Manitas de Plata

A legend of flamenco guitar......never saw him live in concert, sadly, but owned 4 of his superb albums. Much his work can be found on YouTube - check out Por el camino de Ronda as  one (brilliant) example! Then just sit back and enjoy :).

Ronda is a funny town back up from the coast near Estapona.....visited a time or two..has "it's claimed" the oldest Bull Ring in Spain.....my link ('ish),,,,raised hairs on the back of my neck at the concert,,,the same reaction walking out into the open Bull Ring...museum on site....

Little Hands of Silver....have some classical Spanish guitar Cd's but none of his.....have you seen the live concert of Segovia playing at the Alhambra in Granada?

When the dust settles after the game today I'll go through my Cd collection and note the "eccentric" corner...wonder if there are other shared not necessarily main stream occupants!

And the road to Ronda is , or was, an "interesting" one. A classic Hotel there ..I think..memory a bit fuzzy...Churchill stayed there but could be wrong..a "sister" classic Hotel in Algerciras.... what trivia we collect as the journey progresses!

Mrs C enjoying "My Life Is Murder"..(Melbourne?)...me not so much but ok.

No doubt that Sergovia was a great player, but for me nobody touches Manitas, when it comes to passions & fire. Absolutely superb.

No argument from me MT..I'm just amazed that anyone on here knew who I was talking about let alone actually appreciated the man's amazing talent.

I was "told" that the original art of Flamenco was in the vocal rendition and had it demonstrated one time in a very real Andaluce gathering....only as a comment and not as a fact...just what I was told.

Great result today...I do dislike That Lot....goes back to schooldays and the "hanger on" kids who couldn't play the game but gave us s*** about "That Lot"...only to fade away as the years caught up!
