I’m back. Samba Saturday was postponed one single post and your wait really worth. This is a nice find. Before taking, I want to warn for the quality of this ripping. It is not clean; this album has 51 years and was found on a really bad condition. The sound is scratch sometimes and there are some few jumps. Take it from a historical perspective. This is an album recorded in 1957 by a real Escola de Samba and real Escola de Samba people. It is a journey to Brazilian Carnaval in the late 50’s. 50 years ago.

This is Academicos do Salgueiro – Ai Vem o Samba (1957), for Musidisc. Acadêmicos do Salgueiro is a traditional Escola de Samba in Rio de Janeiro. Tracks Ensaio de Ritmo Nr. 1 and Nr. 2 are “batucadas” with no lyrics, the others tunes are compositions that we never heard before, composed by Academicos do Salgueiro songwriters. Sorry, there is an exception, track 05 – Esquentando a Cuica, do not have lyrics, but a performance of Cuica, this unique instrument with a very beautiful sound. The cover artwork speaks by itself.

Tracks include:

01 – Ensaio de Ritmo Nº 1
02 – Assim Não É Amor (Eden Silva / Geraldo Jacques / Nilo Moreira)
03 – Falam de Mim (Eden Silva / Noel Rosa de Oliveira / Aníbal da Silva)
04 – Não Interessa (Eden Silva / Nilo Moreira / Aidno Sá)
05 – Esquentando a Cuíca
06 – Não Tenho Alegria (Eden Silva / Nilo Moreira / Waldemar da Silva)
07 – Obra de Deus (Eden Silva / Aníbal da Silva / Oldemar Magalhães)
08 – Felicidade É Uma Quimera (Eden Silva / Aníbal da Silva)
09 – Rosa Maria (Eden Silva / Aníbal da Silva)
10 – Ensaio de Ritmo Nº 2
11 – Desperta Vila Isabel (Eden Silva / Aníbal da Silva)
12 – Sol da Liberdade (Eden Silva / Nilo Moreira / Emanoel Gitahy)
