These tango selections, recorded in Buenos Aires, come courtesy of the collection of Christian From Dallas who has been kind enough to loan me a few boxes of records for me to digitize.  These boxes contain some really impressive vintage records from a variety of genres and I will be including them in future updates – while, of course, continuing to feature records from my own collection.

Francisco Canaro was an internationally famous Uruguayan violinist and bandleader whose career spanned many decades.   He was also highly prolific in the recording studio:  an online discography of his work includes over 3,700 works.

    Did you mean “Olvidame?”

    My Spanish isn’t very strong, the the verb, olvidar, means “to forget.”

    Jen – Yes, that is what is should have said – and now does. Thanks for pointing it out. Typing foreign words one does not understand is never fun – so easy to make a misspelling and if one makes a typo the spell check is of no use.
