Margie Silva and the Bossa Novas "Bailar, Pt II" (Rendezvous Records, 1963)

This is the continuing series I will post every other day while i'm out of town, thanks to Jonathan Toubin DJ of New York Night Train

I've learned nothing about this artist or this record so far! "Bailar Pt II" has that sort of Bert Bern's latin-tinged "Twist and Shout" beat, chord progression, and builds with voices rising in pitch: "ahhhhh.... ahhhh... ahhhh..." The predecessor and aesthetic sister of "Lucy Baines"! And also in-your-face maracas all over the place... This sat in my collection for a long time before it started popping out and is now one of those signature cuts that I've never heard elsewhere. More of a pop dance oddity than a soul song but fits well enough at the parties to be included near the deep end of side B of Norton Records' "Souvenirs of the Soul Clap, Vol. 4." A unique and lively builder.

I have a feeling it was mislabeled as Pt I is the more boring instrumental side and Pt II is the vocal side...

Does anybody have any information about this record or artist?

This video is a today's installment in the New York Night Train Party Platter YouTube playlist ( Every track is recorded directly from the original 45s (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my parties, this channel is an attempt to slow down a bit and focus on one record at a time in hopes that it'll hip you to artists, tracks, and other details - and, on the most base level, give you something to listen to.

Get your enjoys,
Jonathan Toubin
