Buena Vista Social Club - Buena Vista Social Club: 25th Ann.
(180g Vinyl 2LP + 2CD + Book Box)
25th Anniversary 180g Vinyl 2LP + 2CD Reissue featuring Newly Remastered Audio by Bernie Grundman and Previously Unheard Tracks from the Original 1996 Recording Sessions Plus 40-Page Book!
Buena Vista Social Club is both the name given to this extraordinary group of musicians and the album, recorded in just seven days in 1996 in Havana's 1950s vintage EGREM studios. It was clear from the atmosphere of the recording sessions that something very special was taking place. However, no one could have predicted that Buena Vista Social Club would become a worldwide phenomenon – awarded a Grammy in 1997 and, at 8 million copies, outselling any other record in the same genre.
The acclaim of the original album has elevated the artists (including Ibrahim Ferrer, Rubén González andOmara Portuondo) to superstar status, inspired an award-winning film by Wim Wenders, and has contributed to popularizing Cuba's rich musical heritage. Produced by Ry Cooder for World Circuit, the timeless quality of the music and the sheer verve of the veteran performers have ensured that this will go down as one of the landmark recordings of the 20th century.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the album's recording, producer Ry Cooder and World Circuit's Nick Goldhave gone back to the original tapes and into the archive to produce this Deluxe 180g vinyl 2LP + 2CD reissue featuring newly remastered audio by Bernie Grundman and previously unheard tracks from the original 1996 recording sessions, plus a 40-page book with new liner notes and two art prints.
