This is the debut LP of an extraordinary Brazilian singer that record only three LPs in the early 60’s and just left the scene for reasons that I could not track down. Lucienne Franco was the favorite singer of many renowned Brazilian artists, such as Ary Barroso and Luiz Bonfa. Actually, she had the chance of making her first public performance at Friend’s nightclub with Ary Barroso recommendation and a contract with TV Rio channel with the blessing of Luiz Bonfa. I read several times that Lucienne Franco is one of the best singers in Brazil, unfortunately, nobody could tell me why she retired. Let’s see.

This is Lucienne Franco – Lucienne, A Notavel (1959), for Copacanana, presented to Loronixers with a Beverly 1960 reissue. Altamiro Carrilho is in charge of production and wrote a very nice liner notes describing with details Lucienne Franco first career steps. Maestro Severino Filho is in charge of arrangements, while musicians in this session were not credited. Tracks include:

01 – Vento do Outono (N. Wanderley / Altamiro Carrilho)
02 – Dois Amigos (Ary Barroso)
03 – Diga Adeus e Se Vá (Hianto de Almeida / Macedo Neto)
04 – Nada Mudou (Severino Filho / Alberto Paz)

Taking the advantage of the enormous success and feedback given to Caetano’s last RGE compilation O Melhor da Bossa, I will pick another one sent by the same and tireless Caetano Rodrigues. Now we go with ten Bossa Nova interpretations by 5 Brazilian female singers. Let’s see.

This is Cinco Estrelas Interpretam a Bossa Nova (1963), for Copacabana, featuring Elizeth Cardoso, Marisa, Carminha Mascarenhas, Morgana and Lucienne Franco. Perhaps I’m wrong, Copacabana label did not release much records like this, since this is the first Copacabana compilation I have seen so far. Anyway, really a nice treat to hear the ladies singing Bossa Nova and also hear for the first time the voice of Carminha Mascarenhas, never released before at Loronix. I don’t need to say that this is a really hard to find album provided by Caetano Rodrigues. Tracks include:

01 – Menino Travesso (Moacir Santos / Vinicius de Moraes) – ELIZETH CARDOSO
02 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini) – MARISA
03 – Ciúme Teu Ma (Walter / Joluz) – CARMINHA MASCARENHAS
04 – A Flor (Vera Brasil / De Rosa) – MORGANA
05 – Da Rosa Que Nasceu Nosso Amor (Baden Powell / Heloísa Setta) – LUCIENNE FRANCO
06 – Céu e Mar (Johnny Alf) – MARISA GATA MANSA
07 – Imenso Amor (Luis Bonfá / Maria Helena Toledo) – LUCIENNE FRANCO
08 – Cravo Vermelho (Pernambuco / Sergio Malta) – MORGANA
09 – Nós e o Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) – CARMINHA MASCARENHAS
10 – Seu Olhar (Laís Antunes) – ELIZETH CARDOSO
