“Discos de Gardel” by Ricardo Tanturi y su Orquesta Típica with Enrique Campos in vocals, 1945.

Gardel’s records made that many of his fans, after his death, started a thorough hunt which seemed to be a race to find out who was the first to discover the complete collection of his recordings. 

Then, at last, the lyricist Horacio Sanguinetti and the bandoneonist Eduardo Del Piano found the inspiration to create, in 1945, the tango entitled “Discos de Gardel”.

Here is the rendition recorded it on May 3, 1945, by the the excellent Uruguayan singer Enrique Campos with the Ricardo Tanturi orchestra.

Enrique Campos, Argentine Tango singer and composer.

Enrique Campos

Singer and composer (10 March 1913 – 13 March 1970)

His name is written among the most representative tango artists.

He had natural abilities which helped to make easy a difficult career at the time of the great singers.

He had a look, a personality and a distinct voice that he evidenced with his phrased and melodious expression.

Ricardo Tanturi, who knew his abilities, made possible his inclusion into his orchestra. He was the different voice to replace Alberto Castillo.

Enrique Campos debuted on Radio El Mundo as Tanturi’s orchestra singer and immediately he began to record discs. 

In March 1946, he married, raising an exemplary family. The following month, after working at a dancing at the Club Unión de Caseros (neighborhood of the gran Buenos Aires), he sang for the last time with Tanturi, withdrawing to appear as soloist with guitar accompaniment.

Luis Caruso, Argentine Tango musician, leader and composer.

Luis Caruso

Bandoneonist, bandleader, lyricist and composer (16 February 1916 – 10 February 1981)

His was a case the other way around to what was customary.

Throughout the twentieth century the Uruguayan boys that played tango or were movie or theater actors or carried out other activities like horse racing, such as the case of Irineo Leguisamo, used to cross the Río de la Plata and moved to Buenos Aires in order to have more job possibilities.

But Carusito —who was born in the porteño neighborhood of Villa Crespo— moved to the other bank when he was only twenty and stayed in Montevideo for the rest of his life.

Every now and then he returned for a short time because of family or business reasons or because there were few jobs in his city of choice.

As an author, Luis Caruso filed in the record over 200 numbers of great success. For instance: “Y siempre igual”.

One of his greatest hits was the waltz “Me besó y se fue”.
