A real surprise, and an intelligent choice, is this double album of early Piazzolla. There's nothing new on this - we've heard it before on El Bandoneón and Reliquias. If you've not heard this music, and frankly it's unlikely that you have because it's little played in the milongas, then I recommend that you do so. It sounds much more like "normal" dance music but even in his first orchestra Piazzola is pressing hard up against the boundaries of tango convention. He crams in so many musical ideas that this music become very difficult for the improvising dancer. Piazzolla's arrangement of El Recodo stands out as a masterpiece of creative invention.
