Link original: Maestro Simonetti e Orquestra RGE – Viagem Musical pelo Brasil (1959)

zecalouro received a few days ago from a mystery Loronixer a better vinyl rip and high-quality artworks of one of the best posts so far, Maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE – Brazil a Jato (1959).
If you miss the original, take it. If you love the original, please upgrade. The new artwork can be downloaded here.
I’m grabbing the original post and previous Loronixers comments.
This LP was released by RGE to celebrate Brazilian commercial aviation, something very common at the 50’s, since there are some old LPs celebrating businesses. zecalouro, for instance, has an LP with “flight-listening” songs, sponsored by Cruzeiro airlines.
On this one, Maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE are in charge of all the tracks. This is the first LP out of a series of zecalouro releases to introduce Loronixers the Brazilian orchestras from the 50’s. This one was on queued by zecalouro due a low-res artwork, but he made a nice work on a tiny thumbnail with imaging processing software to make things better. The cover shows a Caravelle from Varig Airlines.
outras orquestras bacanas: a de ruben peres (o pocho), a de elcio alvares, a de nilo sergio e a de silvio mazzuca.
Que saudades! Do Caravelle e da Varig!
This is absolutely one of the best albums you have posted so far – can it be better than this?
My best regards!!!!
This record is from 1959, as you can see on the article below, published in the Brazilian newspaper O Dia, at 19-11-1959:
“Homenageando a aviação comercial brasileira, a RGE lançou um long-play com o famoso maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE. O disco, cujo título é “Brasil a Jato”, apresenta um desfile de músicas brasileiras bastante conhecidas de norte a sul.
