Editorial Reviews

Hailing from the Reyes and Baliardo Gypsy families, this ensemble from the south of France has been playing 'rumba flamenca' since the late '80s. On this 20-track collection, the songwriting talent and virtuosity this unique group possesses is gathered together in one comprehensive set. Notable inclusions are the anthemic hit 'Bamboleo', from their debut, Gipsy Kings, the Italian cover 'Volar‚', from Mosa‹que and assorted cuts that wonderfully capture the wild energy these guys possess. In short, the Gipsy Kings are a celebratory bunch who know how to rock with a rhapsody of acoustic guitars, passionate vocals, and walls of congas, timbales, cabasas, and bongos. Check this caravan out. Sony.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best of one of the best! September 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many (and I really do mean MANY) years ago I saw a Pierce Brosnan movie that closed with the song "My Way" done in a Latin American style with some SERIOUSLY impressive guitar work and vocals that (although I don't know the language) would have, and should have, knocked Frank Sinatra right on his can! AND WAIT; there's more! My reaction to and desire for this song led me on a chase that lasted a number of years until I found out the band was the Gipsy Kings and finally got my first CD: "Love & Liberte'" which I have quite literally played into the ground. These guys are AMAZING! Their guitar work (largely acoustic) easily rivals Little Feat (with Lowell George) and would also impress the Eagles (think of the rerelease of "Hotel California" where at one point it sounds like at least 6 total 6 and 12 string guitars are at the crossroads playing for their lives. YES, the Gipsy Kings are that good. Don't make the mistake of getting hung-up on the language difference (if there is one). GET HOOKED ON THE MUSIC!
I defy anyone to listen to this CD and not find more that just a few things to love about it..... I find new ones every time I listen to anything they've done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gipsy Kings ROCK August 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Gipsy Kings have made the greatest album I own....It something I discovered many years ago at a concert and I have always been impressed with the combonation of jazzy up tempo latino rhythm with flamenco style. The style is called Rumba Catalana. ( This band is compiled of two families from the south of France ) Music is very strong with the aucoustic guitar. Its pure delight energy music. All the best songs are on this album and for a mere $11 you won't be dissapointed at all. I think I have used this soundtrack for more occassions than any other music genre b/c its so enjoyable and perfect to dance to, not just weddings and birthdays.
Djobi Djoba is my favorite song on this CD as well as Bomboleo
5 stars on this band/album

3.0 out of 5 stars It's no Mosaique February 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I chose this CD to expand my GK collection and was disappointed. Many of the cuts can be found on Mosaique and I wasn't moved by the others. If you're a first-time GK listener or looking to add to your existing collection, buy Mosaique. It is an excellent representation of the remarkable work of this group.

5.0 out of 5 stars They are simply SUPER!!! June 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you want to enjoy the happiness of being alive, or to cry for a lost love, or simply to enjoy the gipsy style of the Gipsy Kings they are simply SUPER. I got a cassette from them about two decades ago, when I still lived in Peru. When I moved to the USA my cassette stayed at home. So from time to time I enjoyed visiting www.youtube.com and listened to some of their songs. One day I wonder WHY! Why not getting a CD that I could play in the car. Call me crazy but I have been enjoying the same CD every morning when going to work, like charging my batteries; and the same story when driving back home, as re-charging my batteries again. The percussion is amazing, listening to the guitar is just a masterpiece in your ears, rhythm, strength, tenderness, .... it is amazing how many different and opposite emotions their music can convey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Uplifting - Makes Me Wanna Dance August 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I saw the Gipsy Kings in St. Louis, Mo very recently and were disappointed they didn't have any cd's for sale. I immediately went on Amazon.com and purchased several of their cd's, including this one. Their music is very uplifting! At their concert, it was impossible to stay seated ... people were dancing in front of their seats, in the aisles, and in front of the stage. It was incredible! Their music is like none other I've ever heard. This cd contains many songs that will have you tapping your feet, and have you wanting to dance no matter where you are. It's impossible to stay "still". They are an extremely talented group of musicians! Awesome cd! Priced at a bargain! I would buy any of their cds.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S GYPSY KINGS, WHAT MORE NEEDS TO BE SAID November 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Best of the Gypsy Kings. OK, it's great. They have popularized gypsy flamenco without watering it down. As expected from the sons and nephews of Manitas de Plata. If you like Flamenco or Spanish Guitar, you should love it. They know the musical genre, they are virtuosi on the guitar, and the sound is great. Unfortunately, I have to close my eyes to see Carmen Amaya dancing, but she would have recognized their music straight away and danced her heart out to it (as she always did). Recommended with enthusiasm!
