These 2 months marked my entry into a new genre of musical enchantment. I used to like pop, rock and jazz (still do), but a chance introduction to the romantic and seductive sounds made simply by an acoustic guitar got my motors firing on all cylinders... I am totally mesmerised and i've fallen in love with the music of the acoustic guitars. I hv. NEVER heard any of these masterful artistes' names ever before in this GREAT album. The music from this album earns 100 stars! (out of five) Thereon, I have purchased more CDs than i've previously did in 10 months! In a short two months, i've collected the following albums; Jesse Cook:- "Free Fall" "Vertigo" and "Gravity" Ottmar Liebert:- "Innamorare - Summer Flamenco" Armik:- "Rubia" "Rosas del Amor" and "Gypsy Flame" Oscar Lopez:- "Armando's Fire" Next, I'm planning to purchase a couple from "Govi"...

It is a fine collection of energetic, up-tempo, well-rendered and well-sequenced songs in the 'nuevo flamenco' style. Contributions from Govi, Young & Rollins, Strunz & Farah, Ottmar Liebert, Nova Menco, Oscar Lopez, and other artists make it first rate. I'll guarantee it. Most of these tunes will cause you to dance in your car or your office chair, or just plain get up and dance. My spouse brought it home after hearing it playing in Borders. We soon discovered this is great car-driving music, especially with the sunroof and windows open, hair flowing in the wind. I recommend you purchase this CD and put it in your player. It will make your...
