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.

  1. What a pleasant surprise! At first glance I thought that it was the Feito Para Dancar 8 (which got blocked in my account by Rapid due to complaints) in another cover. Then by looking closely and comparing the tracks I realized that it is not 8 but B! And, of course different tracks.
    Had no idea of the existence of this album.
    Thanks my friend!

  2. Oh! I thought you already had it, for it's not on your wishing list. Otherwise I would have sent it straight to you. I know you like him.
    But you said the Nº 8 was blocked due to complaints? That's weird! Unless I'm wrong, Waldir Calmon's daughter is the rightfull owner of the copyrights and she is, so to say, your friend, isn't she?
    How can that be?

    1. I did ask Marcia if I may post her father's music, and she said it is OK as long as I post old music by him. But there are several possible reasons: The album is prepared for re print, the copyright protecting service had it on it's list, or it was blocked by mistake. Sometimes I got posts and links deleted and still do not know why. An album by Neusa Maria, for example was deleted some two years ago and I still don't see anything by her on CD.
