The next half is strictly Flamenco, also recorded within the same time frame of the first half. This is straight-up, in-your-face, loud and insanely-fun almost playful guitar playing by Los Romeros. Fiesta en Jerez alone is the reason to buy this album if that's what you're after, it's nine minutes and two seconds of pure genius guitar playing. In other words, you have to hear it to believe it, sadly it's not on Youtube (copyright laws and such). But aside from that the remaining five Flamenco pieces are equally stupendous in their own right and must be heard by any true fan of the classical guitar and Flamenco guitar music.
In summation this album is quite the hour, seven minutes and twenty-four seconds of music that will turn your brain on to music you might not have heard anywhere else in this quality. Surely this is a musical gem that will be treasured by anyone who has purchased it. This album and Spotlight on Guitar (which I'll review another time) inspired me to play classical guitar and it's enriched my life.
Keep in mind that this album is out-of-print so be fast if you want to get it at a great price. Should you need more details, the recording is classified as ADD. This basically states that an Analog tape recorder was used to first record sound, a Digital tape recorder was used later to mix and edit, then fimally the master transcription was also done of Digital tape.
