Finally A Decent Gorme Sony Latin Reissue
I was hesitant at purchasing this 2CD reissue, as so many previous Sony reissues rehash the lovely recordings with Trio Los Panchos, that they've been trampled to death. In this set, all of Eydie's Sony Latin recordings are covered, making this a definitive Best Of. Granted, you cannot have everything. The Spanish Version of "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" (Culpame De La Bossa Nova) is missing, and the packaging is not up to par (outside box, but no Jacket booklets or inserts for the CDs (same for a 3CD set done on Vikki Carr). The music is the star here, as it covers from 1964-1992, and all four Sony Latin releases. There are songs from Amor, More Amor, De Corazon De Corazon and Eso Es El Amor. Because the latter two albums are so hard to find on CD being out of print, it is nice to have remastered versions of some of these great tracks. The lovely duet with Roberto Carlos of Sentado A La Vera Del Camino is included, as is Mis Amores with Steve Lawrence from Eso Es El Amor. For a complete set of the recordings with Trio Los Panchos, add the GL Release of Eydie's Amor and More Amor, a 2on1 album CD, to this great set. The Spanish "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" is available (but not sure if in print) on the Personalidad Series for Eydie Gorme Y Los Panchos (not the solo Eydie Gorme issue in the same series). This will probably have you at 95% in collecting Eydie's Sony Latin songs. Other GL releases include Eydie's other Latin recordings for other labels. GL is Steve and Eydie's own reissue label, as they own their own masters. However you wish to handle your own Eydie Latin collection, this 2CD set by itself is a great start.Was this review helpful?
