Thanks to Pedro reading a comment by Frank-Oliver under the particular post, I am able to present the complete LP now.

More about balanço in general and the music on this LP can be read on the back cover text written by Haroldo Barbosa, the producer of this masterpiece.

CORRECTION by Edson Mendes:
Here’s just one correction to be made: Luiz Reis is the piano player and the accordion is played (according to the text in the back cover) “by an encyclopedic musician, easily identifiable, however silent for contractual reasons”. I guess he is Chiquinho do Acordeon, but I’m not sure…

QUESTION by Frank-Oliver:
Who are the singers on this album?

Who is the lady on the front cover?
