Portugal: The Story of Fado

Overview

You won't find a better single-disc introduction to Portugal's heart-wrenching brand of blues. The word "fado" literally means fate, and there is a real sense of human fallibility in the singing and playing on every track. The selections were culled from recordings from the past 30 years, but this fine thread of humanity runs through them all. Beautiful music, tastefully programmed.
