Guimaraes e Seu Conjunto - Dancando com Papai Noel (1959)

Hello! Good Evening! This is the perfect example of a cover artwork that worth the entire album, no matter the music available inside. I have been looking at this cover the whole day and I cannot stop laugh on each new finding, just a couple of examples: 1) Why the guy is fixing the Christmas tree while Papai Noel (Santa Claus) is dancing with his wife?! What is the feeling of the daughter when she looks at her mother dancing with Papai Noel? I think she is astonished and proud of her. And what a weird Papai Noel they found to make this cover, thin, tall and with an unusual reclined position. Anyway, let's see what Guimaraes e Seu Conjunto delivers in terms of Christmas songs.

This is Guimaraes e Seu Conjunto - Dancando com Papai Noel (1959), for Internacional, featuring instrumental renditions of Brazilian and international Christmas songs in the Para Dancar style. I found this album inside the envelope and I'm very happy to be the first to spin it for the first time after 49 years. Tracks include:

01 - Noite Santa Silenciosa (Franz Gruber)
02 - Jingle Bells (Tradicional)
03 - Papai Noel (Irany de Oliveira / Edel Ney)
04 - Natal das Crianças (Blecaute)
05 - Lá Vem Papai Noel (Irany de Oliveira)
06 - Papai Noel (Heitor dos Prazeres)
07 - Boas Festas (Assis Valente)
08 - Natal Branco (Irving Berlin)
