Sua Excelencia, O Samba-cancao (1957)

Odeon MODB 3062

An Odeon showcase:

01. Foi a noite  (A. C. Jobim / Newton Mendonça) – Sylvia Telles
02. Só Louco  (Dorival Caymmi) – Dorival Caymmi
03. Molambo  (Jayme Florence / Augusto Mesquita) – Roberto Luna
04. Não diga não  ((Tito Madi / Georges Henry) – Heleninha Silveira
05. Prece  (Alberto Ribeiro) – Dalva de Oliveira
06. Contando estrelas  (Alfredo Borba / Edson Borges) – Isaura Garcia
07. Brasa  (Lupicinio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins) – Orlando Silva
08. Siga  (Hélio Guimarães / Fernando Lobo) – Trio Irakitan 

The pleasant voice of Heleninha Silveira I have never heard before, so this encounter came as a pleasant surprise. Immediate research revealed 5 listed 78 rpm albums recorded in the period from 1955 to 1957.

Edson Mendes informed me in a second mail that three more of Heleninha‘s songs can be found on Youtube.

Why she has not continued her singing career is a mystery to me.
