Sua Excelencia, O Samba-cancao (1957)

Odeon MODB 3062

An Odeon showcase:

01. Foi a noite  (A. C. Jobim / Newton Mendonça) – Sylvia Telles
02. Só Louco  (Dorival Caymmi) – Dorival Caymmi
03. Molambo  (Jayme Florence / Augusto Mesquita) – Roberto Luna
04. Não diga não  ((Tito Madi / Georges Henry) – Heleninha Silveira
05. Prece  (Alberto Ribeiro) – Dalva de Oliveira
06. Contando estrelas  (Alfredo Borba / Edson Borges) – Isaura Garcia
07. Brasa  (Lupicinio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins) – Orlando Silva
08. Siga  (Hélio Guimarães / Fernando Lobo) – Trio Irakitan 

The pleasant voice of Heleninha Silveira I have never heard before, so this encounter came as a pleasant surprise. Immediate research revealed 5 listed 78 rpm albums recorded in the period from 1955 to 1957.

Edson Mendes informed me in a second mail that three more of Heleninha‘s songs can be found on Youtube.

Why she has not continued her singing career is a mystery to me.

Diversos – Voce E O Artista (1960)

Philips P 630.429 L

Something out of the usual: A Karaoquê LP created by Philips back in 1960! The songs are sung on the first track by the appropriate artist (with a few words by them presenting themselves, the composition etc), then on the next track goes the same music but without vocals, prepared for you to sing it and compare your voice to the renowned artist…

Also the texts are printed out on the back cover, so you don’t have to memorise it (in case the song is unknown to you).

Sing along with the singers or sing alone, accompanied by the musicians only, the songs:

01. Tome Continha de Você (Dolores Duran / Edson Borges) Sônia Delfino
02. Tome Continha de Você (Dolores Duran / Edson Borges) Para Você Cantar
