Product Description

Amazon.com

On 1997's Compas the Gipsy Kings stretched out into new traditional sounds while adroitly maintaining their patented pop blend. During the Gypsy people's centuries of wandering, they picked up a mosaic of musical influences on the road and made them their own. To reflect this historical development in music, two Egyptian musicians, Hossam Ramzy (percussion) and Abud Abdel Al (violin), add Middle Eastern embellishments to the guitar-driven mix. The Brazilian percussion master Nana Vasconcelos also sits in, as does Shawn Farrenden on didgeridoo. The sole sour note is the inclusion of the Italian chestnut "Funiculi Funicula", which lowers the tone but which will no doubt delight restaurateurs. --Christina Roden

I'm mystified by Amazon's decision to list this as one of the group's Essential Recordings. It's definitely the weakest of the bunch, although a couple of the songs are OK. If you want the flamenco rhythms the Gipsy Kings are known for, I prefer Love and Liberte, but any of the other albums are better than this one. If you want unplugged sound, try Allegria; if you want the middle eastern-Moorish musical influence, Mosaique is far superior.

Compas is another excellent Album from the famous Gipsy Kings. It is a little different from the other albums but don't get me wrong, it is still a very good one. It must be their most inventive album ever and their most atmospheral one. Standout tracks are: Ami Wa Wa (Solar Por Ti), La Fiesta Comenza, Canto A Brazil, Mi Nino and the beautiful Di Me. The instumental tracks are all brilliant. This album is very recommended, for every one.

I am a diehard GK fan! I fell in love with them after hearing "Bamboleo". I think they are a fantastic group to introduce the world to Latin music. After hearing just one song, you will fall in love with the ancient gypsy and arabic sounds that are blended with classic instruments. The big plus is the voice of Nick Reyes who is sometimes hard and unstoppable, making you feel the pain of loss or the smooth sensuous voice that makes you feel the passion of love. Their music reflects the landscape of Spain and its history. I visited Spain in February and heard their music many times on the radio. When I want to remember my great time in Spain, I listen to the Gypsy Kings.

This is an excellent collection of some of the Gipsy King's great music. It is lively, inspirational, music to dance to and to enjoy. From the softer, livelier ballads to the slower tempo music. This is great gipsy music to enjoy! I would highly recommend this for your collection!

This is a more upbeat album with plenty o' dance numbers in the form of the rumba. Not my favorite Gipsy Kings effort because the reason that I love them are for their sad songs."Obsesion De Amor" fills the bill on this album.
