180g Vinyl LP!
Remastered From Original Analogue Master Tapes!
First Time On Vinyl!

Bearing the trademark of the most successful world music phenomenon of the era is the solo debut of Cuban singer Omara Portuondo. A key artist in the original Buena Vista sessions, Omara was among the most talked-about discoveries to emerge from the project, and has since - in her touring with Ibrahim Ferrer - established a name for herself as a performer to reckoned with. The alluring nostalgia of these romantic numbers, produced in Havana by Nick Gold, captures a lost era of music that has been resurrected by a new generation of music fans.

Omara Portuondo, the leading lady of the Buena Vista Social Club, is one of Cuba's most celebrated voices. Often hailed as the Billie Holiday of Cuba, Omara's album, originally released in 2000, takes as its theme "Unrequited Love - love lost and found": recorded in Havana with a dream band, orchestrated by Demetrio Muñiz, including Rubén González, Cachaíto López, Guajiro Mirabal and Jesus 'Aguaje' Ramos. Special guests include Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo and Eliades Ochoa.

It has now been remastered from the analogue masters specially for this first time ever vinyl release.

The kind of record that forces you to stop worrying and enjoy life to the fullest... an exquisite trip to the heart of Afro-Cuba.
-Rolling Stone
This album adds yet another magical chapter to the Buena Vista legend.
