AllMusic Review by

Arc Music's 2012 compilation Best of Buena Vista rounds up 18 recordings from musicians who earned popularity as part of the landmark album Buena Vista Social Club, including Raúl Planas, Compay Segundo, Pío Leyva, Jose Artemio Castañeda, and Soneros de Verdad. The collection isn't particularly well documented but the music is strong, so this is a good sampler for those who are looking to dig a little deeper than the Ry Cooder-produced 1997 album.
