CD Reviews

Early Paco
R. Webb | Brooksville, Fl. United States | 03/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a guitar only recording and an opportunity to hear Paco prior to his jazz and latin influences. Paco was around twenty years old when this was made (1969) and his early virtuosity and incredable creativity at the Flamenco guitar is quite evident here. Also pieces that have become some of Paco's hallmarks are on ths recording. Such as "Guajiras de Lucia" and "Panaderos Flamencos". This c.d. will be a valued addition to your collection. Also recommended "La Fabulosa Guitarra De Paco De Lucia"."
This Album needs more stars than 5

"I have this on vinyl. I picked it up in a thrift store a million years ago. It sat in its jacket for a few years, then I finally got around to listening to it...I was riveted by its beautiful simplicity and virtuosity. If you are a classical guitar lover or a Hispanist (connosieur of things from Spain) you will be floored by Paco's talent. I enjoyed this album over and over much like someone does a fine reserve wine. The difference is that this won't run out. I do enjoy Paco's later works, Siroco is one of my favorites, but the pureness and youthful feel of this work gives it that something special. Nothing beats the feeling I get when he plays live though, the crowds interact with him like an involuntary response. Check it out."
Paco's 2nd solo album
Paul Magnussen | Campbell, CA USA | 08/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is from 1969 when Paco was 21, and when I first heard it it blew my mind. It's pure solo flamenco guitar at its finest: no bass, no percussion, no flutes or other clutter -- not even Paco's brother Ramón on 2nd guitar.

"Mantilla de feria" and "Panaderos flamencos" are both pieces by Esteban Sanlúcar, that Paco probably learned from Mario Escudero.

A landmark in the history of the flamenco guitar.

Some transcriptions of the music have now been published."
