Elenco Radio Teatral - Moura Torta & Ali Baba e Os 50 Ladroes

RCA Victor 13-H2CP

Now an unexpected third album for today, this one could have been characterized as for children only, were it not for the fact that hard core Lindolfo Gaya and Zaccarias fans are more likely to be found in the grown up population.

If you understand Portuguese or if are just interested to collect every piece of music performed by the two Maestros:

Aranjos Musicais de Gaya
Zaccarias e Sua Orquestra

you will for sure enjoy:

Os Pequenos Cantores da Guanabara - Gosto do Rio (1965)

Philips P 632.763 L

For today's second promised album the same text as on the previous post applies, except that on Gosto do Rio children are singing for children and their parents. If I remember well the times when I was a child, my impression was that we, the children, were generally more attracted to music performed by adults, while our parents were melting in pleasure while children were singing, playing instruments or acting in movies.

Anyway, regardless of your current age, you will probably enjoy:

Leo Peracchi e Sua Orquestra - Walt Disney Na America do Sul (1958)

Odeon MOFB 3046

Today I have the pleasure to present two albums, both of which could (conditionally) be labeled as music for children.
The first one is Walt Disney Na America do Sul with tracks that, were it not for the Três Caballeros on the front cover, could be passed as music for adults (although not for the "adults only" public). Brilliantly performed by adults: Léo Peracchi e Sua Orquestra (with a little help from Lenita Bruno).

I have enjoyed it all as much as I still enjoy Donald Duck cartoons.

I assume that these compositions were recorded as soundtrack for the South American languages version of Disney's movies:

01. Os Quindins de Iaiá (Ary Barroso)
02. Saludos Amigos (Alô Amigos) (C. Walcott / Ned Washington / Vrs. Aloysio de Oliveira)
03. Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
04. Lake Titicaca (C. Walcott)
05. Apanhei-te Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth)
06. Três Caballeros (Esperón / Cortazar)
07. Tico-Tico No Fubá (Zequinha de Abreu)
08. Você Já Foi À Bahia? (Dorival Caymmi)
09. Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
10. Jesusita En Chihuahua (E. H. Plumb)
11. Solamente Una Vez (Agustín Lara) Léo Peracchi / Lenita Bruno
12. El Gaúcho Goofy (E. Plumb)

COMMENT by Anonymous:
I have both versions and just watched both films on DVD. This CD has Portuguese language versions of the Latin flavored songs from the films. The songs and incidental music however have the same orchestrations. So they sound almost identical, except that there is really bad distortion at times on this CD, and they over did the noise suppression just a bit, so the highs are dull and almost muddy. Other than that, there's no reason to buy it if you already have a good sounding release in English, unless you have Spanish or Portuguese speaking people in your family.
