After three week of being absorbed in other urgent matters, it's business as usual. The newest package sent to us by friends Pedro & 300discos is being transferred to my PC as I write, and I have chosen as first to be posted a beautiful para dançar 10 Inch album by Juca do Acordeon, an artist so far unknown to me, filled with vintage sambas from 1956.
Unfortunately, this rarity is, as far as I know, his only career album, so I suggest to add it to your collection immediately.
Enjoy as individual tracks or as the uninterrupted sides A and B:
01. Morena Boca de Ouro (Ary Barroso)
02. Nega (Waldemar Gomes / Afonso Teixeira)
03. Leva Meu Samba (Ataulfo Alves)
04. Falsa Baiana (Geraldo Pereira)
05. A Voz do Morro (Zé Keti)
06. Molambo (Jaime Florence "Meira" / Augusto Mesquita)
07. Favela (Roberto Martins / Waldemar Silva)
08. Alguém Como Tu (José Maria de Abreu / Jair Amorim)
09. A Grande Verdade (Luis Bittencourt / Marlene)
10. Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
VINTAGE SAMBA 1956

JUCA'S REAL NAME by Bossanov:
The real name of great Juca do Acordeon is Abdalla Chalub. So he is possibly from Siro-Lebanian community of Brazil, like Tito Madi and Sergio Ricardo.
EDIT: Looks like Juca has recorded two more LPs besides this one:
1955 Ecos de 1955
1957 Tarde dancante No 2
