Claudia Barroso – Compacto Duplo (1959)

Parallel Realities Studio 2013

A short time before the previous parallel reality got shattered into pieces and vanished, I presented this compacto duplo by Claudia Barroso with compositions recorded before her brega period: While she still was a cantora da noite:

1. Anema e Core (Salvatore D’Esposito / Tito Manlio) –  Instrumental
2. Come Prima (Mario Panzeri / Di Paola / Taccani)
3. Não Adianta Chorar (Eduardo Patané / Almeida Rego)
4. Deixe-me (Copinha / Julio Сésar)

A collaboration with Maestro Nicolino Cópia


Valeria e Steve Bernard – Adam and Eve – Compacto Promo (1960)

Parallel Realities Studio PRS PR-003

A traveler through realities existing parallel to the one we consider as the only one, brought back a souvenir, a compacto promo sung by Valéria and Steve Bernard and sent it to me, unfortunately, without a cover, a problem easily solved by taking a short trip to another reality similar to the one he visited. There the cover was found, but I must confess that it seems very familiar to me.
So does the name of the traveller, Edson Mendes.

The composition is:

1. Adam & Eve (Рaul Anka)


Créditos: Edson Mendes from a parallel reality

Alda Perdigao Com Walter Wanderley – Compacto (1960)

A re post from the other reality where this compacto, found in third reality, was posted in the first part of 2011.
Here is the text as originally written at that time: 

Some three week ago I received from Yves François, a friend from France, two songs by Alda Perdigão, a singer I like very much, she has recorded back in 1960, accompanied by the great Walter Wanderley.
Yves has downloaded these songs a long time ago from a site that is closed now, but both songs have the same fault: About 10 seconds are missing at the beginning of each track, which leads to the conclusion that the original up loader has recorded them on tape from radio.
Anyway, I had been too busy with other matters and did not have the time and concentration to do anything more than answer mails, so I delayed the presentation of these songs until I finally found time to look for a suitable cover in another reality, upload it and thought up a way to psychologically prepare the visitors of this site not to start writing comments of protest because the songs are not complete.
Complete or not, these two tracks are among the best that Alda has recorded.
So cool and easy…

Stop complaining about the missing beginnings (and have faith that maybe someone will eventually send us the complete tracks one of these days) while listening to:

1. …Samba Triste (Baden Powell / Billy Blanco)
2. …Tome Continha de Você (Dolores Duran / Édson Borges)


Créditos: Yves François

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: As found on Alda Perdigão – Cantora page on Facebook:

Alda Perdigão foi a primeira intérprete a gravar uma música de Baden Powell. Na ocasião ela mostrou a gravação a ele por telefone, durante a estada do músico em Paris.
