Neusa Maria - A Melhor Cantora de 1956 (1957)

I like these celebration albums released by the old Brazilian record labels, perhaps it is my collector’s side that drags me into this type of records. Here we go on Sinter’s celebration of the 6th anniversary of the first Brazilian LP release in 1951 and instead of making a compilation with several artists, Sinter released a compilation of the acclaimed Neusa Maria, a Brazilian singer that I had the chance to know at Loronix with the help of the great Mr. E. Let’s see.

This is Neusa Maria – A Melhor Cantora de 1956 (1957), for Sinter. Neusa Maria was elected by Jornal O Globo as “Detentora do Disco de Ouro” and by Club dos Cronistas do Disco as “A Melhor do Disco em 1956”. Two great credentials for a great singer that released few and very hard to find albums, most of them in the 10-inch format. Such like this one. Tracks include:

01 – Nunca Jamais (L. Guerrero / Vrs. Nelson Ferreira) Bolero
02 – Que Será Será (Jay Livingston / Evans / Vrs. Nadir Corte Real) Valsa
03 – Culpada (Ivan Pires / Orlando Belsoli) Samba
04 – Siga (Fernando Lobo / Hélio Guimarães) Samba
05 – Arrivederci Roma (Rascel / Gariner / Giovannini / Vrs. Julio Nagib) Bolero
06 – 31 de Dezembro (Fernando Lobo / Evaldo Ruy) Samba
07 – Última Canção (Guilherme Augusto Pereira) Fox-slow
08 – Decepção (Ibrahim Sued / Mário Jardim) Samba


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao amigo Andreas e ao Milan ele pode ser buscado no Parallel Realities.

Hello, Good Evening! Nelson Motta said one day that Brazil is essentially a country of Divas. I agree with Nelson Motta, if you browse our collection you will see there are more girls than boys available. This is not a matter of preference; it is just how things are. I thought we had reached a plateau in terms of New Brazilian singers release, but Mr. E. came this week with a new one that I never heard before and probably many Loronixers did not. Believe me, she is really great. Thanks once again Mr. E.

This is Neusa Maria – Mensagem (1959), for RCA Victor. I have been trying to understand why nobody had mention Vasilíki Purchio – Neusa Maria real name – before at Loronix. She released several 78rpms; starting in the mid 40’s and ending in 1960 with a last self titled LP. Neusa Maria was born in Sao Paulo city and was a daughter of an Italian family, she moved to Rio de Janeiro in 1945 to record is first album at Continental and had a very successful singer for more than two decades. Neusa Maria has a not credited orchestra accompaniment at Mensagem, which is probably the orchestra directed by RCA Victor. Tracks include:

01 – Mensagem (Cícero Nunes / Aldo Cabral)
02 – A Banca do Distinto (Billy Blanco)
03 – Quem Foi (Nestor de Hollanda / Jorge Tavares)
04 – Se Tudo Acabar (Paulo Menezes / Gerson Gonçalves)
05 – Se Queres Saber (Peterpan)
06 – Odeio-te Meu Amor (Adelino Moreira)
07 – O Sorriso do Paulinho (Gastão Viana / Mário Rossi)
08 – Quem Sou Eu (Dolores Duran / Ribamar (1))
09 – Aperto de Mão (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Horondino Silva “Dino” / Augusto Mesquita)
10 – Porque e Para Que (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Fernando César)
11 – De Conversa Em Conversa (Lúcio Alves / Haroldo Barbosa)
12 – Na Noite Em Que Te Vi (Geraldo Serafim / Newton Castro)
