Making of vinyl records

A very interesting documentatary on the production of records (the three stages: master, mother matrix and stamper), made by who but RCA Victor! How is this related to tango? Well, it just so happens that RCA Victor was and still is a major player in tango music and I enjoy these old documentaries…

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the comment. While that seems to be the common story (behind why a large portion of recorded tango is no longer available to us) going around, it smells somewhat like an urban myth: see for the alternative explanation which granted is less galmourous…

    Or the Google translated version if your Spanish is like me, non-existent. 🙂
