  • Last tango in paris

    I'm a big fan of this incredible track.

    Ive managed to pick up versions by the following:

    -Roberto Delgado
    -Max Greger
    -SoftIce
    -Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass
    -Gato Barbieri

    Any other good versions?

    The Pete Winslow isn't too shabby at all... got a spare if you want it.

        and for something a little more modern (heretical, i know) why not try the gotan project version on their "la revancha del tango" set.

              Ricardo, His Saxophone & Orchestra 'Last Tango In Paris' LP on Pickwick, 1973.

              This is a great version with lovely percussive beats, low, grinding bass and ace sax blasts & squeals - it's got a really live, spaced-out jazz sound. Unfortunately the rest of the LP bears almost no resemblance whatsoever to the title track and is pretty dull.  

              Definitely worth a punt for Last Tango though.
              Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                Chicken Curry and his Percussion Pops Orchestra do a decent one (basically El Chicles under a different name, I believe) that was used on the BBC test card.

                It's weird that there are so many good versions of this tune, and then I find the original is something of a disappointment.
                Perhaps it's just because Pete Winslow's was the first version I heard, and it spoilt me......

                  Ocho did a nice version on their 2nd album, the one with the pool table on the front.

                        I forgot to add Albert Hall's version on the Studio 2 LP 'Albert Hall's Grand Slam'. I'm surprised no-one else has mentioned this LP before - loads of brass and Harry Stoneham does some brilliant solos. Well worth looking out for.
