"James Last is a German big band leader with a large fan base in Europe, although he has never had a comparable following in the United States.

One of the great masters of classical guitar is the Spanish Pepe Romero (Málaga, 1944). He gave with his father the first concert at age 7 and early 50s with his family emigrated to the U.S.A., where he lives. His career as a virtuoso guitar soloist has made him a still living legend of that instrument. Pepe Romero has become an eminent ambassador for classical guitar. This album features twenty favorite songs of Spanish and Latin American music, by authors such as Heitor Villa-Lobos and Leo Brouwer, along with popular topics and including a creation of his own father.
Album released in 1995 in Mexico by EMI Music Mexico, the first of two compilations, with 15 subjects among the most famous by singer-songwriter, composer and musician Joan Manuel Serrat (Barcelona, 1943) until the date of that edition. Joan Manuel is certainly internationally recognized as one of the most important figures of modern song and author both in Spanish and Catalan. The selection of items to include in this album was made entirely by himself, Serrat, which adds an interesting personal view of his choice.
