Dolores Duran - Dolores Duran Viaja (1955)

Hello, good afternoon! I will try to make two updates today, but if I fail, this album starts an interval of some days with no updates. I will be taking care of my move, finally scheduled for tomorrow at 10:30 in the morning.

The change will be made by a specialized company that charges the total hours spent to accomplish the change. For this monitoring, I developed an application that sends from my mobile phone to Loronix dedicated server the GPS coordinates of where I am in intervals of 5 minutes. These coordinates are stored on a mysql database and using Google Maps API, these coordinates are plot in a map, making it possible to watch the move in real time, including the route made to the future place.

Anyway, I would like to send a big THANK YOU to Mr. E. for his understanding of my process and the great help he made putting his professional skills in place to transfer this really rare album to the digital format. Mr. E. is my benchmark on vinyl ripping and cover artwork restoration. The day Mr. E decided to open a music blog, his site will be the KING and the benchmark Loronix will follow. Thanks Mr. E. Let's see.

This is Dolores Duran - Dolores Duran Viaja (1955), for Copacabana, in the 10-inch format, which is the first Dolores Duran LP. Mr. E. said he never had the chance to see this album before, so I'm confident to say this is a really rare release. Dolores Duran follows the concept of singing a repertoire with songs from several countries on different languages, which is something that she excels. Orquestra Copacabana backs Dolores Duran and the arrangements are in charge of Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and Mozart Brandao.

Dolores Duran Viaja has music from Chile, Canada, USA, Austria, Italy, Spain and Brazil, including the first recording of a song with lyrics in Esperanto, 05 - Nigraj Manteloj. Tracks include:

01 - Sinceridad (G. Perez)
02 - Ma Cabane Au Canada (C. Cohn / M. Brocey / L. Gasté)
03 - Kaiser Waltzer (J. Strauss)
04 - No Other Love (R. Rodgers / O. Hammerstein II)
05 - Nigraj Manteloj (Coimbra) (R. Ferrão / J. Galhardo / O. Baena)
06 - Vieni Sul Mar (Tradicional)
07 - Ojos Verdes (Valverde / León / Quiroga)
08 - Canção da Volta (Antônio Maria / Ismael Netto)
