CD Reviews

Not the best of More.
RICHARD PERIUT MD | NJ, USA | 06/07/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this collection thinking it was similar to a tape I had of More's best hits. It was a bit ironic to see that More's best hits are not in this collection. The only ones I really cared for are track 14 and 16. The rest are just too monotonous, although original.If you buy this CD and listen to More for the first time, you are sure to miss out on the best of his works--not included here!"
OK but not my favorite of Beny

"This CD is OK but I disagree with a previous reviewer (agree with another one); this CD is by far not the best of Beny. I recommend the BMG Tropical Series "The Very Best of Beny More", Vol. 1 and 2, not only in song selections but in recording quality. I grew up in Cuba in the 50's and playing those two CDs is like going back to my teens listening to Beny on the radio. WOW...."
