Two years after the release of Grammy Award-winning, six million-selling Buena Vista Social Club, many of the same musicians went back into the studio to record the debut album of Ibrahim Ferrer, one of the stars of the BVSC. With Ry Cooder and Nick Gold producing, the release went on to sell more than one-and-a-half-million copies world-wide and elevate Ibrahim to superstar status.
The album is a collection of eleven songs by the golden voice of Cuban music. Using the Buena Vista Social Club rhythm section and featuring the piano of Rube´n Gonza´lez, this album takes the listener on a very different journey to that of any other Cuban record. It is an album of great subtlety and beauty, featuring an extraordinary stylistic range from the nostalgic 1950s American big band style, to stunning ballads with an unusual and opulent guitar accompaniment, as well as rich country-style songs.
Now for the very first time World Circuit are releasing the album on double vinyl. Mastered at Abbey Road the vinyl is pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket. The 2LPs are presented alongside a beautiful 16-page booklet and download card.
