Album Review

Inevitably, the death of Chavela Vargas on August 5, 2012 sent a couple of the legendary ranchera singer's albums back to the Spanish charts. This 2002 compilation offers a generous assortment of her classic recordings from the 1960s and 1970s, which usually paired Vargas' matchless phrasing with the guitar of Antonio Bribiesca. Virtually all of Vargas' most famous songs are featured, including "En el Último Trago," "Ella," "La Llorona," "Macorina," "Se Me Olvidó Otra Vez," "Noche de Ronda," and "Volver, Volver," among many others. This two-disc set also provides a booklet with Vargas' biography and discography.
