This is a really hard to find Lana Bittencourt LP, Lana Bittencourt – Intimamente (1958), for Columbia, probably her debut LP. I’m happy to make this post, since Lana was “revealed” at Loronix with the album MusicalScope and since then, several friends came to my mailbox saying that Lana was forgotten on their memories and Loronix provided a revival of Lana on their minds.

Very strong statement, but with Lana Bittencourt there are extremes, several loyal fans and those ones that did not take a time already for her singing. No matter what is your position, take a time to hear this LP, a very early Lana Bittencourt work that worth a try. Tracks include:

01 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você
02 – Esquecimento
03 – Porque É
04 – Quem Se Humilha
05 – Desistência
06 – Quero Ir à Bahia
07 – A Vontade de Morrer Voltou Toda
08 – Ave Maria
09 – Haja o Que Houver
10 – Rua da Minha Cidade
11 – Prece
12 – Tô Só

Perfect match: Loronixer request + out of print LP + LP is good + available at zecalouro’s ark = POST. This post comes from this equation, zecalouro likes to run over recommendations and they are very useful to Loronix.

zecalouro presents Lana Bittencourt – Sambas do Rio (1960), all songs composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Antonio, appearing intercalated, as you can see at the track list.

Nice early 60’s Samba LP full of that huge brass and string orchestral arrangements very common in the 50’s. The cover is cool, with a landscape of Rio de Janeiro showing Pao de Acucar mountain, probably taken from Niteroi, anyway. Tracks include:

01 – Amor Amor (Luiz Antonio)
02 – Longe e o Ceu (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
03 – Poema das Maos (Luiz Antonio)
04 – Corcovado (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
