    MINAS CELEBRATES “RECORD STORE DAY” WITH THE REISSUE OF “NUM DIA AZUL”, from 1983, VINYL AND CDS Num Dia Azul is the first recording released by Minas. Released in Brazil in the fall of 1983 on vinyl, right before Orlando and Patricia moved to the Philadelphia area and out of print since 1985, the album has become sought-after by collectors worldwide. From the 1000 copies made, 300 were distributed in Brazil, 100 brought to the US, and the rest was lost in a fire at Orlando’s mother’s house. Over the years Orlando and Patricia received requests for the album from collectors all over, and 2 songs were licensed and released in Germany by the label Jazzanova.
