In 1968, singer Elis Regina signs an autograph for a French fan.

Elis Regina (1945 - 1982) started performing on radio shows at the age of eleven. Success took until 1965 when she won a singing contest with the song "Arrastão", written by Edu Lobo and Vinicius de Moraes.

Precisely Edu Lobo created Upa Neguinho, recorded on autographed vinyl here, for the piece "Arena canta zombie". In 1968, Elis Regina was very successful with a 2nd version of this song at Olympia, a respected Parisian concert hall, where she signed this autograph. In this article, Hugo Prata, the Director of the film "Elis", tells interesting details:

Everyone knows Elis Regina's destiny: the young woman became a key figure in the emerging Brazilian popular music (MPB) where samba, bossa nova, pop and rock were mixed. However, a fervent and outspoken opponent of the military regime in force in Brazil since 1964, Elis Regina had to come to terms with power to avoid the exile or imprisonment suffered by many artists during this period.

It was in 1974 that “Pimentinha” reached its peak with the album Elis et Tom, where he recorded Tom Jobim's repertoire with Antonio Carlos Jobim, often cited as one of the best bossa nova albums ever released. He also worked with Milton Nascimento, Ronaldo Bôscoli, Chico Buarque, Jorge Ben and Caetano Veloso.

At the age of 36 on January 19, 1982, the artist died from an excess of cocaine, alcohol and tranquilizers. More than fifteen thousand inconsolable fans attended the funeral of this legend of Brazilian music.

Elis Regina was one of the most popular Brazilian singers of the 1960s and 1970s, her autographs are very rare, especially on a vinyl cover.
