Graham Mushnik - Selected Tracks [2007-2011]

Here is an amazing compilation of unreleased tracks by my friend Graham Mushnik. A splendid reunion of the bizarre, the fuzzy, the space-invaded and the beautiful; all with 60's tones of course.


You will find Graham's blog on the right, with more of his music.

FAIRUZ -- Ya Hala Ya Hala Ya Habibi

It's rather impossible to make a Fairuz Compilation. The Lebanese diva recorded more than 800 songs and the music, mostly composed by the Rahbani brothers, is always graceful.
Anyway here is a selection of 15 tracks taken from 300, because they're all perfect to listen to while eating peaches in the summer sun. And because they're from the 60's / 70's.

1. Ya Hala Ya Hala Ya Habibi
2. Baadak Ala Bali
3. Sa'idi Yessod Massakon
4. La Teatab Alayi
5. Yeszed Sahabak
6. Ba' adana
7. Ka'an
8. Ana La Habibi
9. Al-Bint Al-Shalabiyya
10. El-Ouda El-Minsiyyi
11. Khedni
12. Shalhat Al Harir
13. Aatini Al-Nay Wa Ghaani
14. Loulou: First Introduction
15. Al Mahatta: First Ouverture
