Hello, Good Evening! I really like the albums released by companies or governments departments with special purposes. Sometimes, when recorded by known artists, they are part of their discography and really above the average, perhaps they are more creative when not connected with record companies matters. When not credited musicians that are assembled for the recording session, the results are not always good. This one is an exception, it is really nice and also one of the most obscure albums I have ever seen.
This is Rio, Sol e Alegria | O Samba e a Musica (no date), for Codil Ritmos, specially issued for Secretaria de Turismo do Estado da Guanabara. I do not know the release date and musicians, the only hint available is the name of Levy Neves, Secretario de Turismo do Estado da Guanabara, which is responsible for the back cover message written in Portugues and translated to English and another language that I could not identify. The cover artwork alone worth the admission price and this album was probably issued to receive tourists in Rio or promote tourism outside of Brazil. I'm copy and pasting the English message available on back cover, truly amazing, as follows:
01 - Ensaio da Escola Batucada
02 - Lamento da Lavadeira (Monsueto / Nilo Chagas / João Violão)
03 - Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 - Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
05 - Queimada (Messias Santos Jr.)
06 - Samba de Verão (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
07 - Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
08 - Samba Pro Pedrinho (Walter Santos)
09 - Upa Neguinho (Edu Lobo / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri)
10 - Birimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 - Bom Tempo (Chico Buarque)
12 - Mascarada (Zé Keti / Élton Medeiros)
