o vestido do noivado...

portuguese fado 78, probably 1940's

for those of you who are tired of all my quote posting lately, i know it's been a long time since i've run some old music on airforms, so today i pulled out some 78's and will run a few oddball things in the next week or so. here's a very pretty and sad sounding portugese fado, probably from the 1940's, performed by carlos marques afonso. i don't know anything about him, the recording is not spectacular, but it sounds heartfelt and quite beautiful, and is the kind of thing a non-specialist like myself can fall in love with easily. i think rather than more words, i'll leave it to you to listen and enjoy in silence.

Terrific song! Never heard of that label, either...

What does PAB stand for? I assume it's written around the edge of the label? Just curious.
