Customer Review

on 14 December 2004
This double CD contains 29 live Compay Segundo performances. The first CD contains a conversation with Compay about his childhood and what he feels about his music. This is the original Spanish.
The CD split into "club" concerts and "theatre" concerts. I prefer the "clubs" side because it's a bit livelier and less polished than the "theatres" side, where the addition of clarinets and backing vocalists gives a more orchestral sound. Lots of good tracks, including an interesting son version of Carlos Gardel's "El Dia Que Me Quieras" and a great cover of "Malagueña". The cover of "Guantanamera" that closes the 2nd CD is a bit iffy (IMHO) but one cannot fault the enthusiasm of the performance.
Fairly good liner notes and full Spanish text of all the songs.
