Maestro Pachequinho is well known to frequent travellers through time and across this particular parallel reality, but with the Os Copa 4 the situation is not quite clear, as so far here were featured: Os Copa 5, Os Copa 7, Os Copa Vips and as tonight’s Os Copa: Os Copa 4, consisting of Ivan Paulo, Cosme Teixeira, Vera Ivete and Rildo Hora.
Don’t let confusion spoil the listening pleasure while enjoying both sides of this album divided into:
Lado A – com o conjunto vocal Os Copa 4 (Ivan Paulo, Cosme Teixeira, Vera Ivete e Rildo Hora) e acompanhamento de Pachequinho e Sua Orquestra:

Winkler / F. Rauch) Maestro Pachequinho
I must confess that I had no idea about the existence of cavaquinho player Waldir Silva, despite his quite large 12 career albums counting discography, until I threw a look into the latest package and fished out of it his (as I later found out) second album recorded in 1964.
The back cover fortunately provides information about Waldir Silva (up to 1964, of course) as well as a comparison with Waldir de Azevedo, written by the great Dalton Vogeler.
I recommend reading the back cover text and listening to his music:
01. S.O.S. (Waldir Silva / Manoel Santiago) 02. Samba do Ba-da-tu-blim (José Bezerra / Pepe) 03. Um Mambo Em Renascença (Waldir Silva / Juraci Lucena) 04. Palomita Blanca (A. Aieta / F. G. Gimenez) 05. O Sapo (Jaime Silva / Neusa Teixeira) 06. Seja Lá o Que Deus Quiser (Lamartine Babo) 07. Aos Heróis do Fogo (Waldir Silva) 08. Buraco de Tatu (Jair Silva / Jadir Ambrósio) 09. Noite de Saudade (Joel Honorato / Silva Borges) 10. Bigorrilho (Sebastião Gomes / Paquito / Romeu Gentil) 11. Make Haste My Love (Ulpio Minucci / Roy Jordan) 12. Fita Meus Olhos (Peterpan)
Carlos Lacerda was an important and controversial Brazilian politician in the 50’s and 60’s (he was the governor of the Guanabara State, that was created when the Brazilian capital was transferred to Brasilia in 1960, and now doesn’t exist anymore)., This “other Carlos Lacerda” (the musician) is presented here as the “Governador do teclado“, for sure picked up on the popularity of the real governor!
As far as I know, this masterpiece by José Menezes has not been presented on the net before, except that it’s title was written down quite some time ago in my Santa Claus list.
Thanks to Pedro &300discosit is finally possible to cool down, relax, listen, dance or make love synchronized to the rhythm of:
01. Atire A Primeira Pedra (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago) 02. All My Tomorrows (Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen) 03. Devoção (Ramalho Neto) 04. Bossa Nova Nº 2 (José Menezes / Alberto Paz) 05.

Contrapontando (José Menezes) AT THE BALALAIKA
The national part of the soundtrack for the TV series Os Imigrantes, which, as you have guessed, I have not watched on TV.
But the title says it all, so does the track list, especially if you listen to the tracks:

Tonight we have a Pedro transfer of an album presented on Loronix several years ago. As you might have guessed, instead of writing anything about it, I will point to Órfãos do Loronix where Zecalouro‘s text is reprinted.
Of course, I will not fail to publish the track list:
01. Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar) 02. Eu E A Brisa (Johnny Alf) 03. Desencontro (Chico Buarque) 04. Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico) 05. Viola Enluarada (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sérgio Valle) 06. Por Que (Geraldo Vespar / Mário Telles) Bourrê (Geraldo Vandré) 07. Corcovado (Tom Jobim) 08. Até Segunda-Feira (Chico Buarque) 09.

The first time I heard Roberto Coura play organ was about half a year ago and it was altogether great (altogether = Maristela + Roberto Coura + Conjunto). Efforts to find more by him were fruitless, but I managed to spot the information about the existence of one more career album: Melodias Imortais, on which he performs classical tracks.
The album presented today is one I have not even found randomly mentioned. Here he is also performing classical music, composed by Beethoven, Grieg, Dvorak and several other equally suspicious characters.
In short: A rarity!
The compositions are:
01. Allegro (Hynd) 02. Serenata (Toselli) 03. Gavothe Stephanie (Czibulka) 04. Humoresque (Dvorak) 05. Marcha Triunfal (Grieg) 06. Meditação (Massenet) 07. Narcisus (Nevin) 08. Melodia Em Fá (Rubinstein) 09. Minueto Em Sol (Beethoven) 10. Poema (Fibich) 11. Canção da Índia (Korsakov) 12. Serenata (Schubert)
Fiery sounds and rhythms, quite well visualized by the conception and colours of the front cover, performed by Niquinho, one of the most popular newcomers on Parallel Realities (I can also clearly visualize Stu‘s facial expression while he is pressing the download link).
No sleep while these tracks are playing:
01. Pra Machucar Meu Coração (Ary Barroso) 02. Zigue Zague (Niquinho) 03. Caçulinha (Luymi Fernando / A. Bourget) 04. Parece, Mas Não É (Helinho) 05. Subindo São Carlos (Jorge Wanderley / Sidney Machado) 06. Cenira (Niquinho / Cicinato Santos) 07. Deixa Pra Mim (Jair do Pandeiro / Edson Mello) 08. Não Sou Graúna Não (Niquinho) 09. O Romance (Ormindo Fontes “Toco Preto” / Leonardo Alves) 10. Que Fazer (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Jota Santos) 11. Sambando no Estácio (Amaury Nunes / Othon Russo) 12. Shirley (Amaury Nunes / João Lopes Vieira)
Maestro Ruy Rey was featured on Parallel Realities with one career album and participating in several Carnaval recordings which you all may look up with just one CLICK. In the newest Pedro &300discospackage I found another one of his career albums, noted on my Santa Claus list.
So here it is and so is the list of compositions he is performing with his orchestra:
01. Nossos Momentos (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa) 02. Samba Bom (Emílio Batista / Ruy Rey) 03. I’m Yours (R. Mellin) 04. Morena Linda (Dunga / Paulo Villara) 05. Gin-kana (Emílio Batista / Ruy Rey) 06. Quiereme Amame (Paulo Villara / Ruy Rey) 07. Greenfields (Terry Gilkyson / Richard Deher / Frank Miller) 08. Pra Que (Emílio Batista / Ruy Rey) 09. Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”) 10. Palo Bonito (Ricardo Rico) 11. Tudo É Ilusão (Aníbal da Silva / Eden Silva / Tufic Lauar) 12. Ansiedad (José Enrique Sarabia Rodriguez)
Another surprising find on one of the Belgrade flea markets by my friend Aktivista: A compacto duplo from 1962 by Maestro Oswaldo Borba released in former Jugoslavija by PGP Belgrade as a licence from Philips.
The compositions performed are:
01. Brasiliana Nº 1 (Astor Silva) 02. Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
03. Samba da Minha Terra (Dorival Caymmi) 04. Menina Moça (Luis Antônio)
Orquestra sob a direção de Oswaldo Borba Arranjos de Astor Silva
Gustavo Carvalho better known as Maestro Guaraná is in charge of the direction and arrangements on this (only?) album by the Bandinha do Jujuba. About this release and the compositions, the back cover provides a long (unsigned) text, but as happens so often, does credit the newest hi-fi recording possibilities of the Polydor studio, but does not mention the names of the participants, except for Maestro Guaraná,
Enjoy the Tuba do Jujuba as well as the other 11 tracks:
01. A Tuba do Jujuba (Alcebiades Nogueira) Maxixe 02. Os Rouxinóis (Lamartine Babo) Marcha-Rancho 03. Aurora (Zéquinha de Abreu) Valsa 04. Casar não é Casaca (Zéquinha de Abreu / Marquez de Ripafloxa) Maxixe 05. Margarida (Guaraná) Polka 06. Néga No Fogão (J. L. Moraes (Caninha) Maxixe 07. Rosinha (J. L. Moraes (Caninha) Maxixe 08. A Jardineira (Benedito Lacerda / Humberto Pôrto) Marcha 09. Saudade (Pixinguinha / J. Cascata) Marcha-Rancho 10. Pic Nic Trágico (Germano Benecase / Gomes de Almeida) Valsa 11. Recordando Os Velhos Tempos (Guaraná) Chôro 12. Miracema Cidade (Alberto Gomes Pessanha) Dobrado
Maestro Renato de Oliveira for the first time under his real name on Parallel Realities with an, as far as I know, unlisted career album, which is, judging by the LP number released in 1963 or eventually in 1964. The cover artwork will, maybe, look familiar to you, as already another album recorded for Philips that has been posted here a short time ago, has a similar cover done by the same designer.
Renato de Oliveira‘s career is split into, at least, two separate styles: The first is the famous Maestro, burdened with the obligation to record music that will boost his reputation of an artist and musical innovator, and the second as his relaxed alter ego, Cid Gray, performing para dançar music, without any artistic pretentiousness and avant-garde urge.
Which one of the two personalities residing in one person is the artist and which one the entertainer is a matter of idividual decision of the listener and can be formed and expressed according to taste and without any explanation.
Personally I am sceptic of artistic goals, as I believe that art can only come as the result of playing and composing simply for fun and joy.
This album we have in front of us is something third, performed by a combination of Renato de Oliveira, Cid Gray and a mysterious third element…

About Anjos do Sol , a vocal & instrumental group presented today with their first and only (?) album, I know nothing more than can be judged by looking on the front cover, as the back cover gives no more details than the track listing. If someone travelling through this parallel reality has any information about them, I’ll be happy to edit this post accordingly.

Lucinha Lins with her first album, for the first time on Parallel Realities, on two tracks accompanied by Cláudio Tovar. About Lucinha I do not know much, except that she has recorded only several albums. The compositions on this one presented tonight are mostly by the tandem Ivan Lins / Vítor Martins so guessing by the family name Lins, there is a possibility that Ivan might be her husband.
