How much did I love Buena Vista Social Club? So much. I’ve been listening to the CD for a few years now, but after having seen the movie for the first time last night, I realize how little I understood about the monumental effort and significance of it all. What an amazing group of people.


I was the other way around, seeing the film and then running out the cinema to buy the soundtrack.

And then, the track I most wanted wasn’t even on it.

But then it was on the free CD sampler that HMV were giving away.

And I went away chuffed with myself.
