Haroldo de Almeida – Nosso Romance (1961)

Columbia LPCB 37172

Presenting Haroldo de Almeida for the first time on Parallel Realities, with his, as far as I could find out, only career album, released 1961. He has also recorded several 78 rpms during the period from 1956 to 1961.
Why only one LP is a mystery to me, as Haroldo‘s voice is pleasant and his way of singing superb. The acompanhamento by Astor e Sua Orquestra is perfect.
By the way, this album was already presented on the net on Raridades Musicais Brasileiras, a fine blog which started very promising, but abruptly stopped posting without any explanation why.
Now we have it in front of us again but this time as a transfer by Pedro from a quite clean LP.

If you have never before heard Haroldo singing, don’t hesitate to add Nosso Romance to your collection. I am sure you will enjoy and play these songs over and over:

01. Triste Não (Jorge Smera / Othon Russo)
02. Dia de Nós Dois (Newton Ramalho / Almeida Rego)
03. Receita Pra Sofrer (Hianto de Almeida / Otávio Teixeira)
04. Brinquedo de Você (Hianto de Almeida / Macedo Neto)
05. Chuva Fria (Haroldo de Almeida)
06. Vestido de Adeus (Luis Antônio)
07. Vai de Mim (Hianto de Almeida / Edson Borges)
08. Pedaço de Mau Caminho (Haroldo de Almeida / Hélio Marinho)
09. Neste Mundo de Deus (Hianto de Almeida / Macedo Neto)
10. Hoje Quem Chora Sou Eu (Haroldo de Almeida)
11. Vai Com Deus (Luiz Bandeira / Silvio César)
12. Resto de Vida (Haroldo de Almeida)

Celso Murilo – Tremendo Balanco (1964)

Odeon MOFB 3390

By now it should be obvious that the latest package sent by Pedro & 300discos contains the complete of career albums that Celso Murilho has recorded under his (real?) name Celso Murilho. Unfortunately his album Mr. Ritmo did not pass the digital fingerprints test and was immediately deleted by Depositfiles‘ server, so I can not post it. About Mr. Ritmo you may read Zeca‘s text reprinted on Órfãos do Loronix, but I am not sure if the link to download it works as Google gives a warning about detected malware or similar when clicking it. Tremendo Balanço on the other hand, may be enjoyed without risks while simultaneously reading Zeca‘s text on Órfãos do Loronix.

As usual in such cases here is the list of musicians:

Celso Murilo (Piano, Órgão)
Astor (Trombone
Édson Machado (Bateria)
Gabriel (Baixo)
Coro do Zezinho

And the tracklist:

01. Vai Menina (Nilo Sérgio)
02. Sally’s Tomato (Henry Mancini)
03. Brincando Com Fogo (Orlandivo / Roberto Jorge)
04. Seu José (Silvio César)
05. Tristeza de Nós Dois (Durval Ferreira / Maurício Einhorn / Bebeto)
06. Amanhecendo (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire)
07. Jogado Fora (João Mello)
08. Ti Guarderó Nel Cuore (Nino Oliviero / Riz Ortolani / Marcello Ciorciolini)
09. Sem Fim (Roberto Jorge / José Ari)
10. Love For Sale (Cole Porter)
11. Poinciana (Nat Simon / Buddy Bernier)
12. Moça Flor (Durval Ferreira / Luis Fernando Freire)
