Umm Kulthum - Zekrayat

FLAC:   Side A   Side B

Side A
01. Fakir Lamma Kont Ganby (Remember When You Were Next To Me)

Side B
02. Ya Tool 'azaby (My Long Suffering)
03. ???

Here is a spectacular Umm Kulthum tape (although, I think all her work is spectacular).  There's not much I can say about this tape even though I feel the need to put some words here.  The last minute of Side B is a short, instrumental piece with some synthesizers.  I'm not really sure why it's on this tape (probably just to fill space) since Umm Kulthum does not sing in it.  It's cool, though.  Kinda funky with a Dabke-esque synth sounds and lots of percussive drive.

Thanks again to daretelayam for translation and Romanization!

Here is a sound sample from Side A:

  1. I love this blog! Thank you. I would likely never have chance to hear these tapes if not for your efforts. I especially like that FLAC versions are available and that you include high quality images of the covers and of the tapes themselves.

    1. Glad you enjoy it! I do the FLAC and high quality images because it's something I wish other music blogs did. It's good to hear that it's appreciated.



    2. P.S. 3 more Umm Kulthum tapes are on the way.
