Antonio Machin - Dos Gardenias (1947)

Antonio Machín was a Cuban singer and musician. He had an extensive recording career singing with various Spanish bands; the total of recordings in Europe may be as many as four hundred, giving him a lifetime total of about 600 numbers recorded. If that is approximately right, he would be one of the most recorded Cuban singers of the 20th century, but behind Celia Cruz. "Dos Gardenias" was one of his more popular songs.
