My digital camera has gone. I never though this would happen and now I know how a digital camera is an essential item at Loronix, all covers are made with a digital camera, no camera, no show. I need to have it fixed by tomorrow morning. It is frustrating to read at camera LCD the message “No Memory Stick” while you know there are more than twenty album covers there.

Anyway, great coincidence that I have this LP cover ready for my personal collection of albums with birds on cover. This singer was never released before at Loronix and is also pretty unknown outside Brazil. zecalouro took part on this cover photo session to make an extra income, probably to buy a new digital camera. The covers alone worth the entire album, but let’s see what we have inside.

This is Angela Roro – Simples Carinho (1983), for Polydor, her forth LP. I will let you with Angela Roro and the help of AMG on her bios. Meanwhile I will make a deep search around the apartment to find an old memory stick. This is a really unusual release at Loronix and you should decide to blame or thanks the defective camera for it. Tracks include:


Ângela Ro Ro studied classical piano from an early age. Her nickname Ro Ro is derived from her rough and low voice. She began to play around the Carioca neighborhood of Ipanema, and soon, influenced by her idol Ella Fitzgerald (along with Maysa and Jacques Brel), she moved to London during the military regimen, where she survived upon small jobs while performing around the city. Returning to Brazil in 1979, she was hired by Polygram, recording her first album in that year, Ângela Ro Ro, which had the hits “Amor, Meu Grande Amor,” “A Mim e a Mais Ninguém,” and “Tola Foi Você.” Always faithful to her dramatic, irreverent, sexually unconventional, and explosive character, Ro Ro followed her career, recording in 1980 the LP Só Nos Resta Viver, which had a great success with the title track; “Tango da Bronquite” also was a hit. “Escândalo,” by Caetano Veloso, is from the 1981 LP of the same name, and made reference to the headlines accounting the explosive rupture of her affair with singer Zizi Possi. In 1982, she had another hit with “Simples Carinho” (João Donato/Abel Silva), included in the 1983 same-titled LP. Maria Bethânia, who had recorded “Gota de Sangue” in her Mel LP (1979), re-recorded “Fogueira” (1983), which was recorded by Ângela Ro Ro in the same year for the Simples Carinho LP. A Vida é Mesmo Assim (1984) had success with the title track. Besides her participation in the Songbook series (Lumiar), she recorded the following solo LPs/CDs: Eu Desatino (1985), Prova de Amor (1988), Nosso Amor ao Armagedon (Ao Vivo) (1993), and Acertei no Milênio (2000). In 1996, Barão Vermelho had a hit with the re-recording of “Amor, Meu Grande Amor.” In the same year, Polygram reissued in CD the 1982 LP Simples Carinho. In 1997, Eldorado reissued in CD the 1988 LP Prova de Amor.

Did Zeca get paid for doing this cover?

This artist has a very unusual voice, for sure. Interesting and of note is the fact that on the Joao Donato “Donatural” DVD, Donato says in an interview that no one can sing “Simples Carinho” like Angela, there simply is no one else who can do it the way it needs to be done. Joao said he has tried many times to sing it himself and cannot…! And over twenty years later, after recording the title on this album, she sings it live again on the “Donatural” DVD.

I saw there was something wrong with the cover, because I know this LP very well, since I searched hard for this one because of the Donato´s title-song “Simples Carinho” – a cool modern bolero.

The album sometimes sounds too “1982” with its electronic arrangements, but the bluesy feel of Angela saves everything.

The Jazzman,

It was only a joke. zecalouro was not born in 1983.

Actually, some bird owners have trained parrots for use on such endeavors and they get paid for a work such like this cover artwork.

Cheers, zeca
