If you have never heard about fado, this is an extremely good introduction. It is mainly about the career of Amália Rodrigues, who was the Queen of Fado in the twentieth century, as Mariza may become the Queeen of Fado in the twenty first. Amália's gifted voice is breathtaking. She was a masterful singer. And you can listen to other great fado performers too.

never mind the bargain price...this is a superb collection of a much undervalued genre performed by the queen of Fado. Cannot recommended too highly

I'm portuguese and I can say that is the best music collection of FADO that I ever see. Great classics mix with great contemporary singers. And the best of all, AMÁLIA RODRIGUES (best FADO singuer ever) all hits. If you like FADO don't miss this collection.

Super recordings. Even if you can't understand all the words, well-sung fado comes across as the beautiful laments that they are. In Amalia Rodrigues' voice they are stunning; if you like fado, they'll raise the hairs on the back of your neck!

This two disc version combines a complete disc-full of Amalia Rodriques - the greatest performer of Fado - as well as being crucial to Fado's development and it's place in the worldwide history of music.
The second disc is full of an amazing selection of some of the other great Fado performers.
The recordings are good too - not the depth or detail of those made on modern equipment, but I'm sure that the oldest recordings have been remastered so that they're clean and musical.
Listening pleasure - that only grows.
Now to save up for a Coimbra Guitarra...

This selection highlights the range of one of the most famous fado singers ever. If you love fado, you will like this. The songs were evidently recorded some considerable time ago, so perhaps do not sound so fresh as newer recordings by modern artists, but that is not a drawback for me.
