More Info:

Deluxe casebound packaging. Two years after the release of Grammy Award winning, nine million selling Buena Vista Social Club, many of the same musicians went back into the studio to record the debut album of Ibrahim Ferrer, one of the stars of the BVSC. With Ry Cooder producing, the release went on to sell over one and half million copies world-wide and elevate Ibrahim to superstar status. The CD album is a collection of eleven songs by the golden voice of Cuban music, as seen in the Buena Vista Social Club film, and follows the LP release earlier this year. Using the Buena Vista Social Club rhythm section and featuring the piano of Rubén González, this album takes the listener on a very different journey to that of any other Cuban record. It is an album of great subtlety and beauty, featuring an extraordinary stylistic range from the nostalgic 1950s American big band style, to stunning ballads with an unusual and opulent guitar accompaniment, as well as rich country-style songs. Now for the very first time World Circuit are releasing the album on deluxe casebound CD featuring the original song notes.
