Tanda of the Week 29 / 2013 - Miguel Calo con Raúl Berón

Raúl Berón

1. Miguel Caló / Raúl Berón - "Jamás retornarás" 1942
2. Miguel Caló / Raúl Berón - "Trasnochando" 1942
3. Miguel Caló / Raúl Berón - "Corazón, no le hagas caso" 1942
4. Miguel Caló / Raúl Berón - "Qué te importa que te llore" 1942

Here's a second version of a Miguel Caló with Raúl Berón tanda that I had posted earlier. I find that this one captures better the story of losing someone you love with some of the most beautiful tangos ever recorded. I've replaced "Lejos de Buenos Aires" with "Trasnochando".  You can listen to the tanda on Spotify or Deezer, and the tanda is also available on a shirt of your choise at RedBubble.

Although I have been playing this one also as a version where "Lejos de Buenos Aires" replaces "Corazon, no le hagas caso". It is a matter of if I like to follow "Trasnochando" with a song that starts with a similar strong beat or with one that starts a lot smoother. But like I said lyrics wise I like "Corazon..." better. For me, this here is tango perfected and in these songs you have it all. Great danceability, amazing orchestra and singer, the melody, the rhytm, drama, passion and melancholy. It doesn't really get better than this. Overplaying these songs is impossible.

    Agreed! A perfectly formed tanda of four sublime tangos.
