Bachata Roja: Acoustic Bachata from the Cabaret Era

Bachata Roja: Acoustic Bachata from the Cabaret Era is the first ever compilation of classic Dominican bachata. From the early 1960’s to the late 1980’s the legendary voices of Eladio Romero Santos, Leonardo Paniagua and Blas Duran spoke to the hearts of a generation. The dizzying guitar accompaniment of pioneers like Edilio Paredes and Augusto Santos charted the course of bachata’s rise, and for three decades theirs was the sound of the streets of Santo Domingo. iASO has selected here some of the defining songs of bachata’s pre-electric era.

The CD includes a colorful 32-page booklet with rare photos and informative song notes

Produced by: Benjamin de Menil, David Wayne, Edilio Paredes
Introduction & Photos: Deborah Pacini Hernandez

PLEASE! I need to find the "original"version and not the modern Blas Duran "A Ti no Te Quiero". Before they updated this website you could play a clip of it and Blas Duran was singing by himself. It was slow and dreamy and awesome. I used to come this page just to hear it and other clips "Nadie me Quita esa Hembra" Yo que si Tu que No. y ottos. I have been waiting around FOREVER for a release of the full copy of that original Blas Duran and others. Can you please just tell me where to get it because I am getting really frustrated hearing other versions and not hearing what I now love to hear!
