Meia Noite No Meia-Noite – Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto / Cópia e Seu Conjunto (1958)

Todamérica LPP-TA-312

The absolute highlight (from my point of view) of the newest package which arrived today from Pedro & 300 discos is the long searched for ultra-rarity by Moacyr Silva and Nicolino Cópia alias Copinha: Meia Noite No Meia-Noite recorded back in 1958, featured on my Santa Claus list two times (once under each artist’s name).

Similar atmosphere to the one year before released 10 Inch by Luiz Bandeira Cantando No Meia Noite do Copacabana Palace and the one year later released Prelúdio de Amor by Nicolino Cópia, the masterpiece presented today features Luiz Bandeira (on one track, backed by Moacyr Silva) and Cláudia Barroso (on one track backed by Nicolino Cópia)

The side one of the album, performed by Moacyr Silva, as well as the side two by Nicolino Cópia are included uninterrupted, as well as split into separate tracks:


01. My Funny Valentine (Richard Rodgers / Lorenz Hart)
      Intérprete: Moacyr Silva

02. Portrait Of Jennie  (J. R. Robison / G. Burdge)
      Intérprete: Moacyr Silva

03. Tangerine (Johnny Mercer / Victor Schertzinger)
      Intérprete: Moacyr Silva

04. Recado de Olinda (Luiz Bandeira)
      Intérprete: Moacyr Silva
      Participação: Luiz Bandeira

05. Encontrei Minha Amada (Arlindo Marques Júnior / Roberto Roberti) 
       Intérprete: Moacyr Silva

06. O Apito no Samba (Luiz Bandeira / Luis Antônio)
      Intérprete: Moacyr Silva 


07. Unforgettable (Irving Gordon)
      Intérprete: Copinha

08. Believe In Love (Paul Francis Webster / H. Gietz)
      Intérprete: Copinha

09. What Is This Thing Called Love  (Cole Porter)
      Intérprete: Copinha

10. Não Adianta Chorar (Eduardo Patané / Almeida Rego)
      Intérprete: Copinha
      Participação: Cláudia Barroso

11. Flamengo (Bonfíglio de Oliveira)
      Intérprete: Copinha

12. Pé no Jacá (Hélio Marinho)
      Intérprete: Copinha

Probably you have rightly guessed that I am not able to restrain myself from pointing out that track 10 Não Adianta Chorar sung by Cláudia Barroso is spectacular and makes it even more difficult for me to find a logical answer why Cláudia has not continued her collaboration with Copinha.
