(5 out of 5 stars)
"Another fantastic collection of Boleros that Jose recorded in the 1960's. I don't want to repeat myself over and over again but I don't know any other way of saying this Jose Feliciano is and always be the greatest interpreter of the Bolero and of romantic music in general. I love all of the songs on this CD, however, there are three in particular that are favorites of mine such as "La Copa Rota" which was a #1 hit for Feliciano in 1968 and there is also "Amor Gitano" a song he recorded in Venezuela in 1967 and was another major hit and probably the saddest song on the album but also the most beautiful in my opinion "Nosotros" which means (US) not as in United States but as in two people. I give this album another 5 star rating because it deserves it. I would like to make one thing clear of why I'm always giving Jose Feliciano 5 stars. In my opinion the man walks on water simply put I see him as a another GOD. To me he can never do no wrong. However, in reality I rate his albums the way I do simply because the music is of the highest caliber both written and performed. You don't have to worship him to know that he is a superb and brilliant musician, anyone who knows about music and especially what good music should sound like will agree with me that Jose is a rare breed an in a class all by himself. As far as this CD is concerned is another example for the listener to enjoy and get to know Jose's early spanish roots which is the musical genre known as the Bolero for which Feliciano became a household word all over North and South America before he made his way to superstardom in 1968 in the United States and the rest of the world. This is for Jose Feliciano, JOSE if you ever get the opportunity to have someone read my reviews of your work to you all I want to say is THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for providing my life with so much inspiration and so much GREAT music. I think you're awesome and simply put you're the BEST there is. Keep rockin' my friend I love you. I hope to see you in concert for the 35th time sometime soon. Peace, to you and your family."
