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.

Saudades (1959)

Sílvio Caldas, one of the so-called Four Greats of Brazilian music (along with Francisco Alves, Orlando Silva, and Carlos Galhardo), was the most important artist of the seresta genre. A very romantic musical expression, characterized by simple harmonies, strong bel canto-inspired voices, and sentimental renditions, the seresta owes its affirmation in the Brazilian musical landscape to Silvio Caldas. Primarily a singer, Silvio Caldas also had success as a seresta composer chiefly in the '30s. Amongst his immortal classics, it can be mentioned that a partnership with noted lyricist Orestes Barbosa produced "Chão de Estrelas" and "Arranha-Céu"; other important examples of the duo's production of are "Serenata", "Suburbana", "Santa dos Meus Amores", "O Nome Dela Eu Não Digo", "Torturante Ironia", and "Quase Que Eu Disse". Silvio Caldas also worked with Cartola, Wilson Batista, Ary Barroso, and Billy Blanco. Silvio Caldas' militancy in the seresta genre brought him the epithet of "O Seresteiro do Brasil" (the Seresteiro/Serenader of Brazil), which followed him throughout his long and prolific career. He worked professionally as an artist for 65 years (more than any other Brazilian singer), most of it filled with intense activity in radio, the studio, and live performances. Having the seresta, a particular preference for valses, it's not surprising that Caldas was an excellent interpreter in this genre. But he became individualized in a romantic yet contained style, the opposite of the overly sentimental style practiced by other famous artists like Vicente Celestino. Silvio Caldas also didn't have a potent a voice like Francisco Alves; instead, the originality of his interpretations, which used to make frequent use of rhythmic devices, ended up opening the way for a new style that would be fully explored by Mário Reis, who, together with Orlando Silva, decisively influenced João Gilberto and all bossa nova. Caldas also dedicated himself to the samba genre, having been one of the main interpreters of Ary Barroso's songs, launching classics like "Morena Boca de Ouro" (recorded later by João Gilberto), "Linda Lourinha" (by João de Barro), "Pastorinhas" (Noel Rosa/João de Barro), "Lenço no Pescoço" (by Wilson Batista -- this samba initiated the musical polemic between Wilson Batista and Noel Rosa), "Minha Palhoça" (J. Cascata), "Da Cor do Pecado" (Bororó), and "Mulher" (Custódio Mesquita/Sadi Cabral).
Silvio Caldas was raised in a musical environment: his father was composer A.N. Caldas. Since he was a child, Silvio Caldas used to perform at parties and serestas, having debuted in a public performance at six at the Teatro Fênix. In 1927, he opened Rádio Mayrink Veiga, followed by other radio stations. Silvio Caldas recorded his first album in 1930, through Victor. Immediately noticed by Ary Barroso, he launched his "Faceira", which became Caldas' first recorded hit. In 1932, he recorded the all-time classic samba-canção "Maria" (Ary Barroso/Luiz Peixoto). After 1944, he became involved in movies, such as Tristezas Não Pagam Dívidas and Não Adianta Chorar. Having known fame and success, and having been decorated by the Brazilian Academy of Literature, Silvio Caldas retired to his ranch in upstate São Paulo, where he lived his last 40 years, still participating in the musical scene until 1970.

I have this album for some time now, and just today, I noticed that it is a collection from two previous albums released by the lable Rádio, when they decided to quit the 10 inch LP's.  Though I've searched on the Net, I couldn't find any reference to those two albums.  Does anybody have them?

A Lyra de Xopotó (1955)

The band was created from the Radio Program "Lyra de Xopotó", hosted by the DJ Paulo Roberto, at Rádio Nacional from 1954, and was directed to incentive the music bands in the country.  The program was aired on Saturdays and had the Maestro Lyrio Panicalli as the main arranger.  The program was a dialog between Paulo Roberto and Mestre Filó, a fictitious character represented by the comedian/musician Jararaca.  As the program became a success, the band that played on it started recording.
The first record was releasde by Sinter, in 1954, with the dobrados "Capitão Francisco Senna Sobrinho" and "Sonhador", both composed by Lyrio Panicalli.  In the same year, the band also recorded "Capitão Miranda Pinto" and the quadrilha "Quadrilha", both also by Lyrio Panicalli.  On the next year, 1955, the polka "Julieta" and the waltz "Saudade", both by Lyrio Panically as well were released.
In 1957, the band re-recorded with great success the maxixe "Cristo Nasceu Na Bahia", by Sebastião Cirino and Duque.  On the next record it was included the polka "Mestre Filó", by Radamés Gnattali, inspired on the character represented by Jararaca.  Still in 1957, the band released two more LP's containing Carnival Music from the years 1928 to 1946 - the golden period of the Samba Classics, like "Camisa Amarela", by Assis Valente, "Feitiço Da Vila" and "Com Que Roupa", both by Noel Rosa.
With the arrangements made by Jararaca, the record was a hit on the Carnival that year, being played on several parties in town.  Ary Vasconcelos wrote on the back cover: "The formula to create a great samba like these seems to be lost today - who knows if it can be rediscovered while listening to this Long Playing".
In 1958 the band recorded Christmas songs like "Noite Feliz (Silent Night)" by Franz Gruber and "Jingle Bells", being this last one arranged by Lyrio Panicalli.
In 1960, the band released a last album with the dobrado "São Paulo Quatrocentão", by Garoto and Chiquinho, and the marcha "Me Dá Um Dinheiro Aí", by Ivan Ferreira, Homero Ferreira and Glauco Ferreira.  With the ending of the program at Rádio Nacional, the band quit after recording 10 78rpm's and a few LP's.

Por Causa De Você (1993)

The actress and singer Watusi, alias of Maria Alice Conceição, was born in Niterói, RJ, in 1952.
She was discovered by the producer Abrahão Medina, from TV Globo, in 1969, and soon, she was known in the artistic métier. From 1978 to 1982 she was the Moulin Rouge’s principal attraction, in Paris. She was the best paid "vedette" in Europe, receiving US$ 25,000 a month to sing and dance twice a day, seven days a week. She spent 13 years playing and singing on musicals through Europe. She shared the stage with artists like Gene Kelly and Ginger Rogers and her performance was appreciated by kings, magnates, sheiks and Hollywood stars, and was several times praised by important critics from European newspapers or magazines like Paris Match. Back to Brazil, she starred the musical Golden Rio, with Grande Otello, directed by Maurício Sherman, at Scala, a disputed show house owned by Chico Recarey. The show was on stage for 13 years and Watusi played for 1,500 days in a row, a record never achieved by any other Brazilian artist.
In 1995, Watusi released two CD’s. Then she stayed home for six months, depressed by a broken romance and an abortion.
The pseudonym Watusi is inspired on an African tribe known by the high stature of its people. Once, Watusi said to the magazine Raça Brasil, that she’s had a very hot affair with Robert DeNiro.
She has a little ranch in Mendes, 120Km from Rio, and an apartment in Copacabana, and she lives alone in both places.
