Invierno: yet another hard-to-find track
Given the state of preservation (or the lack of) of recorded tango music since the 1940s, it’s little wonder that we can commonly find from the major labels like Sony-BMG, EMI, etc., are but only a fraction of all that was recorded during the Golden Age of tango. In fact, many gems are only available in the expensive editions released by private collectors.
Here is another beautiful piece from Canaro, “Invierno”, which I heard for the first time a couple of months ago. By the way, even the usually reliable resource http://eng.tango.info has no information as to the source of this song! Incidentally I really enjoyed this clip from the well-known DJ Damián Boggio as he showed off a little of his record collection.
* However, this song must be reasonably “accessible” in Buenos Aires as I have already seen 2 performances this year using this song. One source that I have discovered is Club de Tango, but perhaps there are others?
