Track Listing

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

    This up-tempo acoustic set recalls the classic arrangements of the band’s platinum-selling debut and includes a version of Buena Vista Social Club’s “Chan Chan.” The Guardian (UK) praised “their remarkable guitar work, driven on by rousing percussion or accordion.”
