Forró do Jackson*, the second album from Jackson do Pandeiro, collects some of Jackson's classic early 78rpms onto a handy, eight song 10" album. The 10" was later reissued as a 12" LP, with No Quebradinho (1958) removed and four different songs added from the 1950s. While Côco do Norte (1955) may be the best known song from the album, I chose a lesser know track called Cumpadre João, originally issued on 78rpm in 1958 as the b-side of Meu Enxoval. Both of these songs were available on the reissue but NOT the original 10", along with Forró Em Limoeiro (1953) and Cajueiro (1958). Confusing!
Since all of these songs were relatively short, I am uncertain why songs were swapped and removed. Copacabana Som could have easily included more material. Thanks to several reissues, Forró Do Jackson, is one of the most common Jackson Do Pandeiro albums, although the 10", pressed in the 1950s only, is scarce.
