brazilian music links.

iamck, if you are going to Brasil record buying, the thing to look out for is warped vinyl, AFAIK.
If you are just going to buy records from Brasil, maybe not such a problem.
But you probably already knew this, if you read wax-poetics.
I have recently been listening to 'Os Lobos', some 60's psyche in a Brasilian stylee. Highly reccomended.

Record covers > CD covers for art.

Plus the artists on vinyl albums are clearly physically larger than those on CD, hence the better sound!

Nice find! Bookmarked the audio page for future record hunting reference.

Thank you! I know there is an oasis of audio taste here - I'm glad that I am not alone!

*Great* stuff! Thanks TS- I like this genre in the car- a bossa nova a day keeps the roadrage away.

Nice link.

Aside: Anyone else smile when they realized Adult Swim used Jobim's Water's of March in a Sealab 2021 promo?

Some of y'all might find this site useful, maybe even helpful...

Great link!

You might want to add tags, by the way.
