It had to happen sometime. Tomorrow Higher Octave Music is releasing a compilation with the rediculous title “Barcelona Nights – The Best of Ottmar Liebert Volume 1”. They only released two albums and a Christmas CD (Nouveau Flamenco and Poets + Angels in 1990 and Borrasca in 1991) – so how many volumes of compilations can they possibly be planning.

The sad part is that I had to find out from a fan, who informed me about this compilation, and I can tell you it depresses me. The record company put this album together without any input from me: they decided on the songs, they did the cover etc…..I had nothing to do with it. As an artist I feel violated. But I have some ideas…..watch this space in 6 months……….
