Índio e Seu Conjunto - Um Cavaquinho Pelas Boites (1959)

Polydor LPNG 4053

Índio do Cavaquinho e Seu Conjunto play music almost in accordance with the atmosphere displayed on the cover. I say almost, as the cover displays, beside the politically incorrect cigarette and alcohol flair, also a gentleman lighting his cigarette with a candle, a clumsiness that could have been avoided if he had bought some matches or a lighter prior to taking the lady out to dinner... Unfortunately without these, he makes a non-playboy like impression and it is noticeable that the attention of the lady is focused (rightly) upon the cavaquinho player, rather than upon her escort.

I fear that the evening has not ended as the gentleman has expected, but the music is simply beautiful and compensates it all.
