Buena Vista Social Club’s Lost and Found


Recommended Posts

Buena Vista Social Club, the original release, and Lost And Found are both offered as DLs at HDtracks in 96/24 and 44.1/24 respectively. In my library, I have the CD editions, the DVD editions including their recital at Carnegie Hall. Plus CDs by the talented singer, Ibrahim Ferrer, and pianist, Rueben Gonzalez, both genius musician talents. The music of this genre is intoxicating. Compels you to dance with the one ya brung or at least move. Difficult to just sit still.

 

The DVDs in 5.1 Dolby are highly entertaining.

 

Enjoying the music,

Richard

I am a huge fan of Ruben Gonzalez. chanchullo is an exquisite album.

His version of Siboney from introducing ... has to be among the best renditions out there.

Concur. Brilliant. In his 80s, Rubén Gonzalez is a Cuban Artur Rubenstein with technique and musicality that is stunning.

 

Enjoy the music,

Listening to Lost and Found ...

it's beyond me how some of these tracks did not make the original cut.

 

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I like some on this album better than the original.

I stated up front that I was not a fan, but I am being turned by multiple listenings. Very eloquent, expressive and technically impressive playing.

 

Welcome to the lost and found. ;>}

 

Enjoy the music,

Richard

 

Hmmm .. not a fan but maybe I should revisit them again!

I love the new album.

 

It is, however, slightly more compressed than the first release.

To be honest, the difference is minimal & music so engaging, I have no regrets & am thrilled to have the latest offering.

Recordings from the 90's typically rate in the DR 12-14 range.

A DR of 10 is stellar given that current releases are usually in the DR 6-7 range

Part of my cd collections is from Cuban music, everything they do is an earcandy!! Kuddos to cuban music... Ruben Gonzalez, Frank Emilio Flyn, Cachao, Lucrecia, Chaonda, Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, Eliades Ochoa, Celia Cruz, La Sonora Matancera, Perez Prado King of Mambo, and many others. It's does not matter where you from or what kind of music or taste you have but everytime you hear this music you'll jump out the couch. Trust me.
