Album Recommendation 

Hi Folks,

Just about to start a wonderful exploration of everything Flamenco, can anyone recommend some "must hear" albums to get me moving.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Tam

Welcome

My current favourite is: Capullo De Jerez - En Directo
(Capullo is slang for "foreskin", I believe, and he is the singer).

Wonderful, just wonderful raw flamenco; live and probably not what you are expecting.

The flamenco movie by Saura, or it's sound track.

Tauromagia by Manolo Sanlucar.

If you want something more modern, a good collection is the Paco de Lucia 2-CD collection entitled, Anthologia.

For some traditional solo flamenco guitar, try Paco Pena's 2-CD collection entitled, Flamenco Guitar. The first CD are of his compositions, really good. While the 2nd are his interpretations of pieces by the great masters like Nino Ricardo and Ramon Montoya.

Regards,
Cheston

I think 'capullo' literally translates to 'dick-head' (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). It also means 'flower bud'. Capullo de Jerez says that his mother gave him the nickname when he was a kid. It's a play on his last name 'Flores', which means 'flowers'. At least that's what he claims.

Anyway, I agree that that's a great album. And they LOVE him in Jerez.

I think it also means "cocoon" and I was assuming "foreskin" was alluding to this as it covers the .... never mind, we won't go there

Welcome to the forum.

I would have to agree that Paco De Lucia's "Antologia 1 & 2" albums are ESSENTIAL listening. Personally, I didn't enjoy Manolo Sanlucar's "Tauromagia" because of the cante style, but I'd recommend his "Recital de Flamenco" album which is traditional solo guitar stuff). it is usually available on www.ebay.co.uk for a mere £4.99 (bargain!). If you're interested in a more modern sound, you might want to check out Gerardo Nunez' "Andando El Tiempo" album, as it is great. And Juan Martin has a few decent albums out too.


Enjoy!



James

Now please don't kill me, but Scirocco is not a favorite of mine. It's to much agressive picado and to much general show of to me. There are many other PDL albums I like a lot more.

Get down to earth with "Pepe Habichuela and the Bollywood strings" and "guitarra Gitana" by Tomatito.

Or get a good cante compilation like "medio siglo de cante flamenco" (4CD of puro y duro)

Yes, I wish he'd slow down so I could feel a bit better about my own playing!

Also, I've owned the "medio siglo" since 1990, and there is some great stuff in there. But I think it might be just too raw for someone just starting to listen to flamenco. Maybe it's safer to go with Paco y Camaron at first...

Hi Grisha.

I agree that Medio siglo is very raw, and that's why I put two albums, which I find are very good guitar albums and also good for plain listening with the friends.

The José Menese siguiriya + cabales on medio siglo, still blows me away, and this after having heard it I don't know how many times

Siroco has a very special mood. I disagree about it being a technical display. Perhaps some of his earlier work showed off his picado etc, but this one has lots of dynamics and space. It really brought in a new feeling to flamenco guitar playing when it came out. Maybe it is a bit heavy on reverb, but it is all part of the special mood.

Looks like everybody brought out modern flamenco albums in the last 3 or 4 decades. I'm searching for traditional flamenco albums for both solo and cante. Any suggestions?

For solo guitar I second Paul's suggestion of "The Fantastic Guitars of Sabicas and Escudero," as well as "Sabicas, Flamenco Puro," and "Nino de Ricardo" from the Grandes Figures Du Flamenco, Collection Dirigee Par Mario Bois/Voume 11.

For Cante, "La Inolvidable Voz de Antonio Nunez, El Chocolate" and "Antonio Fernandez, Fosforito." Anything you can get your hands on by La Nina de los Peines."

At the moment I'm going with Capullo de Jerez...all his album. I also love the Potitio with Vicente Amigo.

In the older stuff, Diego del Gastor with Utrera. Great duo for me.
