Mariano Mores - Temas Memorables

EMI 595155

These are modern recordings made with a sextet. There's a drum kit, xylophone, and the bandoneón sounds like an accordion. It's totally kitsch, but I find my foot tapping despite myself. You'll hate yourself for liking the gypsy version of Milonga triste, but no such problem exists with the massacre of El día que me quieras whose mutilated body is left bleeding in the gutter having received the full international tango treatment. This cd will be very popular with the ballroom community, but for fans of Argentine tango it's unforgivable. Mariano, how could you?

  1. Uno
  2. Gricel
  3. Muchachita porteña
  4. Cristal
  5. Toda mi vida
  6. Milonga sentimental milonga

  12. Fina estampa
  13. Tu piel de jazmín
  14. Frente al mar
  15. Milonga triste milonga
  16. Adiós
  17. Tierrita
  18. Amarraditos
  19. Porque?
  20. El día que me quieras

Osvaldo Pugliese - Tangos Que Traen Recuerdos

EMI 595157

Recordings made with Jorge Maciel on vocals from 1955-1959. This is the combination which gave us the high octane pyrotechnics of Remembranzas and Cascebelito and there are some great tracks here. Still, a whole album of this will be too much for most tangueros, which is a shame: this is heartfelt music.

Track list

  1. Esta noche de luna
  2. Remembranzas
  3. Cascabelito
  4. No juegues a la guerra
  5. Y sigo esperando
  6. Muchacha
  7. Y todavia te quiero
  8. Novia del suburbio
  9. No me hablen de ella
  10. Tango para el recuerdo
  11. Perla fina
  12. Quién
  13. Adiós corazón
  14. Tres banderas
  15. Porque me la nombran
  16. Mamita
  17. Si nace chancleta
  18. Y no podrás querer
  19. Silencio
  20. Dónde estás?

Héctor Varela - Noches De Cabaret

EMI 595158

Lesica, Ledesma and Laborde and vocals.

Track list

  1. Noches de cabaret
  2. Tal para cual
  3. Bulin de la calle ayacucho
  4. Paciencia
  5. Que sigan charlando
  6. Murio el malevo
  7. As de los ases
  8. Volve mi negra
  9. Novia provinciana
  10. Yo también
  11. Prienda
  12. Moneda de cobre
  13. Y no te voy a llorar
  14. Farolito viejo
  15. Yuyo brujo
  16. Anoche a las dos
  17. Carreta
  18. Bailongo
  19. Patio porteño vals
  20. Igual que dos palomas vals

Francisco Canaro - Bailando Tangos, Valses y Milongas

EMI 595159

Reliquias's answer to EBCD-30: a starter album of Canaro's best material from the decade 1935-1945. With seven valses (including Desde El Alma and Corazón De Oro) and six milongas this album is a winner. A clear first choice for a Canaro CD.

Track list

  1. Retintin
  2. Pampa
  3. Maleva
  4. Quiero verte una vez más
  5. Desde el alma vals
  6. Corazón de oro vals
  7. Tres jolie (muy lindo) vals
  8. Etincelles vals
  9. Milonga de mis amores milonga

  13. Pimienta
  14. Sentimiento gaucho
  15. El tigre
  16. Amor y primavera vals
  17. Dolores vals
  18. Aclamación vals
  19. Historia sentimental milonga
  20. Milonga de mis tiempos milonga

Pedro Laurenz / Ricardo Malerba - Grabaciones Olvidadas Vol.2

EMI 595160

Ten tracks each from Laurenz and Malerba. Of the 10 Laurenz sides, 8 fill in the end of his recordings on Odeón from 1944-47 and two (Amurado and Quejas de Bandoneón) are from the eight sides cut with Pampa in 1952/53. The sleeve notes claim that this CD completes the Laurenz discography on EMI but this simply isn't true.

Ricardo Malerba offers fewer fireworks, but is one of those orchestras, like D'Agostino/Vargas, which is massively appreciated by dancers, blending a rhythmic approach with light romanticism.

Track list

Pedro Laurenz

  1. Amurado (1952)
  2. Naranjo en flor
  3. Trenzas
  4. Mala junta
  5. Mendocina vals
  6. Barrio tranquilo

  8. Esta noche al pasar
  9. Piedad
  10. Quejas de bandoneón

Ricardo Malerba

  1. Una copa más
  2. Encuentro
  3. Guardia vieja
  4. Medianoche
  5. Corazón de artista vals
  6. Magdalena
  7. Mariana milonga
  8. Charamusca
  9. Oiga mozo
  10. Noches de montmartre

Cantan:

  • Jorge Linares (2,3,5,6,8)
  • Héctor Juncal (9)
  • Antonio Maida (11,12,14)
  • Orlando Medina (16-18,20)

  12. Ficha personal
  13. Flor de lis
  14. Rezongando... rezongando
  15. Caballero de la luna vals
  16. Cuando te hablen del domingo milonga

  18. Yo soy siempre el mismo
  19. En un pueblito de españa vals
  20. Horas

Alfredo De Angelis - Los Priméros Instrumentales

EMI 595166

A good De Angelis instrumental cd, but only his "first" instrumentals in the sense that he carried on recording right through the sixties and some of these tracks are from the 50s. Many of these tracks we've heard before on El Bandoneón, but of those we haven't the vals Imaginación is a storm. A good second CD of De Angelis.

Track list

  1. La cumparsita
  2. Pura mana
  3. El pial
  4. El chañar
  5. El entrerriano
  6. El taladro
  7. Jorge Duval
  8. Imaginación vals
  9. El otario milonga
  10. Nueve de julio
  11. Largaron
  12. Cuando llora la milonga
  13. El choclo
  14. El once
  15. Rayito
  16. Para ustedes
  17. La loba
  18. Guardia vieja
  19. El vazquito
  20. Olga vals

Nina Miranda - Uruguaya y Tanguera

EMI 595170

Nina Miranda is a singer from Uruguay. She recorded on the Sondor label in Uruguay from 1947-1955 accompanying various orchestras including that of Donato Racciatti (32 tracks with him). In 1955 she began to record in Argentina, recording 14 tracks on Odeón backed by the singer Graciano Gómez before retiring at the height of her success following her marriage. She would have been about 24. Note: the cd cover claims to present only tracks with the orchestra of Graciano Gómez, but this isn't true.

More information: Nina Miranda on Joventango.

Track list

  1. Mama yo quiero un novio
  2. Julian
  3. Maula
  4. Pero yo se

  18. Tigra
  19. Se te nota en los ojos
  20. Incomparable

Rodolfo Biagi - Su Orquesta y sus Cantores

EMI 595171

Pursuing a problem of putting out albums dedicated to an orchestra's individual singers, Reliquias get a bit stuck when these singers didn't record 20 tracks apiece. An album like this is the result: a mismatch of tracks from different singers and different periods. Mysteriously it's the only cd on which Reliquias have reprinted the fine instrumental milonga Picante. At least that track is now here, but missing, despite half a dozen duplicates from other discs, is the tango Levanta tu corazón - not an especially great tango, but with it Reliquias would have completed their discography of Biagi on Odeón (with whom Biagi recorded from 1938-1946).

In summary: a good album but there are other Biagi CDs you should get first.

Track list

  1. Santa milonguita
  2. Alguien
  3. Organito de la tarde
  4. Sangre de mi sangre
  5. Y no te voy a llorar
  6. Picante milonga
  7. No me digas que no
  8. Triste comedia
  9. El rápido
  10. Caricias
  11. Por eso grito
  12. Marcheta (Marquita) vals
  13. Anselmo Laguna
  14. Equipaje
  15. Maleva
  16. Barrio reo
  17. Arrebato
  18. El incendio
  19. Cielo!
  20. Gólgota

Cantan:

  • Hugo Duval (1,2,4,5,7,8)
  • Carlos Heredia (10)
  • Carlos Saavedra (11)
  • Alberto Amor (13)
  • Jorge Otiz (14)
  • Carlos Acuña (16)
  • Alberto Lago (17)
  • Andrés Falgás (19)
  • Teófilo Ibáñez (20)

Enrique Rodriguez - Solos de Orquesta

EMI 595172

One or two strong tracks (El Morochito stands out) but without his singers these Rodríguez tracks sometimes feel a little weak. Not your first choice then, but the lack of vocal and Rodríguez's clear rhythm would make this a good album for teaching.

Track list

  1. La torcacita
  2. Florida
  3. El morochito
  4. Jueves
  5. Siempre fiel vals
  6. Expresion campera
  7. Argentino soy
  8. Cordón de oro
  9. El africano
  10. Las tres de la mañana
  11. Zorro gris
  12. Canaro en París
  13. Arroyito
  14. La cumparsita
  15. Sangre ecuatoriana paso doble
  16. El rapido
  17. Royal Pigall
  18. El once
  19. La racha
  20. Danza hungara No.5 fox trot
