4.0 out of 5 stars Pepe never ceases to astound! March 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Every time I put this cd in my machine I have to brace myself for the unbelievable energy that comes from the speakers. The control Pepe has over his rasgueados (flourish-like effect produced by the fingers of the right hand)and tremelos is by far the best I have ever heard. His flamenco playing makes you want to get out and learn the steps yourself just to see what he's projecting. The only place where the recording is "iffy" is his duet with his father. It's a little shaky but hardly noticeable, could even be the arrangement itself. The very last piece, a duet with his brother Angel, is my very favorite. Played with some kind of double-stinged instrument (like a twelve sting guitar but different somehow) is had a very thick, beautiful quality to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely February 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm no specialist of the Flamenco guitar - I bought the CD out of a collector's interest for the label, Mercury -, so this is a layman's opinion. Very enjoyable music and disc, TT 63:48, recordings made in April 1962 and they sound great, with exceptional care given to the transfers, I don't hear any tape hiss even in the soft passages. The CD collates the complete contents of Mercury SR90297, "Flamenco" (according to the liner notes, Pepe's first solo LP), and three tracks from SR90295, "The Royal Family of the Spanish Guitar", an LP which had all four Romeros playing Spanish guitar music - and here, on the CD, papa Celedonio joins Pepe in Granados' Spanish Dance, and brother Angel in Sinopoli's Vidalita (see uploaded photos). In fact, as enjoyable and often exciting as the Flamenco pieces may be, I almost prefer those last three (which include Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Tarrega). They are lovely, Spanish nostalgic. In fact, I liked them so much that I am about to click on the "buy" icon for The Royal Family of the Spanish Guitar. Done. And look at the price, too! Great liner notes also, "adapted from notes by Igor Kipnis" the great harpsichordist, very informative on the history and techniques of the Flamenco, and with precise descriptions of each piece. Pity the deaf who find this CD boring - but, hey, maybe they know so much more than us lay people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond entertaining!! June 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I play Flamenco guitar, and for anyone who knows flamenco - this IS flamenco! Fantastic! A MUST have! Anyone who doesn't know that, doesn't know music and passion - and specifically - flamenco.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring September 1, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Unfortuntely, this was one of my first encounters with the "flamenco guitar" and I have to say that it made me look away from flamenco for many years. I found it no more interesting than listening to a machine gun. Not until I heard Paco Peña several years later did I realize that not all flamenco had to be as boring as this CD.
