Quite Possibly the Greatest Flamenco Guitar Cd ever heard...
fetish_2000 | U.K. | 03/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Largely considered the finest Flamenco Guitarist on his generation, (possibly ever), this is some of the most affecting beautiful composed music I've heard in recent times. Paco's ability to carry a song with just his guitar and the most subtle of backing musicians is quite awe-inspiring. He moves from complex delicate guitar rhythmic arrangements, to furiously intense rapid fire passages that will almost certainly invoke an response of complete awe & admiration for what he does better than anyone else. This is an Anthology of (a Limited 2 Cd version) that complies his two `Antologia' albums into 2 disks (1 disk for each Anthology), and for a double album that weights in at over 24 tracks, you'd think that you'd have had your fill of Contemporary Flamenco, way before then....but you'd be wrong, spreading the listening experience a disk at a time (over 2 days) not only left me with an unquenchable thirst for more of his work, but has that astute honour of being the most remarkable album, I've heard for sometime, and that's with some truly exceptional competition, utter genius. And it should also be noted that this is a perfect introduction into Paco's sublime music if your new to this particular artist."

"I am not 'really' giving the CD a 1, I am only suggesting you look harder.

Paco de Lucia is a genius, and I urge you to seek out his music, including Antologia. But there are two different versions. Look for the two volume set with the red and yellow packaging, it will come as two separate and independent CDs. This version that I am reviewing here with a black cover labeled Import seems to be volume one, but the one I got in Spain is the red and yellow version, and much cheaper. It is very worth your time to hunt down both CDs. CD1 has many of the works he is best known for, but CD2 is a gem in which you understand his real ability to improvise in this form."
