News & Reviews

  • The Best of the Gipsy Kings is now available on vinyl for the first time, from Nonesuch Records. The vinyl edition features this popular collection from 1995 on two 140-gram LPs. The initial success of this 18-track compilation, chronicling the first seven years of the group's Nonesuch career, illustrated just how popular the Gipsy Kings had become: It held the top spot on the World Music charts for a full year.

  • About This Album

    The Gipsy Kings’s self-titled debut was both a cultural phenomenon and a pop sensation. The Washington Post found it “bursting with passion and spirit, thanks largely to Nicholas Reyes's compelling vocals, layer upon layer of rhythm guitars, and more than a few sparkling Gypsy melodies.”
