Norma Bengel – Mademoiselle B.B. – Compacto Promo (1959, a parallel reality)

Parallel Realities Studio 2013

While searching parallel realities for something else, I found something else:

A promotional compacto, containing a track sung by Norma Bengel for the Movie O Homem do Sputnik, from 1959, directed by Carlos Manga and featuring (among others):

Oscarito as Anastácio
Cyll Farney as Nelson or Jacinto
Zezé Macedo as Cleci
Norma Bengel as B.B.
Jô Soares as The american spy

A curiosity about this compacto caught my attention: Despite being released in 1959 it had the same type of logo design as a 10 Inch found in a very distant and different parallel reality 5 years later (1964), called The Six Tracks.

The promo compacto has only one track on side A while the side B is empty.
This one track, Mademoiselle B.B. is undefined by genre, someplace between cabaret music and parody, both spoken and sung by Norma Bengel in French and Portuguese…

But, maybe the best and most pleasant way to define it yourself is by simply listening to Norma as B.B:

Lado A: Mademoiselle B.B. (Bruno Marnet) – 3:32
