Song No. 29 — Dói, Dói, Dói | João Mello (1960)

Aracy de Almeida - Samba com Aracy de Almeida (1960) a

Dói, Dói, Dói was introduced in early 1960 by Aracy de Almeida as a-side to Pra Que, shortly before Vera Lúcia issued the song as a-side to Leva-me Contigo. Both versions were arranged by Carlos Monteiro de Souza, and both singers included the song on their concurrent albums, with Vera Lúcia’s published a bit earlier.

João MelloThe song was only a minor success and vanished four years after its debut and about nine recordings.

A timelessly modern version was recorded by the highly talented Sandra, who was tragically killed in a car crash a few days after she received an award for her excellent debut album A Voz Balanco… Samba 35 mm. Except for the song Nuvem, arranger and tenor saxophonist Marco Ruppi aka Marko Rupe reutilized all arrangements from Sandra’s A Voz Balanco… Samba 35 mm the next year on the album Sambalanço credited as Orquestra Moderna de Sambas.

  1. Unfortunaly the track is not on Joao Mello`s great LP “A Bossa do Balanco”, but he recorded it in 2000 for his CD “Coracao so faz bater” (Som Livre).

  2. I really dig the version of “Doi, Doi, Doi” by Isaura Garcia. Just a sublime bossa groove. Very nice stuff. Keep doing what you are doing man, love this music. Makes me happy to be alive!
