Offered for sale is an original Japanese red vinyl pressing of the various artist compilation LP Bossa Nova, including the original obi.

Artists include Laurindo Almeida, Wanda De Sah, Sergio Mendes, and George Shearing.

About this copy: This copy of Bossa Nova is a 1970 Japanese pressing on the Capitol label, pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl.

The gatefold cover is VG, with what appears to be a stain on the foil-covered surface.  The obi is VG, with a repaired tear at the bottom edge.  The “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) has been removed.

This LP was issued without an insert.

The red vinyl disc is VG+ on side one with a couple of light scuffs.  Side two is VG, with slightly heavier scuffing, but no deep scratches.  It’s a fairly clean disc that plays well.

A nice copy of a scarce (and very good) Bossa Nova sampler.
