5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS ALBUM July 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Simon Shaheen is wonderful, and this is a great CD. I've been listening to it since high school (when it was originally released by CMP), and I'm now just short of twenty-nine. My favorite track, and really one of my favorite songs, is the uber-catchy "Longa Farahfaza." The addition of the bass oud really propels the song and gives it some funky oumph (pun intended). The tempos on the other songs tend to be slower, but the track I mentioned and the longer riqq/oud duet on the next track are well worth the price of the album. It's very seldom you'll hear this kind of repertoire with such high production values. If you enjoy this, I also recommend Mr. Shaheen's album devoted to the music of Mohammed Abdel Wohab. It rocks. It really really rocks. Fun-Fact: Dead Can Dance, the leading fake world music purveyors of the 80s and 90s, sample that one for the closing credits of their "Toward the Within" concert film.

The playing is wonderful. Simon shines in this series and the audio quality is exceptional. I wish they had a DVD for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simon Shaheen knows what he is doing January 12, 2007

Still exploring this CD, but very pleasing so far. I prefer Munir Bashir's CD, but this is also excellent.
