These gitanos(gypsies) are the originals that spawned a whole movement and many imitators. I was blessed to have seen them perform live three times over the years and they never dissapointed. I was even lucky enough to mingle with them at the Cafe Sevilla and watch the women swoon over their presence after the concert. This CD is eight years old and an exceptional release. Long after it's inception I continue to play this CD because it is just that good. Los Reyes were at the apex of their careers when this was recorded. The new flamenco that they introduced globally is just the right mixture of flamenco and pop. My favorite cuts are those that are pure instrumental bliss like "Ritmo de la Noche", "Michael", Guitarra Negra" and the title track "Love and Liberte". I find that these show there true skills as they play like true gitanos. The songs that feature vocals are quite beautiful as well as they harmonize and sing with great inflection and passion. The innate beauty is in the soft and lyrical Spanish language that lends itself poetically to these gitanos. "Madre Mia" is a beautiful lament that in essence is a prayer to the Virgin Mary, "Without you I can't live". Lot's of great love songs are on this CD as Los Reyes sing of broken hearts and not being able to live sin ti(without you). Nearly every song is magnificent but another fave is "Montana" where a rarely featured Canut Reyes excells as the soloist. The song is made up of simple lyrics that praise the earth and the mountain where he was born. "Yo voy caminando ala montana donde naci"(I go walking to the mountain where I was born) is a repeated chorus that can have deeper meaning or taken for it's simplicity.Read more ›

Love and Liberte is another great Album, containing great tracks. Standout Tracks are: Escucha Me, Navidad, No Vivere, and the beautiful instrumental Love and Liberte. Again, the Euro release is different from the US release. On the Euro release, they added the song La Quiero, witch is a pretty good one. The version of Escucha Me is also much better on the Euro release. The order of tracks is also different. Both releases are however very recommended.

I have only about half of the Gipsy Kings albums, but of these I have to say that I favor this one the most. I recommend this album to those who like downbeat, soothing Spanish-guitar music. It sets an extraordinary mood in the room which it is being played in. Of all the music I own (aprox. 300 CD's), this is one of my favorite albums. Two thumbs up!

This album is one of my favorites and has been for five years now. I don't speak Spanish (especially not the version that's on this album) but the quality of this music voids such considerations. The Gipsy Kings are masters of the guitar especially. They sing with passion that transcends language and culture. Standout tracks are "Pedir a tu corazon" and "Montana." Absolutely love instrumentals such as "Guitarra negra" round out the album. I highly recommend this CD to any music lover, regardless of your mother tongue!

I heard a tiny clip of the title track, Love & Liberte, and I was hooked. Now, it looks like I want the entire CD. This music will instantly transform a ho-hum work day into a warm, Latin night. Glad I found it.

This is a really outstanding album by the Gipsy Kings. I think that this early recording has less of the commercial sound that some of their more "pop" selections sometimes have. Their music blends a bit of "pop" with a strong dose of traditional Spanish influence. This is a unique group that creates a very exciting blend all their own, with awesome vocals, phenomenal Spanish-style guitars, and often very fast paced rhythms that get you moving.

As excellent as this cd is, there really is no excuse for the price tag Amazon has placed on this item. I've had the record since it was first issued, and bought the cd new, for $3.25. The recording is over 20 years old, though the material is quite timeless.

I tend to agree with some of the reviewers, that this may be the very best recording, the most consistent of the wonderful work by the Gipsy Kings.

This work was released in the early '90s (I think), but anyone who enjoys the music of the originators of "Flamenco Rumba" will be happy to remember the songs that have been anthologized in other collections, and pleased to hear selections which are new to them. The title track "Lover and Liberte (an instrumental) is such a track. I am thoroughly enjoying the music.
