Wow! I've never heard this one, ameer. I've only heard the ones on his CD, and another set of 10 from a private session where he both sings and plays. If there are more, please share!

This is a very nice record. I bought it new in the 1960s. But not for anything like 56 Euros! Like most students in those days I had poor playback equipment and poor training in caring for vinyl. Consequently my copy is now equal parts music and equal parts scratches, pops, crackles and hisses.
On the Hijaz taqsim his style is Arabic and his intonation is sometimes close to the Ottoman conception of Hicaz. He plays from D with the B just south of natural. Not B flat. I also remember that this recording was the first time I knowingly heard maqam Rast. I was fascinated with the "neutral" intonation of the pitch Segah. I had never heard anything like it at the time. Anyway, it's nice to be reminded of this recording. It brings back good memories.

I'm glad to have brought back a fond memory Jody but, at this price, I will also give the album a pass.

Thank you Ameer for the link to the CD !
I loved the description below the tracks (that I appreciated a lot !). It gave an idea of how it was seen by some greatest.
My Oud teacher told me that Farid Ghosn was one of Farid al-atrach oud teacher, my be he gave him some courses, or they were friends.... We all know that the mean Farid al-atrach teacher was Ryad al-Sunbaty... But the CD description is good to know ! Thanks !

The EP in question, with Hijaz etc, is available now for about 11 Euros. This is a public service announcement. I'm not the seller.
