I too remember this record from long ago. I heard some of the tracks on the radio (BBC Home Service as Radio 4 used to be known) but I never owned the LP. I bought other LPs by Almeida, who was for me up there with Segovia and Bream, including the follow-up to this album - "Conversations with the Guitar" - and several solo guitar records, including a lovely Villa-Lobos selection. My Villa-Lobos LP was stolen years ago and, sadly none of Almeida's classical records seem to be available on CD, apart from this one. Which is a beauty.
Oddly enough, Almeida's jazz collaborations with Bud Shank are/were available on CD. I wish that the other Capitol classical LPs were reissued. Especially that Villa-Lobos!
