    Just wondering why this thread is "Sticky". Is there a reason for that?

    If not, Moderators, can that be changed?

    Sounds like the 1952 version to me - the sound of the 1954 version is lusher, and the 1956 is with Jorge Duran.

    I'm stumped. I've been all though the treads and searches and I can't find a discussion we had a while back. We talked about a specific tune that started out with a habanera rhythm and continued it almost all the way through. Can someone remind me what the name of that tune was?

    Was it El Choclo?

    I thought about that, but I can't find a recording that starts that way. As I recall, the intro was just a piano or bass playing the habanera rhythm.

    Strange this is, I think I had the first response to the original post. ????

    The penny has dropped! The first piece isn't Sentimiento Gaucho, at all, it's La Viruta (1948?), and the tracks must be misnamed. It's not just Spotify, though: Amazon & iTunes make the same error. I have a track in my collection which is supposed to be La Viruta - but it isn't, so now I'm trying to work out what that is:

    Rodolfo Biagi Y Su Orquesta Tipica – La Viruta (What is it really?)

    I've sorted it out: the titles of every track between 13 & 19 are wrong. #13 is Sentimiento Gaucho, but that track is wrongly labelled as #19, all the songs in between have the track name misplaced by 1. Duh!

    If you have downloaded the Album (EMI's From Argentina to the World series), you might like to see whether your own copies are correctly identified.

    I didn't download it, and I don't have spotify account. :)
