The question if Eumir Deodato recorded the very first version of Samba de Verão is hard to be concluded. According to Instituto Memória Musical Brasileira (IMMUB) [http://www.memoriamusical.com.br] the song was recorded in 9 versions in 1964 by Pedrinho Mattar, Os Cariocas, Wilson Miranda, Dóris Monteiro, J.T. Meirelles & Os Copa 5, Conjunto OK and Roberto Menescal. Eumir Deodato recorded the song twice in 1964, on his solo album Idéias and on the album Impulso! credited to Eumir Deodato & Os Catedráticos.
