Not too long ago, we examined the bizarre but enjoyable world of the country mambo. Today we shift gears only slightly and check out two other microscopically small sub-genres of the Nashville recording industry: the country tango and rhumba scenes.
Well, mostly these were Nashville efforts. The Lucky Stars represent an exception as their version of Tennesee Tango was recorded in California, if I'm not mistaken. If you think the intersection of country music and Latin dance crazes represents an unlikely collision of cultures, you may wish to brace yourself for the knuckle-headed collection of country twist records we've got stashed away for a future post.
