Racies: Roots of Buena Vista is the ideal disc if you're looking to expand your knowledge of the musicians associated with the Buena Vista Social Club. Included on this 17-track collection are early regional tracks from Ruben Gonzalez, Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer, and similar musicians that retained obscurity outside of Cuba before the international B.V.S.C. explosion in the late '90s.
