Marina - Simples como Fogo (1979)

Hello, good evening! Since Loronix started, I got the habit of listening to at least one LP daily. Sometimes I use to hear albums that I would never consider a candidate of being posted at Loronix. I got also the habit of making the transfer to digital, no matter for Loronix or for my personal collection.

My musical preferences are diversified. I like to hear rock and also love to take albums that bring me very good memory of the past. This is Marina debut LP, an artist never released before at Loronix and a singer that I like very much. It is also an album that brings back very good memories. I want to share these memories with this album that is really different from the music we use to hear at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Marina – Simples como Fogo (1979), for WEA, the debut LP of Marina, a Brazilian singer, composer and musician with more than 20 albums released in Brazil and several successful tunes composed with Marina most regular partner, her brother and philosopher Antonio Cicero. Simples como Fogo starts with a track that worth the whole album, Marina rendition to Solidao by Dolores Duran, performed here as probably you never heard before. I’m really glad to share this album, but Simples como Fogo brings bad news, the white stripes at front and back cover. Perhaps my scanner has finally getting tired after thousand of cover scans. I hope you appreciate this album as I did today. Tracks include:

Eumir Deodato & Lindolpho Gaya - Love, Strings and Jobim | The Eloquence of Antonio Carlos Jobim (1966)

Hello, good morning! I will be out of home tonight, that’s why I’m making this extraordinary post this morning. By the way, a extraordinary post of a unusual album recorded in 1966 by Elenco with the original title as “Antonio Carlos Jobim Apresenta” and reissued in 1975 as “Love, Strings and Jobim | The Eloquence of Antonio Carlos Jobim”, a lust and cheat title with Antonio Carlos Jobim holding his violao at the beach. I said cheat title? Sure! Let’s know why!

This is Eumir Deodato & Lindolpho Gaya - Love, Strings and Jobim | The Eloquence of Antonio Carlos Jobim (1966), for Elenco, featuring a constellation of Brazilian musicians with a single and important exception, which is Antonio Carlos Jobim that did not take part of this recording session. I’ve been wondering how many friends took this album as Antonio Carlos Jobim career record across four decades. Aloysio de Oliveira and Ray Gilbert’s idea was to introduce new artists to the American audience through Antonio Carlos Jobim popularity in US. Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and Eumir Deodato were invited to write the arrangements and to be credited as main performers, which is something that never happened. I’m crediting both as main performers at this post; at least Loronix makes it as originally conceived.

Additionally, the back cover features pictures of the composers, not the musicians. Tracks include:

Marisa - Viagem (1973)

Hello, good evening! This is the mandatory and obligatory repost of the first Marisa Gata Mansa LP that I have the chance to make available at Loronix. And it has been a LOT of time; Viagem was released in 06 August 2006, three years and a few days ago. Everything changed since them, the music was available at 128Kbps on a zip file with a size of 32Mb. Now we are making it on 320Kbps on a zip file with 93Mb and additional FLAC file of 190Mb. By the way, as every new album, Viagem is also available with no Rapidshare at Loronix Happy Hour; you should not miss Happy Hour and also Marisa Gata Mansa. Let’s see.

Marisa started her career in 1954 as a jazz interpreter, releasing her first solo LP in 1959. In 1956, Marisa met Dolores Duran replacing her as a singer in Bacará, a famous nightclub in Rio de Janeiro.
