CD-reviews & news


This newsletter today happens to be published on my names day! So for once I will dedicate one of the main topics of this newsletter to an event organized by Tango-DJ.at - Alpine Abrazo 2012 the first international tangomarathon in the Austrian Alps! Registration is open, most important details published, be fast enough and save your place!

Second topic is about a 129 CD collection of Francisco Canaro. Finally I finished crosslistening and verifying tracks as far as possible. Tracklistings of those CDs as well as missing recordings published on other CDs and a "CD-discography" of Francisco Canaro recordings are available now.

Our Audio-/Video presentations for this month is featuring a rather unknown tango by Juan Maglio "Pacho" taken from CTA-728.

This will be a weekend where dancers from all over Europe enjoy dancing with each other at a very special place to an exquisit selection of music provided by international renown DJs. Our utmost concern is to provide a friendly environment for everybody to fully enjoy this weekend. For this we want to emphasize the importance of respecting the most basic principles of dancing at a Milonga. This includes knowing "Mirada" & "Cabeceo" for invitation as well as advanced floorcraft competence to secure safe and respectfull dancing also on a crowded dance floor! Everybody thinking that this is a good idea and is capable and willing to support this is most welcome!

You may consider to spend some more days before or after the tango weekend in order to discover the amazing nature surrounding you! Please note that Mallnitz is located in the mountains (1200m), so please bring warm clothes with you! Weather in October can be the best hiking weather in the whole year, but it can also be very cold. In case you want to hike please bring proper hiking equipment (boots, jacket,..) with you!

CD-reviews & news

This month's A/V presentation is featuring the rather unknown recording "Mi virgencita" by Juan Maglio "Pacho", 1927 taken from CTA-728.



CD News of Club Tango Argentino (CTA), AMP & Sondor

As stated in my last newsletter you may take a look at this updated pdf document for all CDs I try to keep in stock of the special and hard to get labels: CTA (Japan), AMP (Japan), Audio Park (Japan), Sondor (Uruguay) & Harlequin (UK).


Sadly several CTA-CDs went out of print:

  • Lomuto's CTA-221, CTA-224, CTA-732
  • D'Agostino's CTA-351, CTA-352, CTA-353
  • Firpo's CTA-743
  • Canaro's CTA-774
  • Mercedes Simone CTA-812
  • Ada Falcón Vol. 3 CTA-823

I do have a few of them left in stock, so be quick in order to get one of those last CDs!


"CD-discography" of Francisco Canaro

Finally I am done with crosslistening and correcting/verifying the recordings on the 129 CDs of this Canaro collection. Corrected and added information is based on Christoph Lanner's Canaro discography, expertise and help. This collection contains ~2300 differing recordings. A list of recordings missing in this collection but published on other CDs can be found here. A listing of ~5500 tracks (~2400 recordings) by Francisco Canaro and the CDs on which they can be found is available on "CD-discography" of Francisco Canaro. Of course this list includes multiple listing of recordings being published on different CDs.

So there are three new pages listing Canaro recordings:

Please note that this is not the outcome of a scientific research, but an export of my music archive. So I do not garantee that the published information is complete and/or correct. It should still be helpfull to find recordings you are looking for or identifing missing recordings you might be interested in.
