Maria Thereza – Simplesmente Coração (1979)

A short time ago, Eduardo finished searching through his innumerable DVDs, found this LP and sent it to me…
Beautiful album, passionate and melancholic, with minimal instruments…
Beside this one and the album presented a few posts ago, Maria Thereza has recorded only 2 career albums: Novamente, Mecha Branca (1963) and Pra matar saudade (1976). Not to mention a compilation from the Série Colagem… All of them impossible to find on the net…
I am writing this in the hope that Santa Claus will, eventually, read it and make those albums available: Either by sending them to me or posting them on any other blog or site…
In the meantime, enjoy:

  1. Lembrete
  2. Convencido do Sete Sete Nove
  3. No Turbilhão do Encantamento
  4. Se Não For Amor
  5. Reencontro
  6. Jura Secreta
  7. Flutuando no Seu Amor
  8. Foi Assim
  9. Na Voz de Outra
  10. Falando Sério
  11. Alguém Me Disse
  12. Desperto Rainha

Maria Thereza – Mecha Branca (1959)

During a late night chat with Eduardo, a friend from Sao Paolo who is a great expert on brazilian music (and owner of a collection of innumerable recordings), he mentioned Maria Thereza (or Mecha Branca, an artistic name she earned because of a strain of white hair) and claimed that, knowing my musical taste, he is confident that I will like her the moment I hear her singing.
Eta dor de cotovelo music, a singer in nightclubs, unknown to me…
Irresistible challenge…
Could not wait for Eduardo to search through his collection…
I plunged into the dephts of the net first thing in the morning and despite the fact that no blog or site had nothing to offer, I had luck to find this one recording thanks to sharemusicnotguns.
Ladies and gentlemen, this recording is a total high, I can’t force myself to stop the player: it is spinning it over and over.
Thanks to Eduardo, thanks to sharemusicnotguns, here it is:
  1. Mecha Branca
  2. Trying
  3. A Noite do meu Bem
