Marisa Barroso, Elza Laranjeira, Julie Joy...

Marisa Barroso in red...

This is also a 1962 extended-play and not an album. It's not exactly amazing except for the fact that it is extremely rare and the actual album from which this EP was taken didn't carry photos of Elza Laranjeira with Tom & Vinícius on its cover.  
Mr. Richard Fisk, que nunca cantou em sua vida, vendeu milhares de LPs pela Chantecler...
Julie Joy gravou pouco, mas apareceu muito em capas de revistas como 'O Cruzeiro'.
10" de Dolores Duran, onde ela canta até em Esperanto. 
George Freedman, Nick Savoia e Danny Dallas dividem LP da RGE em 1961.
Laila Curi e seu incrível LP cantado em árabe, 'Mil e uma noites' da RGE.
Cascatinha & Inhana - 1955.
Agostinho dos Santos nos tempos da Polydor em dose dupla para saber qual resolução ficou melhor.
a Polydor fazia capas sensacionais. 'O Samba em Pessôa, Aracy de Almeida', vendo-se o monumento erigido em homenagem à Noël Rosa em Vila Izabel...
contra-capa do LP de Carolina Maria de Jesus pela RCA Victor.

Noite Ilustrada's very 1st album for Mocambo... 'Cara de boboca' (Silly face)
cool Tito Madi.
this is almost unbelievable... but it's true.
'Gone with the wind' revisited.
There's nothing really amazing about this cover, except that the album is very good in itself.  And I sort of like Wilson Simonal's yellow sweater and his blue pants.

a Capitol high fidelity album by Pelé.
1964 RCA production of TV Excelsior's weekly 'Times Square'.
Miécio Caffé's 1962's Moreira da Silva's 'O Tal malandro'.
What's so amazing about this cover? The 50s & 60s trophies Duo Guarujá received during their career. 'Chico Viola' (the 2nd from left) and 'Roquette Pinto' (extreme right) were the best.
Luis Bordon with more trophies...
Dupla Ouro & Prata (Duo Gold & Silver) had a string of hits between 1958 and 1960. Here's their Greatest Hits album for RGE.
At 'Francisco Petronio recordando Francisco Alves' one can really see how the Chico Viola trophy granted by Radio & TV Record looked like. Every time a singer would appear at weekly 'Astros do Disco', he or she would be given a small golden record like the one on the right of this trophy. At year's end TV Record would choose the 30 best singles of the previous year and give this particular handsome trophy as an award for the sales.
This is actually an extended-play sleeve... but it's really fantastic... Enrico Simonetti was known for his partiality to red socks... and maybe that's exactly what he wanted when he proposed to be photographed sitting at a traffic lights control box. Isn't it crazy?
What's so amazing about this album cover? Maybe because it's so rare... it recorded by Raul Sampaio, who had a major hit in 1961 with 'Quem eu quero não me quer' (She whom I want doesn't want me... she who wants me I sent it away...). Raul had been around since the late 1940s having been part of Herivelto Martins' Trio de Ouro. He then moved to São Paulo in the late 1950s and started writing tunes with Benil Santos for independent label RGE. Suddenly he hit big when his single 'Quem eu quero não me quer' went to #1. He didn't have a follow up though and this album is sort of rare.
What's so amazing? I guess the whole attitude is amazing. See the stairway coming from nowhere? She's all right but what the hell is he doing lighting a cigarette in the middle of the whole business? His hair cut is special too.
I'll ask again: what's so amazing about that album cover? Is very name: Os novos reis do iê-iê-iê! First there was rock'n'roll in Brazil which was called 'rock'. Then, there were so many dance crazes like the twist, hully-gully etc. that the word 'rock' was completely forgotten. By mid-1965, The Beatles' film 'A hard day's night' was 'translated' as 'Os reis do ié-ié-ié'. Suddenly, Brazilians had a new name for 'rock'n'roll'... it was called 'ié-ié-ié' or 'iê-iê-iê' and apparently came from the song 'She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah'.... Yeah, yeah, yeah translated as 'ié-ié-ié'... and that's all she wrote.
