Product Description

This budget-priced 10 CD-set features a unique collection of up to date Fado songs, presented by the current elite of the scene from Lisbon. The 10 CDs are sorted by themes, for example the "Best Of" Fado singers and beautiful Fados, played on the guitar. Fado is a form of Portuguese folk music dating back to the 1820s, and is often characterised by a sense of resignation, fatefulness and melancholia.

Good introduction to fada music. Lots of fada songs old and new from a wide range of Portuguese artists. Only half and hour per CD. Not a problem for me because I am able to load all the CDs into a Brennon Hard Disc.

Sound quality varies in strength and audibility. On some discs one needs to adjust the volume between tracks to an acceptable level. Some tracks appear to have been recorded from the within the venue where the artist was performing, but not from the performer's microphone, and therefore are very feint. Some tracks are not necessarily a studio recording.

A comprehensive cross section of Fado over time 27 July 2013
By G. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like it because it presents many artists and styles within Fado. Because many of the tracks are quite old, acoustically they are often not up to modern standards, but its a brilliant archive of the genre.
