Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 - Look Around Look Around
Jazz Audiophile - LP SP 4137 Speakers Corner
Out Of Print 180gm HQ Stereo Reissue. LP Appears New, Unplayed. “Sergio Mendes Took A Deep Breath, Expanded His Sound To Include Strings Lavishly Arranged By The Young Dave Grusin And Dick Hazard, Went Further Into Brazil, And Out Came A Gorgeous Record Of Brasil '66 At The Peak Of Its Form. Here Mendes Released Himself From Any Reliance Upon Antonio Carlos Jobim And Rounded Up A Wealth Of Truly Great Material From Brazilian Fellow Travelers: Gilberto Gil's Jet-Propelled "Roda" And Joao Donato's Clever "The Frog," Dori Caymmi's Stunningly Beautiful "Like A Lover," Harold Lobo's Carnival-Esque "Tristeza," And Mendes Himself (The Haunting "So Many Stars" And The Title Track). Mendes Was Also Hip Enough To Include "With A Little Help From My Friends" From The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper LP. As Things Evolved, Though, The One Track That This Album Would Be Remembered For Is The Only Other Non-Brazilian Tune, Burt Bacharach's "The Look Of Love," In An Inventive, Grandiose Arrangement With A Simplified Bossa Beat. The Tune Just Laid There On The Album Until Mendes And Company Performed It On The Academy Awards Telecast In 1968. The Performance Was A Sonic Disaster, But No Matter; The Public Response Was Huge, A Single Was Released, And It Become A Monster, Number Four On The Pop Charts. So Much For The Reported Demise Of Bossa Nova; In Sergio Mendes' Assimilating, Reshaping Hands, Allied With Herb Alpert's Flawless Production, It Was Still A Gold Mine.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 - Equinox Equinox
Jazz Used - LP SP 4122 A&M
1967 Brown Label Stereo Original In Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “Equinox Continues The Scrumptiously Winning Sound That Sergio Mendes Cooked Up In The Mid-'60s, This Time A Bit More Fleshed Out With John Pisano's Guitar, A Slightly Thicker Texture, And Even An Imitation Sitar (This Was, After All, 1967). Again, The Mix Of American Pop Tunes Old And New And Brazilian Standards And Sleepers Is Impeccable (Although It Didn't Yield Any Substantial Hits), And The Treatments Are Smooth, Swinging, And Very Much To The Point. While Mendes Reaps A Predictable Harvest From Antonio Carlos Jobim -- He Was One Of The First To Discover And Record "Triste" And "Wave" -- He Also Likes To Explore The Work Of Other Outstanding Brazilian Writers Like Jorge Ben, Joao Gilberto, And Especially Edu Lobo (Whose "For Me," With Its Bright Flashes Of Combo Organ, Is One Of The Album's Highlights). Lani Hall's Star Was Just Rising At This Time, And It Is Her Cool, Clear Voice That Haunts The Memory Most Often. Like Its Predecessor, Equinox Is Exceedingly Brief In Duration, Yet Not A Motion Is Wasted.” Richard S. Ginell, All Music Guide.... more details
