Buena Vista Social Club heeft de ’25th Anniversary Edition’ van hun succesalbum ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ aangekondigd. Om het 25-jarig bestaan van dit iconische album te vieren bevat de jubileumversie naast de remaster door Bernie Grundman ook nooit eerder verschenen tracks van de originele sessie tapes uit 1996 – ‘Vicenta’ is daar een van. “The Buena Vista boys fly high and never lose a feather. If you miss the boat this time, you’ll have the blues forever.”, aldus producer en gitarist Ry Cooder.

De ’25th Anniversary Edition’, bestaande uit 2LP + 2CD Deluxe Book Pack, 2CD Casebook, 2LP Gatefold Vinyl, bevat een boek met niet eerder verschenen foto’s, songteksten en notities, art prints, uitgebreide biografieën en de geschiedenis van de legendarische Havana Club (exclusief beschikbaar in het Deluxe Book Pack formaat).

Juan de Marcos González: “Buena Vista Social Club has probably been the most important album of Cuban music in the late 20th century, and definitely the one that reopened the doors of international recognition for ‘Son Cubano’. Twenty-five years later I can still feel the positive vibes of the studio and, of course, the pleasure of having contributed to some extent to the album that rescued the music of my country and many of its great interpreters from the shadows.” Buena Vista Social Club medeoprichter-Eliades Ochoa vult aan: “Buena Vista Social Club brought together great musicians from the golden age of Cuban music and successfully took our traditional music to the rest of the world. It allowed me to be recognised internationally by the sones, guarachas, and boleros I had been doing since I was young. It also made me reconnect with musicians with great experiences whom I admired. Buena Vista brought us together through music, and we were a well-run family. On this 25th anniversary, we will remember with deserved pride those great legends who will always be present among us. We will celebrate with joy the legacy of the Buena Vista Social Club and the traditional Cuban music.”

‘Buena Vista Social Club’s 25th Anniversary Edition’ verschijnt op 17 september.
