"What the above listing DOESN'T tell you about this Particular Carmen Miranda collection is really how much fun this assortment of tunes is compared to ones containing nothing but her more serious native recordings. Sure you do have a few of those here - "Diz Que Tem", "Arca De Noe" and "Nao Te Dou A Chupeta" with her famous "Bando da Lua" which are great too. Also her "Americanized" recordings from some of her movies - even the post WWII bombs - she's still a hot pepper, but the movies are often exercises in splashy tedium. But the best and most whimsical of all on this are the pairings she did with the wonderful Andrews Sisters - "Cuanto La Gusta", "I See, I See", "The Wedding Samba" and one of the versions of "The Matador". If you purchase this for nothing else it would be those novelties! Overall a long-time favorite of mine in my whole Carmen Miranda collection of music!"
