Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
The multi-million selling Gipsy Kings showcase the romantic side of their repertoire with "Cantos de Amor," drawing from their extensive catalogue of albums to date. Many favorite songs including "Un Amor," "Tu Quieres Volver," and "Love and Liberte" are featured, as well as the previously unreleased "Gitano Soy." Gentle but passionate is the tone of these 15 tracks, including several instrumentals, and where the Gipsy Kings may use polished production values, the music of this Gitane gypsy troupe retains the drama and sensuality of their roots. Flamenco style guitars and fervent vocals make this the ideal seductive backdrop, or a backdrop to seduction, understandable across all language and cultural borders. --Derek Rath

Gipsy kings are the BEST
08/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All the Gipsy kings albums are great, this one being my favorite. The gipsy kings have a sound like no other. They always relax me and make me feel better. This album is so sensual and romantic. I give this album 5 stars++++++++."
An Excellent Sampler

"The Gipsy Kings, who sing mostly in Spanish and apparently live and record in France -- go figure --, are incredibly prolific. Unless one is insatiable for lots of flamenco guitar and gypsy music, the collections, either this one or best of or both, will probably suffice. The disc includes a couple instrumentals and, as the title suggests, all the songs are of love, frequently the leaving kind of love (both leaver -- No Volvere -- and left -- Tu Quieres Volver). My single favorite is the lilting Caminando Por la Calle, love at first beat and some wonderful la-la vocalizing. Other picks: Mi Corazon, Hable Me, Mujer. Some will be interested to know that My Way (A Mi Manera) is better in Spanish, but not by much. Overall, very enjoyable music."
