Here we go on another special post celebrating Caetano birthday. I'm confident that Loronixers will be amazed with this one. This album brings together several things Caetano likes, such as: Bossa Nova, instrumental music and airplanes! Yes, Caetano knows everything about airplanes, he can say by heart details on models, capacity, dimension, fuel consumption, etc. Let's see.
This is Fogueira Tres - Varig 1927 - 1987 (1987), no Label, a promotional album recorded by Fogueira Tres to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Varig Airlines. The music is truly amazing and the production is very sophisticated with celebration logo on side A and Varig logo on side B, as you can check by the images and click it to enlarge. I'm in a rush today and I could not check if Fogueira Tres tracks were never released before, anyway, it is a really nice assembly that you should take by the music and scans of covers and vinyl.

Varig has sponsored a lot of records. I believe that they were not sold on the stores, Varig just made them available to their passengers as exclusive offers. This makes these records almost impossible to find. One that's legendary is Rogério Duprat's "Ritmos no Ar" (64). Now here's a challenge for the mighty Caetano! :-) Happy birthday to our guru!

Nice music, thanks to Varig.
But I think the record was produced for their 60th aniversary, otherwise the dates on the cover are wrong: 1927-1987, to me it is 60 years.

and while we're with airline promotional albums, do you know or could you possibly spot the Marcos Valle & Azimuth promotional record done for Cruzeiro in 1972?
i have been hunting this one down but unsuccessfully so far. it seems to be quite rare and should be a quite interesting production since this was a good period in Marcos Valle's carrer.

This is already available, very recently, here.
