They rather like to have some surface noise than a cleaned to death recording!
To visualise this effort, one has to be aware that the time interval which is of most concern to modern dancers,the Epoca de Oro with pre and afterparty, is parallel to the technical invention of the electrical recording systems in Cosas Olvidadas - Various - History Of Tango (CD) second part of the s and ends with the introduction of the modern vinyl record and the first stereo systems around the mids when the full frequency-range recording had been finally made possible.
This had been a sensational improvement compared to the former acoustic recording systems to 2, Hertz and sometimes less which were in place until around mostly in an effort to empty their stock of acoustic records. None of the older acoustic recordings nearly everything before are played in any milongas nowadays.
But listen to a very early electrical Cosas Olvidadas - Various - History Of Tango (CD) recording, A media luz interpreted by the Orquestra Francisco Canaro from around November The missing frequencies let the tangos, we like so much, sound to our contemporary ear like if they were recorded on a different planet. By the late s it must have been almost 15 years ago since the last 78 rpm records were sold, by the beginning of the s, these old records had already disappeared from the market 30 years ago and playing 78 rpm records had been by then impossible for the large public.
Therefore a new media had to be used for public reeditions to be able to still listen to the Epoca de Oro tango repertoire. This had been in the beginning exclusively the new vinyl record and later the tape and compact cassette.
A lot of people I meet are unaware of this circumstance and very much focused on the CD editions as the ultimate reference. Often they try to show me some hidden logic in how the tangos are distributed over a particular CD. Whereas the CDs often represent just a lot of 78 rpm records put together in a chronological order sometimes covering all 30 years of the larger Golden Age but in an uncomplete manner as a tango CD typically holds only around 20 to 30 tracks.
This batch is often put together on an availability basis and rarely in an editorial manner. There are some exceptions though like the English Harlequin CD collection.
In reality the reference is neither the CD nor the vinyl or tape. The reference is the original 78 rpm record release for mostly every published tango before A 78 rpm record looks i n size like a vinyl LP record but contains only one track per side. After started the vinyl era and some of the still present tango bands recorded then vinyl albums.
A typical artefact which had been introduced back then to the original recordings, is called a reverberation effect. While listening through the same titles of my collection I can distinguish versions with and without an echo effect. The initial recordings date from to If you listen to the echo containing versions, you have the impression that the orchestra must have been quite huge, recorded in a big hall with a lot of musicians.
Whereas the standard version without the echo effect, sounds like very close and intimate. To be more precise the echo effect is called a delay effect. With reverberation there are multiple delays and feedback so that individual echoes are blurred together, recreating the sound of an acoustic space. And I think this was precisely the intention of the sound engineers when they later added the echo to the old recordings: To add more depth to the flat sounding recording of the mono era.
As a side effect the echo also camouflaged imperfections of the original sound recording. And indeed when you listen to the echoed versions there is nearly no surface noise left.
They make a clean impression. They just contain some dating errors and some have no date indications at all but the sound quality is outstanding with no to very few reverberation effects and close to perfect tuning. Therefore most of the dancers in America and also in Europe know only or at least only had Cosas Olvidadas - Various - History Of Tango (CD) to the echo version as you can see on nearly all Youtube dancing videos like this memorable performance by Puppy Castello and Graciela Gonzalez from I guess the music is played from a turntable or cassette deck and just from that aforementioned 10 LP set Serie Tango De Ayer, Vol.
According to Johan it looks like the masters might have been lost. The japanese editions are based on their own 78 rpm transfers. From the strict point of view of authenticity the echo version is untruesome would say a lie. A lot of music in that time used extensively delay effects. This suggests that there must have been an interventionalist sound engineer at this company who added all sorts of artefacts to the historic recordings: Echo, tempo acceleration, low pass filters, etc.
