Marion – Ela canta assim – Coletanea (1945 – 1965)

Parallel Realities Studio Nov 2016

A few days ago I posted Elas Cantam Assim (1957) a 10′ lp on which 4 ladies are presented and each of them is singing two compositions and wondered why Marion, an excellent but almost completely forgotten radio singer, has not recorded more music.
Three days ago Edson Mendes returned from a travel through other times and realities where he collected altogether 18 compositions sung by Marion and sent them to me,
His collection had a name but not a cover, so I did the only logical thing to do in such cases: Started a travel myself in order to find a suitable cover. As you have guessed, I found one, repacked it all and uploaded it on server.

The 18 songs are: 

01 Doce veneno (1945) (Valzinho / M. Goulart / C. Lentine) – com Milionários do Ritmo
02 Parece até doença (1956) (Vicente Amar)
03 Consequência do carnaval (1956) (Irany de Oliveira)
04 Botãozinho em flor (1953) (José Braga)
05 Calvário do amor (1957) (Marino Pinto / Raul Sampaio)
06 Lili bolero (1952) (Sidney Lippman / E. Moore / Sylvia Dee – versão: Bidú Reis)
07 Minha Loló (1956) (Vicente Celestino) – com Ivon Curi
08 O nosso amor teve fim (1952) (Dino Ferreira / Bororó)
09 Praia vermelha (gravação não comercial – c. 1956) (Getúlio Macedo / Lourival Faissal)
10 Sem rancor (1957) (Mário Lago / Roberto Faissal)
11 Calvário do amor (1957) (Marino Pinto / Raul Sampaio)
12 Não diga não (1956) (Tito Madi  / Georges Henry)
13 Chove lá fora (1957) (Tito Madi)
14 Nêgo Cutuba (1947) (Alvarenga / Ranchinho / Hermes Teixeira)
15 Três e dez (????) (?)
16 Vem cá Mané (1957) (Ary Barroso)
17 Vovô no maxixe (1956) (Sebastião Nunes / Erasmo Silva)
18 Medley Carmen Miranda (1965)
     O que é que a baiana tem (Dorival Caymmi)
     Tahi (Pra Você Gostar de Mim) (Joubert de Carvalho)
     Diz que tem (Haníbal Cruz / Vicente Paiva)
     Good bye, boy (Assis Valente)

Ribamar – Carinho e Amor – 10′ (1960)

Parallel Realities Studio 2015

Around five years ago, in another reality, I posted the album: Tito Madi & Ribamar – Carinho e Amor received from Edson Mendes.

Some time later, somebody somewhere decided to reissue music by Tito Madi and started deleting albums with the, at that time, newly copyrighted tracks. As those who have been trying lately to download this LP noticed, instead of the download link under the above mentioned album, the absurd DOWNLOAD YESTERDAY advice has appeared.

As without the masterpieces by Ribamar on the deleted album, I have the unmistakeable feeling that his discography here is incomplete, so I started a trip through all those countless realities existing parallel to the one considered as the only one and finally found one of them where the six tracks performed by Ribamar were released on a separate career 10′ LP, also dated 1960.

Note that in both realities the arrangements are by  Tito Madi, Lyrio Panicalli, Ribamar and Severino Filho. By coincidence the backing vocals are also by the Severino Filho Choral, including Os Cariocas:

In short: Another Parallel Realities Studio release containing:

Lado A:

01. Teu céu, minhas estrelas (Tito Madi)
02. Olhe-me, diga-me (Tito Madi)
03. Senhorita (Tito Madi)

Lado B:

04. Rio triste (Tito Madi)
05. Chove lá fora (Tito Madi)
06. Quero-te assim (Tito Madi)
