REVIEW by Andreas Dünnewald:
What a surprise! Since Murmúrio is one of my favourite songs, this album caught my immediate attention, of course. However, it turned out more interesting as I expected because it includes some arrangements (or even backing tracks?) that were re-utilised from other artist’s recordings:
1. Murmúrio features the elegant arrangement by Severino Filho as issued on Elis Regina’s debut album Viva a Brotolândia (1961, Continental LPP 3161).
2. Não Tenho Você is identical with Ângela Maria’s version on the album of the same name (1961, Continental LPP 3179).
3. Quando a Chuva Chegar is identical with Ângela Maria’s version on the album Quando A Noite Vem – Ângela Maria, Uma Voz Para Milhões (1961, Continental LPP 3.144).
You may compare these three version on my website here and here.
4. Ninguém Chora Por Mim is identical with Carlos José’s version on his 1960 album Carlos José Canta Para Você (1960, Continental LPP 3130).
Thus, this album is one of those to feature arrangements from other artist’s recordings, at least partly as Dó-Ré-Mi-Fafá Lemos (1961) by Fafá Lemos, Show by Pernambuco, Segredo para Dois (1963) by Radamés Gnattali, or even completely like Sambas (1961) and Sambas Nº 2 (1963) by Don Júnior (Héctor Costita) as well as Na Cadência do Samba (1963) by Aurino and Jorginho.
So thanks for this collector’s item. Maybe some other readers can help to identify even more songs.
