Guio de Morais e Seu Conjunto - Gente Que diz de Balanco (1964)

Continental PPL 12131

I thought that it would be a good idea to complete Guio de Morais discography with the album from 1964 which was originally presented on Loronix ten years ago.
Well, here it is in form of a Loronix transfer. Zeca's text about it you may read on Órfãos do Loronix where it is reprinted.

The compositions are:

01. Só Vou de Balanço (João Roberto Kelly)
02. Gente Que Diz (Guio de Morais)
03. Balanço Zona Sul (Tito Madi)
04. Ela É Carioca (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05. O Samba Deu Um Avanço (Célio Ferreira / Rolando Ferreira)
06. Samb'andando (Sérgio Carvalho / Paulo Bruce)
07. Tudo de Você (Paulo Sérgio Valle / Marcos Valle)
08. Quem Sabe É o Mar (Paulinho / Barbosa da Silva)
09. Samba Travesso (Norival Reis / Harli Teixeira)
10. Tão Só (Guio de Morais)
11. Carnaval Triste (Sérgio Carvalho / Paulo Bruce)
12. Barraco do José (Carlos Fortes)

BALANÇO

TRACK LIST by Brazilliance:
Although being a really enjoyable album offering groovy performances, I find it quite mysterious because the track list is wrong wherever it appears online wether as download or listing. Interstingly, only very few remarks on this can be found like in the comments on Órfãos do Loronix

Unfortunately, the original vinyl or its original art work is hardly available which would be the best way to check. I never saw this album being offered on Mercado Livre or elsewhere which made me wonder if it ever existed. Surprisingly, a Japanese seller is currently showing a sold vinyl copy on his website but regrettably not showing pictures of the back cover or the vinyl itself. The picture of the front cover shows clearly a different order of song titles compared to the CD reissue, starting with Tudo de Você instead of Só Vou de Balanço. Also, the Continental logo on the original art work is a different version including the catalogue number PPL 12.131 which is missing on the CD reissue.

Obviously, the wrong track list including a song from a different album by a different group was created by sloppy work at the re-releasing label Paradise Masters:

01 – Só Vou de Balanço = Gente que diz
02 – Gente que diz = Balanço Zona Sul
03 – Balanço Zona Sul = Ela é Carioca
04 – Ela é Carioca = O Samba deu um Avanço
05 – O Samba deu um Avanço = Sambandando
06 – Samb’andando = Tudo de Você
07 – Tudo de Você = Quem Sabe é O Mar
08 – Quem Sabe é O Mar = Samba Travesso
09 – Samba Travesso = Tão Só
10 – Tão Só = Carnaval Triste
11 – Carnaval Triste = Barraco do José
12 – Barraco do José = Influência do Jazz from “Show de Bossa” by Corisco e Os Sambaloucos.

Which means “Só Vou de Balanço” is actually missing which is a pity since it’s a great tune.

At least, one thing is for sure: the flawless saxophone on Gente Que Diz de Balanço is by Moacyr Marques aka Bijú (as stated on his website.
