At last I received some “Best of Ottmar Liebert” CDs from Epic Records. I must admit that it is a nice compilation, although it would have been nice if they had asked me and we could have added one or two unreleased versions of these songs to make the package more special.
Ten years of life unfold for me when I listen to the album. Different versions of the Luna Negra band, different studios, countless tours in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, South America…ten years are a long time and it is strange to have it summed up on one CD. I do think the guitar sound got better with every album and the last three songs (from “Little Wing) on the compilation SOUND the best to me although there is always a special place in my heart for the songs from “The Hours between Night + Day”.
