CD Reviews

Compay's best
Stephen Taylor | Chapel Hill, North Carolina | 02/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Compay Segundo's rich, throaty voice is a perfect accompaniment to the twangy, slightly out-of-tune armonico guitar he plays on here, which makes "Lo mejor de la vida" a step up from a couple of his other recordings, especially the windy "Calle Salud", which I thought was too top-heavy with clarinets and saxophones. Compay is always at his best, but the accompaniment here truly shines, a fine sugar coating on the tip of this pungent old Cuban cigar.The reviewer below was dead on. Segundo's sound truly is unique and irreplaceable. This is definitely "the best of life". Great stuff! Get it."

"El Maestro Francisco "Compay" Segundo is perhaps Cuba's ambassador of its fine folk music. Like many people have said, it is a SHAME that his music is barely trespassing the island's boundries in last couple of years. The vocals, the acoustic guitar rythyms and the Afro-Cuban drums are simply out of this world. You will never regret buying this CD. Long live Compay!"
Loved it from the first time I listened

"I now have 20 CDs by various artists associated with the Buena Vista Social Club project, and I fell in love with this one from the very first listening. Of the 14 tracks, "Cuba y España" is the only one of which I find tedious. On the other extreme, "Es Mejor Vivir Así" is, by itself, probably worth the price of the whole CD.Most of the rest are excellent. Some of merely wonderful. If you're a fan of Compay Segundo's, this one should definitely be in your collection."
