Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Artistically great; flawed package

"This cd has 20 tracks, with AR backed by guitars. Actually, about a half dozen or so of the tracks are instrumental only. The quality of the recordings is not good - the producers have done little to clean them up. The liner notes only give a brief bio of AR, and for the tracks just the title, composer, and length. No information on recording dates other than to say they are "her first recordings, dating from 1945..." It's obviously a budget disc - you get what you pay for!
I am new to fado, so I can't comment as to the historical or artistic significance of these "first recordings." Still, the beauty and passion comes through. I would look for a cleaner recording first, though."
