va - Mounaw'at Lubnanieh (منوعـات لبنـانيـة) - Lebanese Varieties Vol. 3: Suzana
My lil' brother scored this tape from an obscur shop some time ago - I play it over and over again in my car since then. The thing is I don't have sufficient education to decypher the names of songs or singers, or of the compilation itself. Even the fact that it comes from Lebanon was only deduced by the presence on the sleeve of the green cedar. If anyone can help decode a few words (the title at least) from the cover above, I would be very grateful.
Get it here.
* So we now got all the info thanks to Pr. Hammer, who solved the mystery in record time. Read through the comments for all of it.
