We can say there’s a Fado before and after Amália and these recordings remain what, in the world of recorded sound, became her first step into the future.
Amália started her career in 1938, when she was 18. Her first recordings were made in Brazil in 1945 and Portugal throughout 1951 and 1952. On this CD are included some of those Fados we can consider the classics among classics.
1. Fado da Adiça, 2. Fado da Saudade, 3. Fado Marujo, 4. Fado Alfacinha, 5. A Minha Canção é Saudade, 6. Troca de Olhares, 7. Lá Porque Tens Cinco Pedras, 8. Fria Claridade, 9. Quando os Outros te Batem, Beijo-te Eu, 10. Sardinheiras, 11. Ai Mouraria, 12. Avé Maria Fadista, 13. Que Deus Me Perdoe, 14. Ai Mouraria (Com Orquestra), 15. Confesso
