Exciting music from Arabic guitar legend Omar Khorshid – material recorded in Beirut from 1973-1977 – instrumentals filled with impeccable playing by Khrorshid, who also plays Moog and synth, backed by percussion and some accordion for a really full, transcendent sound! Khorshid got little attention outside the Arab world, which is a real injustice if the music here is any indication. It's feverish stuff recorded at Polysound Studios with the latest production innovations of the time at their disposal – electronics are brought into the sound with grace and subtly, and none of the progressive elements compromise the influence of the great Arab composers who influenced Khorshid. Sublime Frequencies never disappoints, but this material is wonderful by any standard. Includes "Guitar El Chalk", "Wadil Muluk", "Sabirine", "Hebbina Hebbina", "Ah Ya Zaman", "Sidi Mansour", "Enta Omri", "Warakat Ya Nassib", "Taksim Sanat Alfeyn" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Feelin' Funky
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! ... CD
