My schedule ended a little bit earlier today and for my happiness, and perhaps everybody, I was downtown close to some old vinyl shops that I don’t visit as often as the ones in Copacabana. This album was the outcome of my visit, taken on really bad condition, but with a price that I could afford, a real bargain. I left the store immediately and took my place direction with a smile on my face, I never saw this cover artwork and my hope to find this album was lost months ago. We have here the last album recorded by the Brazilian singer and composer Dolores Duran, released in 1959, months before her passing in October 1959. This is truly a great find and an historical album. Let’s see.
This is Dolores Duran – Este Norte e Minha Sorte (1959), for Copacabana, featuring a whole session dedicated to Baiao, a music style from Brazil Northeast, very popular in the 50’s. With a couple of spins, this is so far the best Baiao album I have ever heard and Dolores Duran delivers an always-nice performance, no matter the style. The repertoire features several Dolores Duran compositions with Francisco Anizio, the well-known Brazilian artist and humorist Chico Anisio. I could not resist selecting 01 – Te Cuida Zeca for Loronix Preview Center. Dolores Duran has the accompaniment of a not credited Conjunto Regional, delivering lots of Baiao percussion and accordion player. Tracks include:
01 – Te Cuida Zeca (Miguel Gustavo)
02 – Saudade Ingrata (Ted Moreno / Claudionor Nascimento)
03 – Prece de Vitalina (Francisco Anizio / Dolores Duran)
04 – Minha Toada (Édson França / Dolores Duran)
05 – Tá Nascendo Fio (Francisco Anizio / Haydée de Paula)
06 – Zefa Cangaceira (Francisco Anizio)
07 – Quando se Tem Amor (Altamiro Carrilho / Armando Nunes)
08 – Não Se Avexe Não (Francisco Anizio / Haydée de Paula)
09 – Êsse Norte É Minha Sorte (Miguel Gustavo / Ruy Duarte)
10 – Quase Louco (Victor Simon)
