Record labels

Have been a bit quiet on this blog for a while, although this certainly does not mean a complete withdrawal from tango. In fact, quite the contrary. Regular milongas have been going steadily, plus a new milonga on Fridays, in conjunction with a guided practica. It is heartening to see the regulars putting in the effort and improving steadily, especially so when some the fundamentals that I have been emphasizing were vindicated in a workshop by visiting maestros over the past weekend!

Well, life and milongas go on. Regretfully I have been able to resist to add to my music collection with little success… 🙁

Anyway I decided to refresh myself with the major tango record labels with the “A beginner’s guide to tango record labels” today. Here is a quick summary relevant to the music I already have or will receive in short order!

  • EMI-Odeon: Reliquias, From Argentina to the World, Serie de Oro.
  • Sony-BMG: RCA Victor, Tango Argentino, Solo Tango (FM Tango).
  • Euro Records: Coleccion 78 RPM, Archivo RCA, Archivo Odeon, Archivo T.K..
  • Collectors: Audio Park, Club Tango Argentino (CTA), Buenos Aires Tango Club (BATC).
