8. Vivo Sohando
The original West German pressing of Getz/Gilberto features a black paint coating with silver text. The channel orientation is incorrect in that Astrud Gilberto’s vocals on “The Girl From Ipanema” are in the right channel. The original tapes have Gilberto’s vocals in the left channel. Although various CDs have been released over the past 20 years with the incorrect right-channel orientation, subsequent West German pressings were released with the correct left-channel orientation.
The matrix code for the original West German pressing is “810048 2 05″. A West German pressing without the black paint coating (i.e., black text with an aluminum background) is found with this same matrix code and therefore with the same incorrect channel orientation. Note that there are no spaces in the 810 portion of the matrix code and also there is no dash before the 2. Later West German pressings with the correct channel orientation have a matrix code of the form “810 048-2 XX”, with the last two numbers varying.
The catalog number does not appear on the front cover. The cover for some later West German pressings has the catalog number printed in the top right corner.
The track times do not appear next to the song titles. The back insert for some later West German pressings has the track times printed next to the song titles.
This disc is unique by virtue of the black paint coating. Later and more common West German pressings have black text with an aluminum background.
