"I first heard Raphael sometime in the late 60's. I was living in St.Croix, US Virgin Islands at the time and left in the spring of 1969. It would have been sometime between 1967 and 1969 that I first heard him sing. I remember the first time listening to his singing as clealy as I do first hearing Joan Baez. They both had a purity and resonance that made me sit back and listen in total awe. I listened to every song I could of both Joan and Raphael but unfortunately any records were lost when I came back to Canada. Over the years, I would think from time to time of his singing but the few feeble attempts I made to obtain an album met with no success. It was only since I started using the Internet that I began making serious efforts to locate some of the old songs that I used to love. I had no luck with Raphael because that's all I knew...Raphael. Imagine my surprise when, yesterday, I accessed Napster and, through their search engine, found him through the one fact I knew...his songs were all in Spanish..Puerto Rican..whatever...as soon as I downloaded Yo Soy Aquel, I knew I had the right one....now through Napster and yourselves, I can order the album of a lifetime..30 Anniversario....thank you and thank Napster."
No solo un gran cantante, también un inmenso artista

"Raphael no solo canta bien, ademas te hace sentir lo que canta mediante una capacidad de comunicación reservada a unos pocos. No me cabe duda que caso de haber nacido en EE.UU. haría sombra a Frank Sinatra."
Raphael still as good as he was in 1969
