This CD release is a little cheeky, as the Very Best of Gypsy Kings was released about seven years ago, which had all of these tracks on and a number of more, separated on to two discs: one with the dancey stuff and the other with their romantic tracks, (it's probably cheaper too!).
Anyhow, apart from this minor detail, regardless of what CD you choose, it will provide you with hours of fun and/or relaxation. So make yourself some sangria and put on Bamboleo, or run a bath and play Mi Manera. Whichever way you choose, this CD is a top buy.

Had this album a while ago, never fails to please.
It got so worn i have just ordered another copy, a first for me as i usually get bored with cd's quickly.
All my friends love it and its the first thing played at any bbq or party.
All in all a timeless great summer sound.

Super cheesy but great, and where else would you get Rumba Catalana versions of My Way, Volare and Hotel California? Had us dancing round the kitchen.

An excellent compilation album, particularly for the price. Would recommend this album to all music lovers. Ideal for use at parties, background music for meals or for anyone who appreciates good guitar, strong vocals and some unique cover versions of some old classics (my way, volare and hotel california).
All in all very pleased with my purchase.

This album has to be up there with the top 'Feel Good' albums. The song A Mi Manera (My Way) is just beautiful, and the upbeat tunes Bambaleo and Volare are sure to make you smile & lift your mood. All in all this album compliments a cold beer on a warm summers evening.

A collection of the Gypsy Kings' uplifting music. Great to dance to when feeling a little down - remember next to laughter dancing is the best medicine!

Bought this album to give as Xmas present but my daughter said to keep it to play on Boxing day as we were having friends over. I thoroughly enjoyed the album and so did guests, the only draw back, you felt like getting up to dance whilst tucking in to great food prepared by moi. Great surprise present to myself!!!

Depressed? Latin music is the best music to get you in very good mood : ) Just try, and your body will move... Also great for workout! This album will not disappoint you! Gipsy Kings are simply the best!

I became enamoured of Gypsy music many years ago at the instigation of a record shop owner and jazz enthusiast who was largely responsible for broadening my musical tastes. At that time, it was Django Reinhardt and the music was from the 40s and 50s. Recording quality was variable but I grew to like the sound.

The Gipsy Kings are not of the same style and more inclined towards Flamenco, thanks to their Spanish roots, but the enjoyment of the music is evident from the players' enthusiastic playing that invites the listener to join them. The vocals are rough, but they usually are in Flamenco!

Varied in content, I have listened to the disk many times and I am yet to be bored. It is one of several of their disks in my collection.

If your tastes veer towards jazz, may I also suggest that you seek out The Rosenberg Trio, a Swedish Gypsy guitar-based group, if you are not yet aware of their efforts. I enjoy both for their similarities and their distinctive differences.
