Carmen Miranda - A Pequena Notavel (no date)

Hello, good evening! Nice Sunday in Rio de Janeiro, a perfect weather with the sun between clouds. I had a really pleasant day with Mon, Daddy, Brothers and my other birds, Juca, Juliana, Lila, Julinha. Anyway, perfect day. Among Mom contributions, I found this one, an album that I did not know the existence that fits perfect to address a demand of many Loronixers for Carmen Miranda. Let's see.

This is Carmen Miranda - A Pequena Notavel (no date), for MIS. Although a true Brazilian popular music legend, I never found a record featuring Carmen Miranda with this kind of detail. There are several compilations available, but they are always assembled with no criterion, additional information and chronological standpoint. This one is different, released under a careful research by MIS and features Carmem Miranda backed by Pixinguinha, Benedito Lacerda, Simon Boutman, Conjunto Odeon, Barbosa Junior, Luperce Miranda and others. The recordings were taken from the years of Carmen Miranda in Brazil before she made her move to the US, with the exception of track 11 - Disseram que Voltei Americanizada. If you are among the group of many friends waiting for Carmen Miranda, the waiting is over. Tracks include:

01 - Cachorro Vira-lata (Alberto Ribeiro) - Featuring: Conjunto Regional de Benedito Lacerda (1937)
02 - Camisa Listrada (Assis Valente) - Featuring: Grupo da Odeon (1937)
03 - Eu Dei (Ary Barroso) - Featuring: Conjunto Regional (1937)
