AllMusic Review by

For 40 years, Paris was tango's second city (that's where the Castles learned it). Though some of the music is heavier on nostalgia than genius, this is a superlative set ranging from the quaint to the truly great, both famous and forgotten: Carlos Gardel at his best, Rafael Canaro, Bachicha, Alina de Silva....Splendid notes and photos add to a document of huge historical value and a ton of charm.
