Every now and then I like to hear to a Spanish guitar being strummed like there is no tomorrow. I came across the vinyl version of this 1977 collection of compositions that fully delivers. As if there may be a necessity, Pepe Romero shows in his humbleness, that he’s one of the greatest guitar players in the world.

I somewhat prefer the parts that have the most tensity, but beyond that I just can’t get enough the [indescribable – yet let’s try and call it serene and utterly and deeply melancholic] Spanish guitar sound altogether. It’s almost like travelling through time, dreaming that a past life of mine must have been somewhere in old Spain…

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.
