Rouxinol Com Trio Guanabarino - O Cavaleiro De Durango / Ómé Tá Do Lado (ENIR compacto)

Rouxinol Com Trio Guanabarino - O Cavaleiro De Durango / Ómé Tá Do Lado (ENIR compacto)

This artist is a total mystery. There are a few things that I know, thanks to knowledgeable friends in the forró community.

1) Forró singles, also called compactos, are generally rarer than LPs. These were sent out to Brazilian radio stations, most likely to promote artists or tours. It is believed that they were never sold in stores.

2) This particular single by Rouxinol Com Trio Guanabarino was probably recorded in the 1960s. Compactos became popular during that time period as 78rpm records were being phased out.  Interestingly, most Brazilian compactos are at 33 1/3 speed and not 45rpm like many North American and European 45s.

3) My friends who collect forró are not immediately familiar with Rouxinol Com Trio Guanabarino or this particular single, so if you can shed some light on this mystery artist, that would be welcome!
