What good is there in collecting something and not share it with others with the same interest as yours?

The objective of this blog is to share songs not commercially available anymore, for music is the language of the soul and it must not be forgotten.

Soirée Dançante (1959)

Soirée Dançante
I was planning to post this album later in the year, but I have a friend that lives in Belgrade who has a very strong belief in Santa Claus.  That is so that he keeps his wish lists to remind Santa that he's a good boy and behaves well and is patiently waiting for his albums.
As I have this album ready, I think it would be a pity to shatter such faith, so this post goes earlier than it was planned to as a Christmas gift.  Lately he's been posting quite a few of Brazilian Instrumental music in he's own blog that's worth being checked on some Parallel Reality.
PS.: I couldn't find any information on Cid Gray's biography. If any of you know anything and feel like sharing it with us, please be welcomed.

    Following list. Now I only have to explore it. It seems that There's some fun on the horizon.
    By the way, "little" is not a word that describes it. "Great" might be more suitable.
