Just a Gigolo - Leo Reisman & His Orchestra with vocal refrain, Victor 1929

NOTE: it's interesting, how scarcely the American versions of famous European tangos e.g. Just a Gigolo (also I Kiss Your LIttle Hand Madame) do respect original rhythm versions. They are usually played as foxtrots or slow-foxes. Among European renditions I recall one such case, which was Percival Mackay's recording of "I Kiss Your Little Hand..." - also in the hot foxtrott rhythm. I do not, however, recall any European non-tango version of ":Just a Gigolo". Thanks to such memorable recordings like by the leading Weimar Republic dance orchestras (Marek Weber, Paul Godwin, Dajos Bela, Julian Fuhs etc.) or sung - exclusively, as tango! - by Damia, Berthe Sylva, Daniele Serra, this beautiful song will always remain for Europeans one of best tangos ever composed on the Old Continent.

The photo show is devoted to Rudy Valentino: King Of Gigolos of All Times!

Patrick, Genia, Corrie, Michael and all other guys who love this tune! I have to confess I have one more version of this text - and that will be quite a news for you, again!! :-)) It'll be my surprise for you one day, when I upload it

Grzegorz, Genia, Walter: the verse is an essential and poignant part of the lyrics and too bad it is often left out.

Yes, this is the beginning of the verse. Fabulous indeed.

Hello Grzegorz - Rudy surely looked great! He was extremely photogenic and charming inspite of the fact that the bio pics about him - mostly portray him as some kind of a "freak". I have skimmed some printed biographies and they are much more favorable even though factual. His life was interesting!
