Marion – Ela canta assim – Coletanea (1945 – 1965)

Parallel Realities Studio Nov 2016

A few days ago I posted Elas Cantam Assim (1957) a 10′ lp on which 4 ladies are presented and each of them is singing two compositions and wondered why Marion, an excellent but almost completely forgotten radio singer, has not recorded more music.
Three days ago Edson Mendes returned from a travel through other times and realities where he collected altogether 18 compositions sung by Marion and sent them to me,
His collection had a name but not a cover, so I did the only logical thing to do in such cases: Started a travel myself in order to find a suitable cover. As you have guessed, I found one, repacked it all and uploaded it on server.

The 18 songs are: 

01 Doce veneno (1945) (Valzinho / M. Goulart / C. Lentine) – com Milionários do Ritmo
02 Parece até doença (1956) (Vicente Amar)
03 Consequência do carnaval (1956) (Irany de Oliveira)
04 Botãozinho em flor (1953) (José Braga)
05 Calvário do amor (1957) (Marino Pinto / Raul Sampaio)
06 Lili bolero (1952) (Sidney Lippman / E. Moore / Sylvia Dee – versão: Bidú Reis)
07 Minha Loló (1956) (Vicente Celestino) – com Ivon Curi
08 O nosso amor teve fim (1952) (Dino Ferreira / Bororó)
09 Praia vermelha (gravação não comercial – c. 1956) (Getúlio Macedo / Lourival Faissal)
10 Sem rancor (1957) (Mário Lago / Roberto Faissal)
11 Calvário do amor (1957) (Marino Pinto / Raul Sampaio)
12 Não diga não (1956) (Tito Madi  / Georges Henry)
13 Chove lá fora (1957) (Tito Madi)
14 Nêgo Cutuba (1947) (Alvarenga / Ranchinho / Hermes Teixeira)
15 Três e dez (????) (?)
16 Vem cá Mané (1957) (Ary Barroso)
17 Vovô no maxixe (1956) (Sebastião Nunes / Erasmo Silva)
18 Medley Carmen Miranda (1965)
     O que é que a baiana tem (Dorival Caymmi)
     Tahi (Pra Você Gostar de Mim) (Joubert de Carvalho)
     Diz que tem (Haníbal Cruz / Vicente Paiva)
     Good bye, boy (Assis Valente)

Ribamar – Carinho e Amor – 10′ (1960)

Parallel Realities Studio 2015

Around five years ago, in another reality, I posted the album: Tito Madi & Ribamar – Carinho e Amor received from Edson Mendes.

Some time later, somebody somewhere decided to reissue music by Tito Madi and started deleting albums with the, at that time, newly copyrighted tracks. As those who have been trying lately to download this LP noticed, instead of the download link under the above mentioned album, the absurd DOWNLOAD YESTERDAY advice has appeared.

As without the masterpieces by Ribamar on the deleted album, I have the unmistakeable feeling that his discography here is incomplete, so I started a trip through all those countless realities existing parallel to the one considered as the only one and finally found one of them where the six tracks performed by Ribamar were released on a separate career 10′ LP, also dated 1960.

Note that in both realities the arrangements are by  Tito Madi, Lyrio Panicalli, Ribamar and Severino Filho. By coincidence the backing vocals are also by the Severino Filho Choral, including Os Cariocas:

In short: Another Parallel Realities Studio release containing:

Lado A:

01. Teu céu, minhas estrelas (Tito Madi)
02. Olhe-me, diga-me (Tito Madi)
03. Senhorita (Tito Madi)

Lado B:

04. Rio triste (Tito Madi)
05. Chove lá fora (Tito Madi)
06. Quero-te assim (Tito Madi)

The Belgrade Dixieland Orchestra apresenta Aleksandra Bijelić – Ao Vivo em Belgrado (2013)

Parallel Realities Studio 2013 10 LP

The world famous Belgrade Dixieland Orchestra, which is focusing mainly on  Dixieland is sounding considerably better than anything else in the style you might hear (and watch) anywhere else, including places like New Orleans.
The producer, singer and Banjo player Vladimir Racković whose renowned sound studio is nearby my place in downtown Belgrade has just recorded another CD and he mentioned it when we met a couple of days ago.
As you might have guessed (especially after a quck glance at the picture above) my first question was:

Is Aleksandra Bijelić singing on the new CD?

Unfortunately (from my point of view), it turned out to be a purely instrumental album…

The first time I had the pleasure to hear & watch Aleksanda performing on stage was a few years ago and the whole show was extremely fascinating, her voice was great as well as her appearance on the scene: In a long black dress, with black gloves over the elbows and colorful feather around her neck… Her singing was perfectly backed by the Belgrade Dixieland Orchestra

I was impressed and transported to the Mississippi Delta.

I could not resist to ask Vladimir if I might take a trip through parallel realities to find something suitable to present her singing to the visitors of my site (without being arrested for copyright violations or similar).

The usual trip proved successful: I managed to find another reality in which somebody has recorded her performance, or several of them, from the soundboard, chosen four compositions and published them on vinyl in form of a 10 Inch LP with Aleksandra‘s picture prominently on the front cover.

That night (or nights) Aleksandra was singing these compositions

1. I ve Found A New Baby
2. Sentimental Journey
3. La Vie en Rose
4. I m on my Way to Canaan-land

Marisa Gata Mansa – Água_Viva (1981)

While finishing the uploads and checking of my files, I noticed a folder with videos where I found some 20 minutes of a TV show recorded 1981 for TVЕRJ (whatever that might be) called Нistorias de MРB – Рrograma Águа Vivа
The performer is Marisa Gata Mansa, as you might have guessed by the title of this post as well as by the cover above, found in a parallel reality.
The sound is not exactly Hi Fi but I touched it up just a bit to eliminate some noise and to cut out the starting and ending jingle as well as the anouncer’s text.

Marisa is singing:

1. Lеораrdо (Vitаl Limа)
2. O Que Será (À Flor da Реle) (Сhiсo Вuarque)
3. Sozinhos (Ivоr Lаnсellotti / Dеlсio Саrvalho)
4. Соbrаs e Lagаrtos (Suеli Соsta / Hermínio Веllo de Саrvalho)
5. О Negóсio É Amаr (Саrlоs Lуrа / Dolorеs Durаn)
6. Viаgеm (Јоão de Aquino / Раulo Сésar Рinheiro)

Marisa Gata Mansa – Rarities

While fixing links and uploading to Deposit I ran into two compilations by Marisa Gata Mansa I posted in Janurary and February 2009. Both of them, compiled in an apparent haste, had some tracks which, as pointed out by lots of visitors of Parallel Realities, were performed by artists other than Marisa. I promised to fix and re-upload the albums, but kept forgetting about it…
Now finally I checked and rearranged the tracks and put them all on one LP (produced at the Parallel Realities Studio, as you might have guessed).

The tracks are numbered as follows:

01. Marisa Gata Mansa Fala Sobre Dolores Duran (Radio Brazil)
02. Nao Me Culpe (Radio Brazil)
03. Voce Esteve com o Meu Bem 1953
04. Amor Perfeito (com Clara Nunes)
05. Voce e linda
06. Quem Vem do Alto (dueto com Emilio Santiago)
07. Juliana
08. Teresinha
09. A Promessa
10. Kalu
11. Malu Mulher (de novela)
12. Hora de Lutar (ao vivo)



Isaura Garcia – Linda Flor (1944, a parallel reality)

Here is another album by Isaura Garcia found in another reality, consisting of tracks from the period from 1941 to 1944, chosen by the same criterion that I would have used if I were the one who made this compilation…

These are:
Lado A:
A1. 1942 – Partida precipitada (Herivelto Martins – Marino Pinto) – Samba
A2. 1942 – Aperto de mão (Augusto Mesquita – Horondino Silva – Jaime Florence) – Samba
A3. 1943 – Não era adeus (Herivelto Martins – Cícero Nunes) – Samba
A4. 1943 – Adivinhe coração (Custódio Mesquita – Rui Evaldo) – Samba
Lado B:
B1. 1943 – Linda flor (ai ioiô) (Henrique Vogeler – Luiz Peixoto – Marques Porto) – Samba-canção
B2. 1944 – Não faças caso coração (Custódio Mesquita – Rui Evaldo) – Samba
B3. 1944 – Ironia do amor (Horondino Silva – Del Loro) – Samba
B4. 1944 – Barulho no morro (Roberto Martins) – Samba
B5. 1944 – Pra que? (Marino Pinto – Mario Rossi) – Samba

Isаurа Gаrсiа – Оndе аmеi (1946, a parallel reality)

It is (probably) common knowledge that Isаurа Gаrсiа has recorded more than a hundred of songs in form of 78 rpms, starting her recording career, as far as I know, in 1941. Some of these songs are beautiful, some are out of my focus of interest and some are saved from extremely scratchy discs and difficult to listen to…
In such cases, the traveler through parallel realities has an advantage as he has the opportunity to find exactly what he wants and as he wants it.
I am ilustrating this text with this album, found in another place, reality and time…
The date of production was 1946, and the songs were recorded during 1945-46.
By coincidence, the choice of the songs is exactly as I would have chosen them according to my taste, as well as the cover is, from my point of view, quite acceptable.

Take a trip through this reality and enjoy:

Lado A:

Duro nega (Herivelto Martins)
Século do progresso (Noel Rosa)
Teu retrato (Nelson Gonçalves – Benjamin Batista)
Prêmio de consolação (Augusto Mesquita – Jaime Florence)
Deixa o povo falar (Erasmo Silva – Geraldo Gomes)

Lado B:

Paraíso da sorte (Horondino Silva – Del Loro)
Onde amei (Alberto Rossi – José Marcílio)
Livro aberto (Aquiles Alves – Carlitos)
Carinhoso (Pixinguinha – João de Barro)
Rancho fundo (Ary Barroso – Lamartine Babo)


Trustworthy source of this horrifying information: Abdulah, the opposition activist, reporting to Reuters by mobile phone.

Virginia Lane – (1951 – 1958)

Virginia Lane‘s discography covers the period from 1946 to 1960 and consists of 78 rpm records, a compacto and an album with songs for children (at least the cover looks that way). As far as I know she was also a theater actress…
Her recordings are more difficult to find than her pictures which is by the way quite OK from my point of view, as they are much better than her songs.
This compilation was released in a parallel reality as an LP and the picture on the front cover was chosen (I suppose) as being the most revealing one available…

Enjoy Virginia Lane‘s minimalist outfit while having trouble to concentrate on these tracks:

01. 1951 Banana (Jota Júnior / Luis Antônio / Paulo Gesta)
02. 1951 Sassaricando (Luis Antônio / Oldemar Magalhães / Jota Júnior)

03. 1952 Lá Vem A Cobra Grande (Antônio Almeida / João de Barro)
04. 1952 Vai Levando (a Confusão É Geral) (Antônio Almeida)

05. 1954 Amendoim Torradinho (Freitas Carvalho / Luisa Pereira).wma

06. 1954 Marcha Da Pipoca (Luis Bandeira / Arcênio de Carvalho)

07. 1956 Cabeça De Tijolo (Alfredo Monteiro / Cícero Nunes)

08. 1957 Mamãe Já Vem Aí (Nelson Castro / José Batista)

09. 1957 Mão De Gato (José Roberto / Oldemar Magalhães)
10. 1957 João Ninguém (Amado Regis / José Roberto)

11. 1958 Bom Mesmo É Mulher (Mário Meira Guimarães / Nina Nunes / J. Maia)


Ester de Abreu – Ninguém Como Tu (1958)

Ester de Abreu can not be counted as completely forgotten, as fortunately Toque has posted her 10 inch with collected tracks from 1954 called Oito Sucessos.
Of course, an attempt to find another career album by her was crowned by failure, so I had to search (as usual in such cases) through parallel realities.
What I found there was another 10 inch with collected tracks from 1954 – 58. labeled Ninguém Como Tu.

An atmosphere of fado will engulf you while listening to:

1954 Coimbra
1956 Ninguém Como Tu
1956 Lisboa Antiga
1956 Lavadeiras de Portugal
1956 Foi Deus
1956 Whatever Will Be Will Be (Que Será Será)
1957 Só Ficou A Saudade
1958 Tudo Isto é Fado


Vera Lúcia – Copacabana – 10-inch (1959, a parallel reality)

Any attempt to present here Vera Lúcia with a career album failed so far mainly because of two reasons:
1. She has recorded only three albums (during the period from 1959 to 1960).
2. These are nowhere to be found.
So the usual procedure had to be adopted also in this case.
A trip through other realities, existing parallel to the one we consider our own, proved fruitful as a 10 – inch with 8 songs turned up.
In short this Parallel Realities Studio production consists of 3 complete 78’s and two loose songs.
What made me curious is the question why this first track (Copacabana from 1951) was added to this compilation at all, as it is quite different in all aspects to the remaining seven.
Even more inexplicable: Why was this album named after this first track.
The only answer I could think of that might answer those two questions is that the word Copacabana looks better when printed on the front cover then e.g. Porquê Tinha De Ser.
While trying to figure out a better reason that explains this kind of dilemmas, cool your mind with sounds coming out of your speakers while Vera Lúcia is singing her repertoire consisting of:
1. 1951 Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
2. 1955 O Amor É Isso (Fernando César)
3. 1955 Amendoim Torradinho (Henrique Beltrão)
4. 1955 Valerá A Pena (Dorival Caymmi / Hugo Lima / Carlos Guinle)
5. 1955 O Que Os Olhos Não Vêm (Luis Bandeira)
6. 1958 Por Causa De Você (Dolores Duran / Tom Jobim)
7. 1959 Este Seu Olhar (Tom Jobim)
8. 1959 Porquê Tinha De Ser (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Doris Monteiro & Ricardo Jr. – Ao Vivo (2004)

I created two albums with songs performed by Doris Monteiro and Ricardo Jr. in 2004, and posted them both on Parallel Realities some 20 months ago .
One containing tracks recorded by them in a home studio: Doris Monteiro & Ricardo Jr. – Made in House (2004) as well as this album I am re posting now, recorded live at a celebration of Doris‘ birthday for a selected audience.
Several weeks ago, after receiving complaints on this album in particular by someone who claimed to be a personal friend of Doris Monteiro and Ricardo Jr., I removed it from my sites and deleted the download links.
A few days later, I found a comment on the Made in House album on my mirror site on WordPress signed with Ricardo Jr., thanking me in Doris‘ and his name for publishing it.
I contacted Ricardo Jr. and sent him this live album I had removed so he can listen to it and asked for their explicit permission to re post it.
Ricardo Jr. answered that both Doris and he were delighted and enjoyed the music, complimented upon the cover artworks and gave me their blessings to re post it again as well as to post here any unpublished music created by them.
So consider both albums as a special gift from Doris Monteiro and Ricardo Jr. to us all.
Enjoy Doris Monteiro and Ricardo Jr. performing:

Violeta Cavalcanti – No Baile – 10 Inch (1945 a parallel reality)

Here is the second Violeta Cavalcanti compilation created from dougc‘s package: One complete 78 rpm from 1941 and two from 1945 are presented here on an unusual 10 inch. Unusual, because here are 6 tracks on one 10 inch despite the 8 track standard…
But surprises are frequent when taking a look into other realities, as well as when creating one.
The music?
Sounds like a World War II movie soundtrack to me (the scene where British pilots enjoy themselves in a pub the evening before their mission of bombing a Nazi stronghold).
Enjoy or don’t enjoy these tracks:
SET/1941 – 78 RPM
1. Meu Dinheiro Tem (Germano Augusto / Zé Pretinho)
2. Papai Não Vai (Wilson Batista / Ataulfo Alves)
JUN/1945 – 78 RPM
3. Quem Mandou Telefonar (Romeu Gentil / Elpídio Viana)
4. Leilão Da Baiana (Max Bulhões / Gustavo De Oliveira)
DEZ/1945 – 78 RPM
5. Vou Tratar De Mim (Mário Rossi / Roberto Martins)
6. Tem Tamanduá No Baile (Roberto Martins / Mário Rossi)

Violeta Cavalcanti – Os Olhos Mais Lindos – 10 Inch (1956 a parallel reality)

I have known about the existence of Violeta Cavalcanti and have listened to her songs performed after more than 20 years after the termination of her career in 1958 due to the (at that time) usual reason:
She got married.
Her golden period that I believed was in the late fifties, was nowhere to be found.
Besides numerous 78 rpms, Violeta Cavalcanti has recorded just one solo 10 inch called Exaltação à Bahia released in 1956. which I have added it to my Santa Claus list hoping that somebody has it and is willing to send it to me or post it anywhere else on the net.
Recently, I did have a bit of luck on P2P where user dougc shared some of Violeta’s 78 inches, most of them of them in a surprisingly good quality.
For today’s post I have chosen 4 complete 78 rpm recordings from dougc‘s package covering the period from 1954 to 1956, burned them to an audio cd and could not stop listening to it over and over again last night.
Simply fantastic, the tracks are in an ascending quality starting from the first to the last song: Fita Meus Olhos, which is absolutely fascinating and hypnotic.
This time, instead of searching through parallel realities, I went the opposite way round: I compiled the tracks and created the cover assuming without any doubt that a parallel reality where such an 10 inch was released simply must exist, at least elementary logic says so.
The songs are:
JUN / 1954:
1. Bonde Errado (Paquito / Romeu Gentil)
2. Castigo (Paulo Neto / Valdemar Barbosa)
3. Quando Eu Danço Com Você (Sidney Prosen / Vrs. Ghiaroni)
4. Capacho Da Vida (Milton Legey / Paulo Menezes)

5. Deixa Eu Nêgo (let Me Go Lover) (All Hill / Jenny Lou Carson / Vrs. Giuseppe Ghiaroni) – com Trio Irakitan
6. Mágoas Sem Solução (Othon Russo / Edel Ney)
7. Os Olhos Mais Lindos (los Ojos Más Lindos) (Francisco Canaro / Vrs. William Duba)
8. Fita Meus Olhos (Peterpan)

Isaura Garcia – Não Sou Eu (1952. a parallel reality)

Several posts ago I informed you all of a trip through parallel realities I have taken and the results of it. Two recordings by Isaura Garcia, taken from two different realities, actually quite similar to each other.
Here is the second recording from the second parallel reality, an EP with 8 tracks covering the period from 1949 to 1952.
Note that the picture on the front cover is the same one as on the first one published, just retouched in a different way.
Enjoy the 8 tracks:
1. Sofres Porquê Queres (Pixinguinha) OUT/1949
2. Não Sou Eu (Augusto Mesquita / Jaime Florence “Meira”)JUN/1950
3. Represália (Horondino Silva “Dino” / Augusto Mesquita)JUL/1950
4. Pode Ficar (Vicente Leporace / Hervé Cordovil)SET/1950
5. Duelo (Cícero Nunes)OUT/1950
6. Beijo Frio (Augusto Mesquita)ABR/1952
7. Sejam Felizes (Augusto Mesquita)ABR/1952
8. Nunca (Lupicínio Rodrigues) JUL/1952

Isaura Garcia – Estava Escrito (1954 a parallel reality)

Eight of the 78 rpm recording by Isaura Garcia were published in 1957 as an 10 inch titled A Personalíssima.
That was how it happened in our side branch of infinite realities existing parallel to each other.
In another reality, in most aspects similar to the one we call our own, I found two of her 10 inch records with a completely different choice of compositions also previously printed as 78 s. Needless to point out that I brought them to here and now, as, let’s say, souvenirs.
The compositions on this 10 inch, dated 1954 are:
1. Quando A Saudade Insistir (Silva Jr. / Cícero Nunes) JUN/1953
2. Neblina (Henrique Simonetti / Randal Juliano)JUN/1953
3. Vento Vadio (Evaldo Ruy / Hianto de Almeida) MAR/1954
4. Falaram De Você (René Bittencourt / Hervé Cordovil)MAR/1954
5. Apesar Dos Pesares (Newton Teixeira) AGO/1953
6. Estava Escrito (Francisco de Assis Bezerra de Menezes)AGO/1953
7. Verdade Cruel (Luis Chacon)ABR/1954
8. Pense em mim (Antônio Maria) 1954

Odete Amaral – Êta Rio (1946)

Another recording em 10 polegadas by Odete Amaral, fished out of the same parallel reality as the previous one.
A collection of her recordings which were published as 78 rpm in our reality, covering the period from 1940 to 1946.
A curiosity: The first track (So Voce) has neither a time stamp nor are the composers credited. Don’t ask why as I have no idea.
1. So Voce (? / ?)
2. Sorris De Mim (Babaú / João da Bahiana)
3. Você Quis (Alvaiade / Nicola Bruni)
4. Êta Rio (Nicola Bruni / A. F. Silva / Alvaiade)
5. Tudo É Ilusão (Eden Silva / Tufic Lauar) Acadêmicos do Salgueiro
6. Salve O Inventor Da Mulher (Amaro Silva / Djalma Mafra)
7. Nosso Amor Não Morreu (Sebastião Gomes / Alcides Rosa)
8. Na Chave Do Portão (Djalma Mafra / Alberto Maia)

Odete Amaral – Sorrindo (1939. a parallel reality)

I don’t think that it is necessary to explain that this 10 Inch record by Odete Amaral has been recovered from a parallel reality…
1. 1936 – Colibri (Ary Barroso)
2. 1937 – Sorrindo (Cyro Monteiro / Luis Pimentel)
3. 1937 – Quem Foi Que Disse (Amado Regis / Marcílio Vieira)
4. 1938 – Ironia (Mário Nielsen / Ataulfo Alves / Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide”)
5. 1938 – O Mandarim (João Valença / Raul Valença)
6. 1939 – Pavãozinho Dourado (Roberto Cunha)
7. 1939 – Não pago o bonde (J. Cascata-Leonel Azevedo)
8. 1939 – O Gato E O Rato (Augusto Garcez / Wilson Batista / Arnô Canegal)

Odete Amaral – Murmurando (1944.a parallel reality)

Here is the promised second LP from the same parallel reality the previous one was taken from…
01. 1941 A Batucada Começou (Ary Barroso)
02. 1941 É Mato (Alvaiade / Wilson Batista)
03. 1941 Não Quero Dizer Adeus (Laurindo Almeida)
04. 1941 Vem Amor (Isaias Ferreira / Jorge de Castro / Enésio Silva)
05. 1942 Carteiro (Felisberto Martins / Lupicínio Rodrigues)
06. 1942 Diz Que Vai Vai Vai (Haníbal Cruz)
07. 1942 Por Causa De Alguém (Ismael Silva)
08. 1943 Jamais Acontecerá (Djalma Mafra / Geraldo Pereira)
09. 1943 Resignação (Geraldo Pereira / Arnô Provenzano)
10. 1943 Sinhazinha (Laurindo Almeida)
11. 1944 Carta Fatal (Ari Monteiro / Geraldo Pereira)
12. 1944 Murmurando (Mário Rossi / Fon-Fon)

Odete Amaral – Suspiro (1941.a prallel reality)

Why Odete Amaral‘s career albums are nowhere to be found (except for Do Outro Lado da Vida (with Cyro Monteiro Jr.), which Toque has kindly shared with us all), is a mystery to me. There are some compilations of 78 rpm but her LPs from 1957, 1969 and 1977 I could not find even in other parallel realities, however incredible it may seem. I did manage to find two here unreleased compilations of 78 rpm though, of which I am posting now the first one.
01. 1937 Luar No Morro (Valdrido Silva)
02. 1937 Meu Veneno (Milton Amaral)
03. 1937 Triste Fiquei (Haníbal Cruz / Lauro Paiva)
04. 1937 Não Deixarei O Morro (Juraci Nazaré De Araújo / Luis A. Pimentel)
05. 1939 Suspiro (Almanir Grego / Gadé)
06. 1939 Quando Dei Adeus (Wilson Batista / Ataulfo Alves)
07. 1940 Depois Da Discussão (Wilson Batista / Marino Pinto)
08. 1940 História De Criança (Germano Augusto / Wilson Batista)
09. 1940 Mulher De Seu Oscar (Ataulfo Alves / Wilson Batista)
10. 1940 Noite De Esplendor (Felisberto Martins / Cristóvão de Alencar)
11. 1940 Chinelo Velho (Wilson Batista / Marino Pinto)
12. 1941 Tenho Que Fugir (Germano Augusto / Wilson Batista)

Carmen Costa – Reencontro (em 10 polegadas)

In another time, place and reality, exists a 10 inch by Carmen Costa with 8 tracks, as far as I know, not included in any of her career albums or collections.

Here it is, as usual in such cases, as a Parallel Realities Studio release.
1. Reencontro
2. Está bem
3. Gente cega
4. Palácio Provisório
5. Se eu fosse contar
6. Se você me quer bem – com Mirabeau
7. Siga seu destino
8. Começo de Vida

Dalva de Andrade – Amor Assim Não Se Esqueçe (1964 a parallel reality)

In a reality existing parallel to ours, an album by Dalva de Andrade was published containing eight songs that are not part of any of her career albums.
Some of these are from singles but not all are even listed in her discography, so their original release date is hidden, at least for me…
1. Voltei Para Ficar (Stellinha Egg / Macedo Neto) (1960)
2. Minha Solidão (Adelino Moreira) (1961)
3. Quando Um Amor Se Acaba (Peterpan) (1961)
4. Sem Você (Tom Jobim / Vinícius de Moraes)
5. Tormento (Lindolfo Gaya / Romeo Nunes) (1962)
6. Amor Assim Não Se Esqueçe
7. Meu Sonho, Nosso Amor
8. O Pecador (el Pecador) (Alexandro F. Roth / Vrs. Romeo Nunes) (1963)

Sylvia Telles Sings Luiz Bonfá (1962. parallel reality)

The quantum physics and philosophical concept of infinite parallel realities is accepted daily by more and more people…
Here is an extract from a mail I received several days ago from Edson Mendes:
“Regarding the comment made by Frank Oliver about Sylvia’s recordings, I remembered that in my researches I found an article published in an old Brazilian magazine, named O Cruzeiro, that noticed that Silvinha was in studio recording a LP with Luiz Bonfa. The year was 1958.
I thought that for some reason Odeon aborted the original project, as in fact only an EP with four tracks (Tanto amor, De braços lassos, Meu sonho and Perdido de amor) was released, named Luiz Bonfa e Sylvia Telles.
In 2001, EMI released a Sylvia’s CD on Serie Bis that included three tracks (De cigarro em cigarro, Caminho sem fim, Taboleiro) in which the guitar is clearly played by Bonfa, although this is not mentioned in the tracklist. As these tracks are not listed in any Sylvia’s or Bonfa’s discography, I concluded that they were originally recorded for the mentioned LP and never released after this, staying in Odeon’s archives since then.
So, now I am thinking that in another parallel reality maybe this so wanted LP can be published, maybe including some additional tracks with other Bonfa’s compositions sung by Sylvia?”
A search through parallel realities, conducted by me, revealed the fact that in one parallel reality of 1962, an obscure label published such an album. The coincidence is even more stunning, considering the fact that the photographs of the cover artwork were published in our branch of infinite realities in the 1958 edition of the O Cruzeiro magazine, that Edson mentioned in his text published above…
Inexplicable but true. While meditating about the metaphysical aspects of this story, enjoy the nine track:
1. Perdido de amor (Luiz Bonfá)
2. Meu sonho (Luiz Bonfá)
3. De braços lassos (Luiz Bonfá)
4. Tanto amor (Luiz Bonfá – Reynaldo Dias Leme)
5. De cigarro em cigarro (Luiz Bonfá)
6. Caminho sem fim (Luiz Bonfá)
7. Tabuleiro (Luiz Bonfá)
8. Manhã de carnaval (Luiz Bonfá – Antonio Maria)
9. Amor sem adeus (Luiz Bonfá – A. C. Jobim)
In our side branch of parallel realities:
Tracks 1 – 4 – extracted from “Luiz Bonfá e Sylvia Telles” (1958).
Tracks 5 – 7 – recorded in 1958 and published for the first time on “Serie Bis – Sylvia Telles” (2001).
Tracks 8 – 9 – extracted from “Sylvia U.S.A” (1961).
Tracks 1 – 7 – Luiz Bonfá plays the guitar.
Track 8 – Sylvia is accompanied by Barney Kessel and Joe Mondragon.
Track 9 – Sylvia is backed by Calvin Jackson and Al McKibbon.

This concert was held 2003, in a theatre in Rio de Janeiro as one of three charity shows and was never released neither as vinyl nor as CD. Actually, it is the last performance of Marisa Gata Mansa. I found the recording of it some time ago and finally decided to create a cover and post it as a Parallel Realities Studio Production on the 1.1.2010.

Marisa Gata Mansa and Marcello Gaspar performed several separate songs, voice and guitar.
Here is the track listing:
1. Marcello Gaspar:
– O que é amar
2. Marcello Gaspar:

Helena de Lima – Ao Vivo (2007)

A long time ago, while searching the deepest depths of the Internet, I found 15 tracks by Helena de Lima, together with the following text:
Disco gravado ao vivo no estúdio Hanoi Hanoi nos dias 16 e 23 de julho de 2007.
Faixa Bonus gravada ao vivo na Sala Baden Powell com Trio Bello em 8 de novembro de 2006.
As dear Helena was born in 1926, she performed this concert at the age of 81.
The tracks were without a cover and further net searches, conducted periodically, showed no mentioning of this recording, so after giving it additional time to see it published, I decided to post it here.
Unfortunately I can not remember from who I downloaded it, so I can not credit him.

Doris Monteiro & Ricardo Jr. – Made in House (2004)

Together with the music from the previous post, I downloaded these tracks (without any covers) which are probably recorded as a private session together with Ricardo Jr. and using sequencers. An investigation about details proved unsuccesful.
So here it is with covers designed at the Parallel Realities Studio:
1. Do Ré Mi
2. Mocinho Bonito
3. Caminhemos
4. Mudando de Conversa
5. Conversa de Botequim
6. Mulambo
