Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is a record for those who just love the sound of the guitar..., delivered with the fluency one expects of players of other instruments—but rarely gets from guitarists—and recorded with the greatest clarity and, a Romero characteristic, an absence of ghostly sounds caused by the left hand's movement along the strings." -- John Duarte, Gramophone [3/1992] "This is a record for those who just love the sound of the guitar..., delivered with the fluency one expects of players of other instruments—but rarely gets from guitarists—and recorded with the greatest clarity and, a Romero characteristic, an absence of ghostly sounds caused by the left hand's movement along the strings." -- John Duarte, Gramophone [3/1992] Read less
