Offered for sale is an original red vinyl Japanese pressing of Sylvia Telles Sings The Wonderful Songs Of Antonio Carlos Jobim by Sylvia Telles, including the original obi.
This album features a different cover from the U.S. release, and instead uses the same cover as her previous LP, The Face I Love. While it looks like The Face I Love, it’s actually a completely different album.
About this copy: This copy of Sylvia Telles Sings The Wonderful Songs Of Antonio Carlos Jobim is an original 1967 pressing on the Kapp label, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.
The cover is VG++, with trace corner wear and a bit of wear along the flap on the bottom of the back cover. It’s very close to M-.
The obi is VG+, with no tears, but a few minor wrinkles and some foxing on the back. The “hojyuhyo,” or reorder tag, is still attached.
The lyric insert is VG+ with no tears but with moderate foxing.
The red vinyl disc is M- and looks unplayed. Beautiful disc!
A gorgeous copy of a rare (and terrific!) Bossa Nova LP and one that would be very hard to upgrade.
Background: Released in 1966, Sylvia Telles Sings The Wonderful Songs Of Antonio Carlos Jobim was the final album by the Brazilian singer, who died in a car accident not long after the album was released.
The album was released in the United States with a rather nondescript cover, but in Japan, it was released with the same cover as Telles’ previous album, The Face I Love.
Sylvia Telles devoted much of her career to interpreting the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim; in fact, more than half the songs she did on record were Jobim covers. Here’s an entire album of them, recorded in the mid-’60s, not long before her premature death in a car accident. Of course, by this time Jobim was far more famous in the northern hemisphere than he’d been when Telles first cut Jobim material in the mid-’50s. Indications are that perhaps Telles was eyeing the international market as well, since seven of the twelve songs were sung in English (though the remainder were sung in Portuguese). Regardless of what tongue she’s using, it’s sumptuously produced mid-’60s bossa nova, delivered well whether in her native language or in English (which she sings fluently).
