1994: Universal Wave UW1214-2
When a coworker spotted this CD in my hand as I was unwrapping it from its packaging, she hesitantly asked Does that say what I think says? The look of comic skepticism on her face said it all: Charo??? After I laughingly explained that I got it to hear for myself Charos reputed flamenco-guitar proficiency, she said shes such a goofball, I forget that she actually does have some talent .
Im not so keen on the synth stabs-nstrings which unnecessarily clutter a handful of tracks here, and Charos vocals are a little fuzzy (whether thats a recording flaw or a mix misstep, I dont know I do know that Spanish Spanish should be much clearer than this, and hers actually is), but the instrumental tracks amply compensate for those questionables. And a big thank-you to whoevers responsible for ALL the liner notes and lyrics being presented in both Spanish and English!
