DDPs Favorite Tandas:

D’Arienzo: Vocals with Hector Mauré

Dime mi amor (1941)
Tierrita (1941)
El olivo (1941)
Humillación (1941)

I’ve finally moved into the 1940s with D’Arienzo! His defining singer of this decade was definitely Hector Mauré. Within D’Arienzo’s ouevre, Mauré’s more lyrical and dramatic style compliments Echagüe‘s raw sound, just as Campos complements Castillo within the Tanturi catalog.
This particular tanda still displays D’Arienzo’s speed and rhythm, though, since it is from the early 1940s. It opens with the classic “Dime mi amor,” lightens up a bit with “Tierrita” (though the words are not light at all…), then dives back into speed and power with “El olivo,” culminating with the powerful “Humillación.” I get chills every time I hear Mauré sing “¡odio este amor!”
