Comments: A reissue of a 1961 (recorded 1959/1960) album (tracks 1-12), the first Piazzolla did for RCA. It was mostly Piazzolla interpreting classical tangos (only Preparense and Triunfal were his compositions). The last four songs (13-16) are from a 1962 single and were not part of the original LP. This record (along with those from the 'Montevideo Sessions') marks the transition into the quintet period (the companion LP "Piazzolla Interpreta Piazzolla", also for RCA marks the beginning of the quintet period - with the abandonment of traditional tangos in the repertoire and the dropping of singing)
