Favorite albums? 

Hola amigos! I've got a lot of time to listen to music this summer while school's out but I've found surprisingly few really great new flamenco albums. So I think it's time for another "favorite albums" thread to get the best of them out there

For starters, here's my list of all-time personal classics (no particular order, probably missing some, or some that shouldn't be there, but oh well!):

Manolo Sanlúcar - Tauromagia
Camarón - La Leyenda del Tiempo
PdL - Almoraima
Emilio Maya - Temple
Vicente Amigo - Ciudad de las Ideas
Enrique Morente - Omega
Estrella Morente - Mi Cante y un Poema
Gerardo Núñez - Andando el Tiempo (close second, Jucal)
Armik - Flamenco Passion (kidding!!)
Ricardo - Madera Sonora
Tomatito - Paseo de los Castaños

Any of these you don't have should be promptly bought and enjoyed!

What would everyone else put as the albums they can't live without?

RE: Favorite albums? (in reply to Adam

vicent amigo - de mi corazon al aire
im getting more and more attached to paseo de gracia

every lole y manuel cd but especially nueva dia

lole's solo cd - metafora

paco de lucia - cositas buenas
and basically every cd that i have of his

duquende - mi forma de vivir
samaruco
and the one with tomatito

estrella morente - mi cante y un poema

ricardo - madera sonora

carmen linares - raices y alas

carmen amaya - the cd from the grandes figures du flamenco series

that's all i can think of right now. it's what i listen to in the car over and over again.

edit: oh and la tobala's cd is pretty cool. there's one song that's stuck in my head right now. sounds like she's singing "eat jelly, eat jelly." lol it's the second song.

Anything that says Poveda or Chicuelo somewhere on the cover.

That being said the most recent Poveda/Chicuelo team-up, Cante i Orquestra is AMAZING.

Hi Ramparts

Nice to see two of Harold's recordings on your list.

I recently bought a triple album, from 1999, called Aire de Jerez. Each Cd is from a different family, The Zambos, Moneos and De La Morena. We've had it playing non stop in the car ever since, Harold drives and I practise my compás. I totally recommend it !

I've said before but my other favourite is a two CD set called ' Los Gitanos canta Lorca' I never tire of that one. Camerón's "Leyendo del Tiempo" is on there, and it always makes me laugh as it rushes along. Harold is filming a documentary about this track, travelling all over and recording different versions, Rafa De Utrera in Amsterdam with a full orchestra, and Duquende in Barcelona. He was due to interview Tomatito in Almería but that has been postponed Still it will be an interesting documentary when it is done.

Did you ever get a copy of Al Kantara ? I was thinking it would be great for your radio show. Paco himself, yes that one, said it was the best ever Andalusi /flamenco fusion record he had ever heard. The production company want to rerelease it but if not we will have to pirate it

Harold's making a documentary about La Leyenda del Tiempo?? You have to let us know when that's done

Is Al Kantara the one you told me I had to get at Carmen de las Cuevas? I think that was near the end of my stay and I didn't have time to get it, unfortunately. Any chance it can be acquired...hmm...by other means?

Fabulous Flamenco


that album is amazing, something really cool about Paco his sound, the compositions its like a hommange to all the great players of yester year.

i really like Rafael requeni's compositions, when i read through like some Transcriptions i can really feel his dedication to the art of flamenco.

for me i love the albums where its often solo guitar played to the max serranito also is amazing, i like the less processed recordings and the play too the max virtuosity !
