5.0 out of 5 stars Music Lovers - Don't Miss This One! November 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm a music lover. I have limited exposure to Flamenco (Montoya, Segovia) and the syle of Gypsy music from the region of Central Europe so my review is not about Flamenco or Gypsy music. I first heard a song (Bamboleo) from this CD in a restaurant in West Africa in 1992. I went straight to the bar, got the groups name, then straight to the record store when I got back to the U.S.
In 1994 I saw them in concert and they were just unbelievable. They only played one encore but the audience was so wound up we would have stayed for another complete concert. Five minutes after leaving the concert I realized that I didn't have anything left - I was drained. Another encore would have added nothing to the evening and I was actually glad they stopped when they did. It was one of the most memorable concerts I've ever attended. All that energy and most of the songs are on this CD. If Bamboleo or Djobi, Djoba don't get you moving someone better call 911. In contrast, Moorea brings out the 'quiet' passion. The vocals are raw. By raw I mean not highly polished or 'pretty' but very sincere, honest and passionate, whether it's the high energy or quiet type. You don't need to speak Spanish to get the message.
This is a great gift. This is the first time I've purchased it online and am happy to share my review with others. They are a joy. If music lovers of every ilk and hue can't get turned on by the Gypsy Kings that number again is 911.

5.0 out of 5 stars My First One. One of the Best! April 17, 2003
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
"Gipsy Kings" was the first Gipsy Kings CD I ever had, and it is still one of my favorite ones. This CD is a good place to start if you are just getting into listening to this fantastic group. My favorite track on this CD has to be "A Mi Manera", better known as "My Way". I think that Frank Sinatra did it better than anybody else, but this version is excellent as well. Other great tracks include "Bamboleo", "Bem, Bem, Maria" and...well...the rest of them. This is an excellent CD, and it really gives you an idea about how good the Gipsy Kings are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gipsy Kings June 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Gipsy Kings first release was certainly a success. This Album is simply brilliant and probably the most classical of all their albums. Standout tracks are: Bamboleo, Bem Bem Maria, Un Amour, A Mi Manera, and the super hit Djobbi Djobba. The Album also contains four instrumental works which are all very good. My personal favourite is Moorea. Very Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have you ever been to Spain? August 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album will make anyone who has ever seen Spain (in a postcard, photo album, or through their own eyes) be mentally reteleported- and if you had no idea that Spain is one of the most musical countries in Europe, you will now. To say that this is a great example of how the Spanish guitar should be played and how Spanish music should sound is an understatement! The guitar sounds like a person, an identity of its own and the male voices blend in harmonies that no other nation (except Spain) could concur. I was left in a state of awe the first time I heard it, and now (after MANY instances of replay) I get chills every time I hear "Un Amor", "Bamboleo", "Djobi Djoba", and "Faena". Even for a non-Spanish speaker this is a great album to own; anyone can easily identify with the rhythm and feel of each song. It is truly a musical masterpiece and one of the Gipsy King's best albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for any CD Collection March 10, 2000
By Jessica
Format:Audio CD
In you enjoy Flamenco music at all you will adore the Gipsy Kings. Nicholas and Andre Reyes have astouding and powerful vocal ranges and the guitar is fast, furious and passionate all and all creating music to dance to to feel empowered to, in love to, or mournful to. My old Spanish teacher played them at the beginning of class; I still remember how she trembled and fought to keep from bursting into dance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always in the mood for this music July 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is excellent. It makes for great party music and always puts me in such a great mood. Their remake of My Way (A Mi Manera) is excellent. This is a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Universally Appealing March 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that got me hooked. After you give it a listen, you won't care about categorizing it as Flamenco or whatever. This is hot-blooded, passionate music appealing to the same kind of music afficionado. Listen or dance or both, it's all good!
