Sonia Lemos - Sonia Lemos e Sua Viola Enluarada (1968)

I read today at CBox a message by The Emperor Klessius Leao asking for a LP. Just below, Arara Azul wrote that Klessius, The Emperor, was absolutely right. Well, with two legends saying that this record is essential to Loronix, let’s see why.

Meet Sonia Lemos - Sonia Lemos e Sua Viola Enluarada (1968), for Philips. Sonia Lemos started her career in 1967, releasing a EP with Geraldo Vandre songs recording this release one year later. For reasons that I could not search, Sonia made a seven years recording hiatus, releasing 7 Domingos for Chantecler in 1975, with a cover showing her full face, really beautiful such like this one. I'm asking for additional help to The Emperor and Arara Azul, they should come later to share more details about Sonia Lemos. Tracks include:

01 - Maria da Favela (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 - Zero à Esquerda (José Orlando)
03 - Manias (Flávio Cavalcanti / Celso Cavalcanti)
04 - Pelas Ruas do Recife (Novelli / Paulo Sergio Valle / Martinho da Vila)
05 - Saia do Caminho (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
06 - Pequeno Samba Para Uma Saudade Grande (Nonato Buzar)
07 - O Samba Que Eu Gosto (Silveira / Dalton Medeiros)
08 - Ao Voltar do Samba (Sinval Silva)
09 - Faço o Amor Não Faço a Festa (Taiguara)
10 - Onde Andou Você (Rildo Hora / Gracindo Jr.)
11 - Viola Enluarada (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
12 - Cidade Pequenina (Roberto Martins / Caetano Veloso)

There are quite few strange bedfellows in the songwriting credits for this album. However, Martinho da Vila in a frevo partnership sounded a bit too wonderful to be true.

Not so. I went out and checked at www.discosdobrasil.com. Track 4, "Pelas Ruas do Recife", should be credited to Marcos Valle, Novelli and Paulo Sergio Valle.

Cidade Pequenina is by Caetano and Roberto Menescal. Slightly absurd, but true.

Love those legs!!! I have the other LP, "Sete Domingos," and it's a very "samba-de-raiz" oriented album with some forro thrown in as well. Her voice is definitely up to par with her looks....whatever happened to her?

"Cidade Pequenina" is such a wonderful tune....I grew up with the great version by Fafa de Belem on her 1977 "Agua" LP, and later discovered another sweet rendition by Silvio Cesar on his self-titled 1972 album.

Zeca,

Obrigado por aceitar minha sugestão de postar esse álbum. Espero também poder colaborar com alguma coisa do meu acervo que você(s) não tenha(m). Será? rs

Abração!

Zeca,

Só uma retificação: a música "Pelas Ruas do Recife" é só de Marcos Valle/Paulo Sérgio Valle e Novelli. Martinho da Vila "entrou de gaiato". rs

Abraço!

K.

PS>mas será que o nome dele entrou nos créditos do LP?

Does anybody know who is the male duet partner on "Onde andou voce"?
Composer Rildo Hora is normaly not a singer and a "gaita" is not heard.
