A limited edition of the Camaron de la Isla 'Integral' box-set. It represents a veritable journey through his life and singing. It includes 21 original albums. The first 17 of them were made in recording studios by Camaron from 1969 to 1992 while he was alive. It was the "boom" period of "Las Grecas", and some of their styles can be heard here, mostly in the "bulerias". "Soy caminante" was his album released in 1974. The picture on the front jacket cover is the same one used in the previous album, but with another shade and design. "Camaron de la Isla" appears in larger type than Paco de Lucia, whose "special collaboration" is reduced to "collaboration". Ramon de Algeciras continues to play second guitar. Antonio Sanchez still appears as the author in the credits.
With the death from lung cancer of Camarón de la Isla (born José Monge Cruz) on July 2, 1992, flamenco lost one of its greatest vocalists. The son of a basket-maker, de la Isla revolutionalized the flamenco tradition with his contemporary-minded approach. His debut 1969 album, Con la Colaboracion Especial de Paco de Lucia, recorded with the accompaniment of virtuosic guitarist Paco de Lucia, remains one of flamenco's classic recordings. Although he retired from touring in 1979, de la Isla continued to produce groundbreaking albums.
A limited edition of the Camarуn de la Isla 'Integral' box-set. It represents a veritable journey through his life and singing. It includes 21 original albums. The first 17 of them were made in recording studios by Camaron from 1969 to 1992 while he was alive. "A generally calmer atmosphere can be noticed in this album". The second album of Camaron de la Isla, with the special collaboration of Paco de Lucia, was released at the start of the new decade. The graphic design of the first album was maintained, with photos of both of them and similar headings, but in this one Perez de Leуn went even further and placed the pair face to face in a position similar to the Mountain of Olives, complete with cross and an apocalyptic horizon in red tones. The yellowed faces of the performers made them seem as if they had just suffered an attack of severe hepatitis. Ole'! Leуn.
