This is a very different album to any Troilo album that we have seen previously, for it attempts to cover all of Troilo's 1940s output on a single disc - we get tracks with Fioretino, Marino, Floreal Ruíz and Edmundo Rivero, as well as instrumental numbers.
This instantly makes this the most ambitious disc of the set and I should tell you it's a project that the Argentines have never attempted - they tend to categorise Troilo into instrumental and vocal numbers, with the latter issued on discs devoted to individual singers, a trend that El Bandoneón have followed in their releases. This means that the only way you would otherwise cover such a broad period would be to buy more discs - somewhere between five and eight discs, in fact, instead of this two disc set.
