Gorgeous original stereo copy of the first English language Lp by the Puerto Rican virtuoso guitarist. Purchased at one of my favourite chaz shops in Sandwich–they recently moved their records to waist height for ease of browsing. With a memorable, iconic sleeve, Feliciano! includes the hit cover of the Doors’ “Light My Fire” which provided an almost exact template for Will Young’s recent version. Their vocal timbres are not dissimilar. Never knowingly undersung, Feliciano spices his pleasant, unlikely pop covers with an energetic flamenco make-over, adding lush strings to endear him to AM radio fans.
Includes three Lennon-McCartney covers, two of which are instrumental.
