Steve Bernard e Seu Conjunto Com Valeria e Joab - Ritmo Espetacular (1962)

RCA Victor BBL 1193

Steve Bernard's Ritmo Espetacular from '62, after the shortest possible time that elapsed since I put it on my Santa Claus list, ready to be presented here as another courtesy of Pedro & 300discos.

Here we have Steve again with vocal soloists Valéria and Joab Teixeira in a rhythmical para dançar opus, suitably visually described on the front cover.

The back cover text written by Elmo Barros offers some additional facts about his career and life as well as a detail about Steve's nationality: Húngaro de nascimento e cosmopolita de espírito.

The compositions, perfect for dance and listening pleasure:

01. Roda de Samba (Edgardo Luis / Álvaro Franco) com Joab
02. Sombras de Amor (Reginaldo Bessa / Steve Bernard) com Valéria
03. Bailalo Chiquita (L. Reco / E. Kermont / D. Gallego) com Joab
04. Menino Não Chora (Don Al Bibi) com Joab
05. Moeda Quebrada (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa) com Valéria
06. The Peppermint Twist (J. Dee / H. Clover) com Joab
07. Sixteen Tons (Merle Travis) com Joab
08. O Menino Desce o Morro (Vera Brasil / De Rosa) com Valéria
09. Ya Ya (Robinson) com Joab
10. Nós E O Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
