3.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best Introduction To Umm Kulthum December 4, 2005
This is definitley NOT the best of Umm Kulthum. This is simply recordings from the 20's and 30's and not Umm Kulthum at her peek. I would suggest songs from the 50's and 60's, and probably 60's for the western ear since this is difficult material to absorb if you are not an Arab music listener.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not great. August 28, 2005
I've always heard about the legendary Oum Kalsoum, so I sprung for a "best of" album. It is ok, but not great. Definitely not her best. I was expecting more orchestral backup, and may be some more variety. But the basic stuff is here. I enjoy listening to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality September 9, 2012
By Bill K.
Interesting stuff, with her powerful voice. But a poor recording which requires the volume to be greatly turned up to hear it.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent cd July 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
a very nice introduction to a type of music i was not familiar with, superb vocals but a little hard to deal with because of difference in culture, lack of enough experience to appreciate properly
