Tri-fold, double sleeve jacket with two 180-gram LPs

The landmark Buena Vista Social Club concert at Carnegie Hall — July 1, 1998 — was both the start of a remarkable story and the culmination of a dream. This one-time-only event elevated veteran Cuban performers such as Ibrahim Ferrer, Ruben Gonzalez, Compay Segundo and Omara Portuondo to long-overdue status as international stars, and it transformed the BVSC's already critically acclaimed album into a commercial juggernaut.

Since then, the Grammy-winning Buena Vista Social Club, recorded at Havana's Egrem Studio by guitarist Ry Cooder, has sold more than eight million copies, making it the best-selling world music album ever, and the Buena Vista Social Club Presents imprimatur has come to represent an unwavering mark of quality.

LPs packaged in tri-fold, double sleeve jacket with two-sided four-color insert.

A must have for BVSC fans or aficionados. A freshness and spontaneity not found in the original studio recording. The vinyl pressing is very good. A historic moment captured on tape for all to enjoy.
