CD Reviews

A master of the guitar
F. A. Soares | Modesto, Ca USA | 12/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have loved great guitar playing all my life and I have to say that Carlos Paredes is one of the best in the world, and definitely of Portugal. This CD exemplifies that great tradition of excellent guitar playing that is present throughout Portugal and now has spread to many other parts of the world. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes to listen to great guitar playing from a man that knows how to play. I would recommend this CD to anyone even if you are not Portuguese, you will not be disappointed."
Glorious and bittersweet

"Somehow, when you're in the throes of depression, listening to truly great depressing music is a beautiful catharsis. I mean no offense in saying that this album contains truly great depressing music, up there with John Dowland and the best of Chris Isaak.

Paredes was (alas, he's no longer with us) a virtuoso of the Portuguese guitar, and this album shows his skill as a composer and performer beautifully. "Cancão Verdes Anos" is by itself worth the price of admission."
A cd for any guitar player...this was a guitar Master

"Carlos Paredes was a very talented guitar player with lots of soul.....
He plays this wonderfull traditional guitar of 12 strings like noone else...mainly this guitar is used on "Fado" (dark and missing lyrics songs)
He is famouse because of this song "Verdes Anos" and i have to say it's worth this all album!

From what i've heard this cd was offered to Ben Harper in one of his shows here and he got blown away!!!

Rest in peace Carlos..your music will live forever"
