Secretária do Diabo, from 1967, is a classic crown jewel from the golden age of Abdias / Direção Artística 60s/70s CBS forró. Secretária do Diabo is considered by many to be Osvaldo Oliveira's artistic peak, featuring one of the best album covers in the history of forró. The title track was famously first recorded by Jackson do Pandeiro on O Cabra Da Peste in 1966. Fruteiro Ta Matinha (Osvaldo Oliveira – Fernando Silva) is my favorite Oliveira song. It's an exceptional example of 60s pop glory.

The Devil's Danish Modern desk reappeared on at least 2 later CBS album covers. Was the desk full of black magic? Was the desk ultimately a curse for those unlucky forró souls? Was it a coincidence that it haunted so many forró LP covers? Was it a low budget hunk of office furniture? Hopefully, Osvaldo made a reasonable deal with the man downstairs and I wonder... who ultimately ended up with the Devil's Danish Modern desk?

CBS Presents... the same desk on multiple album covers. The Devil's Desk (A Mesa Do Diabo)
