Thanks Stan. I listened to the sample but decided not to buy the Mp3.  
Sounded good and clearly a dance tune to a tango beat. I am not really  
into that kind of music and wouldn't know what to do with it, not  
being a collector. <grin>
Fun to hear once, though.

I used to collect records as a kid, but ceased as I started to play  
more and listen to live bands. Gave all my records away to wannabe  
jazz musicians as I got older. Wish I'd kept a few as some are now  
quite valuable. (like I had some of the original Hot 5/Hot 7 pressings)
