3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harry on 30 Jun 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I bought this CD I felt bit like someone who, accustomed to the power and sophistication of the Chicago blues from Muddy Waters et al, was listening to my first '20s delta blues recordings from Blind Lemon Jefferson and such. In other words, there is great merit here, it is very interesting, but is it is a much simpler form than the style of the '40s Tango which defined what most of us think of as Argentine Tango. For example, the accompaniment is all guitars; no bandaneo, no piano, no violin. Also, the guitars are played rather plucked and piccicato, with none of the elegant sliding of later Tango guitar music. A rather unsophisticated and chunky musical style.

Another review has praised the voice of Gardel very highly. It is good, but I prefer the honeyed lounge lizard presentation of, for example, Francisco Canaro with singers Roldan and Adrian. But then for me, Tango is in-escapably the territory of musical glamour and sensuality, which although this is a lot of good things, it isn't quite that.

It's not hi-fi but that doesn't spoil the enjoyment of listening to how the Tango evolved - as practised by one of its greatest talents; a shame it was cut short in its prime.

Excellent Compilation 3 Jan 2007
By Alfredo Puerta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Carlos Gardel was the most acclaimed tango singer during the first quarter of 20th century. His voice was so musical, expressive and charming that every recording he made of tango music is considered definitve even nowadays.

This compilation brings some not-so-well-known tangos brought to real life by the master process of nimbus records, this company had performed excellent restorations of early opera singers such as caruso and amelita galli curci among others.

A must for anyone with interest in tango music and especially for gardel aficionados who will find more detailed ambience and subleties from gardel guitarrists. A real jewel.

Carlos Farrell Hits 13 Dec 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These are original songs and the quality during that time wasn't as great as today's songs but that's ok. It brought me fond memories. Carlos Gardel had an incredible voice and will live forever among his fans.
