1. Juan D'Arienzo / Roberto Lemos - "Desencanto" 1950

3. Juan D'Arienzo / Roberto Lemos - "Penumbras" 1951

-------- First of all I'd like to make an announcement: Due to changed policies on Facebook, the reach of my posts on Facebook has fallen drastically. This means that the post updates in the TOTW Facebook page will reach only a fraction of the people liking the page. So if you follow the blog mainly through Facebook, it is highly recommended that you click "Subscribe to posts" on the panel on the right side of this very page, to stay up-to-date with the new posts on the blog. Thank you! -------

http://www.deezer.com/playlist/699387145"Following a strong D'Arienzo preference in these days i wanted to propose you some nice valses with Roberto Lemos for Tanda of the Week. It's like a wonder that D'Arienzo and Lemos were recording only 7 pieces but 3 [of them were] valses. Right enough for a nice tanda with typical 50s D'arienzo sound, slightly before the "El Puntazo"-climax in 1952, but with an unfamiliar singer. They have everything... power, melody, strong bandoneons, lovely violins and sparkling piano fill-ins!"

Thank you Stefan!

I'd like to add that "No llores madre" has been recorded twice by D'Arienzo. The first version is a great instrumental recording from 1936 and you can listen to it here: Spotify or Deezer

    1. It is a reference to the song "El puntazo", which is probably the best example of the finest and strongest of D'Arienzos instrumental tangos from the 50's.
