The History of Tango - Nelly Omar with the Francisco Canaro Orchestra

This album is a "greatest hits" of Nelly Omar, one of the warmest sounding female tenor singers of the 1940's who sang with Francisco Canaro's orquestra. Most of the tracks have been cleaned up (almost all tango music from before 1950 comes to us transcribed from the pressed 78's, as the masters were destroyed in a fire), except track 5. The highlights of the album are the two tango waltzes "Desde el Alma" (the only version ever done with a vocalist) and "Rosa de Otono" (the one song most often associated with Nelly Omar), and a version of the tango "Dejame, No Quiero Verte Mas" which is just as anguished and romantic as the version Alberto Podesta did with Carlos Di Sarli's orchestra. The other songs are all good solid versions (most of them were also done with male singers, if not with Canaro, then by another Argentine tango orchestra). Canaro's orchestration, while giving a leading role to the singer, still gives equal weight to the other instruments, so that the singer is not heard for the entire song (which makes it very easy to dance to). One needs to note that the tracks are mislabeled: 1,2,3 are correctly identified, however #4 is "Sentimiento Gaucho" (tango), #5 is "Sus Ojos Se Cerraron" (tango), #6 is "Dejame, No Quiero Verte Mas" (tango), #7 is "La Cancion de Buenos Aires" (tango), #8 is "Desde el Alma" (vals), #9 is "El Morocho Y el Oriental" (milonga), and #10 is "Nobleza de Arrabal" (tango).
