CD Reviews

It Has Passed The 45-year Listening Test
Pete Sarantos | Seattle | 12/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this album in 1954 as a 10" LP, and still rate it as one of my all time favorites. Yma is not for everyone. My wife has had to listen to it for almost that long and her one word review is 'caterwauling'. For most of Yma's other albums, I can't completely disagree with her. But Sun Virgen hits me just right. It's good music and rates right up there with Belafonte and Cats."
Out of Control!
Pete Sarantos | 08/01/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yma Sumac has one of the most outrageous voices in the 20th Century. Her range is dizzying.... her shrill crys and hoots are borne on the wings of exotic birds in heat! Her no holds barred approach to lounge music is unprecidented even today these may years since her career ended."
The best Yma album
Beth | Mesa, AZ United States | 11/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album had been accused of being too Hollywood like. Mambo has been declared as the best of Yma's albums. I always have to decide between the two, but Legend wins mostly because of the fun Zana, why it isn't on the Ultimate album is questionable.
Yma Sumac has a voice like no other. She is a dazzling singer, who has reached octaves that no one has ever come close to. Whenever I decide to show people music of the bizarre I pull out Yma along with Mrs. Miller and Little Marcy.
I found Yma once in a record store under easy listening. She is in her own category so I can see the mistake. But she isn't easy listening. She's what I play to wake me up in the morning."
