This compilation contains all selections from the Westminster album Spanish Guitar Music: Turina, de Falla, Sor and all the selections from the RCA album The Art of Julian Bream except for the non-Italian composers (Berkeley, Ravel and Roussel).

Webmaster's note:

The artist information on the back of the LP cover has a number of points that are incorrect. While Dr Boris Perott (not D. Perrot) did start teaching Julian in 1945, Julian did not meet Segovia until December 1947. Additionally, Julian's first London recital was actually at Alliance Hall in July 1948 and it was not till 1950 that he made his second London appearance at Cowdry Hall. The Artist section of the liner notes was provided by the Westminster editorial staff unlike the liner notes on the music and composers which was written by Sam Morgenstern.

Westminster/Deutsche Grammophon 5177848 - mono. November 2001
While this CD has a similar album cover to the prior LP Spanish Guitar Music: Turina, de Falla, Sor, it contains his first two LP recording for the Westminster label of composers in the Spanish style: Spanish Guitar Music: Turina, de Falla, Sor and Guitar Music of Villa-Lobos and Tórroba. The cover title is misleading as to its content by excluding the composers Villa-Lobos and Tórroba featured in Guitar Music of Villa-Lobos and Tórroba. Note: due to space limitations of trying to fit 2 LP albums on one CD, two Tórroba pieces were omitted - "Sonatina in A major- 1. Allegretto" and "Nocturno in A minor".
