Among my vinyl collection, this album and the DISCO 12" version are amoung my favorite, played to death. When this came out I snapped it up. Yes it is Disco, in its most classic form, complete with single, disco 12", and this album. Also, its on CASABLANCA RECORDS, Donna Summer, Thank God Its Friday, Flash Dance, Village People...nuff said.
Here in Florida, it was a huge club hit, and the long version is still played today. There weren't that many Latin flavored disco cuts, but with Santa Esmeralda and another artist 'Gomez' you couldn't go wrong.
This is one of the timeless classic albums. I am just waiting for someone to grab this and do a remix CLUB version (DJ Sammy could do it or others) and make it a hit again.
It would be, its that good.

Although this is a good collection of tracks, up to 2 minutes has been chopped off each of the first 3 tracks. So if you are looking for the full length versions, you will want to buy the individual cds that the songs came from.

(...) Santa Esmerelda's music took off in the discos, particularly the gay discos. They were examples of the real disco artists, the ones who took ideas & genres of music and mixed and blended them and created new and innovative sounds. Yes, with that familiar backbeat, but then, that's what makes this disco. Their song Another Cha-Cha on a different disc was a mega gay-club classic, filling the floor with dancers every time. But this disc, Don't Let me Be Misunderstood took rock & flamenco and put it to a disco beat and really gave us a great conglomeration of sound.
All too easily people confuse what was commercial disco and what was the real, exciting, thrilling stuff. It wasn't Rock the Boat, it was I Caught Your Act (Hues Corp.) It wasn't Got To Be Real, it was Starlove (Cheryl Lynn). Hey, it wasn't even YMCA, it was San Francisco/In Hollywood (Village People). I'm so glad that many of the full length club hits are making their way from old 12-inch singles to cd. I just wish it was faster.

Hey, it's disco, yet, it's not disco !!!! By golly, I was one of those who threw a disco record on the pile to be burned when the local rock & roll radio station was protesting the flood of disco invading our fair nation. However, this is the one disco-like album I enjoyed. It is unique, provocative and highly listenable. The best song is the title song: an extremely different version of the Animals' Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. Due to the song's length, it's doubtful you will hear it on the radio. Try it, betcha' you like it !!!!!!

This was one of the best, most juicy latin-disco tracks EVER!!! DON'T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD is a classic!!! That latin rhythm with that brass... and the guitars... ooohhhh so so sexy!!!

I bumped into this CD quite by accident. I never thought I'd ever see it re-released. My folks bought me the LP when I was a kid somewhere back in the 70's... and I rememeber I loved that song.

Years later, I found it in one of those Disco compilations CDs... but it was the short 3-minute version. And I always got the feeling the original track was much longer...

16 minutes, actually... split into two continuous tracks: "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "Esmeralda Suite".

Musical extravaganzas like this... only in the 70's. And here it is complete! With brass, strings, everything but the kitchen sink! :P

Now... the 4th track You're My Everything is also a great ballad. One of those slow songs strictly for hot moments (It's all oh so 70's!!!).

And the 5th track is also a great disco song.

This album is such a great experience... I'm really sorry I never thought of getting it before.

Great memories!

While one can be forgiven for believing that this is the extended 1977 album cut from Santa Esmeralda, it ISN'T - and while very, VERY close in its arrangement, the lack of one distinctive idiosyncrasy is telling: at the end of the softer, acoustic refrain, Leroy Gomez sings, ".....my sweet, Esmerallllldaaaaaaaaa" and trails off into a loud sigh, somewhat like the one with which Paul McCartney ends "Junior's Farm" - NO such noise is heard on this recording - furthermore, Gomez doesn't sing the higher vocal part on the chorus as a falsetto in the original version; it's a LOT more forceful in 1977 even with production limitations - betraying his inability to do so any longer and making it feel a little less manic.....

I only write this advisory review because the 'Hits Anthology' version is virtually identical to this one, the guitar isolated more and mixed up front a good deal louder, less brittle on both than with the original, not to mention EVERY previous reviewer got fooled - I was misled by the labeling and particular sound sample to PURCHASE both.....there may still be some older disco anthology CDs floating around with the original full length track or longer single edit (retaining the acoustic interlude) on them.....
