My first awareness of this album was when I saw it for sale as a kid at a Costco store in the late-90's, in a gift-box, before Christmas. I doubt many of its recipients actually listened to it, though.

I have the film on DVD. Been meaning to give it a watch. I hear it's a cracker.

Of those who praise this, more of the people haven't actually listened to it.

Well, I've listened to this one if that counts

Basically any album that was innovative but not well developed. Like any of the early bluesmen or rock n rollers. Those who were influenced by them essentially finished the idea they had started and became a straight upgrade.

I've got the vinyls

>a straight upgrade

But the simplicity of the early ones is often part of the appeal.

It's worth watching, the backgrounds are great and the ending brings so many feels

I love Cuban son, but that album is produced so as to drain it of nearly all life and excitement.
just compare it to the original Chan Chan by Compay Segundo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVJHBYwff2g
now the BVSC version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnFfKbxIHD0
I listen exclusively to son recorded before they were competing with and defining their sound to be in line with (or against) the BVSC industry.

the thought of peole whose only experience with Cuban music is from BVSC-approved projects makes me wince a little. yes, many older musicians who were important to the scene finally got their due after years in obscurity. even Cachao supported at least 5 albums by himself as an octogenarian! but the best of this music was made up until the U.S. embargo begun in '62 killed off the economic base for its continued evolution. continues to this day, sadly.

I actually listened to it again today

>>61798545
do you've got a dl link for that record (el sol es lo más sublime). no lo encuentro en ningún lado :),
>>
>>61796709
>>61796834
heck no! neither of these CDs have left my car in months
>>
>>61798545
This, I have lots of recordings of Bienvenido Granda, Celio González, Daniel Santos (and lots of Sonora Matancera), Benny Moré, Celina y Reutilio and stuff but I don't have the gear to digitalize those LPs

never seen this before - either here or elsewhere
acclaim has a sense of "presence" to it - not so dissimilar to hype - kind of like inescapability. like the Oscars, for better or (mostly) worse.
so for me it this can't qualify as "acclaimed"
>>
>>61796881
I listen to this almost daily.
>>
>>61799583
Did you know about TMR or TVU&N before you got into music? probably not, doesn't mean they aren't acclaimed..

I didn't know about them, but there were lists galore mentioning them. for the record, both Beefheart and Velvet Underground rewarded many hours of listening with interest
I tend to prefer my Gypsies unelegant, as most flamenco singing tends to be:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoFXev9v_gI
for flamenco guitar, I need that voice! any great flamenco singer will take me over the top.
>>61799733
best-selling jazz album of all time - what else needs to be said about its unavoidablity on nearly every list ever? it's also bound to be overrated. that said, for his electric period I prefer what he did just before and after it: In a Silent Way and A Tribute to Jack Johnson
>>
>>61800015
no problem, anon!
>>
>>61796834
I've listened to this. I think it's important from a historical perspective but it isn't something I'd listen to all the time.
>>
>>61800131
Elegant Gypsy literally has pseudo-rumba flamenco track though. The rest is great Latin jazz fusion (but gets a bit wanky sometimes)
>>
>>61798545
nah, both are great. given the context I find the BVSC performance a more exciting listen
>>
>>61801382
what context - revivalism? the heartwarming story of oldsters back in the spotlight?
even if I didn't prefer the original sonically - which I do - I'd still be suspicious about this hype surrounding new product of an old style.
what's more exciting: being at birth of a style, or remembering its glory days? I know which one I prefer...
>>
>>61796460
I just listened to this.
First track was my favourite but the rest aren't bad. I watched the documentary a while ago but this was my first listen of the actual album.
>>
>>61801382
I just went back and checked the BVSC Live at Carnegie Hall performance - blows the original out of the water for sure.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXXmHbH3BLo
I wouldn't quibble about calling that one exciting. there's a palpable energy to most live recordings anyway
>>
>>61796460
Everyone listens to that though

>>61796709
plenty listen to this

>>61796834
>>61796854
>>61796881
these are fair points, though everyone used to listen to ALS back in the day (or so I've been told)
