CD Reviews

Hauntingly beautiful from start to finish

"GUANTANMERA was issued on vinyl as A&M LP 117 in mono and SP 4117 stereo back in 1966. The title song and "Louie Louie" (in Spanish) were both hit singles. The performances on each track are memorable. These guys know how to draw the in the listener. And "Angelica" has to be the saddest song ever sung. Now I would like to see the remaining Sandpipers studio albums come out on CD, maybe as 2-for-1 reissues. Those include SANDPIPERS (A&M SP 4125), MISTY ROSES (SP 4135), SOFTLY (SP 4147), THE WONDER OF YOU (SP 4180), COME SATURDAY MORNING (SP 4262) and A GIFT OF SONG (SP 4328)."

"This great classic album by The Sandpipers (their very best) was released during the summer of 1966. This was the album and version which made "GUANTANAMERA" known and acclaimed worldwide.
What had been until then a virtually unknown (abroad) cuban "guajira" song, became a milestone hit overnight. This great recording started a Guantanamera revival in its native land Cuba and its original creator Joseito Fernandez came out of the "mothballs" and became Cuba's most acclaimed artist, recording several versions of that great song, one of which its lyrics read as follows: "Guajira Guantanamera, hoy por el mundo admirada", which translates, "Guajira Guantanamera now admired the world over". "Admired" it was, it became the top charting hit of 1966, carrying well into the next 3 years or so.
Going back to our Sandpipers classic album, all other songs in
this album also became top hits. The acquisition of this CD is a must for all collectors. The original album cover was reproduced for this great CD, which increases its collectible value. Don't miss it!"
The French Song

"Can anyone help me identify the album from which the Sandpipers sung The French Song? That's the album I like to see on"
