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.

Capricho (1963)

Osny Silva (born Osny Rufino Da Silva Gomes 21/10/1919-20/07/1995) achieved enormous success with his first recording in 1943, "Alza Manolita (As Cartas Não Mentem Jamais)",  surpassing Francisco Alves and Vicente Celestino, who would record the same song afterward.  In 1951, Osny Silva launched the famous and broadly popular anthem of the soccer team Corinthians, "Campeão dos Campeões" (written by Lauro D'Ávila), a tribute to the team he was crazy about in the year it was champion.  Still popular in 1964, he was a top-seller with hits like "Jura-me", "Funeral Dum Rei Nagô", "Banzo", "Violino Cigano", "Cavaleiro Errante", "Olhos Negros", "Navio Negreiro", "O Trovador de Toledo" and several others.
Osny Silva started at the Rádio Educadora Paulista in 1939, signing with Rádio Tupi in 1940. In 1943, by suggestion of the conductor Spártaco Rossi, he recorded "Alza Manolita (As Cartas Não Mentem Jamais)", a Leo Daniderff valse that had been successfully recorded by Eduardo das Neves in the 1910s.  In his interpretation, the recording sold an amazing 80,000 copies, much more than the re-recordings by Francisco Alves (also in 1943) and by Vicente Celestino (three years later, with a version done by himself). Osny Silva recorded other albums through 1945 without the same success. In 1951, he was awarded as the Best Singer of International Popular Music, and encouraged by the success he recorded successfully in 1953 "Bandolins ao Luar" and "Violino Cigano", followed by the hits "Risque", "João Valentão", and others.  In that year, he was awarded with the Roquette-Pinto prize as the Best Singer, touring throughout Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, countries in which he also recorded. His album with "Funeral Dum Rei Nagô" and "Barzô" was considered one of the best of 1954.

Sinto Que Te Amo (1966)

Self-taught singer Altemar Dutra enjoyed great success in Brazil, Latin America, and the U.S. as an interpreter of Latin romantic songs in several genres. He has recorded several albums, some of which were released internationally. He moved to Colatina, Espírito Santo, with his family, where he taught himself to play the violão (acoustic guitar). His first public performance was at Rádio Difusora, winning a novice contest. With his talent confirmed in several similar successes, at age 17 he moved to Rio de Janeiro and was hired by Boite Baccarat and famous nightclub O Cangaceiro. Dutra's first recording was a single with "Saudade Que Vem" (Oldemar Magalhães/Célio Ferreira) and "Somente Uma Vez" (Luiz Mergulhão/Roberto Moreira) in the early '60s. He consolidated his audience in Rádio Mundial's show Boleros Dentro Da Noite and was hired by Odeon. His first national hit came with "Tudo De Mim" (Evaldo Gouveia/Jair Amorim). Other hits of the famous duo's compositions were "Sentimental Demais," "Somos Iguais," "O Trovador," and "Que Queres Tu De Mim?" In Brazil, he released 24 LPs. He also recorded in Spanish (selling up to 500,000 copies of his albums in that idiom), including an album shared with Lucho Gatica (El Bolero Se Canta Así), and performed several times in other Latin American countries. Highly regarded by the Latino community in the U.S., he became one of the most popular foreign singers. He was actually performing in a New York nightclub (La Tranquera) when he died.
