Argentine Tangos - Jo Basile

Argentine Tangos
Jo Basile His Accordion and Orchestra
Audio Fidelity AFSD 5869
1959

This set can be found at your usual purchase-download vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here so that you can get a look at the original cover which AF printed on high quality gloss paper stock.

This is a lush AF gatefold production that features only a brief paragraph on Basile and fills the rest of the expansive inside cover with the history of the tango and an explanation of "stereophonic sound".

From March 16, 1959 Billboard: Another in the international series by the Basile group. This time the heat is tango and the most outstanding items in tango literature are here. The accordion, suited to interpretation of the tango by reason of its ability to produce rich swells of sound, is in the hands of an expert here.

The set is a straight forward, simplistic approach to "tango" that offers no space-age "wow-factor".
