5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album March 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Of all of Yma Sumac's albums, this is one of my all-time favorites. Being her first stereo album also helps, though the first Right Stuff CD reissues used the monophonic masters by mistake, which were recorded separately from the stereo ones. They are a bit different - in fact, the monophonic version sounds better on many of the tracks, but is impossible to find now. There were actually three different versions of this 1996 reissue but all look exactly the same on the outside. Fuego del Ande is a Folk album through and through and it is especially interesting to hear Yma's revival of her 1943 hit that she recorded in Argentina in her first sessions there, "Virgenes del Sol," which she sings here in fantastic "Vocalese" style. This was my first Yma Sumac album back in the '60s and is still my favorite - and that is from someone who owns nearly every pressing that exists from all the corners of the world, including many live recordings. Additional general comments: Yma Sumac says her range is five octaves, but the "official" range is 4 1/2 octaves, to answer the reviewer who wondered about it. Also, as a comment to another reviewer, Yma Sumac and Moises Vivanco were divorced by the time this album was released, the divorce having become final in 1957. Supposedly they remarried for the long Soviet Union tour in '60/'61, then divorced a second time after that. Her 1970 recording (released in '71/'72) was reissued on CD as "Yma Rocks!" and is available exclusive through the Official Authorized Yma Sumac Homepage. It is her second best, in my opinion - next to Mambo, of course. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Yma's Spanish Side October 6, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yma Sumac, the diva with the 4-octave lungs, is most widely known for her "Peru-via-Hollywood" styled music. In several albums, however, she explored other genres. Closely related, but vastly different, from the lavishly orchestrated Incan anthems she performs so well are the more Spanish-influenced tunes on this album. The arrangements are more spare, less "regal", and, to be honest, a lot less stilted and campy than the music and arrangements usually associated with La-Sumac. Yma, being of both Spanish and Incan descent explores and expands on her roots!

5.0 out of 5 stars INCA "PRINCESS" ROCKS! Party Record supreme December 28, 2013
My capacious CD stacks will accommodate only one Yma Sumac title and this Ultimate Party Record is the one obvious choice. Oh, Inca "princess" my foot! La Sumac was a calculating, chameleonic Showbiz Pro who deliberately scoped out her target audience, took aim, fired and then laughed up and down several octaves all the way to the bank. And we loved her for it (don't we all recall her Broadway run in FLAHOOLEY?). Authentic Incan folksinger my foot! Our Miss Sumac is no more an "authentic" folksinger than Peter, Paul or Mary. Check out the composer/arranger credits on any Sumac album and you'll find original compositions by Vivanco tailored expressly to Sumac's talents. And we loved them for it.

Vivanco's contribution on FUEGO is impressive, consistently lively and exotic in a pawky way. Miss Sumac even ROCKS--or gamely tries to rock--on Track 5 where she's evidently channeling rockabilly labelmate Wanda Jackson. This is your basic Exotica Party Record, and when all is said and done we can't help lovin' that Yma Sumac. She's a real Princess in my book. It is regrettable that the original cover photography had to be posed for by busy Miss Sumac's designated stand-in. Look closely and you'll find Ethel Merman on a rare day off from GYPSY, which ran rather longer than FLAHOOLEY.

5.0 out of 5 stars The incomparable Yma Sumac -- Fire March 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remembered this singer with the 8-octave range from the 1950s, and when I decided to have a Maya calendar survival party on Dec. 21, 2012 (yes, we survived the end of the world), the exotic decor just begged for Yma Sumac's music. Maya, Aztec, Inca, oh well, close enough. Our guests loved it, and a couple of the older folk also recognized her incredible vocal virtuosity. Legend has it that Yma was an Inca princess or high priestess. Another legend had it that she was really Amy Camus, a Jewish princess from Brooklyn. I guess we'll never know.

As it happened, I still own a couple of the original vinyl LP's but had lost my favorite one. Delighted to find that Amazon had several on CD, I could rebuild my collection. As Amazon expects a review of each purchase, this little write-up will show up under each of them. They are all fabulous. If you appreciate driving rhythms, exotic instruments, and a voice to vibrate through every nerve fiber of your body, this is the one.

I read about this recording in an interview with Bob Bain, the great studio guitar legend and arranger in the heyday of LA recording. Yma was an old school diva with a wild semi-operatic voice. The music is folk like but not. A giant Hollywood type production. What attracted me was the studio group which according to Bob had the usual five or six guitars--all of the cream of the studio crop, which included George Van Eps on acoustic guitar. Bob's comments were that George who was such a renowed soloist but when asked by Bain to play rhythm, as the true pro he did just that. I believe its was the same group that may have played on Jezebel, Frankie Laine, which had multiple guitars all strumming in a giant unison. I love this stuff because no one makes records like this anymore.
