Linda Rodrigues - Companheiras da Noite (1961)
Neon light atmosphere!
When I looked into the contents of the newest package sent to us by Pedro & 300discos (which is being downloaded to my PC as I write) I almost jumped up from my chair when I noticed that it contains Linda Rodrigues' only career album, Companheiras da Noite, which was featured on my Santa Claus list since the moment I created one.
If you are eager to know any of the spicy details about the life and career of Linda Rodrigues, don't even try to find them on the back cover as, apart from the track list, it contains only one crucial fact: Orq. e Conj. Reg.: Guerra Peixe, but that you already know by reading this text.
Try this link instead.
If you are interested in her 78 rpm recordings which count around 30, I can partially help with 1/3 by pointing to another reality in which two compilations of her 78 rpm tracks are located, (with renewed links, but also with a printing mistake on one of the covers).
While sorting out the so far created confusion, relax enjoying Linda' rendition of these compositions, where on 2/3 of them she was one of the composers:
01. Lama (Paulo Marques / Aylce Chaves)
02. Negue (Adelino Moreira / Enzo Almeida Passos)
03. Pedra No Caminho (Aldacir Louro / Linda Rodrigues)
04. Tião (Valdemar de Abreu "Dunga" / Jair Amorim)
05. Documento (Aldacir Louro / Linda Rodrigues)
06. Pó do Asfalto (Aldacir Louro / Linda Rodrigues / J. Portela)
07. Companheiras Da Noite (Linda Rodrigues / William Duba / Aylce Chaves)
08. Tenho Moral (Linda Rodrigues / Castelo)
09. Cigarra Noturna (Linda Rodrigues / Aldacir Louro / Genival Melo)
10. Escondida (Luis Arcaraz / Vrs. Martha de Almeida)
11. Final de Nosso Drama (Linda Rodrigues / Aldacir Louro)
12. Aquelas Mãos (Linda Rodrigues / Aldacir Louro)
