A superb album of Canaro's early works. Canaro's late '20s output (previously only available on the French EPM label) has enormous charm and delicacy which in the 1930s became alloyed with an energy that makes this delightful dance material. This is most especially true in the milongas and they are all here; as far as I know this is the only place you can currently obtain his recordings of Milonga Brava.

But don't let me finish without telling you more about the '20s material. Canaro's interpretation of Don Juan is one of the best ever put on wax, and Ada Falcón's rendition of La Morocha a true classic.

Finally, those aren't misprints on the track list - Pajaro Azul and Halcon Negro really are five minutes long. Each was recorded on a single side of a 78 which just goes to show what could be accomplished using microgrooves. Pieces like this give us an idea of the kind of thing that Canaro and Pelay would have been using in their stage shows.

The sound quality throughout is impeccable: warmly recommended.
