Norberto Baldauf - Weekend no Rio Nr. 2 (1958)


The Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul is the home of renowned Brazilian artists, such as Manfredo Fest, Primo, Breno Sauer, Os Farroupilhas, Norberto Baldauf, Elis Regina, and many others. This picture is an example, published last year as a challenge; you can see Conjunto Melodico Norberto Baudalf and a very young Elis Regina. Weekend no Rio Nr. 2 is one of the first Norberto Baldauf records in the 12-inch format. Let’s see.

This is Conjunto Melodico Norberto Baldauf – Weekend no Rio Nr. 2 (1958), for Odeon, courtesy of the most solid contributor in the Para Dancar style, our friend Mauro R. V. Side A features nine songs with no tracks separation, such like the old Para Dancar records of the early 50’s released in the 10-inch format. Side B brings traditional approach with individual tracks. Tracks include:

You probably remember our last Challenge, a picture of a female singer with a group. People who tried to answer the challenge were successful on guessing the singer, Elis Regina. However, with a single exception nobody could even say the name of the group.

This posts comes to introduce you to a new Loronixer, Marcello Campos, Journalist, author of the book Week End no Rio – Cinco Decadas (e meia) de Conjunto Melodico Norberto Baldauf and a friend that comes to play an important role at Loronix, improving our knowledge of the music from the South Region of Brazil, the nest of several renowned artists.

Everybody can easily name the artists that came from that region, but nobody can say how things happened and what is the background the artists from that region had before they got famous. Marcello is the right guy to share these things that we do not know. He has a book, written in Portuguese, portraying one of those artists, Conjunto Melodico de Norberto Baldauf, which has a broaden approach of those years, with additional details on Elis Regina, Primo, among many others. The book can be purchased with Marcello though his telephone number, which is +55-51- 9833-0162 or by email,, you can optionally reach zecalouro at Caetano Rodrigues performs the role of main contributor on Marcello’s book, as several other music books in Brazil.

This is Conjunto Melodico Norberto Baldauf – Parole (1968), for Philips, the second LP of this band, active for more than 50 years. Parole is a delicious and dancing album from a group that I never had the chance to hear before, full of organ and vibes influenced by Beatles, Italian music, etc. Marcello says that Parole has the first recording of With a Little Help from my Friends, a Beatles song from the legendary album Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. I think you can get further details with Marcello and his book. Just want to warn Loronixers to stay tuned, Marcello’s collaborations are coming and it is a unique chance to improve our knowledge of the music from Brazilian South. Tracks includes:
