Thanks, I've got the 3 tracks that have been released so far, but it's great to hear the others.

The sequence going from the bulerias to the alegrias, passing through the siguiriya, the zapateados and the solea is like a rollercoaster of insane guitar playing... it's stunning!

Thanks for the link. I'm listening to the zapateado right now, a couple of cool sections in there. As for it sounding like bulerias... the zapateado is more of a straight 6/8 or brisk triplet feel 123,456. But there is an apregio section there that did remind me of of the intro to Gitano de Lucia which has more of that 6/8, feeling the accents of 12-3, 6-9, feel imo.

So does anybody know what guitar he used for the recording? I've heard it may have been one of his new branded guitars instead of the Reyes

The promotional pictures for the album have him posing with his signature Navarro model, but listening to the album closely it really sounds like his Reyes.
Where did you hear that he used his Navarro to record this album?

for those who can't afford/don't want to buy the CD for whatever reason, the album is also on streaming services like tidal and spotify.

I just found this board looking for opinions / reviews of the album. Glad to see people are liking it!

Just got it from Amazon right now. I'll edit with my own impressions.

RE: Vicente Amigo - Memoria de los S... (in reply to avimuno

I was just about to order the CD when I noticed one place advertising for sale the 'standard version', another listing says it includes a 'digibook' - just wondering if any of you guys can shed light on this, i.e. what different versions are for sale and what this digibook entails?


Edit - a quick Google tells me that a digibook is a way to package CDs comprising a small hardcover booklet, with a sleeve for the CD inside.....so I guess my question is what's in the booklet that presumably isn't in the standard CD?

Sounds like the packaging. Digipack is what they call the cardboard CD case, vs the plastic "jewel" case.

Yeah digipack is cardboard case,but digibook is apparently something more substantial, like a small book.

mine came yesterday, having been pre-ordered for me on Valentine's day (ahh!).

It's the hardback book version, front and back cardboard about 1 1/2 mm thick, disc inside a sleeve stuck inside back cover, and 8 glossy pages of the letras, credits and b/w photos of Vicente (including one of him when he must have been about 10!), also 1 page is some moorish architecture, one appears to be a starry night sky (!), and inside front cover some out of focus vegetation (?!).

hope that helps!

I think it's fair to say that Vicente is back. No riverdance choruses finishing the tracks, no synth, great guitar and great guest singers.

I so much liked the previous ones for the originality and previously unheard things I found in them but I just can't feel the same for Memoria de los Sentidos.

But of course Vicente keeps making the guitar sing like it's out of this world...

Ju no have google translate Ramz??? haha jk It's usually crap but I plugged it in to speed the typing up and was gonna adjust things the way I thought was more accurate but this looks pretty decent unedited.

It will be the land
It will be the suns
Seas and moons that you miss.

It will be flamenco
Who with more strength
I miss you and I cry to you.

It will be Sevilla, it will be Triana
It will be Santiago. Cadiz, Granada
They will be my dreams forever yours
The land will be dry and wet.

Sorry but this isn't accurate. This copla refers to Paco de Lucia again so here it goes:

The land
The suns
The seas and the moons will miss you.

It will be the flamenco
That with more strength
Will miss you and will cry for you

Seville, Triana,
Santiago, Cádiz, Granada,
(and ) My dreams forever will be yours
(so will) The land, dry and wet.

Just got mine through the post - not easy to get in UK, I had to import it from Germany. I'm sure that will be be costing a fortune more to do in a couple of years

Anyhow, sublime guitar playing and more cante (both overall amount and number of guest singers) than usual for a solo guitar album I would say. The latter really helps elevate things IMO.

For me his finest compositions are on the first two or three albums but this is still a really good album.

Hi, I've always liked a lot the works of Vicente but Tierra, which was a little too much world-music IMHO.
In many things he composed (before the current album) I listen to the flavour of Pat Metheny more than flamenco.
The last album of Josemi Carmona went even more towards jazz.
Anyway Vicente is a great player and a big influencer. Good music is good music.
