Pugliese with orchestra, Chanel and Gauthier

1943 was an important year for Osvaldo Pugliese: after several years, he finally started recording (meaning we miss out on a lot of interesting material) and he hired Roberto Chanel, perhaps his most emblematic singer, who soon scored a big hit with the tango Farol. This picture shows Pugliese standing next to his prolific new partner (white suit, to the right) and Augusto Gauthier (other white suit), a singer who had been working with Pugliese for years but soon quit, leaving no recordings.
