About this copy: This copy of Brasil ’65 is a 1967 Japanese pressing on the Capitol label, pressed in “Everclean” red vinyl.

While this album was originally issued in 1965 in the U.S., the album was not released in Japan until 1967.

The cover is VG++ and close to M- with a small crease near the right hand edge.  The obi is M-.  The “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag), is still attached.

This LP was issued without a lyric insert.

The original envelope-style inner sleeve is VG++ with a few minor wrinkles.

The red vinyl disc is VG++ and close to M-, with a couple of faint scuffs on each side.  The album has clearly had very little play.

A nice copy of a terrific album that is rarely found complete.

Background: Released in 1965, Brasil ’65 was the seventh album by Sergio Mendes, though singer Wanda de Sah is featured more prominently on the cover. gave Brasil ’65 a 4 star review:

In 1965, Sergio Mendes and his trio conducted their first out-of-Brazil experiment: They recorded in L.A. for the first time in what proved to be their first major move into the U.S. market and their embrace of the new bossa nova sound. Accompanying the Mendes band were then-great vocalist Wanda de Sah and guitarist Rosinha de Valenca. This is deeply swinging bossa; it is crisp and pops out at the listener in every conceivable way. It features exotic and pioneering rhythmic work, smooth accessibility, and sophisticated melodies, many of which were written by the hottest talents in Brazil…. This stands with Mendes’ best work from Brazil and is truly one of his American highlights.
