Golden Era 60 Agustin Barrios Recently Discovered Recordings 1913-28 CD $17.00
On March 31, 1913 Alfredo Amendola's Discos Atlanta opened
their doors for sales to the public in Buenos Aires. Their "sister"
label Discos Artigas, in Montevideo, released the same recordings
in the capital of Uruguay as well. There had to have been a 60 to
90 day delay from the time of recording to the street date of the
recordings. After being recorded in the Rio de la Plata area the
masters were sent to Germany for pressing. The full page
advertisement of Ay, Ay, Ay-the fourth record to be recorded and
released by Agustin Barrios appeared on July 5, 1913 in the Caras
y Caretas magazine, published in Buenos Aires. The songs
Mandolinata Napolitana and Ojos Negros are Agustin Barrios'
second disc to be released and Isabel was recorded close to the end
of the 1914 recording sessions.
These three recordings are a debut in the CD format.
