"this recording documents the stark beauty and powerful drama of unadorned authentic flamenco"
With the damp echo, occasional mutters, and clinking of glass-like objects in the background, this sounds as though it was recorded at a soundcheck in an empty club, which if anything adds to the haunting atmosphere. It's simple, sad, but effective material, delivered boldly and loudly by El Nino ("when he first sang a few notes as a test for my machine, the needle of my V-U meter hit the top and almost stayed there" writes Alan Brown in the liner notes).

El Nino de Ronda, a flamenco singer from Ronda, Spain, was found and recorded by Alan Brown of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1955, as an illustration of flamenco that was more authentic than the fare usually presented to tourists. Accompanied only by guitarist Carretero, Nino recorded material for Brown that ended up on the release The Real Flamenco. It's fine from-the-gut flamenco, sparer in arrangement than most other recordings of the style (even those from the era that also appeared on the Tradition label), putting Nino's searing, trembling voice to the forefront.
