Messias Interpreta Bacharach – The Sound of Bacharach (1969)

RCA Victor BBL 1490

The list of violão and guitar player Messias‘ albums on Memoria Musical counts only three out of which the one presented here today is the third. A check on Órfãos do Loronix reveals that he has recorded two more: One with Mario Castro Neves released in 1967 and another one as member of Brasil 4 Ever released in 1980

Here he is, performing (as the title clearly indicates) compositions by Burt Bacharach:

01. This Guy’s In Love With You (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
02. A House Is Not A Home (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
03. I Say A Little Prayer (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
04. Close To You (They Long To Be) (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
05. What The World Needs Now Is Love (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
06. The Beginning Of Loneliness (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
07. The Look Of Love (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
08. Alfie (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
09. The Windows Of The World (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
10. Who Is Gonna Love Me (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
11. Promises Promises (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
12. Do You Know The Way To San Jose (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)

Messias E A Musica de Chico Buarque de Hollanda (1967)

RCA Victor BBL 1408

The front cover of the first career album by Messias who is presented for the first time on Parallel Realities, absolutely explains all there is to explain. Besides, on the back cover is a re-print of a handwritten text by Chico Buarque which answers eventual questions remaining after the analysis of the front cover.
I will just add that Messias has recorded at least two more Lps during the next two years, one with compositions by Jobim and the other with compositions by Burt Bacharach.

Chico‘s songs are:

01. Tem Mais Samba (Chico Buarque)
02. A Banda (Chico Buarque)
03. A Rita (Chico Buarque)
04. Madalena Foi Pro Mar (Chico Buarque)
05. Juca (Chico Buarque)
06. Olê, Olá (Chico Buarque)
07. Noite dos Mascarados (Chico Buarque)
08. Você Não Ouviu (Chico Buarque)
09. Sonho de Um Carnaval (Chico Buarque)
10. Será Que Cristina Volta (Chico Buarque)
11. Meu Refrão (Chico Buarque)
12. Amanhã Ninguém Sabe (Chico Buarque)
