We have been José Feliciano fans forever.
He has been making music and entertaining the world for 50 years. Winner of 8 Grammys, recipient of the Latin Grammys Lifetime Achievement Award, and holder of over 45 Gold and Platinum records, José Feliciano has been acclaimed by critics around the world as "the greatest living guitarist".
One of the very first albums I ever bought for my own collection, back when an album was an album, was Loggins and Messina “On Stage”.
Most of the songs were already favorites and the rest became new favorites quickly as I played and replayed the album until I wore it out.
Way back when, when I was just getting acquainted with the Perera sisters, my then-future sister-in-law Idoris introduced me to the legendary Cuban musicians Hansel y Raul. I’ve been a fan ever since.
Their music is happy music.
