Description
All of our records are play graded and come in a protective outer-sleeve. If you have any questions, please ask.

Catalog Number: SP-4197

CONDITION DETAILS
Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Cover looks good; some scuffing (front/back); area of surface abrasion on front at center bottom (see photo). Inner sleeve is original (generic white); number written in one corner. Spine is easy-to-read with wear. Little shelf-wear along top edge, more wear along bottom edge. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

ABOUT THE RECORD
Crystal Illusions, by Sérgio Mendes and Brasil '66, spawned three singles: (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay, You Stepped out of a Dream. and Pretty World. The sound and band that served Sergio Mendes well on Fool on the Hill remain intact on Crystal Illusions, with few modifications. Dave Grusin is right there with a lush, haunting orchestral chart when needed; Lani Hall is thrust further into the vocal spotlight, as cool and alluring as ever in Portuguese or English. Mendes remained on the lookout for fresh Brazilian tunes, and he came up with a coup, one of the earliest covers of a Milton Nascimento tune to reach North America, Vera Cruz (with Hall's English lyrics, it became Empty Faces), as well as Dori Caymmi's Dois Dias. The two singles, the perky Pretty World and sax-streaked cover of Otis Redding's The Dock of the Bay, are nice slices of Mendes pop.
