Pracatan!! Yes for all those fans this is probably a must. You've no doubt seen her, joined at the hip with her ever prevelant, tempo-jolting keyboard, adorned head to toe in glitz and feather boa, marvelous! A very subtle intro by Margarita's promoter Clive James but no one would want to outshine Pracatan. The CD is bursting of all her famous covers from Abba's "Take a Chance on Me" to Lionell Richie's "Hello". Her voice, a little rough at the edges dictated by the tempo of her keyboard belts out track after track. It's not the vocal content you look for when you hear this CD, it's her charisma, perseverance and whitty humour throughout. You'll love the saucy jokes and sassy lines between the tracks which make you feel as though you are one of the lucky ones to be under her cobra like command, live on stage. It had me in tears of laughter!

What can I say about that unique musical force of nature, Margarita Pracatan? For those familiar with the lady and her one-of-a-kind renditions of well known songs, no explanation is necessary. Forget subtlety. Forget technical prowess. That's not what this divine diva is about at all! She doesn't "play" her keyboard as much as wrestle it into submission. And she doesn't sing with the grace and control of a Streisand, Minelli, or Patsy Cline either: she hurls her vocals out into the void and hopes for the best. And she does it all with unbridled passion and joy. Strict tempos and keys are not in her musical vocabulary - a four-to-the-bar verse can stretch to something virtually unrecognisable...and yet it all makes perfect sense - especially if you're in the audience at one of her shows. This is entertainment at it's most primitive, yet intimate. Classic "Standards" are flattened, the Beatles are mauled to within an inch of their lives and, if you've never heard her 'quirky' take on Lionel Richie's "Hello"...well...then, you haven't lived! Sure, Margarita Pracatan, won't be for everyone, but if you have a broad sense of humor (or a sense of the sweetly ridiculous), you're sure to find something to love and cherish about her. So, I'd urge those brave enough to give "Margarita Pracatan Live" a try. I guarantee, you'll be the envy of your friends who DON'T yet own a copy of this little gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new Mrs. Miller - and much better 13 Mar. 2001
By Fjalar Sigurdarson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Those who remember Mrs. Miller - a very enthusiastic elderly singer in the 70's - can rejoice. Margarita Pracatan is here. What she may lack in talent or singing she makes up for by her sheer enthusiasm and love of music. I have played this CD for all my friends and visitors and they have all been totally taken aback by her renderings of such classics as Hello - Take a chance on me and many other golden hits. Pracatan not only sings but accompanies her own voice on the syntheziser. Although she sometimes has to struggle with a button or two to get the correct tempo for the drums or background, she breezes through it all with a contagious laughter and pure joy. It is a dead person who does not listen to this CD with tears inhis/her eyes, be they tears of sorrow or more likely - pure joy :-)
