Ibrahim Ferrer 'Buenos Hermanos (Special Edition)' 2xLP
For this very special edition release, producer Ry Cooder has revisited the original mixes and added 4 previously unheard tracks, recorded at the original album sessions, to a brand-new sequence - creating a completely reimagined ‘Buenos Hermanos’.
Featuring Buena Vista stars Orlando ‘Cachaíto’ López, Manuel Galbán and Angá Diaz, a guest appearance from The Blind Boys of Alabama, Ry Cooder on guitars and the esteemed Chucho Valdés on piano, the Grammy-winning album’s varied repertoire includes fresh takes on classic songs and thrilling examples of the romantic ballads and boleros for which Ferrer is justly famed.
