The original Buena Vista Social Club album was recorded for World Circuit Records over seven days at the vintage EGREM studios in Havana. Released in 1997, the album went on to become a worldwide phenomenon, selling over 8 million copies and helping to introduce Cuba's rich musical heritage and pre-revolutionary past to the world. - Now, almost two decades later, World Circuit Records are delighted to present 'Buena Vista Social Club' on double vinyl. This comes after a limited run that was released exclusively in the US and Japan back in 1997, with a subsequent re-issue in 2009 (US only). - Cut from the original analogue half inch tapes and mastered by Bernie Grundman (mastering engineer of the original release), the studio recordings have been lovingly pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
