El Choclo or the Kiss of Fire

Put together an article on one of the most famous tangos 'El Choclo' for Tangoaustralia. Seems you can find just about anything on Youtube and it is fantastic to have old movie clips at our disposal in this way. It is actually an excellent way of keeping these things alive instead of being stuck away in fusty old archives. When I was a librarian I remember finding treasures in stack which were not available to the average user, unless requested, and which many never knew were there.
If you love tango music you will no doubt find the story of this piece of familiar music interesting. And if you don't know tango music you will probably be surprised to find that you know this one.
