This album was re-posted several years ago from Loronix into another parallel reality, together with other recordings by Elizeth Cardoso.
In the meantime almost all of Elizeth‘s albums are copyright protected and most links have been automatically deleted by Depostifiles magic digital fingerprinting technology. As I am writing this I am checking those links that seem to have simply expired and those that can legally be published here I will publish.
So far it looks like this list will be short and there should be no doubt that it will be shorter and shorter in the future, so I suggest to download all you can immediately as tomorrow you will probably presented with the DOWNLOAD YESTERDAY advice.

Enjoy while you can:

A Turma do Bom Balanco (1965)

Mocambo LP 40262

While preparing the re-uploads of music by K-Ximbinho, I found inside the “K-Ximbinho” folder on the backup disc on which I stored albums received from Pedro & 300discos also this album together with the text below, prepared for creating a post. As I could not remember that I have posted this album, I checked all my sites and ideed, it is nowhere to be found. Also, it is presented differently than usual, having just the front cover and neither back caver nor label scans.

In short, I do not know:

1. Where this album came from
2. Why, although I have prepared it for posting, I failed to do so
3. Why have I forgotten all about it

It is clear that you can not know the answer to questions 2 and 3, but there is a possibility that you might have the answer to question 1, so if you know where it might be from, please tell me, so I can write it in the credits below the post.

Or just clear the confusion I created with my personal dilemma by relaxing and enjoying:

01. Abandono (Chico Feitosa / Marcos Vasconcellos) **
02. Essa Favela Que Eu Amo (Zé Keti / Paulo Thiago / Sidney Miller) **
03. Fora de Tempo (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) *
04. Mar Amar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) **
05. Bom Balanço (Waltel Branco) *
06. Você (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) ***
07. Garota Moderna (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia) **
08. Vai de Vez (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire) ***
09. Gente (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) *
10. (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire) **
11. Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) *
12. Juca Bobão (Del Loro) ***

Welcome To Sambaland (1973)

Tapecar LPX.16

A first glance at the cover of this album clearly shows that it was released mainly as a welcome to visitors from abroad.

A second glance shows that neither on the front, nor the back cover there is the name of the conjunto, neither the name of the conjunto leader.

A third glance, now on the inside cover displays several photographs of some of Rio’s attractions, and a welcome text in several languages.

The right side of the inside cover gives also the list of all the renowned musicians (12 of them + Coral de Joab) as well as the instruments they are playing. It also shows that  José Menezes has done the arrangements, yet it does not point him out as leader.

On the left side of the inside cover there is a night photograph of Corcovado and a text about Rio signed by Fernando de Araujo Neves.

So who has united these twelve fine musicians? And who it their leader?

Zé Bodega – Saxofone
Maciel – Trombone
Canuto – Pistom
Sergio Barroso – Baixo
José Menezes – Guitarra, Cavaquinho
Jorge Menezes – Violão
Wilson das Neves – Bateria
Hermes Contesini, Hariovaldo Contesini, Walter Filho, Papão e Cláudio Menezes – Ritmo 
Coral de Joab

What is beyond any question is that the compositions performed are:

01. Sou do Rio (William Luna / Ararypê)
02. Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
03. Rio Carnaval dos Carnavais (Padeirinho / Nilton Russo / Moacir)
04. Ensaio Geral (William Luna)
05. Fantasia Carioca (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Osvaldo Santiago)
06. Valsa de Uma Cidade (Ismael Netto / Antônio Maria)
07. Brasil Pandeiro (Assis Valente)
08. Bem Carioca (William Luna / Luis Bittencourt)
09. Descendo o Morro (Adpt. José Xavier)
10. Cidade Maravilhosa (André Filho)
