Dou-te um doce


in Terra Prometida, 1986
Sempre que o amor me quiser
in Lusitânia, 1984

para ti

Anoiteceu, meu amor
o dia desceu no mar
escrevo o teu nome na areia
o tempo parou por instantes
vagueavas sozinho na praia
juntei-me a ti, mergulhei no teu silêncio mágico
lentamente

Anoiteceu, meu amor, pressinto-te perto
corro descalça por ti, a lua poisou-te nos olhos
e soltei os cavalos do vento, demos as mãos
caminhámos num abraço eterno
tão ao longe

Encontrei-te no mar, percorri-te de cor
nos teus braços de amor adormeci
embarquei no milagre que há em ti
perdi-me contigo no silêncio do cais...

Amanheceu, meu amor
por dentro nasceu o sol
sobes por mim devagar, procuras o céu no meu corpo
num sorriso os teus olhos encontram nos meus
mais uma estrela que se acendeu
em ti deslizo mansamente

Qual é coisa qual é ela? - O álbum das adivinhas - 1978/1979






as adivinhas:

a escola

a aldeia
o fotógrafo
a fábrica
o mar
o comboio
a caixeira
o pastor
o circo
o pescador
o sol
o pedreiro






align=
as músicas:

a escola

a aldeia
o fotógrafo
a fábrica
o mar
o comboio
a caixeira
o pastor
o circo
o pescador
o sol
o pedreiro



 “Morno, frio, quente, a escaldar... é uma adivinha, muitas adivinhas, para adivinhar...” Foi assim que nasceu este disco. Trabalho de brincar. Criança que não deixei, não deixámos de ser, olhos abertos para o que se passa em volta, atentos. Porque fomos três na equipa inicial: o Luís Pedro, o Zé da Ponte e eu. Muitos mais depois. A Lena Águas, os meninos que com ela brincaram de cantar, o Carlos, o Rui, o Francisco, a Ana, o João, a Betinha, a Micá e todos osa outros que trabalharam para que as Adivinhas fossem disco, este disco. “Tens que escrever umas palavras”, disseram-me. Palavras? Não. Vou antes escrever: pescador, caixeira, mar, sol, pedreiro, fotógrafo, fábrica, comboio, pastor, aldeia, circo, escola. Pensando no trabalho de cada um, parando um pouco para olhar o sol e o mar, participando, afinal, na vida de todas as pessoas e de todos os dias, surgiram as soluções para as adivinhas, tão fáceis de adivinhar. Dirão alguns que não é um disco infantil. Porque não foi ao Jardim da Celeste, não andou de mão dada com As pombinhas da Catrina nem namorou a Rosinha do meio... é verdade que às Pombinhas da Catrina preferimos o maro sol, e o retrato do José, de fatiota nova. Que trocámos o Jardim da Celeste pelo circo, pela aldeia, pela escola, pela fábrica. Que pusemos de lado a Rosinha do meio para cantarmos o pescador, o pedreiro, a caixeira, o pastor. O Luís Pedro, o Zé da Ponte, e eu com eles, entendemos assim o nosso – vosso disco infantil. E ficaremos felizes se todos, crianças e adultos, cantarem connosco “a batida bem certinha do coração do operário”, ou o arco-íris que faz o sol quando pelas nuvens se mete ( e só cores são sete!) ou a vida da caixeira que “dobra, desdobra, busca e rebusca, conta e reconta e torna a contar”.
Qual é coisa, qual é ela?” é o disco infantil que todos “vivemos” dia a dia.

Robin Geoffrey Cable, nosso produtor e engenheiro de som (1982/1986)

Robin Geoffrey Cable was well known for his engineering work with Elton John (‘Your Song’) and Carly Simon (‘You’re So Vain’).
* * * * *
produziu   Songs of Love and Hate, de Leonard Cohen... :))

e foi produtor em:  "Larry Lurex" songs, "Nevermore" e  "Funny How Love Is" with Queen

additional production with Queen and Roy Thomas Baker on "Queen II"

***********
produtor e engenheiro de som em  Far Beyond These Castle Walls, de Chris De Burgh

Robin Geoffrey Cable (engineer and producer, notably for Queen (Queen II), Genesis (Trespass), Van Der Graaf Generator (Pawn Hearts ), Elton John (Tumbleweed Connection, FRIENDS, MADMAN ACROSS THE WATER )and Carly Simon (No Secrets ).

*********
During the summer of 1972, Queen were to be found lurking in the corridors and reception area of Trident Studios, London, waiting for any available studio time so they could work on their debut album. They were more than a little put out by this indignity, but were left with no choice; their studio deal with Trident had not yet been signed, and the likes of David Bowie and Elton John kept the studios - then considered the best in London - extremely busy.

At the time, Trident staff engineer/producer Robin Cable was working on an old Beach Boys song called "I Can Hear Music", a song co-written with Phil Spector.
Spector had recently been in the studios recording with his wife Ronnie and, suitably inspired, Robin decided to have a go at re-creating the 'Spectorsound' himself. He'd heard Freddie Mercury singing with Queen and, aware that the band had plenty of free time in between recording sessions, he asked the singer if he'd sing the vocals for the track in question.
At Freddie's insistence, fellow Queen members Roger Taylor and Brian May were drafted in to add percussion and guitars, though bassist John Deacon was not present at the recording. Freddie Mercury also sang lead vocals on "Goin'Back", an old Goffin & King song covered by Dusty Springfield and the Byrds.

Robin Cable loved the songs so much that he persuaded Trident to release them, via their arrangement with EMI Records, to whom Queen were already signed.  However, it took almost a year for the disc to appear, and when it did, Queen's own album wasn't too far away, and so a pseudonym had to be used. As the songs were so far removed from the Queen sound, it was decided to spoof Gary Glitter by crediting the record to Larry Lurex, and the single was released at the height of Glittermania, on 29th June 1973 (EMI 2030).
