You may consider to spend some more days before or after the Tango weekend in order to discover the amazing nature surrounding you!

In case you want to hike please bring proper hiking equipment (boots, jacket,..) with you!

During my last stay in Tokio back in 2012 I had the opportunity to meet Shigeru Terada-san, owner of Audio Park. He is a collector of Jazz records and I learned about his extensiv catalog of 78 RPM SP Jazz record transfers. I got some and found out that quality is amazing and plenty of those are very suitable for cortinas. So we got the whole collection which is now listed under Audio Park various releases. And some of them are also offered in our CD shop. If your are interested in others, we can any of them for you on custom order!

Los Clásicos Argentinos

This is a rather old argentinian CD series. Of course it is out of print for long time but you may be able to find it on ebay or mercado libre. If so, take it! Despite being a very inexpensive argentinian production the quality of the recordings is outstanding and belongs clearly to the best you can find!

 

2013-08-03

El Bandoneón / Blue Moon

El Bandoneón was one of the first labels re-issuing tangos on CDs. There are lots of known problems with this series which is why we avoided those CDs for a long time getting better quality releases first. However many collectors and Tango-DJs do have those CDs and for the sake of better meta information we got a bunch of El Bandoneón and Blue Moon CDs in order to correct their information and feed our database.

Problems you will run into using those CDs: There are various speed problems ranging from too slow (seldom) to way too fast (often). Lots of information about vocalists or recording years are either missing or very wrong. Some of these errors are listed by Johan on his website "El Bandoneón" Revisited. We started to note down our corrections in order to add them to Johan's list, but we soon had to give up as there is something or everything wrong on almost any El Bandoneón or Blue Moon CD you look at in detail. So please recheck your El Bandoneón CD or tagging with the information given here or in our database if you are interested in correcting your information/tagging.
