"Such beautiful voices and able to understand every word. Songs are varied. Some songs are contempary, even for today, and some songs remind me of music from my youth - many years ago. Have a glass of wine, close your eyes and enjoy."
One great song

"Once in a great while I hear a perfect song -- sung and played so well that improvement is impossible. "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler and "Suspicous Minds" by Elvis Presley come to mind. (For those who dissent, please be tolerant. I never made any claim to have good musical taste!) "Eres Tu" ("It is you") is such a song. The slightly stressed and hoarse vocal by the female lead, the lush choral background, the guitar strumming are perfect. Even the phrasing is great. I love the lisped -- "esperantha" for "esperanza" -- a Spanish affectation that I usually find cloying. And the rolled "r" of "guitarra" is downright thrilling -- or is that trilling? Well, ok, one great -- perfect -- song, and a bunch of fair to good songs make for a four star rating. Despite being in Spanish, "Eres Tu" was a hit in the U.S. in the 1970s or thereabouts. The other songs are unknown, at least to me."
Bought mainly for the hit, rest of CD pretty enjoyable too

"We all know what a great song Eres Tu is, so we'll skip to the rest.
The music itself varies quite a bit on this CD. Amantes, on the other hand, is cut from the same cloth; Eres Tu fans will probably enjoy this song as well.
The production values were as bad as I've heard on a CD. I don't expect that era to have as clean a sound, but there were also occasional dropouts in a couple of the songs. Very distracting. I am hoping that the original material does not suffer from this.
One other thing: I'm not sure they've done this yet, but I think the Eres Tu lovers (myself not excluded) would enjoy an appearance of Touch The Wind somewhere on a CD. It was an English version to Eres Tu, the B-side of the 45. Not equivalent lyrics, but also very enjoyable.
