Os Bossais - Os Bossais (1963)

The first Roberto Menescal EP, Conjunto Bossa Nova - Bossa e Bossa released yesterday took everybody by surprise. The young faces of Roberto Menescal and his band mates were amazing, a very hard to find LP provided by the great friend of Loronix Caetano Rodrigues. A mystery was left, the identification of the faces available at the cover, completed solved by Anonymous in a matter of hours. Take a look at that post comments to check the whole and amazing personnel for that EP.

In the EP spirit, this is another release by Caetano that will also take many friends by surprise, meet Os Bossais - Os Bossais (1963), for Audio Fidelity, a vocal group that apparently had just released this EP and formed by Claudette Soares, Alaide Costa, Pedrinho Mattar, Mathias Mattos and Antonio Pinheiro, also very hard to find and a collectors item. I will never get tired to say many thanks to Caetano for another fantastic release. Tracks include:

01 - Quem Quiser Encontrar o Amor (Geraldo Vandré / Carlos Lyra)
02 - Minha Saudade (João Donato / João Gilberto)
03 - Barquinho (Ronaldo Boscoli / Roberto Menescal)
04 - Marcha da Quarta Feira de Cinzas (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
