Bud and Travis CD is a treasure
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bud and Travis (Bud Dashiell and Travis Edmonson) were arguably the greatest of the American folk-boom groups of the late 50s and early 60s. B&T introduced Latin-American folk music to a mass American audience, paving the way for later Latin crossover artists from Linda Ronstadt to Gloria Estafan to Los Lobos. Their European and American folk repertoire was also incomparable, so much so that rock and pop luminaries as diverse as David Crosby and Frank Sinatra have publicly cited B&T's influence. Bud and Travis were also the most featured performer on the soundtrack to the television show *Northern Exposure*.The *Best of Bud and Travis,* the first-ever CD release by this legendary duo, provides an excellent overview of the group's range and talents. Just some of the many highlights are the gorgeous *boleros* "Malaguena Salerosa" (their signature piece), "Amor De La Calle," "Cielito Lindo Son Juasteco," and "No Me Quieras Tanto". Other standouts are "Bonsoir Dame" (from *Northern Exposure*), "Delia's Gone," and "Vamos Al Baile."This CD will leave you disappointed in only one area: the omission of several B&T essential standards (most notably "Truly Do" and "Anna"). But that just means we will have to demand a second B&T CD from Collector's Choice!"

"Absolutely superb! We finally have a cd of this terrific duo, masterful and powerful music. Some of their best cuts. The only downside [if there is one], is the absence of one of their very finest pieces: Raspberries, Strawberries. Pray that their other albums will soon be out on cd!"
Bud and Travis Finally on CD

"I, along with Tom Straw (who very expertly maintains the Bud and Travis website) wrote the liner notes for the CD, thanks to Gordon Anderson of Collectors' Choice Music. Gordon asked me to select the titles for the CD, so I'm the one who deserves all the credit, OR BLAME, for the titles there. I picked what I liked, knowing others would disagree. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that at least SOME of your Bud and Travis favorites are on the CD. Let's hope Collectors' Choice will ultimately release ALL of their albums intact on CD -- as they were originally released. Let Gordon Anderson at CC Music know if you will buy future Bud and Travis releases."
