Fiesta Flamenca

Federal regulations state that every LP record collection must have a Flamenco album. Well, they should anyway. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a high-quality Flamenco album for the site, but have not had much luck until now. You see, Federal regulations also state that certified Flamenco records must have at least one Flamenco dance performed ON the actual record itself.

Despite all that, I finally have one to present to you all. The performances here are top notch, and the record itself is in great shape. This is on the Montilla label, recorded in Spain and manufactured in NYC. If you listen to one Flamenco album this year, make it Fiesta Flamenca.

Have a listen to A La Feria de Grana:

Golden Guitar Magic

Here are three sides from a 1969 boxed set that has been Pleasure Programmed (TM) by the fine folks at a little-known magazine publishing house. I know what you may be thinking, “What does that magazine I see at the dentist’s office have to do with Guitar Magic and Pleasure Programming?” Everything my friend. Sit back and mellow out now. And seriously, these are pretty decent tunes. Have a listen:
