5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing introduction to flamenco 24 April 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't say i'm an absolute convert to flamenco. A bit like jazz it often works live and dies on disc. But this cheepo CD must be one of its most eloquent advocates.
It captures instantly from the opening deep moorish quartertones and thereafter never fails to retain interest. I've played it endlessly and everywhere.
If you don't like flamenco you ought to listen to this, if you do you shouldn't need more persuasion

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Flamenco is right! 9 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Paco is on fire on most of these tracks. Flamenco is about soul, passion and rhythm and this collection has the lot... Covering a wide variety of Flamenco styles it is a a great introduction to the art as well as being a fantastic album in its own right. After 2 months of ownership, it still occupies the prime spot on top of the CD player, ready to go at a moment's notice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous? Absolutely! 29 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just want to thank the previous reviewers whose unreserved praise and enthusiasm for this CD persuaded me to buy it. A lifetime of listening to mainly rock music makes this type of music seem strangely exotic to me. There's more variety to flamenco than I'd imagined and most of it makes me feel like dancing, but even the more sombre numbers make me feel quite mellow and content. It can change my state of mind after a day of being wound up, ground down and worn out. I join the throng of reviewers recommending this Fabulous Flamenco!

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 28 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely out of this world, Paco Pena may be the best way to start listening to the great flamenco music, it makes you want to get up and dance, at another point it makes you relax, it's all in here, I cannot stop listening to it and I have lent it to many friends who told me it is an absolute gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmosphere, melody, drama, mood........... 17 Dec 2006
By Ian
Format:Audio CD
Fabulous Flamenco indeed, great value for money and fully worthy of 5 stars.

I brought this CD trying to find my own 'Duende' after reading a book of the same title.

Forget package holiday restaurants and show bars - Uncle Paco is the real deal.

You can almost smell the Paella, taste the Rioja and feel the drama and tension of the moods being displayed. It's somewhat tonally erotic in part with many a Blanco being put through its paces to the beat of the dancer's heart. ( ...and you just know that the dancer in question is a dark haired gypsy girl wearing a red dress, and she's smiling at you - you'll know what I mean when you listen to this.... )

The agility, speed and sheer brilliance of the playing is imposible to describe and difficult to comprehend.

Once you've heard this you'll want to go and see it live. Make sure you do.

Hear it, taste it, feel it ! Comfortably recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flamenco of a rare quality 21 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
Once, as a teenager, I owned an lp with the first ten tracks of this cd. A guitar novice myself I knew this was the music I desperately wanted to play. Unashamedly festive, these songs, with lots of handclapping, are of a rare quality.

It is quite unusual to find one of flamenco's great masters play pretty folksy tunes like these. Still, ultimately I love this down to earth approach to flamenco more than the more subtle one, like Paco Pena in his later works.

Twenty years on, I can still listen to these tracks every day. Needless to say, I never ever became anything of a virtuoso guitar player myself, not even mastering a decent sevillanas, as performed brilliantly in the second track of this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best flamenco cd you can buy 24 May 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm someone who plays flamenco and this is a superb collection of flamenco music.Flamenco is poetry and even the names of the various flamenco styles featured here:solea,bulereas,millonga,sevillanas -to name a few - sound poetic.The inlay card gives the history of each piece that is played and a summary of Paco Penas career.You get your money's worth.
Probably the best flamenco cd on the market in terms of broad appeal to lots of different kinds of people - there are more profound recordings by artists such as Juan Martin and John Williams but they are not as light,breezy and full of joy.
