Renato de Oliveira Sua Orquestra e Coro – Tabuada Musical (1963)

Philips P – 632.147 – L

Maestro Renato de Oliveira for the first time under his real name on Parallel Realities with an, as far as I know, unlisted career album, which is, judging by the LP number released in 1963 or eventually in 1964.
The cover artwork will, maybe, look familiar to you, as already another album recorded for Philips that has been posted here a short time ago, has a similar cover done by the same designer.

Renato de Oliveira‘s career is split into, at least, two separate styles: The first is the famous Maestro, burdened with the obligation to record music that will boost his reputation of an artist and musical innovator, and the second as his relaxed alter ego, Cid Gray, performing para dançar music, without any artistic pretentiousness and avant-garde urge.

Which one of the two personalities residing in one person is the artist and which one the entertainer is a matter of idividual decision of the listener and can be formed and expressed according to taste and without any explanation.

Personally I am sceptic of artistic goals, as I believe that art can only come as the result of playing and composing simply for fun and joy.

This album we have in front of us is something third, performed by a combination of Renato de Oliveira, Cid Gray and a mysterious third element

All tracks composed by W. N. de Freitas and O. Coronato:

01. Casa do 2
02. Casa do 3
03. Casa do 4

Joias de Julie Joy (1958)

Сolumbia LРСВ 37009

Julie Joy was presented a long time ago on our friend Simon Boutmans‘s Unbreakable Microgrooves blog, which Simon unfortunately closed for reasons unclear to me. Since then her only career album remained unavailable to all who have not downloaded it while it lasted.

Needless to stress that I strongly hope that Simon will return to us all once more with his rare music and competent informations.

Inside the newest package sent by Pedro & 300 discos I found this album again (in form of a Pedro transfer and cover scans), so all who have missed it have one opportunity more to download it.

The tracks Julie is singing accompanied by Renato de Oliveira e Sua Orquestra are:

01. Podes Voltar (Nazareno de Brito / Othon Russo)
02. Até Que… (Till) (Сarl Sigman / Сharles Danvers / Vrs. Osvaldo Santiago)
03. Prisioneira (Nazareno de Вrito)
04. Adeus Palavra Sentida (Odilon Noronha)
05. Tarde Demais (Athayde Julio)
06. Sombras (Truly) (A. Lavello / J. Merсer / Vrs. Airereрe)
07. Era Mentira (Nelson Gomes / Moacir Vieira)
08. E a Chuva Parou (Ribamar / Esdras Pereira da Silva / Viсtor Freire)
09. Serenata (L. Anderson / Mitсhell Рarish / J. Рiante / Vrs. Othon Russo)
10. Não Sei Рorque (Сarrossel) (N. Ortiz / Vrs. Fernando César)
11. Não Me Culpe (Dolores Duran)
12. Tinha Que Ser (Fernando Сésar)

All this should be considered as an intro to another story taking place in another reality existing parallel to the one we believe is the one we are living in…

Stay tuned…
And:
While it lasts,

ENJOY JULIE JOY
