Amazon.co.uk

With the dizzying array of recordings on the market claiming to be flamenco, it's hard for someone looking to discover the music to figure out what the music is, let alone which of the thousands of records available are worth the price. For both novices and those wishing to expand their knowledge of this Afro-Andalusian-Gypsy music, this three-CD set with a detailed and entertaining book is a must. From the deepest, most heart-stomping roots to the slickest pop crossovers, this set has endeavored to distill centuries of evolution into a few hours, and actually succeeds rather nicely. Whether your taste is for the simple guitar and palmas accompanying the raw, wrenching voice of Terremoto de Jerez, the Afro-Spanish explorations of Toumani Diabate, or the youthful exuberance of Pata Negra's flamenco rock, this set has it covered. Important artists are given a wider listening (the Paco de Lucia tracks offers a traditional bulerias instead of the jazz fusions he is well-known for). The whole set would be worth its price just to hear the gorgeous tones of La Niña de los Peines, whose voice was one of the wonders of the flamenco world. Her 1930s recording included in this set is priceless. --Louis Gibson

Consider buying the second disc, "Magic," separately 12 Feb. 2000
By William E. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent collection of flamenco music. There are three discs; one comprises mainly singers, another artists who are stretching the genre into new areas, and one, called "Magic," is dedicated to guitarists. This last one is the only one I listen to. Granted, I am a guitarist with an interest in playing and listening to guitar-centered flamenco. However, I would guess that many associate flamenco with dazzling guitar playing. And that is what this CD offers with most tracks having a level of recording clarity often absent in flamenco compilations. The tracks, particularly the more recently recorded ones on the front half of the CD, are all truly amazing. This is easily stands out as my favorite flamenco compilation. If what you like about flamenco is the flashy guitar playing, consider buying this CD by itself - they are all sold separately.
Duende -- it's far more than mere passion. 8 July 2014
By Aleleeinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Duende is a fantastic collection of Flamenco music.
The traditional (1st CD) has some amazing performances and is very well recorded. Listen to "El Rio de Me Sevilla"; wonderful guitar and some amazing singing.
The second CD features flamenco guitar perfoemances. virtuousity is a given. absolutely first rate performances from the best guitarists. I have only one complaint. The grand father of Flamenco is not on the disc. Carlos Montoya should be be represented.
Disc three is the biggest surprise. The modern treatment of Flamenco worked v ery well. The sould of Flamenco remains while the form is integrated with other styles. The material is varied in approach, but remains true to the roots.
This set is a real find. I recomend it to anyone who want to take big step into Flamenco and to those who already know this music.
Little gem of a collection 8 Jun. 2010
By Sansón Carrasco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having bought this three-CD set in 1994 and enjoyed it immensely before losing it some years ago I was delighted to find it here on Amazon. These three CDs cover quite a wide swath of flamenco ground, from very early recordings of Pastora Pavón to things barely recognizable as flamenco at all. Of particular note is that every other recording I have run across of Camarón singing the Romance del amargo has a strange and unfortunate overproduced echoing quality to it - think a $200 shelf stereo with crappy DSP effects. The recording on this disc does not have that overproduction and sounds excellent. Highly recommended whirlwind tour of flamencology. Liner notes/booklet also interesting and informative.
