Single of the Day - "Flora Purim: Flóra"

Single of the Day
Flora Purim: "Adeus Maria Fulô/Jardim de Amor e Paz" (Farroupilha) 1965

This is the only single recorded by Flora Purim for the longtime-defunct São Paulo-based Farroupilha label, founded by the Conjunto Farroupilha. Its tracks were never reissued nor included in any compilation, since the master tape seems to have been destroyed in a fire.
The surname Purim is omitted; and her first name is typedas "Flóra" (sic).
"Adeus Maria Fulõ" (a famous baião written by Sivuca & Humberto Teixeira), included on Sde A, is mistitled "Maria Fulô" and credited only to Sivuca.
Airto Moreira's "Jardim de Amor e Paz..." appears on Side B.
