Thanks to Andreas Dünnewald, the author of the book: Brazilliance – Record Covers of Brazil (1952-1977), I am gradually nearing the 18+ tag for Parallel Realities. Yesterday he sent me this rarity wrapped in countless beautiful and not too heavily dressed ladies, fronted by Angela Maria or a lookalike of hers.
After hours of staring at the artwork, I also found time to listen to organ player Celso Murilo‘s debut album, recorded in 1961.
You may do the same. Above is the front cover and below are the compositions performed:
01. Boato (João Roberto Kelly)
02. Atire A Primeira Pedra (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
03. Murmúrio (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
04. Jarro da Saudade (Mirabeau / Daniel Barbosa / Geraldo Blota)
05. Samba Triste (Baden Powell / Billy Blanco)
06. Samba na Passarela (Luis Gonçalves / Nilton Valle)
07. Guarde A Sandália Dela (Germano Mathias / Sereno)
08. Volta (Djalma Ferreira / Luiz Bandeira)
09. Dizem Por Aí (Manoel da Conceição / Alberto Paz)
10. Fica Comigo (Luis Antônio)
11. A Fonte Secou (Monsueto / Tufic Lauar / Marcléo)
12. Zelão (Sérgio Ricardo)
Distracted, I almost forgot to mention the musicians:
Celso Murilo (Órgão, Piano)
Pedro e Gilberto (Caixeta)
Confused, I almost forgot to write the appropriate link:

Angela or not Angela, that is now the question.
MORE REALITIES by Brazilliance:
Some trivia unveiled to add some more realities:
Nine songs from this album were reissued on Conjunto Balambossa’s “Samba ao Vivo” (Coledisc CD012): Samba Triste, Boato, Volta, Murmúrio, Dizem Por Aí, Fica Comigo, Falsa Baiana, Fiz o Bobão and Zelão. The rest of “Samba ao Vivo” was compiled from Celso Murilo’s “Órgão e Ritmo” aka “Convida a Dançar” (1963, Moeda Quebrada, O Amor em Paz) and Fats Elpidio’s “Samba da Madrugada” (1962, Na Roda do Samba).
Five songs from this album, Samba Triste, Quem Manda na Minha Vida, Volta, Boato and Zelão, were also compiled on the uncredited album “Samba Exportação” (Itamaraty ITAM-7079, c. 1970) which also contains songs from Celso Murilo’s “Ritmos na Passarela” and “Ferias no Drink”
