Para Quando o Arco-Íris Encontrar o Pote de Ouro

12 de Janeiro (January 12th) is the first solo album released by Brazilian musician Nando Reis. The track "E.T.C" was later recorded live by Cássia Eller on her Acústico MTV album, and became a big hit.[clarification needed] Until November 1995, it had sold 25,000 copies, a disappointment for Reis, who considered that the label was to blame because "some songs performed well on the radio, but there were no CDs at the stores".[1] By August 1997, it had reached the 27,300 mark.[2]

The track "Meu Aniversário" was composed as a heavier version for Titãs' 1993 album Titanomaquia, but the band rejected it because it was still too light and different from the rest of the tracks. Nevertheless, it was featured at the band's rarities compilation album E-collection.[3] The track "Bom Dia" was inspired by his children Theodoro and Sophia.[4]
